The College of Business Administration or COBA for short is a really great school to attend. The business program itself is very structured and competitive. The students are taught on all aspects of business to have a overall understanding. Then they are taught their specific major specialization in my case its Global Logistics and International Business. There are others such as Management, Marketing, and accounting. I have found the subject material very interesting and can't wait to learn more. If you have a meal plan at Savannah State King Frazier is the place you'll want to get food. They have buffet style and healthier options. Don't waste your time at the student union food court unless your using the Corner Café . You'll get more food at King Frazier Dining hall.

Savannah State University has many great opportunities for their students ! Though there could be time when you feel a bit boxed in you have to just get out of your dorm room and just explore a little bit more because there are so many organization on campus that'll educate you and keep you active , if your classes are not enough already. The best advice I could give one is to not be shy and adventure to the best of your ability! It is also important to build a good connection with your professor they may have job opportunities for so just speak with them and do not be afraid to share your story with them.
Savannah State University is a great college. It is a Lively school. At Savannah State University is the place to go to meet many different kinds of people. The campus is always looking nice and neat. It especially look good in the spring and summer when everything is blooming and alive and thriving. I do wish that the safety on campus could be better. There are shootings in and around campus and is quite concerning. Thank you!
