4 College Senior

Majors: To enter the business school, you have to take a standardized test and write two declarative statements as to why you want to be in one of the 10 different majors available. Depending on which major you wish to call your own will determine what grades they take into consideration during the admission process.

5 College Senior

Majors: As a marketing and sales major, I can easily get a sales job where I am getting hands on experience in the world of professional selling. Also, programs like the Sales Competition through the Terry College of Business provide great practice.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants in Athens are amazing. There is a wide variety to choose from. You will be lucky if you can try them all in the 4 or 5 years that you are here. Last Resort and Mama's Boy are two of my favorites.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is not a single threat on campus. I literally leave my door unlocked everyday without having a slight worry of theft.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls at Georgia are extremely beautiful. It is a ten to one ratio of girls to guys;therefore, there are plenty of them. They guys are mostly friendly and helpful. I have not seen or witnessed any fights. Everyone is extremely friendly!

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Even though the stats show that the majority of people aren't in frats or sororities, they have a strong presence on campus. Most of them are just excuses to party. Greek life is kind of looked down upon by non-Greeks because it's viewed as a way of buying your friends and are mostly made up of typical white southerners. But since both of these types of people rarely associate with each other, it's not that big of a deal.

2 College Freshman

Majors: For the most part the major opinions are good. However, they aren't very detailed and if you have a very specific major in mind than you might just have to do the general one. Also they don't have many creative opinion, such as creative writing or screenwriting.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's unfortunate that UGA makes all first year students live on campus in the dorms. You don't get to choose who your hall mates are and they can be very loud and annoying. They are usually disruptive during quiet hours and RA's don't really do anything.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It is a lot of math! Once you pass PSYC 3980 and 3990 it lightens up. You must do research to get into grad school. The workload is intense at UGA but facilities are awesome and there are several opportunities for internships/etc.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The buses are great, and more than likely you will have a friend who drives if necessary. Also the cabs are cheap, and almost everything is within walking distance (restaurants, gas stations, etc.)

3 College Freshman

Diversity: This school is approximately 40% rich white girl. That is not an exaggeration. There just isn't a lot of non-white people here.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Pretty nice. It's certainly warmer than anything you'd get in a more Northern climate. The summers are like saunas, though.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There is no strictness at all. You can get away with just about anything here. So I've heard, at least.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are SO many options in Athens. You can find anything from apartment complexes designed especially for students, many with amenities like a pool, workout room, etc. Those usually run anywhere from about $250-$500 per room, depending. There are also plenty of cute houses and condos near campus. Huge variety of affordable housing options, most of which are quite close to campus.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are computer labs all over campus. I usually have no trouble finding access to a computer. Fast and reliable wireless is available all over campus. Most people have their own laptops, so if you do not have one and need to use the computers in the labs, they are typically available with no problem. Printing is reasonably priced and you can do so at many places across campus.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The transportation can be really good sometimes. There are times though where there will be so many people trying to use the bus that you can't get on. Or other times you end up waiting 20 minutes for the right bus.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I would say the amount of study abroad opportunities that UGA provides is what sets it apart along with the different opportunities to do research.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I would have to say that the food hasn't lived up to the reputation that they give it at orientation. ECV is by far my favorite because it does have the best food. Most people like Snelling the best because it is open 24 hours.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The campus life here is really enjoyable. You can always find quiet and secluded places to study if you don't enjoy the packed areas. The campus itself is very beautiful. Ramsey is like no other athletic complex out there.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Late Winter/ early Spring it rains pretty frequently but rainy days are wedged between really nice and sunny days. Athens is beautiful rain or shine but when it rains it's a really biting type of cold because it's also fairly windy. The weather is usually pretty sunny though. It hasn't snowed so much recently it has only reached really cold points so I would suggest jackets of varying warmth.

Transportation: It's easy to complain about the bus system when you're running late to class but it's actually a pretty good system. The weekend and evening routes could use some work for they are limited in there stops on campus from about 7pm at night on and on the weekends. Those routes are fewer and far between but a normal weekday route is fairly reliable and will take you practically anywhere. Also the city bus routes often parallel the on campus routes and the on campus routes make stops at popular off-campus student housing. It's completely possible to not have a car but I would recommend it for nights and weekends. There is a new app that tells you what time the bus is expected to show up at your stop that tracks you by GPS. It's not always accurate because the buses are sometimes early or late but improvements are currently being made and it's rumored that it will actually be tracking the buses live sometime soon.

5 College Freshman

Computers: There are always computers available in the Student Learning Center or Tate. There are also countless numbers of labs around campus and I believe this new printing system allows you to print from dining halls now. There are so many special programs like media work and photoshop that you can gain access to as well! If you are in need of computer around noon be ready to scour SLC for one because that's the busiest time but there's never been a time I couldn't find one. Plus free wifi throughout campus at all times.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is usually a headache but it eventually comes to an end. However, I don't always feel like I'm receiving all the aid possible.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I dont live on campus, but i live in an apartment that is equidistant from downtown and campus. It is very nice that campus is right next to downtown.

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.
