Some classes can be tough, but professors are always willing to work with you on anything.
David from Milledgeville, GA
some classes are easy. other classes are hard. many professors are nice enough to help students when needed. there are professors who take attendance as well as professors who do not. the professors who take attendance will allow 3 or 4 absences and grade reductions for each subsequent absence.
Jiya from Milledgeville, GA
For my core classes, which I expected to be easy classes to get out of the way before my major's classes, I was shocked at the work load. There is so much each week that has to be done and most of it is online, on your own. So if you don't remember that week to do something, your teacher won't feel bad for you. I can't repeat this enough: stay on top of your classwork!

The teachers have high expectations, but still at a reasonable level of success. The nursing program is difficult, but if a student succeeds, they are very intelligent in their field. The challenging classes have tutoring sessions available frequently through the week.

Classes are hard, but the professors are accommodating if something is going on in your personal life. I recently had a pretty trying time - my mother was diagnosed with cancer and my dad lost his job- and all of my professors helped and provided support for me as if I were a close friend. They still require you to put in the work, but they'll push back a few deadlines or provide an alternative if necessary.

Alot of freshman courses will require you to get off your behind and go become active on campus. Attending games, seminars, discussion forums, and various other school funded events. So for those of you who have a hard time in new social settings, the school will be your wing man while you're getting your feet wet. Some classes will have that as your final. Which is pretty fun compared to an actual test.

I feel challenged in my classes but not to the point where I feel overwhelmed.
Stephanie from Kingsland, GA
Almost all of the teachers are wonderful! Most teachers design the class to allow you to learn, instead of worry about the grades. I thought college was going to be just sit in a classroom and listen to the lectures, but GCSU has small class sizes so you can be comfortable having a conversation with your teacher and classmates.
