The landscape at Georgia State University is very vast and urban. The university is not your conventional campus to say the least. When people think of college, what comes to mind is an independent institution that operates
as a small town in its own way. The likes of University of Georgia or University of Kentucky tends to fit that old. Georgia State does not and that is mainly due to where it is located geographically. Georgia State University is set in the heart of downtown Atlanta. The Falcons stadium along with Phillips arena are both one short taxi ride away from the university library. Not to mention the campus is surrounded by businesses stretching from coca-cola to Delta air lines. I have had conversations with students who said they enjoy the campus even though they feel they are not on one half the time. Most of them say “There is plenty to do” or “It is hardly ever dull around here”, signifying all the attractions the city has to offer its inhabitants. While the campus is unorthodox, it does not seem like the students are bothered by it one bit.
