5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Athens is full of fun restaurants and places to eat, especially downtown. There are definitely places to go that have reasonably inexpensive prices but awesome food.

Campus Dining: UGA has some of the best dining halls I've seen. We have five different ones and they all offer something different. They've always got a lot to choose from and the food is of good quality. There are many seniors that are still on the meal plan because it's that good.

Off-Campus Dining: You can find restaurants on basically every street in Athens! There are plenty to choose from. There are many different food types offered, you can always find something open, and many offer student discounts. Choo Choo's is a popular place that offers Japanese style food for really cheap and they're open late into the night!

Transportation: While generally reliable, the buses are often late, particularly later on in theday, which can be an inconvenience if you are in a hurry to get to class. The routes the buses go cover most of the city.

Nightlife: I'm not overly fond of the nightlife, but from what I hear, it is very fun and very crazy. In addition, there are various house parties that are excellent.

Computers: There is an abundance of computers at the Zell Miller center and some of the dorms: more than enough for any time of the year.

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.
