5 College Junior

Majors: The time commitment for my internship was great practice for my future job. Having to work from 9 am to 5 pm was definitely something I needed to get used to doing. I was responsible for assisting my co-workers with any duties they needed help with. Although I wasn't bad very much, I think I learned a lot about an office environment and that is something money can't buy!

3 College Junior

Majors: Haven't had the opportunity because there are few research internships available in my area.

4 College Junior

Athletics: People go crazy over the Bulldogs, the football team of UGA. Fan support is huge. A lot of other sports (both men's & women's) like basketball, swimming, tennis are also popular but everything gets overshadowed by football.

Drug Safety: Campus enforcement of drug policy is quite good. Drug use is not very noticeable on campus.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: For the most part, students are well-dressed, especially the girls. Social life is great.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: Do not really like the campus dining options. For the price, much better options can be had off-campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lot of variety including some vegan options. Cost ranges from $ to $$. A number of student discounts or just general discounts available.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall experience has been really good so far. Being a graduate student, the academic environment plays a big role and it's quite good here. The help and support of faculty, staff and fellow students is impressive. Athens as a town is fantastic.

5 College Junior

Facilities: First of all, the program is among the best in the country with highly-qualified professors. Secondly, the weather was a major plus-point for me. Additionally, the average time for getting a PhD degree (~ 5 years) was also important.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Student life is great for both graduates ans undergraduates. The campus is beautiful with downtown quite close to the classes so that eating-out and hanging-out places are quite nearby if you need a break from studies. There are tons of campus events that you can get involved in. The campus is quite green with a lot of students preferring to bike. The athletic center has a ton of equipments and there's also a bunch of group fitness classes for those interested.

4 College Junior

Academics: I'm in the Plant Pathology program. It is among the best in the country with both applied and basic research opportunities. The facilities are quite good with a lot of collaboration between the faculty. The curriculum is very flexible and can be tailored to one's needs.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors are highly qualified and have great research programs. Registration process is easy. The courses offered are very good with a reasonable level of difficulty.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The campus is quite diverse especially the sciences & the business school. No idea about arts & humanities. I'm a graduate student in sciences and my experience has been really nice. I haven't faced any issues either on-campus or in Athens itself.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I'm a graduate student and as such my assistantship issues were handled completely by my department. No trouble at all. In fact my department also suggested additional aid that I could qualify for.

Nightlife: Numerous options. No cover charge in a lot of places. Some off-campus apartment complexes provide shuttles. However, the school provides transportation till after midnight.

4 College Junior

Parking: Very strict enforcement of parking laws. Parking costs are all right for the most part. The frequency of on-campus buses is really good and even the off-campus transportation is decent. Not having a car wouldn't be a problem here.

4 College Junior

Weather: Very hot in the summer, pleasant in spring and fall and a reasonable winter. Hasn't snowed in the 2 years I have been here.

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.
