Valdosta - It's been a year filled with success for Valdosta State University, since Dr. Ronald Zaccari took the college's reigns.

"We've made progress in a new housing plan, with the environmental club, and with the overall morale of the college," said Zaccari.

Pressing issues like the living wage campaign and a new joint stadium agreement with the Valdosta School System have seemed dormant for the past five years, but are showing great progress under Dr. Zaccari's leadership.

"The stadium issue looks really promising and I think that in the near future, both VSU and the Valdosta School System are going to have a beautiful, brand new stadium," said Zaccari.

VSU students seem very impressed with Dr. Zaccari's presidency, especially his open door policy and daily interaction with students.

"He really cares about the students opinion and is a very friendly and approachable person," said Stephanie Pickens.

Proving that Zaccari is a personable and respectable leader, building a brighter future for VSU and the entire university system of Georgia.
