5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The campus is beautiful. You can go anywhere and study, have a date, or relax!

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public transportation is great; however, there needs to me more buses, especially at night. More buses would help with the crowding.

4 College Junior

Weather: Rain or Shine, students will still find ways to have fun!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Make sure you have HOPE, Zell Miller, Fellows Foundation, and/or any other scholarship going into UGA! It's expensive!

4 College Junior

Facilities: Each building on campus has a different design to it

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: They have a 5 and 7 day meal plan with unlimited dining!

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Great atmosphere. Downtown is right beside campus. Always have an activity or sports going on. Love it!

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Police always around, everyone makes you feel safe.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining halls are great! Like all great things, though, they can get old after a while. There's good places to eat Downtown, and the Barbarito's in Tate is convenient if you don't want to go all the way Downtown. Bulldawg Food is one of the best things ever--all the delivery places in the area all in one place online. So easy and convenient when you don't want to leave your building.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Loads of people from many different races and backgrounds.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Totally fun and filled with people! Always something going on

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Campus is huge and lots of things to do around it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Awesome food real close to campus that offer lots of discounts!!

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking during the day without a parking permit is hassle. However, if you are willing to fork up a couple of dollars you can always find parking at Tate Center. At night, parking is extremely easy to find.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There is diversity at UGA but not a vast amount. There are people from all over the world but they tend to socialize and stick with their own race. So, the answer is there is diversity but not much assimilation of diversity between the students.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The newer infrastructures are very nice. They are basically apartments on campus with all the amenities provided for you. However, the older buildings have become quite rundown. The living quarters are tight and sometimes emit funky odors.The good news is at the staff are friendly and there to help.

3 College Junior

Weather: For the most part the weather is great. The only exception is during the summer. This should be no surprise to anyone that lives in Georgia. It becomes very humid during the summer.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is plenty of officers on campus in the off chance there is a disturbance. The campus however, is very safe and the students are friendly with one another. The atmosphere is quite calming and students generally do not have to worry about riots or violence.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: They are very strict and can be total d*cks if they catch you on campus with drugs.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The bars are fun but get old if you frequent them. Which of course you shouldn't do too much if you're studying.. hah. Coming from Atlanta where clubs are often open until 4am, I really did not like the fact that everything shuts down at 2am there. Plus everything is 21+ cept bad manor, but it's a college town.. so.. yeah..

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: campus transit is a hassle to me. during class hours they are alright between buildings with classes, but getting from dorms to the areas with class buildings was a pain. especially from brumby (Russell stop) to tate.. annoying when trying to get to first class of the day. after usual class hours they come much less frequently so you will want to know the schedule, but theyre often late/early

1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: way too strict, especially in dorms. given I probably got the worst of it living in brumby, it was still pretty strict.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Not that I've paid a lot of attention to it, but I'd say UGA is a fairly diverse campus overall. They have clubs for just about everything you could imagine, catering to everyone's needs.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: So many students are a part of fraternities/sororities. They all dress exactly a like . It's a little ridiculous.

Transportation: UGA has pretty good on-campus transportation. Class changes are hard, though, because the buses are really full with students trying to get from one place to another. A few more buses would be nice.

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.
