Welcome from Dr. Cecil Staton

Welcome to Valdosta State University, the most beautiful college campus in Georgia!

Here, however, beauty is a lot more than skin-deep. For more than 100 years we have focused on creating individual success stories. This is a place where professors are mentors, competition is cheered, collaboration counts, experience is hands-on and connections are lifelong. For us, student success is the most beautiful thing about our campus. You can create your own success story at Valdosta State University.

VSU 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.

At VSU you will elevate your own expectations, ignite your passion for learning, transform yourself and gain a bigger view of the world. With access to our world-class faculty and one of the safest campuses in Georgia, you will find the sky is the limit for your success.

Come join us and create your own unique story at Valdosta State University. We can’t wait for you to become a part of the VSU experience!

Thank you for visiting!
