Expensive but easy to find the book you need for classes. The staff is very knowledgeable of what you need for particular classes. Its a typical college book store

Pricey, though typical for a university bookstore. Since the GSU website usually didn't provide ISBN numbers, I would have to go here to to collect those, but I would then take my business online.

I wouldn't recommend the Georgia State University Bookstore for textbook purchases. I have always been able to find them cheaper elsewhere (either online or at a neighboring bookstore). Although they are convenient, the Georgia Bookstore is only a block or so down and most of the time is a fraction of the price.

The education is great and most of the professors are great as well. Registering and paying is a pain though. Be sure to keep up with your classes and any changes because this will cause an extra class and of course added money! You can't beat the value though compared to private colleges.

The School isn't the best, it's a mid-tier school, but from that category it's one of the better ones. It's the fourth best school in Georgia behind Emory, Georgia Tech, and The University of Georgia. It's the second largest university in Georgia with over 25,000 students. It's mainly known as a "commuter school" however that is quickly changing. Georgia State is investing money into building a large dorm and many more buildings to improve campus life. The requirements are getting a bit stiffer each year and its ranking in US News is also improving. GSU has a great business program, probably the best in Georgia. It's weaker in other areas but by all means not terrible. I studied computer information systems briefly here and the professors I had were either graudates or former professors from such respected schools as: MIT, Caltech, Harvard, and John Hopkins. Not all my professors had such credentials but they do exist here & will challenge you. The Athletic Program isn't that great, the basketball program was popular when I attended when Lefty Driesell was coach and GSU winning its first NCAA tournament game over Wisconsin. However, the president doesn't sees much in athletics and there is no football program. In the south, football is huge & I see this as a huge mistake. Besides education, athletics (football) is most important when it comes to schools in the south and GSU needs a football program to be legitimized as a real university (improve it's image with a real college experience) for potential students. The education & tuition cost is good value for the money in my estimation (as long as you're in-state). The best thing about GSU are the students in the courtyard holding hands and singing: "GSU, nah nah nah. GSU, nah nah nah. GSU is the best school."

Pros: Faculty, Downtown Urban Location, Reputation!

Cons: Parking Can Be Tricky, If Driving!

I went to Georgia state to do some graduate coursework to complete my teaching certification. Although it is in the middle of downtown, I was never intimidated by the traffic. I always felt safe as well which was one of my concerns after dark. I enjoyed my classes and the professors were always super friendly and most were in tune with the world outside of academia. It was easy to find the buildings and classrooms. I would definitely recommend for someone pursuing graduate work.

I attended Georgia State University for my undergraduate degrees in biology and nursing and I am finishing my master's in nursing there as well. What's most rewarding about GSU is the return for your investment. I have received a quality education that has allowed me to work in a myriad of positions in the healthcare field. Unlike many of my peers, I don't have thousands of dollars of student loan debt thanks to the great prices at GSU.

PROS: Location, price, programs of study, internship opportunities
CONS: Limited individualized attention at undergrad level

I started attending Georgia State as a freshmen in the fall of 2002 and I have had mixed feelings about it ever since. The atmosphere of Georgia State is clearly it's best quality. Walking around the heart of Atlanta, eating at Underground only a block away, and walking through the parks on the way to class are great advantages to this school. The key disadvantage is the lack of a school identity. A lack of sports funding (especially a lack of a football team), has led to a lack of a real student body.

Georgia state has a mixed reputation in Atlanta. Some say its great, and others say its not so good. It's mainly a commuter school, as many of its students are from the Atlanta area. But they do have dorms that are pretty nice. They're business program has a really good reputation, and it's a reasonably priced school--must cheaper than Emory.

The phone lines are often busy and you'll have to wait very long to get through if you are trying to talk to someone at the Admissions office. Once connected, the people are very friendly - no matter which department.

People don't consider it a very good school because it's not very hard to get in. However, Georgia State University is one of the four research Universities in Georgia. Their Business program is much, much better than Emory and UGA's. A number of the programs are in the nations top ten.

Dorm life is great! Apartment style homes - personal bedrooms, one bathroom every two people, living room, and kitchen.

PROS: Business Program, Dorm Life
CONS:
