Overall Rating

Fort Valley State is a historically black college located in Fort Valley Georgia. The school was a great learning experience for me because I attended the college right out of high school. I learned how to be independent. The atmosphere was lovely and the students were very friendly. The staff was great. The student life was also great because we had a party at the student center every Friday and the dorms were right smack in the middle of the campus. I recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a great education and a spectacular college atmosphere.
