A large urban research university located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia with a secondary campus in Alpharetta. Georgia State consists of over 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and is renowned globally for its J. Mack Robinson College of Business, the College of Law, and College of Arts and Sciences, among others. Georgia State has traditionally been known as a commuter school with many students taking night classes, but more recently has become a destination university for students fresh out of high school. Georgia State is moving towards a more traditional campus feel. This effort is helped by the recent construction of dorms and the new football program.
Hey, where are you going to college?" "I'm going to Georgia State University." "Cool, I heard they're starting a new football program." "Yeah, I'm going to be in the marching band. I'm really excited."
