    I love being at Southern Poly. The campus is very condensed, meaning you are not walking far to any of your classes. The staff at SPSU is friendly and welcoming and the professors of Southern Poly are there to not only help you with your studies, but also to help you with life as well.

    The campus is very nice and located in a beautiful city. It is only 15 minutes from Atlanta which is very nice for those that like to go out into the city. There aren't many disturbances here, just the occasional fire alarm, but that isn't even that bad.

    I really enjoy being here. It is a great school and it has been growing a lot. They have improved in many things. They always try to have events to have the students come out and have some fun and meet new people around the campus.
