Question
I loved this school but there is anBrightOther
I loved this school but there is an adjustment period.
PROS:
1. SO DIVERSE. I probably at one point in each year of college had friends of every race. I knew many different people, met so many acquaintances. And if you really put yourself out there I'm sure you'd make a ton of friends of all diverse cultures and backgrounds.

2. Professors do care, there are some that just have really easy classes but these classes are awesome as well.

3. Liberal- very hip and liberal. I liked the mix of different personalities, different sororities, dif crowds.

4. Law library is beautiful and great place to study.
5. Gym is 4 floors, like whattttt
6. Library, well you can always certainly find a spot to study
7. Just commute and you will save a ton of money and have a better experience
CONS:
Not enough places to buy food around campus. The campus dining options suck.
Prepared to pay up if you want on campus living
Hobos everywhere
You really dont feel safe sometimes, especially parking on campus and leaving your car there. I sometimes worried if someone would break in. Also I was catcalled at points from hobos, not fun

Parking is a pain, so I'd rather ride marta.
Some buildings are old and ugly
Weekends at gsu in the dorms are kinda boring, unless youre involved in student activities.Just commute

Question

I started here back in 2012, and had a very positive outlook on what my college education would create for my future. However, over the past years, it has become more negative and negative. I'm nearly graduated, learning or retaining nearly nothing useful for the real world. My department has several professors that have no care for their students and it's all about a number count for us. Emails are disregarded, ignored, or neglected. Even with current experience in a job, it is not considered applicable to college credit because I haven't completed one of their courses which has no relevance to the field I am going for or currently in. The CIS department is ranked highly in the nation according to different websites, however the way the department is managed and handled is a joke. I would never recommend this program to anyone that actually wants to learn about their major, but rather to anyone who already knows what they're doing and are just in need of that sheet of paper. Which at this point, is all I'm going for.
