There are jobs and internship opportunities on and off campus to help prepare students. The recreational activities center offered "Train to be a Trainer" with organized study groups for personal training certification. There were grad students and professors with open office hours.

Kinesiology, Class of 2003

I did not live in the dorms or have a meal plan. I had friends in the dorms and they were nice enough. I believe there are some updated dorms that are nicer. The food on campus was average. I lost weight and worked out while in college. I didn't gain the "freshman fifteen." The great thing about Statesboro is the apartments are so cheap it is almost as cheap to live off campus.

Rated January 2016
Alumni
Human Nutrition and Food Science, Class of 2003

There were computer labs in all the dorms and in the library. 3 dining halls. Mostly smaller classrooms, but a few auditorium sized. Gym; football; baseball; swimming; basketball; art museum; botanical garden; tick museum; theaters; 2 school book stores.
