Georgia College is an absolutely beautiful school, from the actual campus, to all the students that attend; I truly could not imagine my life anywhere else. When I was just a junior in high school, I visited this campus and immediately knew where I was going to be spending the "best years of my life", and so far it has been anything but a disappointment. My favorite part about this school is the students that attend it. I have been here for a little over six months, and have made friends who I know will one day be standing beside me on my wedding day. I walk to and from class giving and receiving smiles from complete strangers. College is a huge step in life, it's the first big step most kids make in their lives that really begins a life on their own, therefore I expected to be homesick, lonely, nervous, and scared when I first moved in, but this was not the case. This school had everything planned out for the freshman to feel as though they were welcome in their new home. The fraternities and sororities were throwing parties, the church groups were having cookouts, everyone was going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable in our new home. My tip for prospective students would be to take a visit here, I know you will fall in love with this beautiful and historic town just like I did. I cannot wait to see what the next few years here has in store for me!

All the professors were very nice and friendly. The kids I met were out-going and seemed like genuine people. The library was more than up to date and the campus was easy to get around. Just a welcoming environment.
