Valdosta State University Reviews
I loved going to school at Valdosta State University! The diverse scheduling helped while I was working full time and attending school. I usually was able to complete the courses I needed around my work without having to struggle getting to either on time. The staff and advisers were always very helpful whenever I did have a scheduling conflict or needed to be added into certain classes. The professors also were very responsive to emails when I did have a conflict or needed help understanding an assignment. However, what I liked the most about Valdosta State was feeling like they generally cared about the community. There were so many opportunities to step up and lend a helping hand to someone in need. They also hold an annual Relay For Life event that takes place on the front lawn to help sponsor cancer research and to help those affected by the disease. Being able to participate in these activities really inspired me to do the most to help others.
I am a senior here at Valdosta State University! The campus is beautiful, with reasonable tuition and housing rates. Everyone is very friendly, and are eager to assist your educational needs. There are various organizations that allow you to connect with others that share the same interests, and enjoy your time as a student. Professors are willing to assist you outside of class and provide a genuine care for student success. The Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Miller, is always willing to reach out to students to connect with their interests. Overall, a positive atmosphere and a great school!
I think Valdosta State is great overall. The only issue I have would be with the parking availability and a few professors. Some professors do not show much interest in you, but the few that go over the top for their students make up for the not so good professors! I will say that every professor I have encountered in the nursing program has been great and beyond helpful. They have made a program that has a reputation of being very difficult to a very tolerable, educational, and somewhat fun program!
