Tanyé, a senior chemistry major, has taken advantage of the


extensive academic, cultural and social opportunities available at VSU. More than 100 degree options, as well as a variety of internship and study abroad experiences, facilitate a broad range of enriching academic pursuits, with the added benefits of a 21:1 student/faculty ratio.


Outside the academic setting, more than 170 campus organ- izations foster leadership, social interaction, recreation and spiri- tual development. Mosley found her place at VSU as a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, one of nine African-American Greek organizations on campus. Her “family away from home” enjoys socializing on campus or downtown or working out at the Student Recreation Center, which boasts a two-story rock climb- ing wall, indoor swimming pool and cutting-edge weight room.


Following her dream to become a


pharmacist, Tanyé Mosley enrolled in Valdosta State University’s pre-pharma- cy program because it offered under- graduate research and scholarship opportunities similar to large institutions, with the close, personal faculty attention found at smaller universities. She discovered the best of both worlds at VSU, a regional university of more than 12,000 students who hail from 46 states and over 65 countries – 32 percent of whom consider themselves minori- ties. Located equidistant from Atlanta and Orlando, the VSU campus offers a warm and friendly atmosphere housed in beau- tiful Spanish mission architecture set amid pines and palms. Valdosta itself was named ESPN’s “TitleTown USA” in 2008, a tradition which continued when 10 of 11 VSU NCAA sports teams competed in postseason playoffs last year.


Tanyé is typical of many students who live on campus in suite-style residence halls designed to facilitate living/learning communities which unite students with similar interests and aspi- rations. She eagerly awaits the January 2010 opening of the unparalleled three-story VSU Student Union, which will instantly become the new hub of student activity on campus, offering game, lounge and meeting rooms, as well as student stores, food court, ballroom and a 350-seat movie theater. As she looks forward to graduation and pharmacy school,


Tanyé credits VSU for lifelong friendships, leadership experi- ence and the academic success which have shaped her into the person she is today — a confident and enlightened individual ready to make her mark on the world. 2009-2010 Tuition before fees: $1,598 in-state, $6,389 out- of-state, per semester.
