In Information Technology, you'll need to enter with a fair amount of technical experience already under your belt. Sometimes the professors are rather patronizing, but others might expect you to know things they never taught you or understand a new concept with minimal explanation. The difficulty of the material itself covers the same range. I would not recommend taking this major here unless you are passionate about it and already possess substantial knowledge of the subjects you will be studying. The class selection is extremely limited, with only one or two of each available per year in some cases, so you won't have much flexibility in choosing your schedule or professors. The program is new to the school though, and should improve over the next few years as it is better implemented and more professors come in.

Pros: The social atmosphere is nice. People will generally give you your space if you make no effort to interact, but will be happy to offer help if you ask for it. Most professors are very passionate about what they do, and ready to help out after class. The course difficulty spans a wide range, so be sure to ask around for tips when choosing a class schedule; however, as long as you have good study habits and pay attention to the syllabus, most classes should not be too challenging. The features of the Macon campus include an impressive gym (open to all registered students), gardens, a police station, and a library with helpful staff, to name a few. Despite the area's bad reputation, the campus itself feels very safe. Tuition rates are rising now that the college has become a university, but it is still more affordable than the other local options.

Cons: The staff at the bursar and registration offices are highly prone to making mistakes, and the advisers always seem to be busy, so always double and triple check your records because you'll probably need to make corrections when applying for classes or financial aid. Transferring credits is also difficult, and the online student information system can be confusing and slow to update.
I am in the Nursing program, so my workload is pretty heavy. It may not seem like it when you see the schedule, but with several assignments due you have to manage your time wisely. I was able to get an externship at the hospital after my second semester. We do clinicals at several different hospitals, so transportation is very important. Classes can be long depending on what it is, Med. Surg. 1 and 2 are like three hours and twenty minutes long with breaks. You have to do a lot of learning on your own. If you don't read and practice as many questions as you can you did not study. There are some problems that need to be worked on, but it is an okay program overall. It mostly gets you prepared for boards (NCLEX).
