I have experienced one year of Georgia College and State University and I am delighted to be entering my sophomore year. After facing some indecision in my freshman year, I wanted to change my major after experiencing a few core classes that I wanted to explore further, which led me to major in both Sociology and Spanish. The resources that the college offered were amazing and acted quickly, including a wonderful counselor that helped me through my indecision. Ultimately, I am very excited to continue my education at GCSU and cannot wait for another great year.
So as someone who just recently had to choose a college, Georgia College is the one and only that really stuck out to me. Choosing the college you want to attend is a really big choice. There are lots of aspects that play into your choice. When I went and toured Georgia College I knew it was the one for me. The students who gave the tour were so down to earth and truthful about how they felt about the university. I got to tour all the different classes and facilities and really got a feel for the area. I can't wait to spend my next 4 years at Georgia College. Go Bobcats!
Georgia College is a great choice for higher education! The small class sizes allow for personal connection with professors who want to see students succeed. There are plenty of ways to get involved around campus, and organizations welcome students with open arms.
High School was a terror for me. This place has helped to build my self esteem in what I can do with my intelligence, and challenged me to think on a more broad, diverse spectrum due to our unique Public Liberal Arts Education. This place is my home, and if they had a Grad program in my area of interest I would love to stay!

I would tell myself to prepare for college by studying more and not procrastinating.
Classmates are friendly and hardworking.
Someone who wants individual attention to be challenged and succeed, access to supports like tutoring and career counseling, and an atmosphere that puts the person ahead of research or salary.
GCSU is very welcoming of anyone who sets foot on the campus, whether he is a visitor or student.
The worst thing about my school is they need to open more classes for their students. There are so many classes in which students don't get to take because they end up filling up even before they get to register. This then can cause major problems later down the road.
We are all very proud of our school and have so much school spirit. We also are very involved on campus, and there is a very enjoyable environment on campus. The people are so nice and welcoming.
It's very light and open and free. It's friendly and one of the best-known colleges in the United States. I would say we maintain a great reputation.
You shouldn't attend this school if you don't like living in a small town, in a place where things can get pretty boring. Also I wouldn't go unless you're really interested in learning about lots of different things, despite your major the school will make you learn about a mulititude of things through events and activities. Also there isn't a whole lot of racial diversity which bothers a lot of people.
my school is best know for the Governor's Mansiom.
The teachers do no know anything about todays work environment. The people taht work in the offices are rude and not hepful. This is why Georgia's education is horrible.
The more involved you are, the more fun you'll have
Small class size, professors who care about individual students' performance, small-town atmosphere that emphasizes community
There isn't exactly a stereotype here, but the students can be described as more toned down than UGA students
I would say the best thing about this school is the small class size. Most classes range from about 30 students to about 60 students, and I currently have a class with 11 students. The smaller class sizes allow a better relationship with other students in your class and the professors as well. We also have a beautiful campus. The groundskeepers do a great job keeping up the beauty and elegance that our campus has to offer. One thing that I wish we had would be more on campus restaurants, but Chick-fil-A and Einstein's bagels usually get the job done. Milledgeville is definitely a college town; it would be a ghost town without GC and GMC. When people hear that I go to Georgia College, they usually bring up the mental institutions. We had the largest set of mental institutions in the country (now most of them are closed down which means it's even creepier driving around that area), and that coupled with the historic district make for a rich, interesting history.
We have a lot of very good class choices here at Georgia College. Right now I'm in a Buddhism class, and coupled with my advanced learning of psychology course, I'm making connections to the world that I never thought possible. I'm a psychology major and I love it. I love the professors in the psychology department; they are kind and they will help you with anything you're struggling with. Because of the small class size, participation is required in a great deal of my classes (there is usually an attendance policy) and the professors usually know my name. I think there is a good balance at this school of learning for knowledge's sake and learning what you need to know to obtain a job. If you pick a major that requires electives, that is a great opportunity to take classes that will further your general knowledge of the world and society. I would have to say that nursing is one of our most competitive and prestigious majors. We have a really good nursing program that will guarantee you a job after school, but it is extremely competitive. Studying frequently to keep your GPA high is very important. Overall, I think we have a good selection of majors and classes that will help you get your degree and get a job while furthering your general knowledge and areas of personal interests at the same time.

You can always either go to the professors office or contact them through e-mail and they will be more than happy to answer all of your questions! They actually care about their students and care if the students are in class or not. Most of the professors do take roll and have some type of attendance policy because they do want you to be successful in the classroom. Since this school is not too big you have that one on one relationship with the teacher and most of them will know you by name so that you are more comfortable talking to them and asking them questions.
I made my decision to go to this school because of the education program that they have here. It is one of the best in the state. You apply to get into a two year program called a cohort and it that two years you are spending most of the time out in the field in the classroom so it prepares you so well to where when you do start teaching and have your own classroom it is like you are a three year teacher. I also made my decision on the size of the school, not too big and not too small.
