Cherry Bryant - 12/2/2018
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018
"The professor I encounter cared for my well being in the classes I attended. The school provides a lot of information on what courses need to take to graduate. Also, I love the events that are provided for the students. My favorite is during finals week the schools have stations to relax with free food and massages. The university fit perfectly for my needs."

"The Enrollment and Admission process is the most inefficient I have ever experienced. I took one online class and withdrew because it was poorly structured and impossible to pass. After a year of frustration, Im done with this school and moving on to another."

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"My experience Robinson College of Business was exceptional. The teachers at Georgia State work to help you succeed. Some of the teachers were very challenging but these are the best teachers. They provide you with a real-life experience and prepare you for the business world. If I was to stay in school for other degrees, GA State would be the one!"

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

18 Undergraduate Student - 5/10/2018
Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2018
"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."

Camille Stephens - 12/14/2017
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2009
"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."

Degree: Public Policy

"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."
