Overall Georgia Southwestern is a good school, and I enjoyed my freshman year there. I like that the campus is small and everything thing is close. This school is excellent with academics, and they have a great nursing program. Although the school is in a small town, you can still find things to do and have enough fun without getting side tracked.
Review Georgia Southwestern State University
Through this first year, it has been hard but also easy. Some of the professors are understanding and love to teach and help students to get a degree. Some of the professors decide from day one that they teach and that's it, they reader there notes for that day and say go study. Overall the campus is friendly, peacefull, and affordable with the help of finacial aid.
The professors are generally interested in their students' successes, and the faculty to student ratio is really nice; there is a lot of opportunity for one-to-one interaction. However, campus-wise, a lot of the buildings need updating still, especially the English building. This building is not even ADA compliant, as it lacks an elevator. The buildings that have been updated are very nice, however, and the nursing and psychology department buildings are gorgeous. Overall, it is a very good college to attend if you want to be closer to home, or if you're looking for that small town college kind of feel.
