What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valdosta State University is a university with diversity, though it is made up of mostly African Americans and Caucasians. Despite that, they still think about minorities. As a Hispanic whose mother’s job is to clean houses and whose father’s job is to work as a motorist in a dairy farm, there were challenges in terms of financial aid. The university has a program known as College Assistant Migrant Program (CAMP) which was an immense, take a load off one's chest experience I thank God for giving me. It pays for full-year tuition for the first year as well as housing, meal plans, books, and extra supplies while helping us to search for our future goals, future financial aid, etc. Those who exceed the requirements to gain the full benefits from the program get to finish the first year with a fully paid study abroad trip to the Czech Republic. Besides the opportunities, this school has a lot of potential. There are still issues this university faces which I have noticed as being a senator in the Student Government Association. Students and as well as myself have complained about the on-campus meals due to its lack of diversity in taste. Palms Dining center mostly serves burgers, pizza, and fried chicken which can leave a lot to desire since it is mostly the same meals. Based on the multiple amounts of resolutions and legislation sent by the Student Government which provides promising actions of advancement, the university is slowly changing to meet the needs of students. Another thing to mention about the university is that it is vast in degrees and provides professors who have a passion for the courses they are teaching. I had courses at Wiregrass Technical College for Dual Enrollment and the professors were more laid back, less strict, and less intimidating, which to me gave me a chance to “wing it” and still do well in the class. There was no challenge. Valdosta State University was a greater improvement from this previous college in that I have to actually learn to continue in this university. In my search for colleges to start my career as an art major, it was very challenging to find an art college I could afford. Many community colleges only provide STEM-related courses. I say this to say that the University addresses issues that other colleges do not and allows chances for artists to thrive. In short, Valdosta State University is a very recommended college for those who need an affordable, enhanced-quality start as a freshman and/or sophomore with benefits for all kinds of students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valdosta State is a very interesting place to be during college. Let's start with the classroom. The Mass Media program is an extremely hands on program. Most people assume that Media is an easy subject to study, but that is not true at all in Valdosta. You will certainly have an opportunity to get your hands dirty. During my undergraduate years I got the opportunity to make music videos, short films, create films, participate in film festivals, create newscast, and a lot more. I got to learn about writing, filming, editing, audio, and new media all in one place. There is certainly no shortage of experience available in this curriculum. Outside of class there are other extracurricular activities available to add to your resume. There are definitely organizations and events that focus on journalism, news writing, photography, film, and television. Outside of building you resume the campus is truly beautiful. It is one of the best features about the entire university. Every student becomes acquainted with the front lawn. It is a truly beautiful. Looking back on my time at VSU I don't have many negatives to focus on becaus there is something for everyone. I met some of my favorite people in Valdosta and wouldn't change a thing.
