Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I think Georgia State has an excellent Spanish program. Although it is quite small, you really connect with the professors and fellow students and it creates a great atmosphere for making the most of your education. You will never feel like just another student lost in the crowd in this program. The courses are very interesting, and all of the professors are extremely helpful, insightful, and knowledgable. I would definitely recommend this University┬┤s program.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2016

It is overall amazing. The people, access to equipment, access to information are all amazing. It is a bit too by the book and competition oriented for my liking. But, biology has turned into a bit of a rat race given limited funds for research so competition must exist everywhere in academic biology.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is very unique due to the location of the school. Georgia State University is located in downtown Atlanta; therefore, the school is a non-traditional campus. The buildings are all over downtown, which allows students to experience real life before they graduate. The faculty associated with my program are extremely knowledgeable, world-renowned professionals who are always available to assist us whenever we need it. The workload is realistic but challenging. I absolutely love it.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Diversity and support are definitely two of the stronger factors that went into my choice of Georgia State's education graduate program. The professors are friendly and helpful. Also, for the cost of attendance, I would rank the academic quality as considerably high. The only downsides to attending GSU's education graduate program are the surrounding area of downtown Atlanta may appear a bit rough (but the campus police definitely seem on top of things) and the fact that student body is quite large (therefore, it can tricky getting the in-class attention you need.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The Neuroscience Program at GSU is highly competitive and allows me to interact with distinguished faculty. The only con is that GSU's student fees are too high.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

My favorite part about the College of Law at Georgia State University is the teachers. The professors are very invested in the growth of their students and have a wonderful way of communicating the subjects that they are obviously passionate about. GSU is located in downtown Atlanta which provides ample opportunity to get involved in a busy legal community. While the downtown location can help students create productive networks it also has a reputation for not being the safest campus. Being a younger woman, I am often nervous while walking to my car late at night, but the campus police do a wonderful job with providing a presences that make nervous individuals like myself feel more safe.

Large school in the middle of downtown Atlanta allows for lots of opportunities, both academic and social.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2011

Campus protection was lacking, one too many incident were student were getting robbed by non-student visitors. There was no transportation to local stores for grocery and the cost of paying for parking was highly expensive compared to other universities both local and not.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2014

I wish that the university would make the program more rigorous through research and applied coursework such as a capstone project or internship. However, I appreciate that the faculty is very accessible and hands-on with connecting students to resources.
