Valdosta State University offers the best of both worlds — 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 and faculty members challenge each student’s potential. Outside the academic setting, campus organizations encourage leadership, social interaction, recreation, cultural and religious development and community service. The College of the Arts offers a wide variety of performances and exhibits throughout the year, while championship Blazer athletics and a vibrant social scene round out a true college experience.
