    great school for a student who knows exactly what field of study they want to pursue. classes are small so more one on one help from instructors.

    Campus Safety

    I used to take night classes and my boyfriend took me to class one night because we were going to a festival downtown afterwards. I was the only one out there along with three other guys. The teachers and staff pass you by, not asking if you need a phone to call someone or whatever. I was harrassed for about twenty minutes before my boyfriend finally got there. I will never take another night class.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life? No.

    Clubs and Activities

    Not much to do.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for kids who want to stay close to home.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Nothing unusual here.

    Bang for the buck

    I didn't pay for it at all. My high school did. So, bang for the buck. Free college!

    What to do for fun

    Nothing here is all that great, you can go to Cherokee Lake up the road though. Or you could go see a football game at the local high school.

    Food and Dining

    They have vending machines. That's as far as food and dining goes.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms, sorry. There are apartments though.

    Academic Rigor

    They're pretty basic. I've taken two courses here- sociology and psychology. Psychology was great. Sociology is okay, but they're easy classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure of who your teachers are, and know their emails. Make sure you have the right book (the edition) because they teach off of different editions. They look the same but can be slightly different. It makes all the difference in the world.

    In three sentences

    If you want to do it quick and need to work at your own pace, have at it. It's the school for you. Personally, I'm never coming back after this year.

    This school is a very upbeat state of the art school. It's local to several south Gergia Counties and helped me a lot.

    What to do for fun

    There are lots of on campus clubs. They are very active. They offer many functions to attend off campus.

    Food and Dining

    There is no food or dining. That is unless you count the vending machines. Which they aren't too bad.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms here. They may be a good add on though. Many students would appreciate them.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics here are not too hard. However, if you are really interested in the class you will gain more than you expect. The teachers push you.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is very easy to obtain financial aid. The Admissions staff is wonderful. The campus location is convenient.

    In three sentences

    I have really appreciated the small class sizes. The teachers almost always are willing to help outside of class. The best part of the campus is the staff.

    Make sure you turn all of your paperwork in months ahead of time. Call them and ask questions because they will not notify you if you have missing items.

    I would not attend this school if I knew what I know now before I enrolled. Classes are out of order as far as what you may need to take each semester. Financial aid office is HORRIBLE!
