About Valdosta State University
Valdosta State University offers the extensive academic, cultural and social opportunities of a major university, and the small classes and close personal attention found at smaller institutions. Students are attracted to the close-knit community where learning occurs in a supportive environment. Faculty and staff members challenge each student’s potential. The Valdosta State philosophy embraces the concept that the measurement of a student’s success in college goes beyond the classroom and offers a wide array of opportunities to become involved including more than 200 active student organizations, Greek fraternities and sororities, faith-based ministry groups, a variety of intramural teams, and many service and academic clubs.
SU is a home away from home, where lifelong connections are made, and you will never feel invisible. Here you will write it, sing it, broadcast it, run with it, cheer for it, celebrate it, teach it, nurture and own it. There are over 100 majors to explore, championship athletics, highly regarded graduate programs and we are just far enough away from home.
At VSU we are hands on from day one. Research, internships, study abroad, small class sizes, winning plays, faculty access, lending a hand, and even playing in the sand come naturally. VSU makes the university experience relevant and real for students—opening the door to opportunities in the workplace and in life.
