Nevertheless, it’s #finalsszn, which means it’s back to the books before we break for the semester. No need stress though, use these five helpful tips to get you through the rest of the semester.

 

1. Write It Out

Dig up ...

It seemed like yesterday when my mother and I took a tour of Georgia State with our eyes wide-open in amazement at the student success and extracurricular activities I would soon be a part of. Here I am, almost three years later, with triple the thankfulness to be a student at this school.

Since it’s the season of giving thanks, five things I’m thankful for at Georgia State are:

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because it allows me to unleash my inner thrill. It is the season for putting frightening jack-o’-lanterns on the front porch, sticking creepy scarecrows in the front yard and bingeing on Halloween movies! However, being away from home keeps me from celebrating whole-heartedly. Luckily, Woodruff Park is bringing Halloween to us! With weekly screen-on-the-green style movies at sunset, we can relive our childhood memories each Wednesday ...

Are you playing around with the idea of living on campus or figuring out the pros and cons? Living on campus was one of the best decisions I ever made at Georgia State! As an incoming freshman in 2016 I was anxious about living with three other roommates, but those doubts went away as I gained friends of a lifetime and got involved on campus.

Organization after organization lined up at Georgia State Stadium earlier this month for the Student Organization Fair.  My fellow student assistant, Noah,  and I were in attendance and had the chance to interact with members about their organization’s purpose and goals for the semester.

By now organizations are sending follow-up emails to aspiring and new members about general body meetings, volunteer sign-ups, and more. And we all know loads of information, especially ...

Hello fellow students, blog readers, adventurers, and friends! First, I’d like to thank recent grad and former blogger Donte for passing the torch on to me here at Georgia State. I am extremely excited for what this opportunity holds for the future. Hopefully I can share with all of you a little about my life and the experiences I have here at Georgia State and throughout downtown Atlanta. Each semester I’ve noticed ...

For the people at Georgia State that know me, they know me for being the photographer with huge dreams and aspirations. I’ve put countless hours of work into school, my job, and also photography. Working for Georgia State’s Public Relations and Marketing Communications team has taught me so much about soft skills, writing proper emails, working in a professional space, and not being afraid to reach out. Which was everything I needed ...

There is no better combination than music, romance, and storytelling! And Georgia State’s Rialto Center  brings Netflix to you with a series of musicals throughout the rest of the semester. From Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music to Rialto Jazz for Kids Jazz Jam, you will be thrilled with how amazing the talent is featured at our Opera Theater. Check out what’s coming up at the Rialto and get ...

Flowers are blooming by the Student Center and students are soaking in the sun by Library Plaza. Along with celebrating the new season, right now is the perfect time to get things in order with your life and spring cleaning is the solution!

Some may assume that spring cleaning just involved taking sweaters and boots home during spring break. However, spring cleaning also refers to taking care of any inconsistencies, loose ends, ...
