Georgia Southern University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


Honestly, I wish I woud've known the that independence was such an important factor at Georgia Southern. I had to schedule when and what part of campus to eat at everyday while moving in between classes which may sound simple but is rather difficult. I remember of one day I forgot to eat until about midnight and realized, HEY, I didn't eat all today. With that said I would say manage your time and classes to where you can eat and study properly in order to get a balanced college experience.


I wish that I knew that biology is not a good major for me. I almost failed the class and this tanked my GPA and I almost lost my Hope Scholarship. I wish i would have accepted the fact that math is more of my thing.


Dietetic Internships cost money and are extremely competitive. Students must pay the internship site once they are accepted. Internships accept applications from all 50 states but only choose between 2-10 total students out of the thousands of applications.


I'm not really sure. Living is an learning experience. Maybe I will make sure that was more social and participated in more events.


The only thing I was not aware of when I began school was the number of cotton fields that surround the school. Other than that there are no schocking factors, or crippling surprises that await you. This community depends on the school so everyone works very well together.


I wish I would've known that most of my work would be done online. Coming to college, I didn't have a laptop, so it was very stressful to do my homework on the computer all the time.


I wish i had known that most of the students here go home on the weekends before i had come here. I live far away and cannot go home every weekend like everyone else does. It is very lonely here on the weekends.


I pretty much knew what I was getting into when I applied and decided to go here. I had teachers and friends that had previously been to the school or knew others that were in the school.


I wish I had looked into the college soccer program more because I had heard stereotypes that discouraged me from trying out. I was told that the coach was horrible and only wanted big, fast players. After attending some of the soccer games I found this not to be true. They are a respectable team and one that I wished that I could be a part of.
