Hello Georgia State!
My name is Lolly, and I am the new student assistant for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. I am an international student from London, and I am currently living my dream. It has been an interest of mine to study at Georgia State, and I am excited to tell you about my journey so far.
Georgia State is always looking out for its Panthers and it shows through how we use technology and collaboration to help them stay on the path to graduation. Lately, Georgia State has been recognized by numerous organizations and individuals such as U. S. News & World Report, the Department of Education, The Atlantic, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and even President Obama for our strides in increasing the university’s rate of graduation—an unprecedented 22 points in 10 years—through innovative uses of technology and collaboration across departments.
For example, in its 2016 “America’s Best Colleges” edition, U. S. News & World Report ranked Georgia State fifth in the nation among the top “most innovative” universities. This list ranks institutions “that are making the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology, or facilities,” according to the magazine.
