I like that the student body is so diverse, and us being in the city you're able to find a lot to do. As far as staff, specifically in the enrollment services and advisement, I wish they would show a bit more concern for students, and let them know all of their options instead of leaving students ignorant.

My school is the best for anyone who has left school for some time and is returning. This setting will allow him or her to be put back on track easily. There are a lot of services designed to help in multiple ways the returning student. I was helped too.

My first year off college was exceptional, I really didn't get into that many activities or organizations in school just stayed to myself most of the time. I never took advantage of the si sessions that professors would suggest if I didn't understand what happened in class. This year i'm more productive and actually learning a lot more material by going to the sessions and interacting. Meeting new people around campus hasn't been a problem and most of them are actually nice and don't mind talking or hanging out. The GSU students have the most school spirit in Atlanta and that's one of the most unique characteristics of the school. The school also has some of the best parties on and off campus so i'm glad I picked this school.
