I am a senior student.Quite BrightPsychology
I am a senior student. If you want friends, join a fraternity or sorority. If you don't, be ready to be called a "peasant" and feel probably wont make many friends and they friends you do make ill end up killing themselves or feting murdered (lost 2 to suicide and 1 to murder this year alone). Also, girls - you may get raped. It has happened to me and to more than three other friends of mine. And if two of my friends (and fellow students) killing themselves doesn't tell you how horrible this place is, then I do not know how else to get the message across.

I am an art major and am inQuite BrightArt & Design Department
I am an art major and am in my last year here at Georgia Southern. I still remember being told about the great facilities as GSU and teachers who knew their stuff but I have to say, things are not well here. The studios are small and crowded, things are never fixed, and we have can't enter into the studios to wrk past 11pm. That is if you are lucky to have a ID card that works in the first place - I gave up months ago. One more thing, I adore a few professors here but it is so clear they all hate each other. I wish I coulda went somewhere else.

This is the community college of the UniversityBrightElectrical Engineering
This is the community college of the University System Of Georgia. The Faculty is a mixed bag of brilliant professor and incompetent ones, Professors who care about students and those who could not care less. The course work is not necessarily, but the way it's presented and taught makes it more of a hassle than it is. If you want students to succeed and be challenged, hire better professors and put more resources into academics and more programs. Georgia Southern is a good starting point of your college career, but you definitely do not want to stay here if you plan on doing any meaningful work with a degree. My advice: Start trying and putting in effort while your in high school to avoid having to come here.
