Most people see this university as a party school. This is a very inaccurate observation. This is a good amount of alcohol and drug use, but it is no more than any other school in the US. If people look past this false accusation, then they would see that GSU is a very good school. The classes are small and the professors are very helpful to the students and most of them give out extra credit opportunities to help the students be successful in their class.

Georgia Southern University is famous for its friendly atmosphere on campus. It has all the resources that a student could find at a larger university, but it has a small college feel due to the attention professors give to each individual student. Even if a student is unable to reach a professor for help, the university offers many peer lead study groups all throughout the day, every weekday.

Georgia Southern is widely known as a school that involves its students and encourages them to explore opportunities to make the best of their college experience (while keeping their grade up, of course). Georgia Southern has really grown into something entirely different over the past couple of years. The past reputation of a "party school" has now turned into one of the best schools for nursing and business in the southeast. I am proud to say I am a GSU student.
