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.

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.
Savannah State is a pretty good school in my opinion. To me your college education and experience is what you make it, it can be good if you make it good or bad if you make it bad. Savannah State University academically has been sometimes pretty easy and sometimes quite rigorous. Most of the professors are very lenient and understanding so its not too hard to pass your classes. SSU is actually pretty safe just don't get into anything with anyone and you'll be fine. There are lots of activities to get involved with on campus and the student organizations are plentiful. There is always something to do because of all the events, restaurants, and shopping there is to do downtown and in Pooler which is about 25 minutes away. I have had a great experience at Savannah State University so far and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to go into engineering, marine biology, mass communications or business.
