What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
Valdosta State University has a beautiful campus, teachers that can relate to their students most of the time, and is very committed to their sports. As far as attending to their students, VSU is pretty good about getting back the residents, hearing the opinion of the students and acting on it, and encouraging them to do their best. A few down sides to VSU is that the wifi is a bit spotty, there is almost always sometime of construction whether it is minor or major, and parking for residences could stand to be improved.
Mackenzie from Valdosta, GA
Valdosta State University has a diverse campus with many things to do around campus. It has great and helpful teachers. It's not too big or too small of a campus.
