Greek Life: Greek life is somewhat present at Georgia State, the most significant time of Greek activity is during probate and homecoming! The events they host have all been enjoyable! A great time to meet new people and enjoy free food and games. Im grateful that although I am not apart of a sorority, I never feel excluded. Hearing friends describe their experiences somewhat encourages me to look into some of our organizations.

Athletics: I am a huge basketball fan! I attended the Georgia State vs Georgia Southern game and it was by far my most enjoyable game yet! I look forward to their match up next season. The game was so enjoyable due to the energy, nearly all of the students remained on their feet throughout the game, cheering, and yelling our panthers to victory. The even went into overtime and Georgia State pulled out a win in the final minutes. It literally felt as though I'd won along with the team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm grateful that I chose Georgia State. The University offers a variety of programs and organizations. Each of my professors have contributed to my intellectual knowledge as well as my preparedness for the real world. In the heart of the city, everyday has the potential to provide a new experience. I have had the opportunity to meet people from different regions across the world, from this I feelI've obtained my greatest lesson. I've been able to experience and learn first hand of cultures that differ from my own, their lifestyle, and, their views on politics, education, music, family, and food! Making friends to share my college journey with has been so rewarding and if given the choice, I would undoubtedly chose Georgia State.

Overall Experience: This is one of the situations where resources are available, but you have to know where to look.

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.
