I love Valdosta State University; it feels like my second home literally. The fact that it is only one hour away from my family, I don't mind leaving and visiting my family every other weekend. The days go by so fast at Valdosta which makes college life even better. I went on a campus visit last year to Valdosta and I automatically knew that Valdosta was the place for me. The campus isn't all that big and that is what I love about it the most, because I am introverted most of the time.
Like every college VSU has its pros and cons but overall, there are - 1) great academics (If you are willing and able to work hard, you will succeed.) 2) The campus is unique and beautiful. (Any misuse or mess is from student use.) 3) Proffessors are always ready to help if you are genuine. The campus can be messy sometimes, food is average and dorms are tiny with mold complaints and slow maintenance. These are not large issues but they are something TO BE CONSIDERED WHEN APPLYING.
I love it and would invite others to attend. The campus life is great and there are always things to do. The football and basketball games are very engaging. The staff and student body are friendly and very helpful. There are great facilities for self-studies and if you need tutoring it is easy to find help.
Valdosta State is good school. Housing could be updated as it’s a little old. There’s no much to do in the city but the school is decent. I wish there were more things to around the school. Wit that being said VSU offers several clubs and organizations for a student to join. The biggest event that really helps is The Happening!
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Valdosta State University is 65%. 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 _____.
When its time to choose the school of your choice, make sure you follow your instincts. Do plenty of research ahead of time to be ahead of the curve. Also, never be afraid to give a friendly smile and friendly words. If you maintain a positive attitude when applying for admissions, meeting new people, and applying for jobs then you will NEVER meet a stranger! Its all about positioning yourself for success and being positive.
Valdosta State is best known for our school spirit. We are very proud to be Blazers.
The worst thing is how dead campus is during the weekends. it feels like the school is encouraging people to go home on weekends. I also would chaneg the cafeteria schedules. After 6 o'clock in the evening there usually is not a great majority of food left.
Valdosta State University is an American public school and is one of the two regional school in the system of Georgia.
Me personally, I like the diversity. My reason is because it is somewhat hard to find a school that accepts someone who is a mixed race as well as being friendly. Of course, you can't ecsape racism but the diversity there lets you mingle with plenty of different people both race and personalities which I love most about the university.
If you plan on attending VSU you should be ready to learn, have fun and enjoy school. The teachers are very helpful and understanding. If you feel a little embarassed and don't want to go to your teacher for help, you can always go to the Student Success Center, and they have a lot of very smart students who can help you out. You should also be ready for different types of weather.
The only difference I could say is that it's not a HBCU and it's quiet.
I wish I had known that Valdosta State was so attentive to their students before come to the campus, and I would have been better able to achieve my goals being a single mother of two.
The advisors are the most frustrating thing.
Every person can find a niche at this school. It is made foll all races, all likings and everyone can find something they enjoy about VSU.
The faculty at Valdosta State University are the best part of VSU. The faculty push you to your best, and they are very involved in helping you decide your plans for the future. I plan to be in contact with my professors for a very long time because they have fostered a great deal of knowledge and intellectualism in me. The people are friendly, the classes aren't too big, and by no means is anyone at this university considered a number. That is why i recommend VSU to prospective students.
