What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
Come your campus to get a feel for it. Figure out what’s best for you and don’t come here expecting to party all the time without studying
Ashley - Alpharetta, GA
Just try to have your future mapped out if you don't already the counselors are more than willing to help. I don't know about anyone else but my high school counselors were horrible. but at Ga. South. your personal counselor is there to help you
Ivory from Union City, GA
College is only as hard as you make it. No matter where you go. If you spend your time wisely, study when you need, set your priorities, and focus on your goals, then you will succeed. Your experience at GSU will be more fun if you get involved on campus. There are several clubs and student organizations, and intramurals are very popular. Most importantly, leave some time for yourself. If you spend all your time with your nose in a book, you won't fully experience college. Make sure that you spend as much time with your friends as you do studying and doing homework. Speak up in class, meet people, make friends, go out. These are the types of things that will help you develop the social skills needed to be successful in life. Definitely go to sporting events, particularly football and baseball because each game is a new experience in itself.
Drew from Register, GA
Just try to have your priorities straight when you get there. I'm not saying not to have fun, but just know there is a time and a place for everything. GSU does live up to its reputation of a party school, there is always something going on. You just have to know what you are there for.
Sasha from Lilburn, GA
Get your flu shot every year as soon as it comes out. It takes 10-12 days to be effective so don't procrastinate! This applies especially to people living in close quarters with a lot of students such as dorms. Keep well stocked on medicine for colds, sinus infections, and pain. My grades took a hard hit this semester because I got sick multiple times. Please learn from my mistakes.
Crystal from Brunswick, GA
Make sure you apply for housing on time so that you could stay in the dorms: there are some new dorms that were built recently and old ones have been renovated. If you somehow apply late for housing you might not get a chance to live on campus because a lot of students are deciding to attend GSU in the past couple of years.
Muhammed from Columbus, OH
Come visit campus and talk to students and see how everyone's experience here is different and anyone can find their place on campus.
Garrett from Lilburn, GA
prospective students should keep in contact with both their high school counselors as well as the admissions department at the university. communication is a crucial part of the admissions process at georgia southern. my suggestion: keep track of your eagle i.d. you should get it when you are accepted and it is your identification on campus.
Jessica from Suwanee, GA
Come to Georgia Southern knowing that you will have to buckle down on your academics. Despite what some say, Georgia Southern is not a school to be taken lightly. The social life is great, but without the grades it will not matter because you will have to leave. Prioritize and make sure you set aside time for both parts of your life.
Kelly from Powder Springs, GA
1. Be organized.
2. Figure out where things are on campus before hand, (especially all your classes).
3.Try the RAC every now and again because there are plenty of activities to relieve stress.
4. Study for tests through out the week so that you are prepared.
