One of our graduate students said it best: "The students make this an exciting place to be. On top of a great academic education, we get to study with and learn from people who come from every walk of life. And I can see beyond my own experience now; I've learned to see though theirs as well."
Governors State University has a diverse student body, which will allow you to experience an education that is in touch with the larger, diverse society you'll work in once you graduate. Statistically, the average age of a GSU student is 33. 71 percent of our students are women, 38 percent are minority, and over 2 percent are international students.
Beyond statistics, however, are the realities that bring our students through the doors. They are like you: motivated, intelligent adults who need a university that won't place limits on their potential. They work, they have families, and they have lives. They need a university that understands life outside of the classroom isn't optional.
