I'm graduating from here tomorrow, I think. At GSU grades are due after graduation and my professor for the class I'm worried about won't get back to me so I've worked six long and hard years to walk and I'm not even sure I'm actually going to graduate when I do which is a complete travesty. I've given up the past six years of my life to get my degree and won't even be able to celebrate during a ceremony I paid $50 for along with an $80 cap and down, not to mention the thousands that I am now in debt. I just feel broken at this point and like the very extensive amount of time and money I spent at GSU is ending with a harsh slap in the face and a powerful kick to the bleak hobo-ridden curb. My degree is in Film and Video and while some classes were beneficial, many of them, as I assume is the case at any college, are mind-numbing. You memorize stuff, spit it out on a Scantron or superficial essay, then forget it. Now you're educated, or rather, you're learning to more willingly jump through hoops for your masters and follow orders regurgitating and writing things that make you completely miserable in the process. Sure, there are good professors here that have very in-depth lectures on course subject matter, but there are also a few whose lessons and assignments do virtually nothing to truly expand your understanding of what they're supposedly teaching their students. A couple of my film classes, for instance, consisted of making short films and having them ripped apart by the class. Sure, making them was good practice and I received some good feedback on my work, but couldn't I have done that outside the setting of this institution? I'm also an English minor and your average writing class is the same empty void: read assigned and student works and subjectively hyper-analyze and critique them. Can you not practice writing outside of the sterile brick and concrete confines of Georgia State? I guess not. Don't get me wrong, I've intermittently enjoyed my time incubating and postponing employment here and did like some aspects of GSU. They have cool speakers from time to time (you pay for them in fees), decent events (more fees), a somewhat nice gym (fees), and other amenities that you can expect to receive at today's colleges but overall do I feel intelligent and optimistic after graduating? No, instead I feel mangled, old, weak, and straddled by a mountain of debt as I near my completion on the GSU assembly line. Maybe since I'm so educated now I forgot what it was like to not be, or maybe I've just been slowly having my mind molded by the powerful force that is the college institution. One last note if you're still forcing yourself to take them. I lived on campus freshman year and I would not recommend living in an overpriced dorm since you will be at risk of sharing a room with a complete sociopath. You've been warned.

I love French food and I've heard so much about this place that I had to drop in. After my visit I can't say that I feel the same as other who have raved about this place. The atmosphere was nice and so was the service , but the food wasn't the star . It was lunch time and I wanted something lite so, I tried the Crisped Duck Confit with frisée salad and potatoes. The duck was good , but the sauce didn't have much of a flavor. The salad well ... I could have done without, but the potatoes were decent. All and all the meal wasn't bad, but based on what I was told it didn't knock my socks off. I will try them again because I'm always willing to give a restaurant one more chance. My friend had the seafood pasta and she said it was amazing. On my next trip I'm going to try my all time favorite French dish which is Coq Au Vin. Now if this isn't where I need it to be I'm going to have to make this my last trip. This is still a nice place to meet up for drinks and the staff is amazing.
I could not be more pleased with a school, and we have tried a few. My children (ages 3 and 5) often do not want to leave because they are having so much fun. This is the first school where my daughter has been academically challenged, and always in a positive, supportive way. As a non-profit, OMNI is an amazing value. The head-of-school and her husband have worked tirelessly and sacrificed to offer this educational opportunity as a ministry to our community. As an MIT graduate, I am picky about the quality of my children's education, and as a Christian, I am wary about where and with whom my children spend the majority of their time. However, I can attest that OMNI is truly a place where children can reach their God-given potential, and I pray that many more families will be blessed by what it has to offer.
AIUonline.com is the very best choice for online College. It has a wide variety of programs leading to great jobs and opportunities. The programs are hot and intensive, yet very doable by any hard working determined person. The tuition is very competitive and most importantly the school is accredited. I completed my MED in a little over a year with an intensive program. I was very impressed with the modern high quality online access and interactive experiences that I had. I met people from all over the world that shared their situations and brought their ideas and contributions to each class. They made the learning experience rich and exciting. I almost wish I could do it all over again. Thank you AIU. I am very proud and pleased to be counted as one of your graduates.
Bistro Niko is one of my family's favorite places to go. Last week, I was lucky enough to attend twice. Once for my mothers birthday dinner and then the Veuve Clicquot event! The lively atmosphere is intoxicating and they have some of the best champagne selections in the city. My mom and I sat on the patio overlooking Peachtree and enjoyed the lovely fall weather. The Veuve event there was absolutely packed with young professionals eager to socialize after work. There was decor, drink specials and even a photo backdrop outside to take photos in front of. The Veuve reps walked around taking polaroids of everyone and the Bistro bartenders were having a great time mixing drinks for everyone. Can't wait until their next event.
Oh Pauley's, you had me at hello... I have to admit that I didn't have very high expectations. I just knew I'd be eating crepes. But as soon as I walked towards the restaurant, I knew I'd be getting more than I bargained for. I loved the cool, modern look and feel and all of the windows. I was there during the day, so all of the sunlight woke me up immediately. My server was very helpful and attentive as soon as I sat down at my table. I noticed that there were outlets at the bar, which means I can bring my laptop with me to work while I sip an A.C. Slater (Crown Royal, Ginger Ale, and Pineapple Juice) or two. I'm so glad I found out about this new spot, and that it's near my home. I will definitely be a regular!
A state school located in downtown Atlanta. Ideal for the aspiring student with access to an abundance of opportunities at various fortune 500 companies and beyond.

There are multiple student organizations and plenty of help to get you through your schooling. You have the option of campus living or commuting, including the use of the local public transportation system, MARTA. You can create the experience you want on this campus.
I got a caramel ombre done- I’m super in love with it. Holland, a phase II student, was my stylist and she was so talented and did a great job changing my hair! I got an ombre, cut, and color balance all done and my hair still feels healthy and looks shiny! All this typically cost over $120 in midtown but it was only $60 for me here because I had a groupon so be sure to be on the lookout for more deals! I definitely recommend going to the Paul Mitchell school if you’re looking for an affordable cut and color! the teachers check all of the student's work too!
What a great preschool! Small size classes. A Good Christian focus in what I believe is an excellent educational program. Parents are given effective daily communication with teachers and staff. My kid loves the school. Has made friendships that extend beyond the school. The previous review, dated 2006, sounds like sour grapes to me. This is a top notch school. I consider myself fortunate to have my child enrolled here. (P.S. In my eight years working for a preschool consulting firm, I've seen a wide range of preschools.)
My daughter is a 2nd grader at OMNI and is in her 2nd year at the school. I am extremely pleased with the school, the teacher to student ratio, curriculum, extra curricular activities, and teachers. The curriculum is challenging, but the staff provides all the support and encouragement for her to succeed. I am AMAZED at how well she can read and sing songs in Japanese. I am so impressed that we are planning to use her as our official interpreter when we attend the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan.
