Incoming freshman Mike Turrentine chose Georgia College based on its class and enrollment size.
"It's the right size for me. Schools like the University of Georgia seem too big and won't be able to give me the personal care that I'm looking for as a college student," he said.
For his mother, Vita Turrentine, the choice was based more on the stellar requirements of the university.
"I liked that Georgia College's SAT score requirements for acceptance is one of the highest in the state," she said.
According to Crawley, the average acceptance SAT score last year was 1160. It was increased for prospective fall 2013 candidates to 1165. At age 16, Mike's younger sister, Katherine is also considering Georgia College.
"It's so nice here and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I'm definitely putting this school on the top of my list when I graduate," she said.
