Academics: I met someone that was majoring in something similar to rocket science.. that's not the actual degree name, but it's along those lines. Science majors are more than abundant here from bio majors to rocket scientists

Off-Campus Housing: It's cheaper to live off campus, but the places aren't that great

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: There a some dining halls that are better than others. Dining halls are basically ran by students so what can you expect. We just built a new three story dining hall so cross your fingers

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Athenes is in the middle of nowhere!

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Athens is in the middle of nowhere in UGA's defense. Most places are only driving distance, really far!

3 College Junior

Facilities: I cam from a nontraditional campus so I think it's pretty average here?

2 College Junior

Diversity: Compared to my first institution, Georgia State University, there is barely any diversity. Every religious, ethnic/race, sexual orientation, etc is represented I think, but definitely not in large numbers.

5 College Junior

Majors: Love my major. There are so many opportunities for internships and jobs for major. A lot of employers come to UGA looking for people to hire. UGA is such a big family fellow alumni want to give you jobs because they know you will be qualified and you're a bulldawg!

4 College Junior

Majors: I had one internship and I loved it. It was for marketing for a Division I athletic program There was a lot of "ground work" ( long hours, hard work) but you have to start somewhere it was worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: You actually have to work for your degree, it won't just be given to you.

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.
