I think its good that she's retiring. I wasn't impressed with her tenure as president. I hope and pray the new president can breathe some new life into this school and turn the enrollment decline around

But enrollment declines have had a ripple effect on the budget and affected morale among stakeholders.

“I think it’s a good thing for the university,” Rick White, an SSU alumnus active in the alumni association in Atlanta, said about Dozier’s decision to step down. “It couldn’t come any sooner.”

“I wasn’t too much up on what she had done at the university with regard to positivity,” White said, noting that declines in enrollment and student retention are difficult to reverse. “The lifeblood of the university she just about drained,” he added.

I really wanted to attend Savannah State but the campus isn’t in good shape and there just aren’t enough students for it to be a real community. It’s crazy because I love the city and going to SSU gets you a free transit pass which I thought was nice but I just couldn’t justify the cost for so little when schools like Georgia Southern and Valdosta State exist. I feel like Armstrong should’ve merged with SSU instead of Southern, it would’ve brought more students into the school and Armstrong wouldn’t feel like a satellite campus with no culture (they moved all sports to GSU which is a shame).
