Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

I am taking 16 hours this semester. My professors are incredible. My favorite professor is a guy named Jeff Fallis - he is my Creative Writing teacher and he is just phenomenal. The class size for Creative Writing is about 18? But then I am taking other great classes like Rhetoric and Popular Culture and Statistics, which have over 200 people in them. I love the professors here - I see a true difference between UGA and KSU. The workload isn't so bad yet, but the semester just started, so we'll see!


Student at This School - Grad Year 2017

Academics Rating

All my professors have been great. There is a high workload, but definitely manageable. Class size varies. As you take introductory courses you'll probably have about 300 students in the class, but as you get more specific to your major the class size is about 20.
