a current student here
Major thing for prospective students is safety. Georgia State is a city campus school located in downtown Atlanta. The most important thing to remember when attending here is to always be aware of your surroundings. Not saying that the security at Georgia State isn't top notch, just make sure you keep aware of what you are doing and who you are doing it with. Another tip is to stay in touch with your advisors I know in high school your counselor pretty much handled your classes and extra curricular however this is adult life. Your advisor is there to assist you in anyway you need to lead you on the right path to earning your degree fast and effectively. My final tip is take your courses SERIOUSLY, like I said before this is not high school your mom and dad or the school can not make you go to class. It is very important that you attend class, stay on top of your studies and make a lasting impression on your professors. Remember you going to class and passing the class does not affect the professor, it is your money being spent so do what is best and go to class.
