1. The food is ALWAYS amazing
One of the most unexpected things at the Homecoming Royal Ball is how amazing the food always is. My friends always know that if I am not on the dance floor then I am totally somewhere stuffing my face. The small bites are fancy, but just right for snacking.

2. It’s like a huge Georgia State family reunion

Georgia [State], On My Mind.

I’m trying to write a good-bye post and I don’t know where to start. So, I’m just going to type whatever comes to my mind first. Here goes nothing:   To Georgia State University,              Thank you? I think. I can’t think of a word or like a clever metaphor to compare you to. Your streets, classrooms and family playing as faculty has kept me ...
10 Things you have to do as a new panther at GSU. 1. Embrace the Dorms

Decorate that 7 x 6 ft box like your life depended on it. Hop on that Pinterest (which I know you all do), get creative and enjoy that “college experience” with random strangers for a year, or two.

Ticket Pandemonium

We all want to see our favorite stars in concert at some point in our lives, right? But what price would you pay to stalk their website for tickets or stand in a crowded arena full of screaming fans? Well, for me it was about $290. Yep. But do I consider myself a bigger fan than the next person? Not really.

We all love the thrill of concerts ...

Dodge that flu!

I keep hearing time and again from the media that we students are going back to school in one of the worst flu seasons ever, and I’m wondering if there are ways to fortify myself so I don’t end up sick.  Being a student, it is easy to get run down and overworked, not eat healthy, not sleep. I think we need to guard against it because these things ...

Usually, when a new semester begins for college students across the U.S., it means one thing: another three months of the same routine. Fortunately, at Georgia State we’re not just any college students from across the nation. What do I mean? Well, we’re celebrating our centennial. Still not following? In other words, it’s been 100 years since Georgia State began as an evening school affiliated with Georgia Tech in ...

GSU Leaders of Tomorrow

Even though my international status prevented me from voting in the 2012 election, I was excited to use what I had learned in my required American Government and U.S. History classes to converse or debate with my peers and parents and even have one-way arguments with the commentators on television.
