    Find your classes beforehand because it is easy to get lost, but after a week you pretty much will know the campus like the back of your hand. Also review your professors before you so your final selections on picking which classes you are taking for the semester. GET YOUR TEXTBOOKS ON TIME! The bookstore line is ridiculous!

    If you are looking to attend Georgia State there are a few things to consider. First of all it is right in the heart of down town Atlanta, not the safest place to be. They tell you that there are always police around and you feel safe. There are some police but not as many as there should be. At night it is very dangerous to go outside. Where ever you are staying you are pretty much stuck there every night unless you have a car and can drive somewhere else safely. The teachers are very good here though. They usually have an actual job as well as being a professor. This makes the class more enjoyable because they actual know what they are talking about and actual enjoy it themselves. The consolers here at not the best, They just want to get you in and out as quick as possible. I have several friends who had to attend an extra year because their consoler didn't tell them that they needed to take certain classes in order to graduate. It can be very frustrating. The clubs and activities that are offered are the most frustrating. They are run by students and are very unorganized. Trying to find out what a club is about is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. No one has any information, they just keep telling you to talk to this person but that person either doesn't know anything either or just doesn't respond. If you are looking to come here know that the campus isn't that safe, the teachers are great, the consolers and other help could care less, and the clubs are just a big heap of confusion.

    To anyone wanting to learn more about Georgia State, I highly suggest that you make an actual visit to the school; they offer tours daily and even give you a free voucher for food in a dining hall at the end of the tour. I would also suggest that you apply as soon as you can because GSU is a very large school and space fills up really quick. I live in metro Atlanta, and knew very little about GSU, even my parents, who were actually born and raised in the actual city of Atlanta knew little about it because it has changed so much over the last 15 years, and so my best advice is to just go visit it.

    If you are looking for a school with leaders in the field, supportive faculty and staff, at a reasonable price, GSU is the school to choose. There are many extra benefits and services for students, such as free counseling, hiking trips around the world, tutorial and educational support services. However, as a student you must take the initiative to find the different services available to you, which is not always easy.
