Savannah State is a great HBCU. There is so much to the small, historical college. From great academics, to great sports, there isn't anything savannah state does not offer. Ive only been at the school for half a semester and I can assure you I made the BEST decision. Great instructors, great atmosphere, great diversity of cultures, the athletics are top notch, and everything is so accessible due to the size of the school. Overall, I have no complaints, and I feel like SSU does a lot right.
I love it . They make me feel extremely safe , they take time to learn their students wants and needs , and know the dos and donts of campus . i oove the psychology course , and my psychology professor . savannah state is my home away from home . <3
Savannah State is definitely my home away form home. They cater to every students in their respective fields. It’s a must you attend to feel this vibe of not only academic excellence but student life as well! Faulty and Staff are very understandable and are always a phone call away. This is perfect for new college students who are leaving home. Parents should know that’s their children are in good hands!
My experience so far at SSU has it ups and down since being on campus. The campus food tend to get old very quickly the more you get there. The school is gated from the surrounding neighborhood. Greek life is main things on campus to keep everyone busy.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Savannah State University is 50%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The advice I would give myself is, to always remain focus. Since the reason I am here is to better my future and futher my education of higher learning. Also that networking is everything when you reach college. The more networking you do the better. By networking you open up many doors to your future and your mind. You gain many insights in life and in other people lives. Because you alone do not live in this world, you live in it with many others. So by net working you expand your mind in many ways possible that a book never can. And utimately i would tell myself, no one can push you to better yourself but you, and one person can change the world one step at a time. And that person is you!
No shuttle buses or availale rides to class.
Everyone on campus is very upbeat and humble. I can potentially learn and pick up some of the good habits, determination and motivation that each student, whether international or a minority, possesses.
My school wants everyone to succeed.
The best thing about Savannah State is that they make it lenient for students of any background because they believe that everyone deserves the right to receive higher education. For instance, I didn't do so well in high school. I thought that I would spend the rest of my days working 9-5 shifts at a job that I was unhappy with. But Savannah State took me in with open arms; its amazing to see how much the faculty and students care and look out for one another.
Anyone who is looking to be part of a diverse community and meet friendly students and faculty within the school and community. Also, if you love to be surrounded by a vibrant environment with its beautiful beaches, weather, and trees.
Prior to coming to Savannah State I never took a campus tour, so when I first arrived it was ALOT of walking , but over time I've gotten use to it.
The knowlegde that the financial aid counselors provide. I feel they don't inform the students of the full amount of aid that they qualify for. This not creates frustration but can persuade a student and thier family that they cannot afford schooling.
My school is best known for being an historically black university, in southern Georgia. It is also well known for its school spirit , especially around homecoming time. The whole town tends to particpates.
It is an HBCU and it has the Navy ROTC program. This school has the program that allows me to become a Naval Officer in four years.
If your not really outspoken, and or have some type of interests in being active whether it is with sports, academics, clubs, or orginizations. Then Savannah State University shouldnt be your first choice. It's very outgoing, lively, very oriented school. Never a dull moment, there is always somethig to do. Whether you have a liable source of transportation or not. Its very lively and brings new measures and obstacles to overcome.
When talking to my friends about my school I become excited. Its like majority of the students know what they have to do and kind of push one another to succeed. The environment is great its like being with family. Whenever I meet some high school seniors I tell them about my school and try to get them to look into coming to Savannah State University. Many students at Savannah State including myself can honestly say we love our HBCU.
I currently have an 3.9 at Savannah State. My major is Forensic Science. I take my studies seriously and many of my teachers saw this. So when I needed help they were more than willing to help me. I also enrolled myself in a over seas Chinese study program to advance my studies.
There are parties thrown throughout the week that are more heard of then on campus activities.
Like to party, irresponsible, lazy, "rachet" , and representation of thugs.
I wont say its completely accurate, maybe 85%.
