Overall Experience: Georgia State University is culturally diverse and promotes ton of campus events to get along. As college students, we often identify ourselves with current events, religious beliefs, or by association with a specific group. Georgia State allows its students to express them selves and make changes in the community by promoting fundraisers and building self-awareness.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The best thing about my school has to be the fact that every instructor there treats you like an adult when our comes to your work. They give you the overview of everything that will be covered in the course in the syllabus on the first day of class allowing you to prepared yourself for upcoming activities or even get ahead and do what you can early to free up some of your time for laterms in the semester which could really come in handy. The staff is also very helpful with questions and also treat you very well. The environment is not too boring but not too distracting either, great for college students. If I could I would go back and make Georgia State University my first selection in schools.

Overall Experience: Staff is not helpful, students are given the run around to get simple tasks done. Most professors want to help but are limited as to what they can do. Tuition is being raised once again, and students are constantly charged fees for multiple reasons weather its their fault or not. This school also does not give retrospective refunds so we must pay.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Georgia State University is a very diverse school and offers a lot of students some great opportunities to jump start their careers. However, for my particular major, there could be some room for improvement. I am a Pre-Medical Neuroscience major and I wish that there was a Pre-Med committee that could help to monitor the students. There are some organizations that help to get students prepared for Medical School, but a committee ran by adults would be ideal. If I was in a better state of mind my senior year of high school, I probably would have attended Emory University instead because it is an institution that could better fit me and my major. Overall Georgia State University is a great school and I am happy to be here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love pretty much everything about my school; from the diverse selection of young adults, to the dorms, all the way down to the abundance of Greek life. It is as any college, what you make it!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is as any college it is what you make it. You have to be very productive in wanting to find out about your financial aid. Do not accept unsubsidized loans if you don't have to.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is kind of heavy at GSU but at the same time they're not force feeding with non stop greek activities.

Administration: As long as you are not bothering anyone, they are pretty nice for the most part.

Campus Food: I would eat in the dining hall for the most part, but it's nice to have a variety of restaurants around to go to occasionally.

Scholarships: Some things were understandable and clear while others made me ask several times and check up on with several others.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I have become more mature and more of a loner so I don't go out as much . I hear of things but not interested.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: They have pretty okay options to order from but I wish they were more in a walking distance so I won't always be taxed online.

3 College Junior

Administration: I feel there are many manipulative strangers that are able to connect to students just because staff sees them as a common face.

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.
