My experience in Georgia Perimeter State has been excellent! The campus is always clean and organized. The professor are punctual and very respectful with their students. In fact, they always give chances to those students struggling in their class in order for them to pass. I am looking forward to finish my associates degree in this campus and I totally recommend this school to anyone who's looking for a college to go to.

I attended the Clarkston campus of Perimeter College (now under the umbrella of Georgia State University) for one year as part of their Fine Arts pathway. The value is VERY good-- tuition is extremely reasonable, especially for in-state students, and the classes were pretty good. There are a number of difficulties for those in Fine Arts particularly-- namely that there isn't a good system in place for helping students transfer into a BFA program downtown (at the Atlanta Georgia State University campus), and there is even less support for those who are transferring to arts programs at other schools. There's a general lack of support for fine arts students outside of their classes (no portfolio help, no career help, etc.), and the advisers at Perimeter are utterly useless. If you are transferring downtown, you would do best to coordinate directly with an adviser from the downtown campus. Otherwise it was a generally good experience.
As a student at Georgia Perimeter College I feel A's I think had grown largely since it has merged with Georgia State University, which is one of the best business colleges in the U.S. One specific thing I admire and learn a lot from on this campus is the diversity. Student and teachers come from all around the world which different backgrounds and cultures. I have met many students here like myself who are first generation college students. I am a proud daughter from a first generation family. I have more access to activities and clubs that I am benefiting from and truly appreciate. I am good acedmically because of access to tutors and a big library with helpful resources such books. I am also transitioning to the Georgia State University next semester and the process to transition is easier than to transfer and that is all thanks to Georgia Perimeter College for merging with Georgia State University!
