    Although the cost is pretty high per semester (especially when student fees and textbooks/supplies are added in), Georgia Southern University is fairly cheap compared to other nationwide universities. However, there is the potential to get way for for what one is spending, if they are smart. I can honestly say I have learned more as an undergraduate at Georgia Southern University than I ever have in public high schools. I have also made colleagues in professors and peers, learned future academic career skills, what I need to do to become a professor and researcher, earned future work and school references, honed my research and academic writing skills, and become more of a critical thinker. I have performed research and presented at conferences because Georgia Southern University has the resources to do so that may not be available at a community college. The classes are also fairly small (no more than 40 students in most upper-level classes). The only thing I would change is to waive student fees for students with a 3.50+ GPA as an incentive for students to study more and party less.

    As an Economics major, cost evaluation was very important to me, going in. I analyzed all possible options and their costs to choose what I found to be the most "bang for the buck." That being said, I didn't have to look too hard or too long. Yeah, dorms can get expensive, but the campus takes care of a lot of the cleaning and maintenance for you. The meal plan is a little much, but you can eat as many times a day that you want, unlimited. Tuition is the big number everyone gets a headache over, but I feel like for what I pay, the education and resources I am getting in return is a fair trade.

    it is a little costly if you ask me and i feel like the amount of money i am spending is a lot. i know it is cheaper than other schools but it is also very expensive for it being "one of the cheaper" schools in the area. i can go to georgia tech for the amount of money i am spending here, and they are a household name and known around the country for engineering which is my field of study.

    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.
