College Life

In the midst of all the madness that has occurred this semester with studying, classwork and working, we often forget why choosing Georgia State University was a good choice. And that’s why I’m here, to remind you why you chose this great school and why future students will continue to choose Georgia State.

1. The Programs of Study

We offer 100 fields of study and 250 degree programs to choose from to ensure that the interests ...

Georgia State is such a diverse university. And not just in backgrounds, or race, gender, beliefs, ideas, majors, organizations or anything else, but in the different foods we like and the diets we have. I am a pescartarian (or a pesco-vegetarian only eating fish and a vegetarian diet). I began to go on a journey of discovery and also share my favorite places on campus to get ...


Welcome Back Panthers! It is time to get back into school mode and make this semester awesome. One thing I love about spring semester is that it seems to go by much faster, because not only do we have this upcoming Monday off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but also because Spring Break is less than two months away. Not to mention there is always some hope for ...


Thanksgiving Break is ideally supposed to be a time when you relax, enjoy family and friends, catch up on the sleep you’ve missed from studying, and reflect on what you are thankful for.  But when you are in college that idea is far from reality. Here are five things me and mostly every other college student will be doing during Thanksgiving “break”:

1. Playing Catch Up!

As you know our campus is not a traditional campus. We’re not bound by walls or built in a certain formation. WE LIVE, LEARN, AND THRIVE IN THE CITY! A place where art is produced on the walls and where architecture goes higher and gets more creative. Scrolling through Instagram, I found some of the best campus photos taken by Georgia State students. Check them out and feel free to follow ...

 

I remember my favorite part of Halloween was dressing up, trick-or-treating, and going to haunted mazes and houses with my friends from my high school back home in Marietta. But living downtown can make it hard to get into the sprit of Halloween.

You may not have known, but Georgia State gives you that Halloween experience. Whether you choose to trick-or-treat floor to floor in the dorms, attend a costume ...

Cool Info for Student Photographers

I’ve always been a huge fan of photography. I remember flipping through thousands of magazines dissecting every part of a picture attempting to figure out the camera angle, lighting setups, and what equipment was used. That’s how I ultimately realized my passion. I came up with the idea to write this post in order to provide cool info for new student photographers such as myself, because it is the most amazing job in the world.

1. The food is ALWAYS amazing

One of the most unexpected things at the Homecoming Royal Ball is how amazing the food 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.

There is nothing like ...

The Backstory of My Study Abroad Journey

Studying abroad meant a lot to me, even in high school when I began my search for college. I always knew that I wanted to study and travel somewhere in the world, but I also knew that traveling meant having thousands of dollars. But that did not stop me from choosing a school that could fulfill my dreams of studying abroad. ...
