What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
Students should really sit down and plan out what classes they will take and when they will take them. The university is growing but it is still a small school, every class is not taught every semester and knowing when a class will be taught can only be beneficial to students. Get a mentor, the school offers free mentors to freshmen and they are upperclassman students who can help you when knowing where to buy cheaper books, what professors to take, and all the other tips and tricks only a fellow student would know.

I would recommend coming to Preview Day before making a decision. I went to Preview Day with my parents and I did enjoy it. You'll get to meet students and faculty, eat in the cafeteria, tour the campus and see what the dorms look like!
Victoria from Fortson, GA
Start off with a bang! Be determined! Don't procrastinate!! Manage your time wisely!!! You can do it!!!
Gloria from Ellaville, GA
The freshman 15 is REAL! :) Don't overdo it in the cafeteria, and if you do, there are plenty of ways to work it off. They have raquetball, a rock-climbing wall, and all kinds of intramural sports. I adore this school because it has the small feel that I like, with a great academic program.
Lilly from Fitzgerald, GA
don't take the core classes for granted. absorb as much info as you possibly can because whenever you start taking your major classes, you will use those skills and knowledge and build from there. it's okay to have fun and go out, but do it in moderation. college will prepare you for life, partying won't. go to class!!! it could save your grade. :)
Nichole from Americus, GA
If you plan to come here, don't be shy or closed up. Be friendly, join at least one organization whether it be non-Greek or Greek, don't try to go to all the parties first year of college (their will be more), please don't procrastinate on your studies such as work/studying your GPA will suffer and might lose HOPE, and don't be afraid to ask questions!
Azriel from Columbus, GA
get involved. because this is a small town some people complain that there is not uch to do but once you get comfortible and get out and find stuff there is SO much to do and you can get so much out of the community. for most majors there are internships right here in americus. the community is also extremely supportive.
Briana from Roswell, GA
Always meet with your professors. Do not be afraid to ask them anything, they are always happy to help you with whatever you need. There is also a first year advocate that will keep you on the right path.
