What is your overall opinion of this school?

While I appreciate the (mostly) clean facilities, the diversity of students, and the opportunities available to me at Georgia State, I feel as though I am receiving a mediocre at best education. Most students do not care about their classes and I have witnessed a drug deal or two in a criminal justice classroom. Not to mention the sheer number of people who have asked for answers from me after I watched them online shop on Wayfair for the majority of the class. My US History professor cancelled class so often I ended up never going and I STILL got an A; it was a total waste of money and time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgia State is a good university to attend, if you're not so big on a "traditional" campus. It is in the middle of the city so there is a lot going on and it is always busy. One thing that I do wish that Georgia State had better of is school spirit. You'll see it here and there, for maybe like the first game of the season, but after the first game you don't get the same energy. Academically, there is a lot of potential. I personally enjoy the city life every day. There are so many resources here at Georgia State and there is so much to do in between classes. It is a really cool experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Gerogia State is a very decent school. It provides ton of opportunity to those who seek it. It is a very big, very divers school, so you will see tons of new people everyday. The staff is not the worst thing ever but they could improve it tremendously. Also with Georgia State not being a traditional campus makes it a very open campus to everyone around. You will see tons of people who don't go to Georgia State on the campus on a regular basis

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, I love Georgia State. I have met so many new and different people this year alone because of my enrollment at the school. It is a very different lifestyle compared to students at other universities being that our campus takes off half the city of Atlanta. It's a great experience and I couldn't ask for a better school. I love all of my professors. Freshman 1010 is a pretty unnecessary class but I have friends that I feel like I'll have for a lifetime in there which is amazing. I stay in the freshman dorm and I love it there. I'm sad I have to move out and live in the Commons next year. I recommend Georgia state to all of my high school friends and friends who are already in a college but are considering transferring. GSU is everything and I'm glad I'm a panther.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgia State University is in the heart of downtown Atlanta. it is known for its incredible arts and music scene, as well as the rich history of the Civil Rights Movement. It is a school that is filled to the brim with opportunity and excitement, and there is always something to explore and get involved in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I’m glad I’m attending, I’ve gotten nothing but great things from going here. The professors are very willing to give any student a chance at success as long as you’re willing to put in the work and acknowledging that. It really does make it feel like I’m not online in my current education goals. With it being an open campus, I don’t think I’m comfortable being so in the middle of a huge city, as there are plenty of outsiders around the school zone. It does make you feel unsafe, but walking in groups is always essential, and it doesn’t just apply here but anywhere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an on-campus student. I really enjoy living on Georgia State's campus because of their dorms, dinings, and resources such as the GSU panter express shuttle bus, recreational center, library and etc. Their dining hall has a wide selection of food from different ethnics. Moreover, Georgia State has 3 different dining halls available to me so if I did not like the food choices from one dining hall, I can go to the other ones. Another thing I really appreciate about the dining halls is that their Central dining hall is open 24/7 during the weekdays. That is extremely convenient for me since I have night classes and tend to study late. Furthermore, each dorm has a proper heating and AC system as well as a window! This may sound surprising but a window makes such a difference. The window allows natural sunlight to shed through and brightens up the room. It can really help you start your day and bring positive vibes into a time where you can feel down from being homesick or filled with loads of assignments. I pride Georgia State for their resources. Their recreational center has a fitness center, game room, multiple studios, courts, aquatic center and plenty of others. It has something for everybody. Such a great university!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgia State University is often an overlooked school out of the big name colleges in the state. Georgia State , however, is no school to overlook. The campus is in the heart of downtown Atlanta and offers over 250 majors. There is something for everyone at this university. The campus includes 5 on campus housing faculties, 3 dining halls, a state of the art recreational facility, a movie theater, and so much more!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgia State University is a great school that finds itself in downtown Atlanta. This location in the center of Atlanta, which is the heart of one of the largest metro areas in the country, plays a large part in attracting a large student base and is one of the main reasons I chose GSU. I’ll be talking about my freshmen experience at GSU. First I’ll talk about living on campus. I live in Piedmont Central the newest dorm that was built in 2016. The rooms have 2 roommates each and what shocked me first when I entered my dorm is how tiny it is. However, you will get used to the size as time goes on. The dining hall food is utter trash however. Usually going somewhere to eat is pleasant and relaxing, but the inconsistency of the food is so horrible that its running around in circles to find something even remotely edible in that place. Next I will to talk about the academic life at GSU. I’ll start of by saying that GSU has great professors that surpassed my highest expectations. They really want to provide resources and guidance to help you setup your path to success. They have regular office hours and you can talk to them about anything.There is also a great variety of classes to take so I couldn’t be more happy with the academic side of GSU. There is an issue with other faculty. Other than the professors none of the faculty seem to be friendly. They just seem like they don’t want to be there and as a result barely help you out. It is incredibly frustrating especially for newer students. Finally I’ll talk about other opportunities GSU provides for their students. I’m currently enrolled in the J Mack Robinson College of Business and as long as you but yourself out their they will take care of you. They have regular business events with guest speakers and other team building exercises. GSU also has clubs that represent just about any hobby one can think about and provides a great way to find friends with similar interests. To conclude GSU will teach you what you need to learn and more, but it is imperative that you put yourself out there and take advantage of extracurricular activities to stand out to potential employees. I give it ⅘ stars.
