It is a pretty good school with a lot of resources to help students with classes and post-graduation. There are issues with the buildings having water issues like flooding recently causing many people to be displaced and having one of the dinning halls down. Besides that it's great and the workers here are great.
It is one of the best universities located in downtown Atlanta. But I prefer to live off campus. There are lots of homeless people around the area, but it is kind of a safe place than I can think of it. i have never had any problems so far.
I chose GSU because of its metropolitan location and educational opportunities. I was surprised by the student involvement and have found a supportive network. I am personally a member of a student organization and I appreciate the opportunities that are available for students.
I do believe that Georgia State University has many opportunities in both academics and extracurricular activities. Although sports are not my main priority, I am aware that my college is active in various sports. I was definitely a little uncomfortable and nervous at the start of college. Within a year, I felt more safe and welcomed. I’ve made friends I thought. I have been able to explore new places outside my campus. All my professors have been very interactive and helpful to all students! It will take time to get used to the environment, but overall a great school!

This is your future self writing to you. I know that you have selected certain choices regarding your future and how you view your outlook on life. You feel that life is to harsh and that it is very difficult for the poor class to even think of going to college. I know that you may think college is to difficult and expensive and beyond your reach. You will by this time have opted to go to the military in the hopes of paying for college this way, you will also make a priority to try and get a vehicle before going to college. I am writing this letter to you to try and convince you otherwise. The fafsa will assist you with 80% of your financial need. You will also be able to borrow funds through subsudized loans. This funds borrowed will be much cheaper then purchasing that vehicle that will break down on you in 5 years and will be unusable. I urge you my past self to change your plans and go to college right after high school as this will be the best course of action for you.

A very diverse person.
Georgia State is a fun, exciting, diversified school.
I came here because my major (music technology). The music technology program here is a lot of fun and I've learned a lot.
its location and openness. anyone is capable of waling into our campus.
Someone looking for a good public education that is still prestigious enough for it's credit.
I wish I knew how open the campus was.
For its diverse student population.
Definitely the campus. It's not a traditional college campus, which I like. I can walk around the heart of Atlanta while being close to my classes.
This school has a lot of research opportunities. Furthermore, the careercenter has a lot of opportunities and preparation for like after university. There are also many programs for lower income students, single parents, and/or non-traditional students. I especially love the diversity of the campus and the plethora of major options.
The most frustrating part of Georgia State is the amount of people and the size of the univeristy. The university is too small, and the amount of students attending is far more than the university can hold. For instance, during finals week at Georgia State, there is absolutely no room in the library to study from 10am-3pm. The amount of students in the classes are also huge, which makes it hard to meet with professors and get the right amount of help while also making impossible for a professor to remember who you are.
The stereotype at GSU is that the majority of students are nontraditional (older working individuals going back to school after entering the workforce). This stereotype is not accurate at all! GSU has over 30,000 students, and most of the students I have encountered are traditional students fresh out of high school.
I consider the academics at my school above average. Professors generally know me by my name. My favorite classes are the ones for my major which is psychology. My least favorite classes are those dealing with global issues and other political science topics. Students do not study as much as they need to. Seniors study the most and then it declines with class. Class participation is very, very common. Students do engage in intellectual conversations outside of class often. Students do tend to be secrety competitive which only motivates them to do better and excel. The most unique class I have ever taken was one abroad in Ireland which was titled the psychological causes and consequences of terorrism. Psychology is thought to be an easy subject, but is actually a very challenging major. Towards your upper level classes, writing becomes more intense and so does the sunject matter. The psychology department provides lots of opportunities to get involved with doing things towards your psychology career. I normally do not spend time with my professors outside of class. I feel the school's academic requirements is normal. The education at this school is geared towards learning I think more so than getting a job. I thik this also depends on your major, for psychology is useful information in life in general.
Georgia State University is what keeps downtown Atlanta alive. Most of the businesses around the campus open and close with the university. Many of the corporations in Atlanta provide connections for many of the students and eventually become our employers. Though enrollment has been increasing each year, causing the campus to be a little overcrowded, there is no doubt that attending Georgia State University can result in you making lasting connections, no matter your major. There are plenty of areas on campus that service the students' needs whether we need to study, eat, watch TV, workout, get homework done, or take a nap between classes. Because we are what keeps downtown Atlanta alive, the school pride is immense as we cheer on your athletic teams, especially the new football team and the basketball team. With so much variety at Georgia State, it is often hard to feel out of place.
Giving back to the community in various ways which is commendable.
Many students attend sports events on campus, but since we were founded as a commuter school, not many students regularly attend games. Are football team is new and is working out the kinks. However, our volleyball teams and basketball teams have more successful records.
ranges from 20-250 ppl. since i'm a bschool major, our classes are mostly lectures, but i'm sure if you're an arts major, it's more hands on.
Depending on where you go- the Georgia Dome, Turner Field, Underground Atlanta, The Georgia Aquarium or the Georgia World Congress Center.
