4 College Freshman

Academics: Workload is a lot- hey it's college, but since I took a lot of APs in high school, I felt very prepared.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Lots of diversity on campus from ethnic/racial diversity to political beliefs.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since UGA is such a big school there is so much to get involved in and make a big school smaller.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most people at UGA belong to a fairly well-off American background, but there is a good amount of diversity because it's such a large school. Most are white, straight, Republican, and well off financially.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm in Sports Management and have only taken one class in my major. It was extremely interesting and the work load wasn't bad at all. The teacher did tend to be very specific in her exam questions.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors I've had were extremely knowledgeable and genuinely wanted to see their students succeed and learn as much as possible. Registering with OASIS was awful but Athena seems like it will be much better.

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.
