5 College Freshman

Majors: It didn't require any extra work on my behalf. I simply chose my major.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love French. It's really easy to me, so I find the workload manageable. I am struggling with the ancient French a little but that's really all I can say about it.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not really qualified to review the Greek life because I have no idea what it's like. I assume it's nice otherwise I would've heard SOMETHING, right?

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The rec center is awesome! We've got top of the line gym equipment and eight basketball courts. There also yoga, cycling, kickboxing and other fitness and interest classes you can take.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If I'm ever coming from a party and I feel unsafe, I know tha the campus police are willing to escort me to my dorm or to wherever I'm staying that night. It's very comforting.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: We are extremely diverse and people from different religions affiliate with each other.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Traffic can be a pain, as can parking at times, but it's city living, what do you expect.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: This is an important topic on every college campus, and should continue to be viewed as such.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I don't have much experience with dorm life, so I'm not a good judge here.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Attending Georgia State is truly a unique college experience, with the University being in the heart of a huge city, amongst not just students and academia, but thriving businesses, corporations, and music and art scenes. Yes, the school has its shortfalls—its reputation academically isn't consistent, and it still struggles with the "back-up school" label—but because of GSU's size and status as one of the few research universities within the state of Georgia, it is constantly being affiliated with other top state schools like the University of Georgia and the Georgia Institute of Technology. The students that complain don't take advantage of the many opportunities that the school provides. Given the metropolitan area, students will most likely be able to find a job or internship applicable to any area of study. Because the campus is in the city, students who choose to go to GSU should be prepared for more than just a few classroom buildings on a green-lawned campus.

Students who get involved with student organizations get to know the University a lot better than those who don't take advantage of such opportunities. Plus, students sometimes get resume experience from their on-campus involvement. For example, if a writing major gets involved with something like the school newspaper, he or she gains on-site experience that could lead to an internship or at the very least be a good resume boost. Even more than that, student involvement on campus leads to interaction with many different people, which can lead to friendships. So it not only helps you professionally, but forces you to branch out socially to the 30,000-plus people that take classes at Georgia State. Long story short—yes, Georgia State prepares students for the future, but, as most college experiences go, it's up to the individual to determine how significant that preparation is.
