You're just a number; it's all beer andSuper BrilliantDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
You're just a number; it's all beer and football. There is great infrastructure like the Bio bldg and the Rac, but a large misplacement of funds. Many clubs and organizations, but terrible scheduling and awful social environment. People lack creativity and maturity; like your nightmare high school experience on steroids.

Question
I am a female student from Atlanta andBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I am a female student from Atlanta and I have enjoyed GSU and plan on graduating from here but some things really could be better. The most important factor is safety and security, both of which are poor. Nonstudents routinely get into the residence halls and steal stuff and there have been some assaults, both indoors and outdoors. There are plenty of police but they mostly just drive around and look. The campus is very pretty and well maintained but there really isn't much to do (except for sports events). Statesboro is a dump with very snobby people who really don't want the students--just their money! The faculty is well qualified but not really that motivated--GSU caters to C+ students so they do what they have to and not much more. I still believe that there is enormous potential here if the administration would have higher admission standards and the faculty had greater expectations.

Question
I am in love with Georgia Southern.Quite BrightArt & Design Department
I am in love with Georgia Southern. The campus is absolutely beautiful and the dorms are the best in Georgia. The professors are always extremely helpful and knowledgable. Diversity and community are emphasized. I think the two main factors people hesitate about attending GSU is the town. Statesboro is very small. If you are from a big city, you should definitely visit the school and the town before making the decision to come here or there may be some culture shock. As far as things to do on the weekends goes, there is a movie theatre, a tiny mall with a few stores, some cute shops downtown, and a bowling alley and putt putt golf. If you want to get out of town for the weekend, Savannah is about 45 minutes away. The second factor is that many people have labeled GSU as a "party school". Many kids do go out at night to the local bars and clubs but that will be found in any college you attend. Partying definitely doesn't dominate the student's lives here. There are plenty of other activities to get involved with such as intramural sports, clubs, or religious organizations such as the BCM, Wesley, and Chi Alpha. Overall, I love Georgia Southern and wouldn't consider going to any other school!
