GSW has a beautiful, safe, and friendly campus. All of the staff are equipped with the knowledge and willingness to help you with whatever you need. There is a wide variety of courses and majors to chose from.
Chelsea from Shellman, GA
because the average class size is about 20-30 students, the professors can get to know the student on a personal and individual level to help you achieve your goals. it is a small town so you make friends quick too! also, no friday classes! :)
