"Georgia State University has a great Early Childhood Education program. One of the main reasons I like it is because you earn an endorsement while you are getting your Masters. I chose to get my mathematics and support/coaching endorsement. I have already seen a difference in my ability to teach children. Last school year when I was enrolled in the math classes all of my students improved their end of the year Iowa scores. I was so happy that my investment was paying off so fast!"

"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."

"The College of Education at Georgia State University is a great school. I went there both undergraduate and graduate. The faculty is helpful and personable. Most of them are doctors, but you never feel like you are beneath them . They promote hands on, cooperative learning which allows you to network with other educators in your area. I have learned a lot not only from my professors but from my classmates as well. The curriculum was relevant and useful in my career. It has provided me with the skill set needed to be a confident and successful educator."

"Went to Robinson School of Business. The professors have great research experience; student body is very diverse with ppl from all ethnic backgrounds and from international countries and the alumni network is huge and helpful. The school has highly reputable Finance and MIS departments; their actuarial sciences program is also well respected in the industry. Had a great experience at the school; also the degree helps you in advancing in your career especially if you are based in the SouthEast area where the school is well-known."

"Georgia State University is good public research university. I highly recommend their business and economics schools. Really great faculty in those colleges and tuition waivers are available to most grad students. It is the "concrete campus" of Atlanta since the university is located right in downtown along with other businesses with no real campus. It is a diverse university which is also great. Their HR can be a bit confusing with paperwork - especially if you are getting assistantship - and cause major delays, hence it is a good idea to check in with them regularly when you are about to start the program."

"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."

"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."

"I attended Georgia State University and majored in Sociology. The overall experience was an average one. The Campus is scattered all throughout the downtown Atlanta. The buildings are often conveniently located near the subway station. Georgia State University is primarily a commuters school. On campus housing is good with quality living quarters. The detractor is the location in the inner city and the crime that come along with the locale. The professors are for the most part well trained and qualified professionals. Many of them have publications in scholarly journals and papers. The average classroom size varies. In the sciences be aware that the classroom sizes can be massive with 100 plus students easily in the lecture hall. The primary way to get to class is by foot. Georgia State offers a shuttle service as well. The Georgia State football and basketball teams are still fairly new but up and coming. The diversity at the school is very well mixed. You will find a true blend of many races and age groups throughout campus. Overall Georgia State University is a good school and its what you make of it that matters. You can participate in the greek life if you desire or you can focus on your classes and studies. Its an average/ good university. Just be ready to find you way around the inner city of Atlanta to get to your classes."

"Georgia State is a research facility. This to say that each professor also has their own research. Because of this, they are very intelligent about their chosen subject. However, it also means that they are often more focused on their research than their students. If you are an introvert like myself and do not often go to office hours, this is a reasonable trade-off, but if you seek a more attentive set of faculty, I would recommend a smaller program."
