    Georgia Southern is a relatively cheap school, but it gives you a lot for your money. They have a fantastic research program for students to get involved with, great housing and dining, and a great academic program.

    I believe the tuition rates are extremely reasonable and the financial aid office are always available to help students in need. There is also a ton of fun things to do on campus that are free to students. It's definitely possible to gain a quality education, enjoy your time, and make connections at school while not spending a fortune.

    Most definitely ! Georgia Southern is a lot cheaper than a lot of other big colleges and you definitely get your money's worth. You get the classes,access to the gym, the housing,and an incredible opportunity for the money you're spending on it,but in the end its well worth it.

    This school is very cheap for what it offers. There are not many other universities that provide the amenities in the dorms that Southern does and the food is pretty good. Professors are extremely nice and want what is best for you, research is going on in every subject, and the overall attitude is positive. The university is always trying to better the campus for students.
