A university located in downtown Atlanta. Georgia State used to be mostly for older people going back to school, but it has grown in popularity and now has lots of on-campus housing and people right out of high school. As of 2010, it is the second-largest university in Georgia with over 30,000 students, and has a second campus in Alpharetta.
Collin: Dude, downtown Atlanta is such a wasteland.

James: Not anymore, it's been taken over by Georgia State.

Georgia State University is a 4-year university located in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a school in the hood for the hood.

Georgia State is known primarily as a commuter school for postbacc students to come back to school. However, the school is quickly becoming a playground for college students.

Since the early 90s the school has faced pressure from competitor schools such as Georgia Southern, North Georgia, West Georgia and Kennesaw State. All of which have passed GSU in average SAT/GPA scores of entering freshman.

Georgia State's student population consists mostly of pothead hipsters, rachet people who transfer in from local HBCUs and community college, wannabe rappers, fobby Koreans/Indians, slackers and deadbeats from high school who do nothing but play video games and watch anime and rednecks from south Georgia(they are attracted to GSU due to the lack of attractive females and the nearby anime convention spots).

The campus is very dangerous and dirty. In 2012, a GSU student and soccer player, Ayokunle Lumpkin, was shot dead in Atlanta. The campus is shared by patrons of Grady Memorial Hospital, Underground Atlanta and the homeless people of the city of Atlanta. GSU has the biggest campus police department in Georgia.

in 2010, the school started a brand new football program. The Panthers went 6-5 in 2010, 3-8 in 2011 and 1-10 in 2012.

GSU was ranked as the fastest growing sugar baby college in the nation in 2012.

A university in downtown Atlanta full of hipsters who spend 90% of their time sitting in the courtyard smoking cigarettes with their beards and glasses on so everyone can see how cool they are. Georgia State is growing in popularity not only because it is one of the more esteemed schools in the state, but also because young hipsters know that they will fit in and can show themselves off to people who understand them.
At Georgia State, smoking out in the courtyard with everyone else. It's so cool
