With its 23:1 student-faculty ratio (and a student body of more than 4,900), Savannah State gives undergrads the kind of one-on-one experience with professors that only graduate students typically get at larger universities. The College of Science and Technology (COST) is home to plenty of sponsored research programs that pair undergraduates with professors to give them hands-on opportunities, including MAGEC-STEM, PRISM, and PS-LSAMP.
COST has earned grants from organizations like the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and NASA, which make it possible for SSU Tigers to analyze muscular chemicals, study gene manipulation, and track dolphin populations with faculty.
In Kurt’s case, being at a smaller university gave him access to professors who cared about who he was and what he was interested in. And it led to one of the best summers of his life. Seriously Impressive
