" Georgia state is a very good place for anyone that is looking to attend college in a major city. The campus is diverse and the staff is very helpful. The cost of living is manageable and they're able to provide students with lots of opportunities within their fields. They offer internships with many of the major companies based out of Atlanta and many students are able to obtain a job right out of school. Their campus is safe and they take measures to ensure that there is enough security to maintain everyone's safety. "

" Unfortunately I cannot speak to most questions/student life experiences, as I am a part time student in the evening MBA program, but overall have had a positive experience during my first year in the program "

" Student financial aid services suck. You literally have to BUG them when it comes to financial aid. It’s so difficult getting emails and responses to your questions regarding financial aid. I’ve heard stories of scholarships being lost and some students receiving other student’s scholarships by mistake. On top of that, while being in Atlanta seems cool you have to keep in mind that there are homeless people on campus too. They can sometimes be aggressive as in yelling in hopes attempting of getting your attention one way or another. Another big problem is that you can’t park just anywhere because certain places are prone to your car windows being smashed by robbers. Georgia State has potential, but the administrators and faculty members just don’t care as much nor do that much to keep students safe. Lastly beware of weed smelling elevators. "

" I transferred to this school, and I don't regret anything. Georgia State was not a traditional campus initially, but has since been making strides to become one. So, do not expect that luxury campus where all you see are the buildings of relating to your school. The university is smack dab in the middle of Atlanta; 9/10 you're going to have to take the train to get to classes, you will see homeless people, you will see people going to and fro from work.. You are literally a part of the "real-world. You may not feel safe all of the time, but there ARE campus police. The class sizes have range -- some classes are over 200 kids, while others are like 18 at best, and that's just depends on your major. Georgia State is super diverse and the school has plenty of connections because of its location meaning you can get more access to internships with companies compared to most schools. This is a great networking school. Socially, you may suffer. The reason being that this school was first a commuter school, so housing is not really a thing... but they've done a really good job of transforming it into one. Because most students here are commuting, it's going to be hard to make friends and meet people. But once you find a couple of friends that you like you'll be okay. Plus this is ATLANTA! There's always something to do because of how many schools are located here, so you'll always have a good time. Just be safe. "

" I enjoyed my experience at GSU, I enjoyed the diversity and the nontraditional urban campus. I made a lot of friends and met like-minded individuals that also have a passion for art and design. Commuting was the only part that made the experience less enjoyable. I would recommended living on campus or near campus to have a greater sense of school spirit/pride. "
