Georgia Southwestern State University Reviews
My overall experience here is pretty good, the students here are friendly and the professors are so engaging. I love that the school offers free tutoring and that they're able to work around your schedule to get the help you need. Not to mention they inform the first year students of practically everything, there's no need to worry this school supports you along the way and never hesitates to help.
I have only been here a semester but everything is great. There are tutors here to help you get an A, ice cream in the cafeteria and it is easy to navigate around campus. Only Biology majors have class on Friday's, so we have a longer weekend and there are so many activities to do when you stay for the weekend!
I spent my first two semesters as an online student after transferring from a two year institution but my contact with the Georgia Southwestern State University staff from the admissions office to my advisor as well as teachers has been awesome. They are always available to talk to me about my concerns or anything that I needed help with. I cannot say that about the college I transferred from. I plan to earn my Bachelor of Science degree from Georgia Southwestern State University and then move on to acquire my Masters degree in Physician Assistant studies.
