2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have robberies all the time. In fact, there were 4 robberies at the library and they people were never caught.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is everything from small 20 people classes to large lecture classes. Several of the lecture classes offer breakout sessions to elaborate on the material given in lecture. Some of the teachers disregard what is in the students best interest, but there are several outlets and study options on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's as can be expected for campus housing. The rooms are quite tight though.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know much about the greek life. You usually only notice them when they perform at parties or plaza.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I went to a couple football games, but they weren't that exciting, and the further into the semester the less time for sports.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is in the heart of Atlanta, so that comes with its own experience. Aside from that, college has been fun. I was never the student that had to study. I was a good tester, but i would lose homework. College has led to late nights and redbull. Studying has really become my life, but i actually like it in some odd way. Studying brings a new confidence in my schoolwork that i enjoy. Plus, the diverse campus allows me to meet so many different types of people. College for me is just a different experience.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always walk with someone or in a group and I can call campus police if I'm alone. I feel pretty safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love everything about this school. i do my work study hard and dance on my own time. I've made a great deal of friends here and we have a good time going to the games and school functions. There is always something going around campus. There was even a film being made with Jamie Fox, and a few concerts that I have attended. My best friend is also considering coming here in the fall.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I want to major in Nursing and there are many great hospitals in the area that I would like to intern with in the future.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the commons and I love it!!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: never really go to the gym

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Since it is in the heart of downtown, the amount of criminal activities that take place here is a little above average.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am loving GSU so far! The professor here are very friendly and always willing to help.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The quality of employers that are recruiting on campus is exceptionally well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but have friends that live here and from what I hear, I believe the campus housing could improve.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am no into the greek life nor will I ever be so I am unsure of all the facts about it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Although the athletics program here is not the best, it still draws attention to people that are interested in sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think the great part about this school is that it is in the middle of the city; it also provides a lot of opportunities to students.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Because the campus does reside in the city, crime is sort of expected. I believe that a person will be ok if they think appropriately about things.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a variety of classes offered, you just have to enroll in them pretty early because they will get taken by other students. Most classes are big, but you get the opportunity to meet a lot of people because of it. The professors are great and worth getting to know.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't personally searched for any job/internship opportunities but I have heard that you should look into it because it is definitely beneficial!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's not really what I expected but campus housing is very convenient!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek Life but it seems interesting.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Mostly everyone has a lot of school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always things to get involved in!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
