  • The dorms aren't the worst you can live in. Most colleges don't offer private rooms to Freshmen, but GSW does. Even though the bathrooms are still shared in private rooms,…

    The food on campus is actually pretty amazing! They are working on adding a few more restaurants such as Chickfila and Boars Head Deli in the fall!

    There are several places to eat on campus. Such as Canes Den which is a fast food dining service. Students love this restaurant the rest. Java City is just like Starbucks and also has smoothies and sandwiches. GSW have a convenient store. The cafeteria serves everything from fast food to home cooked food.

    I've only eaten in the cafeteria once, but I really enjoyed my experience. I've heard from my friends that there are good days and bad days, as like it is in all cafeterias.

    The food at the dining hall is usually pretty good. I can imagine it getting tiresome very quickly but that would happen with any dining hall food. There are special theme days every other week or so for variety. There is also a coffeeshop on campus.

    The food here isn't all that bad. The cafe is usually packed on Thursday's because it's fried chicken Thursday. They have their good days and their bad days.

    Since Americus is a small town, there are limited food places around. There are several fast-foods around in town that are not far from campus, just a few blocks away, and there is a cafeteria, dining cafe, a coffee house, and a mini-mart on campus so no one will starve.

    Here we have 6 female sororities and 5 male fraternities. Everyone that I know in the Greek Life are very nice and if you feel like you want to be apart of it, then they will guide you through the process with joy.

    Our Greeks are the best in the state! Brotherhood and sisterhood really mean something to our community. There is a place for everyone!

    There is a very present Greek life on this campus. Both nphc and phc. There also seems to be plenty of Greek unity, which is always good:)

    I am not part of Greek Life, but I do know that they are great at serving the community around GSW, such as less privileged children.

    There a few Greek organizations on campus, such as Zeta Tau Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta, but non-Greek organizations seem to be more involved.
