I wouldn't recommend coming this school

Apr 29 2014Biology
I wouldn't recommend coming this school. One most students are friendly. however, majority of the "Greek Life" students are very racist. They are not friendly towards brown skin people. In Greek Village on campus it is nothing but White Fraternities and soroities. They laugh because the brown ones arent. This school acts like it doesn't have any resources when it does. There is nothing fun to do around this campus unless you are in Greek Life. If you try to party with them and you are a brown girl they will let you in. They will not let in the brown males. This is not right. they are outwardly rude at this school. Do Not allow orientation to fool you. They are not friendly.

This is a school were you get up

Jan 26 2014Computer Science
This is a school were you get up in the morning go to class. Go back to your dorm study, go get some food, go back to your dorm and sleep. The social atmosphere is horrible. If you are not a part of Greek Life on campus you will have a very limited pool of friends, your roommate and maybe 2 other people. It is because of the way the buildings are layed out. You have the outside door, then a kitchen area then another door for your room. Every building on campus is designed this way. If you were to walk out of your room at noon the hallways would be empty. The school has tried to run "parties" on campus but they are very underdeveloped and very boring. If you are looking for "College Life" go somewhere else. This please is snoozeville.

I haven't enjoyed my time at West Georgia,

I haven't enjoyed my time at West Georgia, but I didn't really expect to. I knew that I was going to be here for one year to finish my core requirements and then transfer to a better university to do my major.

A lot of people here do that, it's a stepping stone school, really. If you stay here all four years, you'll see most of your friends leave to go somewhere else.

There is nothing to do on campus unless you're interested in frat parties and getting drunk off your ass (This school is #10 in the nation for most alcohol related arrests. Only the best go West!)Even the cops make fun of the student body for how generally stupid and absorbed in parties they are. Campus social life is lacking, and off campus life is nonexistent. If you want to do anything off campus plan on driving an hour into Atlanta, because there isn't shit to do near the University.

Also, the academics are kind of shit. Every class is extremely easy. I've taken 23 hours one semester and 21 the next and I haven't had to pull a single all nighter or anything. The classes are so easy that I am a freshman and I'm taking senior level classes. If you are looking for a school with a big party scene and easy academics, West might be for you.
