"Georgia State student are full of different people around the world." Yes people from all over come to Georgia state
This school has the stereotype of being ghetto. I have to admit that it can be ghetto at times, however you will encounter that in most universities. It all depends on the groups that you hang around.
People are always like "oh you go to GA State. You must be smart." It's true!
Geeks and Frat Kids... Like every stereotypes, these descriptions are not completely accurate.
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.
The stereotype is anyone can get into GSU, but it's not that way at all.
A stereotype of Georgia State University is that it is predominately a commuter school. Although this still holds true the nature of the campus is changing rapidly. GSU has opened up three new housing facilities plus a fraternity/sorority complex. This is putting more students on the campus of GSU and is helping it transition into a more traditional style campus.
Well, the stereotypes usually come from other students from various schools because they assume that we are a bit brash or rude simply because our school is located in a very urban area, Atlanta. Fortunately, this isn't true at all. Honestly, Georgia State (and I'm not just advertising) is a very placid, positive, and diversity school, which in some cases is very hard to find. Because you meet so many kind, intelligent people on campus, it would be hard not to make any friends and network. Also, there is hardly any space or time for students to classify or categorize each other, so everyone gets to mix and mingle. Trust me, you should definitely visit.
Majority of the student population is very friendly! You will never walk down the street without waving to random people or even speaking to them.
Many of the stereotypes I have heard from my school are that no one at GSU can be a bad student or a uneducated person. People suspect everyone at Georgia State is a scholar. Also a lot of people believe our campus life is flawed, we are stuck in the middle of downtown and "collegetown". You would never know who the person is walking beside you, a student, worker, or regular citizen exploring the town. I would say Georgia State is great! You dont have to be brilliant to go here, you just need dedication. There are many resources to help you through classes. For campus life, we are just the same as everyone else "you see the same people everyday" literally. lol
The stereotype of many students at my school is that, because we are located in Atlanta, that they are "posers". In general, we may be seen as students who try to be something that we are not because attending a university in the city creates a different experience than attending a university with a traditional campus.
Also, it appear that students involved in Greek life "run" student life. Being a part of Greek life puts students in the position to receive whatever they may want/be qualified for over anyone else because of their connections. But that is not to say that non-Greek students do not hold leadership titles or are invisible on campus.
Most people think it's an all black school like a HBCU. This stereotype isn't accurate. We have multicultures here.
One stereotype I have heard is that GSU students are "wanna be" UGA students, and I fear at times, we do attempt to act like them. But I also believe we have our own personality.
The most common stereotypes about the sororities and fraternities at my school is that all they do is party and don't get along with other sororities and fraternities. The Greek organizations actually participate in a lot of community service and education programs for the campus. They also have mixers where different sororities and fraternities get together and have meetings and learn ways to make their organizations better.
Something of everything!
Common stereotypes? Well, there are plenty at Georgia State University! Of course you have your Jocks, Greeks, Stoners, Nerds, Art Freaks, the works! The stereotypes are pretty accurate and because the school is so huge, diverse and is located within different parts of the city, everyone pretty much sticks to their clique for the most part.So where would I consider myself on the social ladder? Well, I'm more of a Nerd/Art Freak ; ). I am obsessive compulsive about my grades, and I am a theatre freak - Just think of me as your "Sharpay" from High School Musical!
There are the typical ones you would expect to see. Theres the ravers, Greeks,jocks, artistic, hip hop, hipsters, etc. But most people are very friendly and accepting of everyone.
Georgia State University is the most diverse campus I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Every class has students from different backgrounds and cultures, meeting new people is the most exciting part of an education here!
It is believed that Georgia State University students are arrogant and self-centered. However I can test to the falseness that comes with that stereotype because since I began attending GSU, I have received nothing but care and support from the people I know and also from those I do not know. It is as if everyone sees you as family, regardless of who you are.
The common stereotype amongst my peers our geeks and preppy.
There are a lot of different types of students at GSU. Many students are hard workers. They "live" in the library (eating, taking naps, studying, hanging out, etc.) There are 13,500 people visiting the library in the main campus, downtown, everyday (12/06/2011). A lot of people are from mixed ethnicities such as Japanese and white, Hispanic and African American, Korean and white, Chinese and white, black French, etc.There are a good amount of Chinese. Recently, there are a number of Italians and Indonesians coming to the school. They are brilliant at science and math. A number of students are crazy about certain things such as technology and tatoos, or gothic music. There are not a lot of stoners around. People around here are friendly. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, if you go to the courtyard in front of library North, you will likely get live music (unless it's too cold) of sorts like hiphop, rock, techno, pop that attract huge crowds.
Georgia State students do not get the same college experience as other students who go to universities with a formal campus.
At Georgia State University you will find everything. Every race, every stereotype, there are so many different students walking this campus daily its amazing.
Jocks are the popular types.
Frat Kids always like to party and have fun
Stoners always like to get "high"
Geeks are very smart, but are almost always unpopular
This stereotype is not very accurate, but movies about high school life portray the stereotypes in these common ways, so students and people think that these stereotypes are accurately correct.
The Asians. The Blacks and the White kids(preppy and hippy)
Generally the undergraduate students are seen as a class of students that don't work very hard or have any challenges involved in their current courses. That is not true for most students! I admit that I see every semester a lot of people who throw their college educations out the door, but I also see a lot of hard working individuals that juggle work and courses. I work very hard every semester and each class holds its own challenges.
I think that the diversity of Georgia State University is a great thing. We have many international students, minorities, and we have the greatest homosexual population of students of any GA college. That provides the students who go here with an opportunity to network with many people from many walks of life.
While some fraternities and sororities like to have fun, they still put on education programs on campus, fundraise for causes, and they find ways to help the community through different community services.
