College size is nice meaning the campus and classroom size. All the students and teachers are amazing and make me feel welcome. Definitely 10/10 recommend if you are looking for a small homely college that shows nothing but love and make sure you are ok in any way.
During my time as a student, there hardly majors for conceptual/sequential art as drawing was the only degree that was closest to what I was looking for. Financially, I felt a little slighted as my grades from high school did not reward me me scholarships and was forced to take out loans to pay for tuition. However, the coursework to attain my degree excelled past the negatives as I was able to learn things about art that my high school never taught me. During the late years of my attendance, a digital painting professor came to the university and became a permanent class since my graduation in 2013. In addition, the art history minor was amazing. For two separate semesters, I was able to travel abroad to museum hop, explore the cities and marvel at great architecture. In 2011 I went to Germany and the Czech Republic and then Spain and France in 2014. Not even the Art Institute offered abroad classes like this. With these reasons, I do not regret attending Shawnee State University to obtain my B.F.A.
I actually transferred here from NKU for Video Game Design. SSU is a smaller school compared to many schools, but I wouldn't transfer anywhere else; I absolutely love it here. There are many opportunities to get involved from on-campus ministry to school-wide nerf wars. Many students are friendly and it's quite easy to make friends and feel welcome.
A nice university if you're looking for small sized classes and a personalized educational experience. The programs offered include a wide range of topics and professions, and the professors are generally invested in the success of their students (though, like with every school, there are exceptions to this).

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would start by congratulating myself on becoming the first high school graduate in my family. My parents married at a very young age of 15 and 17 since they were pregnant with me (I am the first of their three children). My father earned his General Equivalency Diploma (GED) in the military, while my mother earned her GED years later and went on to earn an Associate's Degree. Both my sister and brother took the GED test at the same time. However, he passed it, and she failed it by two points. Needless to say, becoming a high school graduate was an achievement for me.
The advice that I would give myself would be to continue improving myself through education by attending college immediately following high school, before marriage and children. Juggling the many ?hats? of adulthood is stressful, and although I enjoy being a full-time working mother who takes my college studies seriously, focusing all my attention on education first would have been easier and more beneficial in the long run. I would thank myself later for the advice.
My school is best known for having great housing! lol
My classmates are from all over the world, there are many from different countries, they all seem to be very friendly; Mostly, they are all from Cincinnatti and Cleveland.
Some one who is not willing to put forth the effort to complete their work and do their assignments should not attend. Every class that you attend will almost definitely have mounds of work for you to do on your OWN time. So if you can not manage your time, you also should not go.
Shawnee State University is small friendly and I feel very comfortable and that this is the best institution to further my education.
The best things is the students because i came to the school not knowing anyone but now i have lots of friends who i feel will be life long friends.
How long it was acturally going to take me to complete my degree and what courses i really need to take.
Shawnee State is a smaller school, which means smaller class sizes and more one-on-one learning time with your professors. Tuition is also much cheaper there than at many other colleges. Housing is set up apartment style as compared to other colleges that mainly have single-room dorms. Freshman who live on campus are also permited to have cars, which many other colleges don't allow.
The most frustrating thing about Shawnee State for me is that I grew up in a fairly large city by large universities and Shawnee feels too small. Classes are typically 20-30 students, with the largest class ever offered at 120 (a very rare exception). Most students prefer the small atmosphere, but I'd rather there be larger classes and more students.
I think that the worst thing about my school would have to be the amount of parking, there's never enough. They are working to correct the problem though.
The kind of person that should attend this school? Simple someone who can have fun and still get there work done, someone not easily distracted by a social life yet still capable of having one because everyone here is worth knowing. These people will be the ones to get the most out of this school simply because most of the people here are intelligent just lacking funds for better schooling and will be able to help with most problems one might encounter. Those that have problems separating both fun and work probably shouldn't atten this school.
I brag about my school being one of the only schools in the region to have a dedicated game simulation/design major and that we are rated one of the best for our health related majors
SGA and AHANA
Very small town so most of the fun you will have would have to come from you getting involved (Which I highly recommend) Good food. A lot of help with academics. Very nice college.
Country small town kids, No this stereotype is not accurate a lot of our students come from various places and have so much to offer.
