What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
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!!!
Stephanie from Kingsland, GA
The campus here is beautiful. The professors are so easy to get along with. Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming.
David from Milledgeville, GA
gcsu is a wonderful college. there are many majors and majors to choose. there are also many clubs, organizations, sororities, and fraternities to join.
Jiya from Milledgeville, GA
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.
Lorin
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.
