Overall Rating

Savannah State University is a great school to attend. The most liked portion of this school is the size, the class settings, and the experience that i am receiving from the school. New students that come I recommend you set your priorities first which are 1. Academics, 2. Activity Involvement, and 3. Social life. Do not fall under peer pressure. Go to class everyday. Remain humble and always ask questions no matter how dumb they seem. Also pick your friends wisely.
