College Life

It’s often easier and faster to pull up an app on your phone for information than to sit down at a computer. There are some great Georgia State University apps that help me stay on top of my coursework, and let me know what is happening on campus. Search for and download these awesome apps the next time you’re browsing the App Store or Google Play!

What it’s Like to Transfer

I’m often told that I have a lot of school spirit, especially for having transferred to Georgia State University. People tend to assume that students only transfer here out of necessity, which is not always the case. Sometimes transferring provides a step-up, and other times it’s all a part of the plan.

I’ve had my heart set on being a filmmaker from a very young age, and Georgia State had ...

Don’t Stress, Play with Puppies

It’s hard to argue that there are many things cuter than a puppy. The best motivators, running buddies and “cuddlers” always seem to be our faithful, four-legged companions. Unfortunately, living in an apartment in the city has prevented me from keeping my dog with me. That’s why one of my favorite times of the year is when the puppies come to Georgia State thanks to Alpha Epsilon Pi’s annual AEPuppies charity ...

HOMECOMING 2017 IS ALMOST HERE!

We’re approaching that time of the year when alumni come home and the entire Panther family celebrates our beloved university, HOMECOMING! If you haven’t heard, there will be great events taking place all week because we’re #HomeATLast, including the following:

It’s the FIRST GAME of the Season!

We’ve arrived to the point of the year where our football team will need you all the most, their season. The first game of the season is upon us, so you know what that means… IT’S TIME TO TURN UP and represent our school to the fullest!

If you don’t have plans to attend here are a few reasons why you should reconsider, read some literature on the subject…and go!

1. There will be ...

Throughout our college years, we will go through a few phases in life. They will encourage us to do a variety of things, allowing our collegiate experience to be eventful. As a third year, I’ve realized that as students we often forget about a lot of cool things that our school has to offer us. This leads me to introduce the different student clubs you probably didn’t know we have at Georgia State University.

For instance, ...

The residence halls offered by University Housing are not just meant to be a place where you can only rest your head, they are supposed to be your home away from home. However, that part is completely up to you! When you walk in, your room is a blank canvas to spruce up in a way that makes you feel comfortable. If you’re a ...

Let me tell you, living on campus comes with a lot of perks.  You’re surrounded by cool people, places, and things, AND you’re also right by your classes! You honestly can’t beat that, which is why I highly recommend living on campus your freshman year of college…along with these reasons:

1. It’s convenient   

We are going to make this short and sweet…you are ...

There will come a day when you’re rushing to get dressed to simply make it to that 8:00 am class to the point where you skip breakfast and that morning pick-me-up. And we all know when you miss that morning pick-me-up, your head starts nodding, eyes start drooping and you can’t stay awake to save your life because sleep always wins. But don’t let sleep win!!! You can get your ...
