ATLANTA, GA - Georgia State University will be holding a series of celebrations at the beginning of each semester to help the students engage and adjust to the university.

There are a lot of activities and events both in-person across campus and also virtually. Including the "Ask Me" booths to help students transitioning into the first week of classes.

The ask me booths will be available in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Clarkston, Decatur, Dunwoody, and Newton. Most of the booths will be located in the building lobby.

The booths will be available from August 23, until August 27 in the first 5 days of classes, there will be volunteers from Georgia State that will act as staff that will help students answer their questions.

Here below are some of the events that will be held this August:
