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."

A large urban university located in Atlanta, Georgia. The school is located right next to Grady Memorial hospital and underground atlanta.

In 2012, the school is the fastest growing sugar baby college in the nation so much so that Drake mentioned GSU in his song HYFR. The smell of cheap girls, rachetness, marijuana and bad beer from Green's can never be erased. The school claims to be a research university but barely has enough money to cover their population's computer use. GSU is known to be an unofficial public HBCU sponsoring many events with Clark Atlanta, Morehouse and other HBCUs. GSU got its Panther mascot from Clark Atlanta University.

GSU is also a hub for post-bacc students who want to go back to school. The school is primarily a commuter school. As tuition continues to go up and up the number of students able to afford to live on campus goes down and down.

The school traces its strong African American roots from rapper Ludacris who attended GSU(but didn't graduate)

GSU started out as a night school but has transformed into a night university. The school has a rivalry with Georgia Southern University.

Every night club in Atlanta would be out of business without Georgia State students.
Yo where are you going to college?"

"I didn't get in to UGA or Georiga Tech. I have to go to Georgia State University."

"I'm so sorry, but at least they have football?"

"Yeah, too bad they have lost every season they have been in existence and get worse every year."

"Oh yeah. At least they have dorms?"

"Yeah, too bad the dorms are really just old hotels converted into housing complexes. Most of them look like jail cells."

"Oh that's true. Well, at least if you ever get shot the hospital is right there?"

"Yeah I guess you're right! Go panthers!"

A research university in Atlanta characterized by the intelligent beautiful women and the decent intelligent loyal men. They are known to be the most sophisticated students in Atlanta and graduate Wall Street or corporate ready.

They have a supposed rivalry with Georgia Southern but that's only in the imagination of Georgia Southern Students. The real rivals are Georgia Tech. This is characterized by Georgia Tech stealing the whole business office, a whole dorm, and a whole award winning college of business faculty. Georgia State has stolen nothing from GT. They are originals.

The student mascot is the panther. They are also renowned for their women who can point and get men to roll over, stay, fetch, or pant.
Georgia State University is the only university i recruit from in the south, said the Wall Street executive.
