Just in case the date doesn't show for this it is June 20, 2022. I will try to keep this short and sweet, but no promises. To start, the on-campus living conditions are uninhabitable and I say this because of the mold. There is mold to a point in all of the residential buildings that students are getting sick living in the halls. The school refuses to do anything about this until we threaten to bring in the health department. Because if the health department were to come in the school would probably be shut down because of mold and the food. The same goes for the classroom buildings. There is one building on campus, Knight Hall, that was supposed to be condemned because of asbestos, but instead is in continuous use for art studious and COVID housing and even for some students normal resident housing. They just close the floors with the most asbestos.
The athletics department is ok. There needs to be better organization and communication. If you are also attending the college for a sport other than football you will receive little funding because the football program has at least 160 players with more still coming in for the fall. All the professors on campus are genuine and always available to their students. They are understanding and try to help you in any way they can. The staff and maintenance are just as friendly and helpful. These people are the reason I gave the school a rating of 2 instead of 1. The problems of the institution lie within the Faculty.
The school is very poor with handling its funding. If you would like you can view the school's 990 financial forms online since the school is considered a non-profit so these records are open to the public. But the school's financial issues came to light for me when in early June this year the school cut the Varsity Archery, Golf, and JV M and W soccer programs without warning. This hurt because I was part of one of the programs and with these programs, we all paid out of pocket for almost everything or our coach would. I also found out that the faculty and the AD knew these cuts were being made back around April and never told us. Instead, I found out in an email from my coach while other athletes found out through social media with the college refusing to make comments. Professors found out the same way. When they made the announcement it was pretty much too late to put in a transfer anywhere, but I along with others are trying. The school also said there are cuts to come but refuse to say what and when they will happen.
The college also cut multiple classes I needed for grad school and with my coach losing his job ( Don't worry he was contacted about another coaching job by a different university a couple of days after being cut :) ) that was another class I lost putting me behind in my degree.
Now going back to the food, just don't eat it. Most of the students get food poisoning from the food and I at least add it 10 times in the fall semester alone. I instantly got better during the spring semester as I ate less and less of the cafe food. Don't get me wrong the people there are wonderful, but the food will make you sick. The only time you will see a lot of students in the cafe is when there is a school/group tour or a preview day or basically anyone the college is trying to impress because that's when you can eat the food without getting sick. I would just save your money and go somewhere else before you get stuck in a position you regret just like me and many other students.
I LOVE Georgetown! It is small enough that everyone knows who I am. Yet the professors (usually Doctors) are very knowledgeable and work with anyone who needs help. I could not have chosen a better school for myself.
Georgetown College has been a great experience for me. It is a small college, which reminds me of the High School I came from. That in itself, has made the transition of leaving home to attend college much easier. It is an excellent College with great Professors and students.
It is too small, though the small class sizes are good. It feels like high school, everyone knows each other and are in everyone else's business. The professors are easy to find and they respond to emails mostly. Though most teachers do not post grades online so you might not know what you have in the class until the final grade report

I have just started my second semester as a freshman in college. Time has completely flown by and I have been amazed at how much life has changed and how much I have changed! When I was in high school, I assumed that college was just like summer camp, but with homework. I was completely and utterly wrong. College so far has been a massive process of adapting to real life. There is so much responsibility and so many struggles that I never saw coming. Everything about myself has been tested including my self-confidence, my time-management skills, and my social skills. College has its troubles, but it is also the best experience of my life so far! I have met so many new people and gotten to see different ways of thinking. I am free to make my own decisions. I am free to be who I want to be. But be prepared, incoming freshman-it's more of a responsibility than you would think! Have fun! :)
At Georgetown College, my classmates range from shy to outgoing as they do in all different communities, yet everyone always seems to reach out to one another, making sure that everyone feels welcome, and this can be especially seen within the classroom.
The dorms could be more up to par- I honestly don't think the one I live in has been renovated since it was built. I understand a lot of the money goes into the professors (which is good), but apparently there are some mold problems in the upperclassmen dorms- which could potentially lead to some health issues.
Anyone would be able to find a home here. There are plenty of students from all different backgrounds, with all sorts of uinque attitudes and opinions, and all of them manage to find some kind of place. Georgetown has a very friendly environment, and i have yet to meet a single student that has initially treated me in a disrespectful manner.
Someone who is looking to party instead of learn should not attend this school because they will not be successful in the classes.
Friendly and approachable
I think it is best known for is the different programs/departments it offers. Georgetown has a very good education department. Also we have Equine programs, First Tee program, and the Bishops Scholars, they all help bring in cultural diverse people, and I feel it is a good thing.
Small environment creates a safe space for all students. Professors and students are extremely friendly and welcoming.
When coming to Georgetown there wasn't anything in particular I feel that I didn't know. The moment that you think, "Hey maybe GC is the place for me." THe admissions team gets you well on your way. The school lets you know everything you need to know. You can do overnight stays with students and even attend classes to get the feel. Also before school actually starts there are workshops for incoming students and their parents, which will tell them all they need to know, and allows them to ask questions.
The size of GC is perfect if prospective students are looking for a real relationship with professors and small class size. If seeing the same people on campus everyday and being on a first name basis with others in your class isn't for you then GC isn't for you. The campus atmosphere is great for making new friends and being involved in new activities. GC offers many activities for students to get involved in but being the Baptist-affiliated school that it is, many of them are centered around christian themes. On this same subject, the school would be an ideal small college if it weren't for the 'christian school' thing. Students are required to go to chapel at least once per week and take at least 2 religion courses in their 4 years. The administration at Georgetown is very snotty and uppity, they place themselves on pedestals. Fake and not very nice to people they think of as 'below' them. Big Donors, on the other hand, are treated differently.
The best feature about Georgetown college, in my opinion is the size. Because it is a small school you get to know your professors and they are more of your friends than your teachers. The professors here will do everything in their power to help you if you are struggling with anything. You can go to them anytime and ask them questions without scheduling an appointment and it is completely okay.
For the most part yes. Students at Georgetown and the parents of prospective students think Georgetown is prestigious and a Georgetown degree is admired by all, including future employers. I think that many of these people confuse Georgetown College with the "real" prestigious Georgetown University in Washington D.C.
Academic Life at GC is great. The professors know all their students names, they make it easy to participate in class, most of them make their classes interesting, and classwork is challenging but not overwhelming. Most of my classes were in the Asher Science Center and the small class size in the physical sciences allows the students to be very close to the professors and very hands-on with the material.
Student Life staff are jerk offs. Drinking is not allowed under any circumstances and 3 write ups and you're OUTTA here. The Director of Student Life sends "spies" to hang out in all the different residence halls every night of the week except Sunday in order to observe and report those individuals breaking the code of conduct. The programs and guest speakers at the chapel every tuesday and thursday are very engaging and interesting. Lots of cool people come to Georgetown including Madeline Albright, George H.W. Bush, Brian Green (astro physicist), and Richard Dreyfuss.
The dorms are really run down and need a lot of maintenance. It has really made me not want to live on campus.
That the students at Georgetown are brainiacs, jocks, and christian scholars. Stereotypes exist that the school itself is a superior academic institution and a fine place to get a Liberal Arts degree.
