Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Georgia College is the place you go if you truly care about your education. The teachers challenge you academically, your class sizes are small, and you never are going to have one of those classes where you don't have to try and still get an A. That being said, when you do receive an A, you truly know that you've earned it.
Georgia College is one of the top universities in the state. There is a strong drive for academic achievement, and assistance in all classes is offered all the time. There are always fun activities being offered to keep the weekends busy and entertaining.
Brittney from Suwanee, GA
Georgia College is a magical kind of place. Most of the students (including me) complain about it pretty regularly. Despite all of our whining, there really isn't anywhere we'd rather be.
A'Leyah from Jonesboro, GA
It's a perfect happy medium between the itty bitty- ness of Young Harris and the colossal UGA.
There is always something going on and all of it is something enriching.
The teachers are really what makes GCSU stand out; you can ask any one: these guys are phenomenal!!!
