What Students Are Saying

3.62 Average Rating
Any students wishing to attend this university should be sure to keep an accurate record of all paperwork. While the school itself is wonderful, the offices sometimes become disorganized and people get lost in the shuffle.
Andrew from Florence, SC
If you are a prospective student you should be determined and serious about your education at SCSU and if you are then you will go far.
Aerial from Jonesboro, GA
It's vital that you stay focused on your goal which is to get out of school with degree in a major that will help you in the future. Its always a good idea to organize your time so that you get enough hours to sleep, eat, work, and HAVE FUN!!!! It won't be easy, but one thing you will learn in college is that you have to be diligent and TRY! Some teachers will help you as long as they see that you're doing this simple thing. REMEMBER: Distractions will always be there but if you let them takeover your life then you won't.
Keya from Lithonia, GA
Please do not listen to any of the negative information.Come see for yourself.
Mark
Do not procrastinate on anything.
Have fun, join a club/organization.
Always have spirit and Bulldog pride!
Jessica from Charlotte, NC
Network, network, network. Sometimes i's not what you know, but who you know, no matter where you are. You also will NEVER know who you could be talking to, so being professional and polite are very important.
Najee from Macon, GA
Just get to class on time and try to schedule your classes according to how you feel verses what you will have to choose from when everybody else has choose the classes they want. in other words, register for classes early or you will be upset at the times you will have to choose from if you register late.
William from SC
Do not play around freshmen year. Go to class everyday and do all assignments on time. Learn to prioritize; try your best not to procrastinate. Other people's advice about teacher's is not always accurate...get your own impression; you can always drop the class.
Jessica from Greenville, SC

Shaki from Orangburge, SC
