Am learning a lot
College is totally different than high school. You not only learn about academics but you also learn life lessons.
Am enjoying being here
The atmosphere at THE Fort Valley State University is very homey. You would adapt almost immediately to the campus, the peers, and school staff.
Bang for the buck
More than half of the student body recieves financial aid. Fort Valley offers Presidential scholarships also.
Tips for prospective students
The first year may seem hectic at first, but as the semester goes on it tends to go by fast. Make sure you handle ALL financial aid work as SOON as POSSIBLE! And if your not used to your cafeteria food, Fort Valley IS the place to be. Unlike other school food, Fort Valley's cafe food is extremely delicious; and if you don't like the cafe, there are numerous amounts of fast food stores located on campus, such as Papa Johns and Jazzman's Cafe.
Great for these types of students
I believe this school is best for all kinds of students. If your not used to being around alot of people, this school has plenty of campus bonding activities, such as homecoming. And this school will teach you to be independent and a sense of culture diversity. You meet all kinds of people from different places everyday.

You also will learn how to mold yourself as a person.

Will learn a lot
I'm going to school for veterinary science and all of their veterinary and animal programs are amazing.
Will enjoy being here
I've been visiting the campus since I was born. I have many family members that are alumni at the school and they enjoyed it and I'm positive that I will to.
Tips for prospective students
Don't get so caught up with partying tat you forget about school and let your grades slip. The college professors will fail you.

Fvsu is a great university. Very diverse and a nice atmosphere. Has great programs with great professors.
Tips for prospective students
Get advised by an advisor on time. Be on time for everything and most important keep up ur grades.
Academic Rigor
Small amount of students which means more one on one with professor!
Dorm Life
Great dorms, just difficult rules. They should treat us more like adults instead of minors.
Food and Dining
Great foods, just small cafe. Expand for more students to be able to sit and eat.

There are a lot of things to do for fun. You can hang out in the old & new student centers. Also you can play pool, air hockey or ping pong in the commons clubhouse.
Bang for the buck
I think this school is worth the money because there are lots of activities you can take part in.

I'll let the students find out on teir own.

We have alotttttttt of different clubs. So many I ca t name the all. But my favorite club is SGA (student government association).

Campus safety is tip top.! We have a lot of officers who are skilled at protecting our university.
