Of all the Colleges in Illinois – GSU Offers the Most
Our Student Services provide the essential building blocks for a successful education, and one of the first things we do is to assign students to an academic advisor to help keep their academic careers on track. Advisors partner with students on everything from making the right class selections to recommendations for tutoring and study groups. Additionally all in-coming freshmen attend an in-depth orientation to ensure a smooth transition.
The diversity of our learning community, both students and instructors, is another aspect of GSU that makes us stand out. And, even though we are an affordable university, all of our programs have either earned or are in the process of earning the appropriate professional accreditation, wherever that type of accreditation exists.
By offering classes in a variety of times, locations, and formats, GSU students can pursue their educational goals in a way that works with their busy schedules. We are an easy commute adjacent to I-57and a Metra station and near I-80 in Chicago’s Southland, with one of our larger satellite locations, the Naperville Education Center, located in Naperville, IL.
