    I matriculated to Savannah State University in August 2008. Since being here I feel it has been one of the right decisions I've made in my life. Not only did coming here get me away from home, but it opened my eyes to who I am more, introduced me to brand new possibilities and desires, and helped me to mature properly. There are those moments where I can not stand things that may go on here, but thinking on where I have come from, I realize that the things I consider minor annoyances are pushing me to be a better person. My understanding of the situation enables me to grow. It's the college by the sea. SSU I hold dear to thee.

    The campus is beautiful, but many of the lovely trees are being cut down, to my dismay. In addition to this, the workers at the campus tend to give you the run-around. I am unsure as to whether this is from lack of information on their part or the lack of wanting to deal with the students. Their attitudes change when they deal with our parents and I find this unacceptable, for the students here are adults and deserve to be treated as such. Lastly, the food here is centered around unhealthy fast-food diets which is counter-productive to active students and higher GPAs.

    I enjoy it at Savannah State, but sometimes I feel like it's a little slow. Coming here from the city where it seems like there's always something to do, it was a hard transition for me to get used to it down here. However, the people I have met have been pleasant, and I love the weather. Also, Downtown is great for shopping.
