Take a tour, of course. Go to the bookstore and definitely eat on campus. Talk to some of the students and professors. Check out the library and see if it would be a good place for you to study. Look at a few different dorm rooms. Ask any questions you have, they are more than willing to help you find the answer.

    Georgia Southwestern is a has a small, but beautiful campus. At first glance, you might think the classes are easy, but most of them are very rigorous. Although Americus is a small town, there is something to do everyday on campus or in the community.

    Georgia Southwestern is a rather small school but has a lot to offer within. It is not very well known but is still worth attending to earn a simple degree. All in all, GSW is affordable, small, and a comfortable school to be around.

    I give GSW a 4.5 out of 5 because GSW is a small, comfy college where the student to teacher ratio is small which allows for 1 on 1 time with professors. It has a good education for the price you get it for with professors that respect you. The only downside is it's in a small town, but when you have friends it doesn't really matter as much because you can always find something to do.

    Good teachers and good academics, but very little else going on. Be sure you will fit in here, come to preview events. Make sure this is your place, because you'll be spending a lot of time here.
