Almost everyone is Greek, whereas I am not,Quite BrightNursing
Almost everyone is Greek, whereas I am not, so finding friends seems to be easier for others since they automatically have "brothers" and "sisters" once they get in their house. But, getting involved in other student activities, such as BCM and volunteering at an animal shelter has brought me great friends as well. As far as academics go, I chose a naturally tough major (nursing), so i can't complain about it being difficult considering i knew what i was getting myself in to.

Question
Mass Communications department hasBrightCommunications
Mass Communications department has a Sr. Development project, which is a resume, cover letter, and portfolio. The idea is great, but the execution is ridiculous, since it is personal preference per professor on what material he or she likes and they contradict each other.

Question
This was my first choice school, but nowQuite BrightBiology
This was my first choice school, but now I wish I would have went to North Georgia. During my freshman year, I, like every other freshman, was given a schedule for my fall and spring semesters. First of all, I was only given 14 hours each semester. To be considered a sophomore, i needed 30 at least! So I was already behind. Then, I had to sit in classes with teachers who barely spoke English! I studied so hard! I went to every tutor session, and still ended up failing to the point where I had to withdraw from the classes because there was no way I was going to pass. So then I had 10 hours that semester leaving me with 24 hours by the end of the spring. I decided to take a summer class because I needed more hours in. For four weeks, I studied my butt off making decent grades. I bombed one test, but was reassured I would be ok since there was going to be a dropped test and a curve at the end of the semester. At the end of the summer, I get my grade back, and it was a C! no test was dropped and no curve was given. So because of that class, I have lost the HOPE and only have 28 hours... I am a second year freshman today and am still treated like a freshman by the school. My adviser was of no help! This semester, I was put into a class that was added last second because there were so many students who wanted to take it. Because of this, we are the only class without a student instructor. I went to the help center in the library and the paid tutors had no idea how to help me with my work. So I am failing another class, but it is too late to withdraw because my instructor never put out midterm grades so I had no idea I was failing until it was too late. Also, because I am still a freshman, I got bottom of the barrel picks for next semester classes. I am trying to transfer out, but if I applied somewhere else now, I would be considered a freshman for an entire year!

Food is disgusting! I have had food poisoning on multiple occasions, plus the staff is ALWAYS rude!
Dorms are disgusting! I cant tell you how many roaches and silver fins I have had to kill! And if you put in a work order, don't expect anything to be fixed for at least two months.

Milledgeville area is really ghetto, I DO NOT recommend going places at night, we get plenty of emails talking about how people have been mugged, jumped, and sexually assaulted.The funny thing is though, I came here for pre-pharmacy, because on the tour, they said they had it... well they don't and never did... I am basically trapped here for another semester... Please avoid if possible!
