Question
This campus is inQuite BrightMusic Education
This campus is in DOWNTOWN ATLANTA. Everyone MUST be aware of their surroundings at all times. Make sure you know where you are going, have friends/classmates with you when you're walking from building to building, and make sure to keep all valuables close.

Question
It's very strange.
It's very strange. Many of the kids at my high school have parents that went to GSU. Many of my friends have parents that went to GSU. MY PARENTS went to GSU. All of them, when I talk to them about it, say that it was a good experience where they met a lot of friends and had a fun time. That's weird, because almost everyone I'm friends with here, including myself, are transferring away. Georgia State is not the same school our parents went to. It is twice as big, but only because it is far easier to be admitted now than it was 20 years ago. 20 years ago, the school was 10 percent black. Now it is 40 percent black, with black students dominating the social scene on campus. I don't want to sound racist, but it's not the color that I don't like, it's the culture. Rap music every time there's an event. Ebonics used in the classroom. Center for BLACK student advancement. If you are a whitekid from a white neighborhood who went to a white high school, chances are you want to transfer to GT or UGA, and that's because that's where all your friends probably are. I know I do.
