Savannah State University Reviews
I love SSU, this transition from high school to college, and living with my mom to living on my own was not at all overwhelming. The campus is manageable. The floor plan of Tiger Place and Tiger Court are nice. If you want things to be done, like financial aid for example you have to be very determined and on top of it! The parties are lit! The food is defiantly a hit or miss. The teachers I’ve had have been helpful. Overall, I love my SSU.
Savannah State University being an HBCU has given me the experience of a life time. As a person of color, attending an HBCU and learning about not only the history of my school, but also the purpose of HBCU's in general has given me much more of an insight on just how important they are to this country. Like every university it has its minor problems and hiccups, but that is overshadowed by the great things that go on in this city and on campus . The amount of diversity seen at the university is quite astonishing as well, the level of acceptance that comes from my peers is heartwarming. This school in its entirety has helped me find myself, help me find life long friends and given me a pathway to have a prosperous future.
I love the environment at SSU! Easy to get around campus. The professor not only want you to pass, but SUCCEED, in their classes. They put you to your highest potential and encourage you to do more than what is expected from you. In class, i can actually understand what is being lectured and participate in class discussions and debates, which can actually be pretty fun sometimes.
