Exploring 365 Days @ GSU

Anonymous said: enrollment: What is diversity breakdown?

Hello Anonymous!

Thank you for your question and finding my blog! It has literally been years since I have been on the site but your notification of asking a question happened to pop up in my email.

Georgia State prides it itself on being a very diverse school. It is top 14 in the nation and most diverse college in the state of Georgia. The breakdown is as follows:

39%-Caucasian

36%-African American

12%-Asian American

9%-Hispanic/Latino

Also, 30% of our students are First-Generation college students.

Hope this answers your question. Do you have any other questions or concerns? Feel free to also email me at glee15@gsu.edu. I graduated from GSU in fall 2012 and now currently serve as an Admissions Counselor for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. GO STATE!
