The Department of Mathematics at SU is great!Math
The Department of Mathematics at SU is great! My minor is in organizational communication, so I have some experience with that department as well. Shorter was key in helping me get to where I am now. Some of the reviews may speak negatively of the atmosphere, but it's as if they expected a clearly-stated Christian school to be non Christian. If you understand you are attending a Christian school who is in association with the Georgia Baptist Convention and in the south, then the atmosphere should not come as a surprise. If you don't want a Baptist Christian atmosphere, the don't attend. As a transfer student, make sure you speak with your advisor about WHEN certain classes come around. Some are only offered on even or odd numbered years, so don't miss them. This is true for freshmen starting there too, they just have a little more time to play with. When placed with a peer mentor, take advantage of it, they have lots of knowledge about the school already. Hang out in the FSU to meet new people, especially commuters who may not feel as involved. Ask questions; your education is in your hands now.

I hate this school.Average
I hate this school. The is very costly for no reason at all. You will be in extreme debt at the school if you do not have any scholarships. The tuition is outrageous. The school is old ran down and does not look up to par. I hate this school so much words cannot explain. I hope the school gets shut down and banned.The administration claim they are so holy but so evil behind close doors. I appreciate this website for letting me vent all the pain and hate i have for this school.

I've grown up in the town with ShorterQuite Bright
I've grown up in the town with Shorter & it's rival Berry. The teachers are great. All of them are very friendly and want to help you. Also, I have joined a Sorority and love it, but that's about the end of what I like about Shorter. They're cutting majors and the majors they provide, aside from Nursing & Theater, suck and really aren't worth the time. If you aren't a Baptist or Evangelical DO NOT go to this school. I've learned the hard way. You're forced to participate in their insane "Baptist" practically Evangelical religious services and 99.5% of the students are the same way creating serious isolation for those that aren't. I'm just a Freshman, but I shall be transferring as soon as I possibly can.
