Health & Safety: There are many different types of people in Athens so you always have to be careful. The campus is usually very safe, it's the locals that can cause a lot of issues.

Campus Housing: It depends where you live. ECV is super nice and set up like apartments, but you don't get the social interaction like in the dorms. The dorms are tiny and cluttered and still have community bathrooms

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: So many different options and price ranges. You can find almost anything you can think of. A romantic dinner, late night snack, and cheap brunch are all within a few miles of each other with lots of variety.

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot to do in athens but the main thing to experience is the night life! it is unlike anywhere else. the locals are very nice to the students, especially on the weekends when they are usually out. there is a lot of shopping, but the shopping is kind of pricey.

Campus Strictness: the campus is overall not to strict with things, which is good because you really do feel like you are in the real world making decisions on your own. they are very strict with academics (violations, honor code, etc.).

Off-Campus Dining: there are soooo many off campus dining options. i do not think i will be able to eat at all of them by the time i graduate because there are so many. they offer so many varieties of food and you can find anything within your price range.

Greek Life: the greek life is awesome at this university! even though only about half the students are greek, their precense is very known and you can see greek letters on shirts everywhere. the non greeks however do view the greeks as snobby and buying their friends. the students involved in greek life are also very involved in philanthropy organizations and they have good gpas, otherwise they are on academic probation.

Overall Experience: I have had the best experience at UGA! there is so much to do, almost too much to do, and i could never have experienced these things anywhere else. saturdays between the hedges is probably one of the best things at the university. everybody is so nice and so helpful. you can only do better at this university with all the opportunities. the classes can be hard but the social scene is so much fun.

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.
