The career prospects and the value of the degree depends on the major. In my major they constantly advertise business internships and scholarships. They really push going the extra mile in the college of business.

My Overall experience at Savannah State is interesting. I have only had one professor who was disrespectful and made it very difficult to pass his class. The classes are okay, the atmosphere of the classrooms are not something to get really excited about. It just seems like a high school with professors who know more information.
