            1981-1985, Med, English Ed

            When seeking my masters, Valdosta State presented a "can do" attitude. We will make your existing graduate credits fit within our curriculum. We will accept your credits. All you have to do is your part. With that A for attitude, I also earned mostly A's. It's also a very pretty place offering a great atmosphere. Carrol Wolverton

            1999-2001, MS, I/O Psychology

            Valdosta State Graduate Program provided me with opportunities to have real world application of the science I studied. The professors are there with you invested in your learning and career. Small classes were great, you feel as though you are part of a team instead of just another face in the crowd.

            1995-1999, Bachelor's Degree, Accounting

            The class sizes were small, and majority of my teachers were engaging and personal. I enjoyed my time there, and the business/accounting knowledge I acquired was the springboard that landed me a great job at graduation. I still live in the beautiful Valdosta area.
