There are a variety of different opportunities that are presented at Savannah State University, such as holiday events, concerts, Greek life, sports, fashion and talent show and so much more. Savannah State even gives student the luxury to introduce opportunity to their peers and the community themselves. Although, there are an abundance of amazing positive aspects of SSU, like any other college, there are also contras. Some may agree that it is very difficult to obtain help from certain officials on campus; such as the financial aid office, the cashier's office and even some advisory officials. Also Savannah State University is a popular diverse HBCU, which is located in the middle of a low income, high crime rate community, which could definitely entice a major concern amongst the students and campus.
Review Savannah State University
Savannah State University is a wonderful institution to attend. We have wonderful and different organization and active Greek life. If you want small class sizes and one on one attention with you teacher, Savannah State University is the place to be. We have numerous tutors on campus. They also provide transportation to a local mall and Walmart for free. If you choose to ride the city bus you can ride that for free as well. Savannah State University also have a wide range of majors and more to come especially in the science department. The food is also awesome. Savannah State University is the place to be.
I attended SSU as a freshman. There were a lot of students from my high school and other high schools near where i lived, so it was easy to connect and make friends. Savannah State is like a family school everyone likes to party together especially around homecoming. The professors really are there for you and want to make sure you pass, they will really work with you to keep you on track. The campus is small so pretty much everyone knows each other and gets along well. The dorms are all nice, the freshman have some co-ed dorms and some traditional dorms. The upperclassmen have a choice between on campus apartments and on campus town houses which are both nice and well taken care of. The campus has three different food places, each consist of different types of food such as the cafeteria, the union ans tiger express. The school is an HBCU but is also very diverse. overall I enjoyed attending Savannah State and would recommend upcoming freshman to attend.
