Georgia State University Reviews
Review Georgia State University
I have been a student at Georgia State University for four years. I have had an overall good experience with this university. As a transfer student, I feel that GSU gives new students the opportunity to take tours and get to know the school & campus so that they are not overwhelmed their freshman year. The Academic Advisement centers have been very helpful to me as I am a student who often has many questions! I have also had some really wonderful teachers that have inspired me in many ways as a student. If I could suggest improvement in any way, it would be to employ more people in the Office of Financial Aid. A university of this size would benefit from a bigger financial aid office as to reach every student when they have questions regarding student aid. Overall I would rate my experience as a student at Georgia State University as a four out of five.
Some of my teachers either had bad English or had a thick accent, so I had to use other forms of help. Overall, the school is fun and friendly, and the Panthers treat everyone as if they were family! Classes are never too big, and most classes have SI sessions (peer tutors/ TAs) to help you understand what you did not in class. Security is always ready to solve problems and are continuously driving around watching the dorms. Also, there is a police escort van that is 24hrs that will come pick you up.
I entered Georgia State University as a transitional student and the students here were very helpful with finding class locations and with providing resources about the school. The professors I had were really nice and available whenever I needed additional help or to discuss course material that am not able to discuss in-class or through email. Though I did not stay on-campus, Georgia State has a wide range of campus events - entertainment, sports, career-based, improve your skills events, joining a club event, etc - that draws everyone close whether you stay on-campus or not. Do not let the large, open campus deter you away from visiting or attending Georgia State. You will learn new things and meet new people from various cultures. Love this school!
