    The students have to make use and take advantage of what they're paying for. Simply attending classes is not a bang for the buck. Going out, finding that extra club, getting free tutoring, or attending group events will enhance the experience.

    Overall Georgia State University is quite an expensive school, consider many scholarships and achieving HOPE, and even Miller as it covers all your tuition. For many subpar students that happen to be accepted without achieving a state scholarship should consider living off campus if it's an option. The access to the metro services remarkable and should be exploited.

    College can be expensive trust me I know. No one wants to spend thousands of dollars just to sit in a hour and a half class learning thing you may already know. Georgia State really gives you a run for your money. It is never a dull moment on campus and it is so many activities they offer that are free. Some of offered at our dorms like when we had our fall festival, they had a cook out and music and games and you did not have to pay. Or like movie nights where you can go to a dorm and watch a movie and eat free pizza and popcorn. Even though college cost an arm and a leg, Georgia State makes your experience one of a kind and something you would want to invest in.
