Finals are Over by Haley Sanders
This means on-campus students have left the campus until the spring semester. In other words, Georgia State University will be borderline ghost-town for the upcoming weeks. Take advantage of this time-as you may want to admire the historical parks in Atlanta, usually crowded by Georgia State students. Some of these places include Woodruff Park, the Chess Court in Woodruff Park, John Calhoun Park, and Hurt Park.
