    If you love being able to fit your classes around work then this is the school for you. I have two jobs so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to go to school AND work, but with the help of an awesome registration assistant I was able to do it. The campus is close to pretty much everything and with the new on-campus housing and affordable tuition you can't go wrong!

    Tips for prospective students

    Buy your books early, invest in a rolling backpack, arrive early to class, and don't be afraid to visit the teachers and ask questions! The teachers are very approachable and will always make themselves available to answer questions or schedule a meeting with you.

    Bang for the buck

    I would give this 10 stars if I could! The prices at Macon State couldn't be better! It was a no-brainer while I was researching schools. I can attend Macon State for a fraction of the price of nearby Mercer University. And the amazing thing is - you can't tell it's a cheap school! Your education doesn't suffer!

    Am enjoying being here

    This school is great for me because I am still living at home. It is close to anywhere you would need to go between classes. I am only a short drive away so I love being able to live so close without living on campus.

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned so much already in my 2 semesters at Macon State. The teachers are very helpful and obviously love what they do. I can not stop talking about how awesome this school is!

    I think that Macon is great for people in a 2 year program. By the time you finish, you should be ready to go to a University.

    Tips for prospective students

    Attend every class; it is good to start at a small college than a university because at a small college you can get the one on one relationship with your professor. At a university, you are only a number. Students that are coming to college right after high school should start off small, then work your way to the top.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is great here. The financial aid can help you with any problems you may have. Emergency loans are given if you do not have the money right away.

    Am enjoying being here

    Everyone in Macon State are friendly and they give you tips on what classes you should take for your profession. I live in the Residence Life and it is wonderful. Other colleges have freshman sleeping in traditional dorms, but in Macon State you can live in a apartment. I have my own room and bathroom it is a great place to live in.

    Am learning a lot

    Professors are very helpful. If I am having trouble in a class, I can get a tutor or talk with my professor during their office hours. The professors want people to be successful and they want students to reach their goals.

    The school is great for working around work schedules. I have an afternoon job, so the morning classes are perfect for me. I also like not having classes on Fridays so that I have one day of the week to just chill. I usually use Fridays to catch up on housework I've neglected so I could do homework.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you get to class early to find a parking spot. Don't be afraid to go talk to professors during office hours, they'll give you wonderful advice! Try and get to know your professors one-on-one so that if you need recommendation letters or forms in the future, you can go back and ask them to write for you.

    Bang for the buck

    Macon State is very affordable, and you feel like you're getting the good education you're paying for. It's not an easy school, and I like that I'm paying less but still getting challenged in my classes.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love the atmosphere at Macon State. I grew up at a small school, so MSC is the perfect size for me. I've made great friends, and enjoy hanging out with them between classes. I live at home, so I enjoy that the school is close enough that I can live at home and save money!

    Am learning a lot

    In my two years here, I have had the best professors. They keep class interesting and fun. I have learned valuable information that will stay with me forever.

    Macon State is the college for students who do not want a so big atmosphere. The class sizes are just like your everyday high school class. Great campus and friendly people. They welcome you with open arms and protect you as if you are their personal family. MSC is the place to be for any college beginner.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to be a pest when it comes to classes and financial aid. The more they notice that you're serious about those things, the more they will tend to help you out. I have called many times about my application and now I call for my financial aid. You may think that they are getting tired of you but you have to remember.. This is what they get paid for helping us. So don't be afraid to be the one who is at class five minutes early and the one who stays after to get a better understanding of what was discussed in the session.

    Bang for the buck

    Macon State is no doubt the cheapest college in the state of Georgia. Financial Aid is very helpful as well. What I thought that I was going to end up paying is 3x as smaller as I'm about to pay for now. I'm so glad that I am going here.

    Will enjoy being here

    So far I have been accepted into Macon State and the faculty and staff have been over and beyond helpful to me, especially my admissions advisor. She is doing everything to make that I have a great year when I start school in the fall and I appreciate her dearly for that.

    Will learn a lot

    I only have two classes so far and planning on receiving my other two. But I have meet my future professors and I can tell already that they are going to be quite helpful to me. And have already told me that only the brightest students aren't afraid to ask for help.

    So far, so good! I have met so many people in the few weeks since school started this semester. The teachers seem interested in getting to know everyones name. It is easy to get around and find my classes.

    Am learning a lot

    I have only been at Macon State for a few weeks so far, but the classes have been great. This is the third college I have transferred to, and I think it is the last. Middle Georgia was too small and there was nothing to do outside of school. Valdosta State was a nice campus, but there were too many people, and the teachers did not know my name.

    Campus Safety

    the campus police protect the college but are known for being rude. they are not oppressive in the least, but their parking system could be more merciful. nevertheless the campus is safe and secure despite being located near to a bad part of town.

    Greek Life

    none.

    Clubs and Activities

    plenty if you know where to look.

    Great for these types of students

    associates degree seeking students who wish to transfer out to complete higher learning.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    no unusual traditions or locations.

    Bang for the buck

    an excellent bang for you buck for your associates degree only. i have the displeasure of finishing my third year here before transferring out for my fourth and final year. students who attend here longer than two years feel like they are on a treadmill for sorts. after the two year classes the college loses quality and you feel like you are being farmed for your money. the associates programs are very good, just transfer out after that. the college has fallen on hard times. shortly before investing in a new, enormous, glass-sided building, buying the apartment complex across the street for use as dorms, doubling the size of the artificial lake and expanding the parking lot, the dean/president resigned, tuition was hiked and the college was hit with a $5 million budget cut. people who have been here for a while can feel as if the college is spread too thin, and overall the college really has gone downhill.

    What to do for fun

    the college is located on a street called eisenhower parkway. about a mile away there is the presidential shopping center and that is about it. presidential has multiple grocery stores, retail stores and the like but not much for fun. ten miles up i-475 is zebulon road (exit 9), where there is more to do if you know where to look. ten miles east is the city's main shopping center, riverside drive. you can do just about anything here, but is a 20 minute drive from the college. downtown macon is equally far away. overall a very fun city.

    Food and Dining

    food is okay. they serve sushi, burgers and all the typical food. there is a cafeteria with ample dining space. prices range from two dollars for a small item to eight or nine dollars for a full meal, so it is not hard on your wallet. the staff are also very nice, but are slow to start up in the morning. overall very well.

    Dorm Life

    dorms are okay. there is an ra in every complex. each of the complexes has three levels with four apartments on each level, each apartment has four small bedrooms with private bathrooms in each one and a public common area for its four residents. the apartments are low-mid quality, but the privacy you get by having your own room makes up for it. it is also quiet and overall was a nice place to live.

    Academic Rigor

    extremely easy to get in to, and widely renown throughout the state as being one of the hardest colleges to remain in. the professors are very low quality and care little for their students. the work is hard, ambiguous, and teaches little for those not attending for a medical degree. i would only recommend attending for a 2-year degree and then transferring out.

    Tips for prospective students

    great for you associates degree, but the current administration has turned it into a college you will not want to attend for very long. the college has fallen far, so i recommend you get in, get your associates and leave as soon as you can.

    In three sentences

    a great college in the past, but has since fallen on hard times. following some bad decisions on budget allocation the college has since fallen far. most of the teachers are foreign and the vast majority of the students have extensive complaints about it.

    Am learning a lot

    Macon State is a college that provides a high quality education at an affordable price. It seems to me that oftentimes those who come to Macon State from other institutions are quite shocked at what is expected of them at Macon State. Some people seem to believe that MSC will provide them an easy ride and become unhappy when they learn how tough the college is and what a great education people get at Macon State at a fraction of the cost of going to other private institutions in the area. This is definitely not the case. MSC is a college for serious students who are seriously interested in getting a serious education.

    Smart enough to wait to go to the big colleges until knocking out the smaller stuff, not prepared to go to a bigger college, interested in a 2 year degree to get you started, local students who plan on saving money by living at home for a few semesters.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try your best to make friends early on. If it doesn't work, then stick through it. Once you are past your core classes, you will have smaller class sizes and it is much easier to connect with people who are pursuing similar degrees to yours. Apply for this college no matter what in order to get scholarship opportunities that could end up paying you to go to college. If you plan on going to larger schools, finish all of your core classes here and then pay the big bucks later when you go to that well thought of school.

    Bang for the buck

    If you get the hope scholarship along with any other sort of scholarship or grant, then you pretty much get paid to go to school here. The sad part is that this school runs into a lot of problems with people enrolling in classes for this reason and then dropping them after they get their financial aid money.

    Did enjoy being here

    It is really hard to make friends at this school since most students commute. Most will show up and leave and you won't hear a peep out of them until you get into your major areas. Some advisors don't seem to care enough to try and help you while others cater to your immediate needs. Luckily, it is your choice who actually ends up advising you.

    Did learn a lot

    In my Engineering specific courses I learned a lot and had great teachers that were equivalent to those that I had at Mercer. In most core classes however, I was very bored and felt like I was wasting my time. In some cases, I felt like I could have taught all of the material in the class, but testing did not make much sense. Once you are past core classes, everything goes a lot better.

    Campus Safety

    our campus security is unlike any other security i have ever seen. we have actual campus police on site that are always visible and on patrol. i have taken very late night classes in which the campus was pretty much empty and i have never felt worried about my safety. the campus police are extremely polite, friendly, and helpful

    Greek Life

    unknown, i have never researched this for our school, but i am positive more information can be found on their website under student organizations.

    Clubs and Activities

    as stated for things to do for fun, they have a variety of sports offered: softball, baseball, basketball, soccer, cheerleading, tennis, flag football, rugby, etc. they are currently only club teams but they do travel to other schools and host games locally. they also have random social events like ice cream socials, cookouts, movies, contest, etc nearly every week. there is also tons of student organizations you can become involved in.

    Great for these types of students

    Bang for the buck

    after researching other options, i have found that msc is the most affordable school in town for the level of degree and reputability the school offers.

    What to do for fun

    oh wow, alot. this year especially they have really begun to offer a large variety of options to keep students active on campus in and out of classes. they offer a free wellness membership with an active id. my favorite offer is the free classes that they offer at the gym. they will be building a new facility soon that will be amazingggg !! they have a variety of sports offered: softball, baseball, basketball, soccer, cheerleading, tennis, flag football, rugby, etc. they are currently only club teams but they do travel to other schools and host games locally. they also have random social events like ice cream socials, cookouts, movies, contest, trips, etc nearly every week. there is also tons of student organizations you can become involved in.

    Food and Dining

    the cafeteria food they offer is excellent. they are clean, fast paced, and reasonably priced making it an excellent choice for me while i am on campus and do not have time to go elsewhere for a meal or snack. we also have several coffee shops that offer starbucks products and snacks. they even have sushi which is my favorite since it is a great price for the amount. you can also bring your own water bottle or snack to pair with this to make it even cheaper. i love our food options on campus. they even offer meal plans regardless of whether you live on or off campus which allows you to have an even more discounted price. my only wish is that we could have a chickfila on campus. wouldn't that just be wonderful, haha.

    Dorm Life

    i have not lived in our dorms since i am a local resident. they have just started to begin offering this option since they purchased a local apartment complex.if i were not already living here, i would definitely consider this option. the area is right across the street from the college which would be super convenient for those worried about transportation. on the outside it appears to be clean and well maintained. our school also offers help with affording the living costs and they offer meal plans in our cafeteria which has excellent food and affordable prices. i have friends that have chosen to live here even though they are local just to be able to get out of there parents home to have some independency and enjoy a full college experience without being to far away from home. seems to be a great offer from the college.

    Academic Rigor

    the courses offered are very broad. there is so many different classes and professors to choose from in each class or subject which makes it easy to work around a schedule if you have one. the difficulty depends on the professor and the personal amount of work you put in as i'm sure it does at all colleges. so far i have been able to maintain an a/b average and completion in each class while working full time. however, i did spend a lot of my free time outside of work studying. regardless, the courses offered and the professors are extensive and there is tons of help on campus for every subject to make sure you achieve.

    Tips for prospective students

    i think the most important advice i could offer is to get in with an advisor even if you think you're on track and register early and maintain an open relationship with them while enrolled !!! the advisors at msc are excellent and have really helped me out. i spent my first year and half avoiding them because i did not want to be told how and when to schedule, haha, biggest mistake i made. once i got on track with them, my college experience has been far better and mush less stressful and i am now positive i am on track and working towards my degree at the best rate possible.

    In three sentences

    excellent college that offers broad range and amount of degrees. they have an excellent campus that is easily accessible and beautiful. most importantly, it is a quality education that is affordable !!

    Whether you are a gamer or a business major, MSC has a club for everything! Most of them meet on a monthly basis and do a lot of activities. I've already met some awesome people in the Phi Beta Lambda Business club!

    Great for these types of students

    Macon State is great for anyone! Just because you have interests that differ from other's, don't feel discouraged! You will fit in just fine! Go look at the MSC website and check out all the active clubs we have here!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Since I'm still just a freshman, I'm not very familiar with the traditions that Macon State has. In the Spring of 2013, Macon State will be called Middle Georgia State College. Hopefully we will have a real football team and much more! Pep Rallies will be a blast! Go Knights!

    Macon State College provides the full college experience for a portion of the cost. It's definitely a win-win!

    Food and Dining

    Not only is the food that Macon State provides very good, but also a new Subway and Starbucks were just opened on campus this fall! Being a College student, coffee starts to become your best friend and Subway helps prevent the freshman 15 from creeping up on you too!

    Dorm Life

    Since Macon State is so close to my house I do not live in the dorms, but I did take a tour of them and they are extremely nice! Some of my friends live in them and they love it. Public events are held often where everyone is allowed to participate. They even make moving in fun!

    Academic Rigor

    College in general is difficult no doubt, and Macon State's professors are well aware of that. Don't be discouraged because classes get tough. Both the Warner Robins campus and the Macon campus provide free tutoring sessions in just about every subject whenever you need it. It's almost harder to fail!

    Tips for prospective students

    Since Macon State is close to home, many students are considered to be PCP students. PCP stands for Parking lot-Class- Parking lot; this means students will show up for their class and then leave. They don't try to get involved in all the awesome events Macon State has going on! My tip for you is DO NOT be a PCP student! Get involved and take advantage of all MSC has to offer! I promise you will not regret it! Also Macon State's class schedules are pretty flexible. So if you are like me and juggle college, work, and a social life it's great to be able to fit everything in!

This way you can get the good used books before they sell out! This will save you A TON of money!

    The Warner Robins campus has vending machines throughout and a recreation room that sells food. However, most of the food is not terribly healthy, and it is also over-priced. The Macon campus has a Subway, which is alright.

    Dorm Life

    Macon State dorms are clean, safe, and well-priced. They are great for young adults who are moving out on their own for the first time.

    Academic Rigor

    Students need to have a basic understanding of what they learned in High School in order to do well in classes. The classes are not too difficult as long as the students put forth a reasonable amount of time and effort. Students also must pay attention in class to grasp the concepts effectively.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students should be on good terms with their Macon State professors, and put forth an honest effort in their classes. Professors will not help students who do not appear to care, and certainly will not want to help students who do not respect them. Be good to them, they are the ones putting down the grades.

    Safety at this school is ALWAYS on point. They have campus police patrolling the place at all times. There is never a time where I feel alone or abandoned if something where to happen.

    Clubs and Activities

    Macon State offers an on campus gym which is very important so you can avoid the freshman 15.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are a student that really likes the one on one environment in a classroom then Macon State is definitely for you.

    Bang for the buck

    Macon State is definitely affordable and well worth every penny. It isn't a fast paced school with thousands of students running around and rushing, it is very calming in fact.

    What to do for fun

    Normally hanging around campus is such a relaxing and enjoyable feeling. Between classes I will hang out around the library or even take walks down to the pond and stroll around until my next class.

    Food and Dining

    There are dozens of choices in dining to pick from around campus if you are not interested in anything the school offers. MSC cafeteria food is outstanding and they even offer a Subway and Starbucks on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus, however, I have friends that stay on campus and love it. The campus itself is beautiful and dorms are located right across the pond.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are small and makes for an easy learning experience. You become familiar and close with classmates and that really helps in group study events.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would definitely recommend checking out the study abroad program! You will not regret it. Taking college credit classes while out of the country is a lifetime opportunity.

    In three sentences

    Macon State is a very down to earth and relaxed school. I highly recommend it, because the professors really take the time and work with you. The class sizes are intimate and makes learning a lot easier.

    Macon State College is very easy to get used to. The campus is small enough to find your way around, and the new buildings are very nice. Macon State College also offers distance learning, which is nice.

    It's not the best, but it's not the worst. I've had awesome professors who have made teacher fun and a couple who were late to every single class. Overall, not a bad school for the price.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many clubs and activities you can join from Student Government and Kendo Club. If you can't find an activity or club that suits your fancy then you make one up. All you have to do is have enough students and a teacher that supports your activity and you're set.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Macon State is awesome. They have two Starbucks, a Subway, and a cafeteria. The cafeteria has meat and vegetarian options and a wide variety of snacks that are cheap. Starbucks is a ;little on the pricey side but they sell sandwiches, salads, wraps, and Asian food bowls that can satisfy your hunger on a tight budget.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm rooms are set up as apartments where yu you have your own room and bathroom and share a living space. The price to live in dorms is only 2,000 a semester and that includes: internet access, cable, phone, and electricity. Your only responsibilities are to stay in school and pay your rent every month.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors expect a lot from their students, you're not in high school anymore so you can't expect them to baby you. They are compassionate and understanding but to a certain level. They are going to challenge your mind and not spoon feed you information. Going to Macon State will not trade a quality education for a low tuition.

    Tips for prospective students

    When applying for Middle Georgia State apply early, the earlier you apply the more likely the classes and teachers you want will be open. There is nothing in the world mores disappointing than not getting a class you need or wanted. Also use the resources at your disposal , there are academic resource centers that are usually open all day long that hoping that you will come by.

    In three sentences

    Middle Georgia State College is a great school to go to for students that don't want to trade quality for high tuition cost. This school provides you with endless resources to help you with your work and projects. Also there is so many random and fun things happening around campus you don't have to read the newsletter to see what s going on.

    What to do for fun

    For fun, I sometimes hang out with my roomates.

    Food and Dining

    The school offers a cafeteria, Subway, and Starbucks. I have been very pleased with the food and the service I recieved.

    Dorm Life

    I have lived on compass during my first two years of college and I am not 100% pleased with my experience. The apartments are nice but the people are less than sociable.

    Academic Rigor

    Although Macon State College is a smaller school, it is by far one of the toughest academically. The work can become extremely overwhelming however, the school offers many academic resources for additional help outside of class.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would encourage all prospective students to take college seriously and enjoy the experience. Of course there will be tough and stressful times but it is important to stay focused and attend all classes.

    In three sentences

    Macon State College is a nice school for students who learn better in a smaller class setting. Most of the teachers I have experienced are great educators and are more than willing to offer their assistance in any way they can possibly help. The campus itself is also beautiful and clean.

    Macon State and Middle Ga College just merged. I really like the water features and campuses in Macon and in Cochran.

    Food and Dining

    Cochran campus food was decent but this was back in 2002 when I was there. I cant speak for now. As far as the Warner Robins campus, I have used the cafe in the bookstore and I love their coffee. There is now the new cafe/lounge there too which is really nice.

    Dorm Life

    I cant speak for Macon campus dorms but I did live in the Cochran campus dorms for 2 years back in 2002. Since then they have really upgraded and expanded.

    Academic Rigor

    Just like any school, some teachers/professors are easier than others. Ive really enjoyed most of mine so far.

    In three sentences

    My college has been undergoing consolidation with Middle Georgia College to become Middle Georgia State College for the past year, and for all that the adviser's and teachers have been going through, they have really held it together and presented themselves very well. While in class, the teachers are extremely helpful and pretty understanding that some students have other challenges besides school (kids, grandparents passing, etc). I really enjoy attending MGSC.

    Campus Safety

    I would rate the campus safety here at Macon State a five star. We have an on campus safety building where students, parents, or faculty can go in case of an emergency. Also, if students feel unsafe walking back and forward from dormitory to classes, a police officer will escort you to your destination. Moreover, at the housing facility, before anyone can enter into where the apartments and things are, their is a security booth that one will have to go through first, before they let the gates open for anyone to proceed through. This isn't a cheesy security booth, they have good guidelines that must be followed.

    Greek Life

    Sadly, I must say that we do not have greek life here at Macon State.

    Clubs and Activities

    Since I am only a Freshman here at Macon State, I am not really involved in many of the clubs are activities offered at the college. However, I am a part of the Honors program. It give students with exceptional learning abilities the ability to take classes that will best suit them in the future. Macon State also offer many other club and activites such as the CAB club, drama club, music, math, etc. There are several things that one can take part in here at Macon State College to occupy their time.

    What to do for fun

    For fun, I love to go to the gym and workout. We all know the saying freshman fifteen. I think that here at Macon State, this saying will more than likely come true with such great food from the Student Life cafe. So going to the gym, working out or being part of the Zumba class is fun to do. Also, the pool area is fun. They always have pool parties and volley ball games that take place out at the pool area and if one isn't really interested in either of these options, there is always the mall to go to. It is about two miles up the road from Macon State campus.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Macon State is mouth watering. I eat from the cafe almost everyday. There hasn't been any thing that I've tried yet that I wasn't satisfied with. Macon State have a Subway, two Starbucks, and several cafe dining food areas to choose from. You wouldn't have to worry about being hungry, unless you are a picky eater, other than that, I personally think students will enjoy the food here at Macon State.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life here at Macon State is also intriguing. There's always bundle of events that are going on. The rooms are apartment like suites, with your own room and personal bathroom. You have to share a kitchen and living room area with your other three roommates, but most roommates are easy to get along with. Also, you get to meet new people and build your socialization skills with others. Moreover, the dorm is within walking distance from the school. It will take no longer than five minutes to get to the school, but it all depends on the pace you are walking; some are able to get to the the school campus in less than five minutes.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor here at Macon State college is awesome. The teachers are willing to help their students, and very thoughtful that students learn. There are some classes that are challenging, but there will always be at least one challenging course at any university or college one may attend.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips I would give prospective student is to be sure that they are positive that the college they choose to attend is where they want to be, and that they also consider family in their decisions in making their choice of school. It is very important that one goes off to college to better themselves and receive a chance at pursing their dream. One should also be very cautious of the things they do while attending this particular college, but one little mistake could lead to a situation that one may have a hard time getting out of. I would advise future students to make sure they have a positive mindset about college, and that they aren't involved in the wrong surroundings or group of friends.

    In three sentences

    Macon State College is located in a great area in Macon, Ga, with a lovely environment surrounding their students. There are several opportunities offered here at Macon State, including higher education learning, better communication skills, and living outside from home. Also here at Macon State, offers on campus living, which is absolutely fun and challenging.

    Middle Georgia States' W.R.A.C.C. has all the fun! It's basically a game room where you could play Xbox, watch television, play pool and Ping-Pong, search the web, and just hang out with your friends! I visit the W.R.A.C.C. almost every day!

    Food and Dining

    Food and dining is good at Middle Georgia States' Warner Robins campus! They have a place called the W.R.A.C.C. that sells snacks such as yogurt, chips, drinks, fruit cups, and some delicious sandwiches.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic challenges you face at Middle Georgia State are the basic challenges you face at any other college. Trying to stay focus and writing down every bit of information the professor says is very difficult. But I learned to relax my mind and focus more on the details of things.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Buy your books a no sooner than 5-7 days before school starts. 2. Be prepared! (2 sharpened pencils, 2 pens, notebooks, and bag) 3. Tackle one assignment at a time. The professors are very flexible when it comes to freshman and will help you as much as they can. 4. DON'T OVERWHELM YOURSELF. College will stress you out the first few weeks. 5. Learn time-management.

    Middle Georgia State (Macon State) is a very organized and structured college. They have great financial aid plan for people who struggle to find the money for college. Middle Georgia State also has awesome professors who do all they can to help you succeed!

    Bang for the buck

    This is a great place if you want the best bang for your buck. The tuition here is incredibly cheap, even out of state, and the academics here are very good if you look for the best professors.

    Food and Dining

    It depends on what day you eat and where you eat. I usually eat at Subway which is pretty good, and of course the Starbucks is good. Just beware prepackaged food, which I have found to be pretty disgusting.

    Dorm Life

    Although I don't personally live in a dorm, I have heard from my friends that apartment/dorm life doesn't offer much: it's not well kept and there isn't a lot to do. It's mostly a place to live.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes here are pretty tough. Although you could find an easy professor if you wanted to, all of the professors I have encountered will make you work. Despite the school's reputation for being easy to get into and to get through, the classes are actually pretty tough. You have to be willing to put in an effort and actually learn the material. However, the classes are really great and most of the professors are great and very helpful.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be willing to come to class and study for your classes. Although Macon State has the reputation for being a community college that doesn't require a lot of work, that isn't true at all. I have found that in all of my classes I have to come to class and be prepared to talk about assigned readings. If you work hard and make an effort, you'll do well.

    In three sentences

    Overall, Macon State College is a rigorous school. There aren't a lot of clubs or campus activities, but if you are willing to meet people in class, you can find people to hang out with. Overall, I really enjoy the classes and atmosphere of the school.

    I am president of the Natural Science Network (a science based organization) and we are involved with many other clubs and activities on and off campus. There is a club for everyone!

    Great for these types of students

    All. There is a great diversity at the school. It is mostly a commuter school. It offers online courses and is good for taking night courses while working.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Each year there is the Cherry Blossom Festival. Tunes and Balloons is hosted on Macon campus.

    Bang for the buck

    You cannot beat the tuition! Fifteen hours for under two-thousand dollars. It is a very reasonably priced college.

    What to do for fun

    There are always activities being planned for the school. The Macon area also has many opportunities for shopping, movies, dinner and other activities.

    Food and Dining

    The dining options are growing. A Subway was recently built on the Macon campus. The cafeteria has surprisingly delicious food and there are cafes around campus that serve hot food and Starbucks coffee.

    Dorm Life

    I lived in the dorms for one semester on the Macon campus. The only downfall was I had to sign in each and every guest. It felt more like a prison than a home. The dorms were nice though. Each person had their own room and own bathroom. The pool is fantastic and there are group events every so often for the students.

    Academic Rigor

    The biology program and the nursing program are very rigorous. As for other majors, I have not heard anything about them. I do know the courses I took in sociology, foreign language and psychology were absolutely no joke. STUDY!

    Tips for prospective students

    Deal with your financial aid way ahead of time. If possible, make payments online to avoid going to the offices. Do not take the courses lightly. Macon State has very rigorous courses and I believe it should be recognized as being a difficult college. It is a reasonably priced college but it is difficult.

    In three sentences

    Macon state (now Middle Georgia State College) has rigorous biology courses with fantastic professors. The financial aid services are slow and hard to deal with. Beautiful campuses all over middle Georgia and it is growing into a university.

    Campus Safety

    The campus police are always driving around or walking the hallways. As far as I know, there has not been any crime reported at the Warner Robins Campus.

    What to do for fun

    The college always has something going on like getting tickets to go to the theater, free movie nights in the Student Lounge, Ping Pong tournaments, etc.

    Food and Dining

    I go to the Warner Robins Campus of Macon State (now Middle Georgia State College), so there is a Subway two minutes away and a DQ a little down the street. Also, there are other restaurants like Korean and Mexican, but I have not ate there. They do sell food and drinks in the Student Life Center, but I can't say anything about the quality because I have not tried it out.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes and professors are more challenging than others. It all depends on your learning strengths and weaknesses. Studying is a must in all classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you do not feel comfortable asking questions in class, definitely e-mail your professor. They get back with you in a timely manner and answer your question the best way they know how. Also, utilize the Academic Resource Center because you pay for 350 pages of printer paper a semester, so don't use up your own.

    In three sentences

    It's a great college to go to because all the professors are nice and try to help you out in any way that they can. The average number of students I have had in my classes has been about 25. The teachers know you by name and the student workers help you out without making you feel judged.
