Am learning a lot
I have learned so much already in my 2 semesters at Macon State. The teachers are very helpful and obviously love what they do. I can not stop talking about how awesome this school is!
Am enjoying being here
This school is great for me because I am still living at home. It is close to anywhere you would need to go between classes. I am only a short drive away so I love being able to live so close without living on campus.
Bang for the buck
I would give this 10 stars if I could! The prices at Macon State couldn't be better! It was a no-brainer while I was researching schools. I can attend Macon State for a fraction of the price of nearby Mercer University. And the amazing thing is - you can't tell it's a cheap school! Your education doesn't suffer!
Tips for prospective students
Buy your books early, invest in a rolling backpack, arrive early to class, and don't be afraid to visit the teachers and ask questions! The teachers are very approachable and will always make themselves available to answer questions or schedule a meeting with you.
Great for these types of students
If you love being able to fit your classes around work then this is the school for you. I have two jobs so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to go to school AND work, but with the help of an awesome registration assistant I was able to do it. The campus is close to pretty much everything and with the new on-campus housing and affordable tuition you can't go wrong!

Am learning a lot
Professors are very helpful. If I am having trouble in a class, I can get a tutor or talk with my professor during their office hours. The professors want people to be successful and they want students to reach their goals.
Am enjoying being here
Everyone in Macon State are friendly and they give you tips on what classes you should take for your profession. I live in the Residence Life and it is wonderful. Other colleges have freshman sleeping in traditional dorms, but in Macon State you can live in a apartment. I have my own room and bathroom it is a great place to live in.
Bang for the buck
The tuition is great here. The financial aid can help you with any problems you may have. Emergency loans are given if you do not have the money right away.
Tips for prospective students
Attend every class; it is good to start at a small college than a university because at a small college you can get the one on one relationship with your professor. At a university, you are only a number. Students that are coming to college right after high school should start off small, then work your way to the top.
Great for these types of students
I think that Macon is great for people in a 2 year program. By the time you finish, you should be ready to go to a University.

This university is one of the most affordable, has a nurturing atmosphere, and the diverse student/faculty/staff body is like no other ... LITERALLY. There are many various degree fields/extracurricular activities/clubs/programs to attend and be apart of. You are guaranteed to find something that suits your interest here at the beautiful Middle Georgia State University!
Tips for prospective students
To do your research on any colleges you may attend, be prepared to be more accountable, and always stay on top of your coursework!
Academic Rigor
The academic rigor here is challenging. But don't let that scare you. If you're not made to analyze, think critically, and problem solve, how will you be ready for the workforce in your specific career field or any career field?
Dorm Life
I personally have never lived on campus due to me living so close to campus, but I've heard some pretty great things. The student housing is lively and spacious, so you're sure to find something you like!
Food and Dining
The food/dining is fantastic! From the cafe's to the cafeteria, there's always something different to choose from!
What to do for fun
There are many different events hosted by the Student Life Program to attend and there are various sports/clubs/student organizations to join as well!
Bang for the buck
Middle Georgia State University is literally one of the most affordable universities you will ever come across, which is one of the big reasons I came here. With the many degrees, sports, extracurricular activities, clubs, and student housing offered here, you are sure to get the biggest bang for the buck!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Two traditions we have are Purple Thursday and the Spring Formal. On Purple Thursday, everyone on campus wears purple as apart of school spirit (colors: purple, black, white, gray). The Spring Formal is held every spring semester during the month of February and there's a specific theme set for it each year. So whatever the theme is (for example: The Great Gatsby theme or Masquerade theme), you come dressed as that and dance the night away!
Great for these types of students
This campus is practically suited to just about anyone, no matter your interests or background, in my opinion. I truly enjoy this university and have come to know some phenomenal and diverse friends and peers here!
Clubs and Activities
The clubs and activities here are numerous. Too many for me to count!
Greek Life
We do have some Greek Life that just came about this Fall 2015 semester and is steadily growing!
Campus Safety
The campus safety here is fantastic. The police department does an amazing job of making you feel safe here and also have multiple safety measures and action plans in place if anything were to happen.

Will learn a lot
I only have two classes so far and planning on receiving my other two. But I have meet my future professors and I can tell already that they are going to be quite helpful to me. And have already told me that only the brightest students aren't afraid to ask for help.
Will enjoy being here
So far I have been accepted into Macon State and the faculty and staff have been over and beyond helpful to me, especially my admissions advisor. She is doing everything to make that I have a great year when I start school in the fall and I appreciate her dearly for that.
Bang for the buck
Macon State is no doubt the cheapest college in the state of Georgia. Financial Aid is very helpful as well. What I thought that I was going to end up paying is 3x as smaller as I'm about to pay for now. I'm so glad that I am going here.
Tips for prospective students
Don't be afraid to be a pest when it comes to classes and financial aid. The more they notice that you're serious about those things, the more they will tend to help you out. I have called many times about my application and now I call for my financial aid. You may think that they are getting tired of you but you have to remember.. This is what they get paid for helping us. So don't be afraid to be the one who is at class five minutes early and the one who stays after to get a better understanding of what was discussed in the session.
Great for these types of students
Macon State is the college for students who do not want a so big atmosphere. The class sizes are just like your everyday high school class. Great campus and friendly people. They welcome you with open arms and protect you as if you are their personal family. MSC is the place to be for any college beginner.

Am learning a lot
In my two years here, I have had the best professors. They keep class interesting and fun. I have learned valuable information that will stay with me forever.
Am enjoying being here
I love the atmosphere at Macon State. I grew up at a small school, so MSC is the perfect size for me. I've made great friends, and enjoy hanging out with them between classes. I live at home, so I enjoy that the school is close enough that I can live at home and save money!
Bang for the buck
Macon State is very affordable, and you feel like you're getting the good education you're paying for. It's not an easy school, and I like that I'm paying less but still getting challenged in my classes.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you get to class early to find a parking spot. Don't be afraid to go talk to professors during office hours, they'll give you wonderful advice! Try and get to know your professors one-on-one so that if you need recommendation letters or forms in the future, you can go back and ask them to write for you.
Great for these types of students
The school is great for working around work schedules. I have an afternoon job, so the morning classes are perfect for me. I also like not having classes on Fridays so that I have one day of the week to just chill. I usually use Fridays to catch up on housework I've neglected so I could do homework.

Macon state (now Middle Georgia State College) has rigorous biology courses with fantastic professors. The financial aid services are slow and hard to deal with. Beautiful campuses all over middle Georgia and it is growing into a university.
Tips for prospective students
Deal with your financial aid way ahead of time. If possible, make payments online to avoid going to the offices. Do not take the courses lightly. Macon State has very rigorous courses and I believe it should be recognized as being a difficult college. It is a reasonably priced college but it is difficult.
Academic Rigor
The biology program and the nursing program are very rigorous. As for other majors, I have not heard anything about them. I do know the courses I took in sociology, foreign language and psychology were absolutely no joke. STUDY!
Dorm Life
I lived in the dorms for one semester on the Macon campus. The only downfall was I had to sign in each and every guest. It felt more like a prison than a home. The dorms were nice though. Each person had their own room and own bathroom. The pool is fantastic and there are group events every so often for the students.
Food and Dining
The dining options are growing. A Subway was recently built on the Macon campus. The cafeteria has surprisingly delicious food and there are cafes around campus that serve hot food and Starbucks coffee.
What to do for fun
There are always activities being planned for the school. The Macon area also has many opportunities for shopping, movies, dinner and other activities.
Bang for the buck
You cannot beat the tuition! Fifteen hours for under two-thousand dollars. It is a very reasonably priced college.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Each year there is the Cherry Blossom Festival. Tunes and Balloons is hosted on Macon campus.
Great for these types of students
All. There is a great diversity at the school. It is mostly a commuter school. It offers online courses and is good for taking night courses while working.
Clubs and Activities
I am president of the Natural Science Network (a science based organization) and we are involved with many other clubs and activities on and off campus. There is a club for everyone!
Campus Safety
The campus is patrolled all the time and call boxes are throughout the campus, even the parking lots. It is very safe and I cannot recall a time I ever felt unsafe.

Previously named Macon State College, Middle Georgia State College offers a wide variety of expanding majors and minors. The campus is large, but not overwhelmingly large, and is accompanied by beautiful scenery. Middle Georgia State College is a considerably affordable school with a rising graduation rate.
Tips for prospective students
Students should come in with an open mind, always be on time, and keep up with assignments. I would recommend that students take advantage of all the on site resources of study, health, and recreation.
Academic Rigor
Classes and Professors will successfully challenge students and set high expectations for their students.
Dorm Life
The dorms are located close to the school. Offers many anemities, such as a pool, and recreation area. They are well protected by a night guard, and have many oppotunities to meet new friends and collegues.
Food and Dining
Middle Georgia State College offers one cafeteria, a Subway, and two onsite Starbucks coffee shops, which offers many affordable delicious meals and snacks. All of these restaurants accept financial aid, and a student can open up a meal plan, which they can use at all of these as well.

Middle Georgia State (Macon State) is a very organized and structured college. They have great financial aid plan for people who struggle to find the money for college. Middle Georgia State also has awesome professors who do all they can to help you succeed!
Tips for prospective students
1. Buy your books a no sooner than 5-7 days before school starts.
2. Be prepared! (2 sharpened pencils, 2 pens, notebooks, and bag)
3. Tackle one assignment at a time. The professors are very flexible when it comes to freshman and will help you as much as they can.
4. DON'T OVERWHELM YOURSELF. College will stress you out the first few weeks.
5. Learn time-management.
Academic Rigor
The academic challenges you face at Middle Georgia State are the basic challenges you face at any other college. Trying to stay focus and writing down every bit of information the professor says is very difficult. But I learned to relax my mind and focus more on the details of things.
Food and Dining
Food and dining is good at Middle Georgia States' Warner Robins campus! They have a place called the W.R.A.C.C. that sells snacks such as yogurt, chips, drinks, fruit cups, and some delicious sandwiches.
What to do for fun
Middle Georgia States' W.R.A.C.C. has all the fun! It's basically a game room where you could play Xbox, watch television, play pool and Ping-Pong, search the web, and just hang out with your friends! I visit the W.R.A.C.C. almost every day!
