4 College Junior

Athletics: School spirit is huge on campus. Everyone is a huge supporter of our teams and clubs. We love anything and everything that has to do with our school. Club sports are a little overshadowed by varsity sports but they are still a big hit and many people participate in them.

Diversity: I go to a very diverse school. There is a great ethnic/racial diversity. Everyone seems to accept everyone. I love it because it adds character to the school. Religion is also pretty wide spread which makes topics of conversation very interesting and engaging.

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at my school. There is a whole street dedicated to greek housing. I think Greek students are probably very nice, but it's the atmosphere that they create when non-greeks are around that make us view them differently.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls at my school seem to really be into their appearance. The greek life is huge and those are the people that I mainly see walking around campus. They basically all wear the same thing, do the same thing, and live the same lifestyle.

Overall Experience: I am literally in love with this school...otherwise I would not have wasted thirty minutes of my life filling out this survey. All I can say is COME HERE. The academics are impressive, the football games are so fun, Greek life is exciting, Nightlife is never dull, the campus is beautiful, the town of Athens has so much to offer. At least once a week my friends and I were discussing how much we loved UGA....that doesn't happen at every college. I came to UGA from out of state and it is my best decision to date.

One of the most amazing things about students at UGA is that I have never heard one person say they don't like being here. UGA and Athens have so much to offer in so many different categories, that there really is something for everyone. The positive energy of 30,000 people who are happy to be here is captivating, and something you will instantly want to be a part of. It will not take long before you regard Athens as your second home, and after about a week, most students forget how big a school it is.

It's exciting to be in Athens because there is always something going on, whether it is entertainment, a demonstration, job fairs, or just a chance to hang out with people you just met who are now your best friends. Students are encouraged to explore their talents and make the most of their four years here, and most students are able to achieve their ultimate "college experience." Sometimes, it seems like we are all characters in some cheesy teen movie because college life in Athens is so classic, but academically, socially, and personally, this school seems to have changed most of us for the better.
