Overall Experience: My school is very diverse and always looking to improve safety. They provide students with great and diverse teachers that are not only good at teaching but know the subject very well because of their real life experiences. They are always improving and there are many groups to find that fit you as a person. They have events throughout the year that are exciting and experiences that will change your life.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the half of semester I attended officially I loved my school. I loved each and every class I had and I loved my major. I liked my class sizes, I just didn't like the walk to Aderhold, one of our buildings, but It's fine now. I really liked a majority of all 6 of my professor, my Anthropology and Philosophy professors especially.

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my stay on campus. I stayed in the mostly Freshman hall and although its 3 to a small room I enjoyed it and got to know my amazing roommates. There are plenty of activities on flyers and bulletins for everyone and I love that we offer these because they allow us to get to know one another. There's a courtyard in the middle of our hall and many activities are taken place there! We had our own bathroom and the laundry room was on the 2nd floor. People actually gathered in the lobbies. The cost however was outrageous and I did not have enough financial aid to cover the whole things and my last loan did not come in which led me to move out and eventually being withdrawn from the school for nonpayment. It was a beautiful experience an my only regret is that I couldn't take out the parent plus loan to pay for housing. The move in day was one of the happiest days of my life!

Greek Life: I love seeing the Greeks stroll during what we call Plaza. Its Tuesdays and Thursdays and the Greeks perform their strolls or just have music blasting and vendors everywhere. Its really interesting. I am a non-Greek but I look at the Greeks in a good way.

Athletics: I love the school spirit Georgia State has! I love the games they are fun and exciting, we even have DJ's sometimes. The whole Georgia State athletics is amazing in my opinion

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I so far love my school. I enjoyed my first semester. I loved my classes and my professors were very engaging. My school is very diverse and makes everyone feel included. I loved that we have so many activities to help us get to know other students. I would definitely choose my school again, however I would make sure I have enough financial aid because this semester I was withdrawn for nonpayment.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have no idea about this topic.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus and have never been inside a dorm, so I don't know.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I've never been to an event, but students do get free tickets to events and they are advertised well.

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.
