  • Staying on campus allows a great look into urban city life. It is best to avoid non-students that linger around campus. It is great that every dorm facility displays programs…

    Meal plans will always get repetitive over time. Make sure you go an hour before they close or it will be super busy and/or not a lot of food left.

    dining hall food isn't all that bad, it's a few steps up from cafeteria food. And most on campus dining is good to. Downside? everything on or around campus closes at 5

    Georgia State has a very wide selection of on campus and off campus dining. There are your conventional shops (pizza, salad bar, etc) and then there are your exotic places like indian cuisine, greek, and asian all around the campus. Its an adventure every day finding new places to stop by and try! You will get the true international experience and you will never say there is nothing to eat around here. Honestly, some of the food is a little different, so what i recommend doing is trying a bunch of different laces and picking a few good one and just keep going to them and trying different things on the menu. Most places have customer loyalty cards so the more you go to them, the better the deals you get! I did leave out one star for a reason, the options within the schools student center are not cheap. Most of the items you buy are slightly overpriced but that is expected at any university system. Other than that, the selection, most of the quality, and the tastefulness of the food are all great!

    Greek Life isn't as prevalent on this campus as on a traditional campus nonetheless, they are still very involved. Our greek row is actually in the growing process so if you wanted to become a part of the building process as a founder this is the perfect opportunity.

    Greek life is at GSU if you want to join, however, the majority of students are not in sororities or fraternities so do not feel like you have to do it. If you want to, that's great, and if you don't, that's great too.

    There are a bunch of different Greeks. You will typically know one when you see one by the way they're dressed.

    Not big on Greek life but it is there if you want to join. But if that's what you're really looking for, you should probably look at another school.

    Greek life is everywhere on campus. Ensure you have your studies together before applying because you will need to devote a lot of time to the organization of your choice. The greek life is alive on GSU and they have a close bond that is seen all around campus.

    I am not involved, but from the outside looking in it seems like a lot of fun! There are so many different sororities and fraternities to join. Do not hold back!

    The sorority and fraternity life here live up to the expectation of what a real sorority and a fraternity should look and be like. I recommend students to at least go through the recruitment process because it is a great experience to consider being in a sorority.
