Georgia State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (31)
My academic experience at Georgia State University was both fulfilling and rewarding. The dedicated faculty in the Geosciences department are continually introducing field work opportunities for experience outside of the classroom. Professors with a combination of professional and academic experience contribute to the broad scale of research to which students are exposed. Faculty and staff are committed to providing the resources needed for students to pursue a secondary degree or start a career. Two formative undergraduate experiences, with the encouragement of professors, shaped my desire to pursue a graduate degree. The first was ongoing research at Wormsloe State Historic Site in Chatham Country, Georgia. This groundwater study, an undergraduate research project headed by Dr. Brian Meyer, centered on collecting and analyzing shallow groundwater samples for salinity content, conductivity profiles and contamination levels. The most valuable part of my involvement in this project was the exchange of ideas with my colleague and professor. In addition, we were able to share our results with ecological conservation efforts on the isle: the reintroduction of the gopher tortoise and introduction of Longleaf Pine habitat. My teams conclusions, focusing on nearby industrial and municipal withdrawals, sea level rise and climate change, were presented at Georgia States Undergraduate Research Conference, the Southeastern GSA Poster Session and the National GSA Poster Session. The second experience that has helped shape my pursuit was studying abroad as part of the Plate Tectonics, Biological Diversity and Continent Building in Costa Rica program, administered by Dr. Paulo Hidalgo of Georgia State. This dynamic session enabled me to see firsthand the juxtaposition of plate tectonics and the Earths history with problems, opportunities and challenges that define our modern-day era: conservation of the rain forests and other natural environments, and displacement of inhabitants due to natural disasters.
I have transferred from Georgia Perimeter College to pursue my education. I have not enjoyed attending this university. First, some of the important courses are not flexible enough for full time working students. Second, there are too many students cheating in a class. Third, parking space is just not enough for students. Between 11:30am- 2pm, theres no parking space. Finally, during 2018 graduation ceremony, they didnt have my name or seat number prepared. I registered for this ceremony in 2017. I went around asking people about the seat number but every single one of them told me to sit on a chair with no numbers which were located all the way back. They also made people with no seat numbers to get in a line but later told us to go back to where we were sitting. When I asked whats going on, one of the lady who was working told me Im going last because I was late or something. I was there early, like when they opened at 5 pm early. No one informed anything about the seat number all the way through the graduation. I couldnt believe how unorganized this school has been all the way until the end. One of the worst experience I ever had.
Georgia State University is a great university right in the heart of Atlanta. The nursing program equipped me with the knowledge needed to be a successful nurse. The professors were knowledgeable and caring. There is an enormous selection of clinical sites that GSU students were allowed to come for hands on experience. The cost of the degree was affordable. The NCLEX pass rate is exceptional for the nursing program.
The location of the school is great and there is always something to do. There are a good amount of safety problems since it is in the city. A wide range of students regarding age and ethnicity. I would recommend this school for anyone that wants a good education and enjoys being in a big city.
Georgia State University is a great university. I am proud to be a Panther. During my time in my program, I acquired the skills and knowledge necessary for law school. A traditional school atmosphere and city flair makes a well rounded experience.
The Andrew Young School at Georgia State University is an excellent program for students seeking degrees in Public Policy. The program combines both theory and practical education very well. The internship course is an added benefit for students, allowing them to get real-world experience while earning college credit. I greatly enjoyed my time at GSU and recommend it to others.
Georgia State University has a very diverse student body. The campus is situated in center of a vibrant city with secure parking areas. The teachers in the art department are truly amazing. They are passionate about their professions and have been on faculty for many years. Their commitment to their students and school is evident.
I enjoyed Georgia State thoroughly because it was in the city of Atlanta with plenty of nearby events and opportunities. For instance being in a business oriented city when it's time to find internships for your final semester there were plenty to choose from . The school has great lasting relationships with many places also giving the students more opportunities to grow. They have grad school fairs , job fairs, internship fairs. Anything you need as far as continuing towards your career path they have a fair that brings hundreds of companies in one place for you to reach out to them. I personally chose my degree because it had a lot of prerequisites for graduate school . I am now going to UAB Birmingham for Occupational Therapy. Georgia State career services helped me write all my papers and finish my applications. if I would've went earlier they could have connected me with different internships so I could receive more shadow hours for school .
Georgia State University is located in the heart of Atlanta, that fact alone honestly scared me. Between the constant traffic and the hassle of finding parking, I knew that attending any major University would be a feat, however, I did not take into consideration the financial aid, housing, and counseling facets of school. This did not deter me from continuing my education, and I am glad that I stuck with this University. Although I faced some hardships I can say that my professors really cared about me and my success through out my matriculation. I absolutely loved my department, and the help they offered. I would recommend the speech department to anyone, you learn more about yourself and others, how and why majority of people interact and communicate, and it honestly helped me be more aware of myself, and the actions I take. There will be challenges in everything you do in life, but I can say that Georgia State University was worth the long waits in the financial aid line, and finding a parking space at Turner Field.
Georgia State University is an awesome school. I wish I would have gotten more involved on campus. It has many opportunities to succeed in your major and in your career. Taking advantage of the Career Center is one of the best things to do for building your resume to finding a job. The diversity of the school is comforting. I like being able to experience different cultures.
