Georgia Southern University Top Questions

What kind of person should attend this school?

Nicholas

I think it is extremely hard to narrow a student to a particular "kind of person". While at GSU, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet students from all over the world. There is an international presence at the university that brings wonderful diversity and pride to the campus. If I had to list a kind of person, I would say one that is committed to school, and not there to "party". Too often students had to leave due to poor grades, and not taking their education seriously.

Brad

You’re going to want to be polite, and have a lot to put on that application: do some stuff with clubs, student government, intramurals/other sports activities, possibly go greek, and of course have good grades!

Davis

Some one who is willing to meet new people and learn. Also someone who want to have fun in the process.

Walter

This school is great for students that love sports and/or working out (generally, any athletic activity), the Greek system, and who have a lot of money to spend going to the club/bar to kill time. Also, if you can afford to purchase a parking pass, then you have more money than most of the students here.

Samantha

A person who enjoys being in a southern enviorment, where people are very hospitable and treat one another well. Not to mention the fact that Georgia Southern is a party school, so if a student likes to party they will enjoy it here.

This school is for students who are good with diversity and enjoy a good southern atmosphere.
