"I chose to attend GSW because I grew up down here visiting my grandma. As soon as I set foot on campus it gave me that same feeling of home from when I would visit her, and I knew this was where I needed to go."

"It was close to home and affordable. My brother also went to school here so, it made sense that I transfer to GSW to finish my education."

"There were many reasons I wanted to attend GSW but one of the deciding factors was definitely the out-of-state tuition waiver for international students. International students usually pay three times the amount in-state students pay, but GSW's waiver program has helped me and my family tremendously when it came to paying for college. I encourage all incoming international students to look into this program provided by GSW."

Nursing
"I chose GSW because as soon as I stepped on campus, I was welcomed like I already belonged here. I felt like it would be a great place to go because of all the possibilities of involvement that were introduced to me on Scholars' Day. I also heard that the nursing program was wonderful and one of the best in Georgia. I'm really enjoying it now that I am in it."

"[The College of Education's Friday-only] program allowed me to have the flexibility of being able to continue working and attend classes only on Fridays. This program was a dream opportunity that allowed me to further my education and build a career that I loved."

Human Resource Management, MBA Program
"GSW provided me with an opportunity to further my studies in my career field while participating in collegiate athletics. I visited the campus in October of 2017 and loved the small-town environment and personal relationships between teachers. GSW also supports in-state tuition from neighboring states which made my decision that much easier."
