Valdosta State University Reviews
Valdosta State is a great school to attend. The years I have been here have been very influential to my my life. The school has a lot of extracurricular activities that will lead you in the positive direction. The professors will work you hard, and you will get very little sleep due to all the work you have to do. In the end it’s all worth it, because We all know that we are getting one step closer to accomplishing our goals of graduating from the amazing Valdosta State University!
I have been a student at VSU for about 2 years now. Do I love the area? Yes I am not a huge fan of the school and what it offers. I have had about 3 bad professors since I have been here. Bad as in, they never showed up on time even on test days but expected 100% of effort out of me as a student. I also had a teacher who didn't speak English very well and I was taking chemistry. Lets just say my grade and GPA suffered traumatically. The food options off of campus and at the Student Union on campus are great. Palms Dining hall and The Blazer Grille need some work. Very nasty at times and never have the resources they need to run a decent service. Georgia, Centennial, and Hopper Hall are the nicest places to stay on campus but if you have a choice, Stay OFF campus! There are more than enough apartments around our campus fro upperclassmen to stay. VSU's campus is absolutely beautiful. I love this location and being so close to Florida is a plus.
The years I have attended this school were not pleasant. There's nothing to do outside of campus, but you are within minutes from Florida (some professors commute to teach at the school). Most of the kids go here to get their grades up and transfer out of the school within 1-2 years. There questions about where our money was going and why, terrible parking, a lot of controversies including the flag, supremacists, Trump, Ben Carson, overcharge for certain things, and loads of other stuff. There isn't much open-mindedness because of the area it's in. But it tries in certain areas especially when it comes to student involvement which is where people take pride in the school. College is what you make of it (the friends I made made the place bearable), but with as many distracting controversies and unanswered questions I never truly felt at home there.
