The University of North Georgia at Gainesville, formallyQuite BrightPsychology
The University of North Georgia at Gainesville, formally Gainesville State College, is a great school to go to in order to complete core classes. While the professors may not be overtly friendly, they are usually more than willing to help with academic or personal problems. However, like any other college there are a few professors who clearly could care less about their students, and are more interested in their own scholastic endeavours.

The classes themselves are relatively easy, depending on your major, and completing your core classes here is a great way to get your GPA sky high.

The school offers very few BA or BS programs which makes transferring almost a given, however with the new merge into the University of North Georgia more programs will be available soon.

Campus life is okay, but not suited to me personally. The majority of the campus is Conservative Christian and there are plenty of student clubs for those with similar views, however any other viewpoint is generally unwelcome. The campus is generally diverse in terms of race though. Overall, GSC is a cheap way to boost your GPA before transferring to a bigger school that offers more programs.

Question
While smallish, and with a local reputation ofQuite BrightEnglish
While smallish, and with a local reputation of being the school where anyone is accepted, GSC is really a good school to go to. The profs are helpful and the credits count. You will know the subject by the time you finish, and you can ensure you get good professors by asking around or going to ratemyprofessor.com .

The student center -could- have a few more power outlets, though :/A great place to go to get your core credit classes out of the way if you plan to transfer to a bigger school like UGA.

Question
University of Oakwood is a top notch college.Super BrilliantZoology
University of Oakwood is a top notch college. They have Great, and I mean GREAT security guards. On your scenic drive into the campus, as you pass by lake Donkey Punch, be sure to watch out for the ducks, and the pigs(cops). Acceptance is a bit on the tough side; I think they are now requiring you to actually graduate high school. As you can tell, University of Oakwood a.k.a. Gainesville College a.k.a. Harvard on the Hill has well surpassed my expectations and goals in life.
