4 College Junior

Diversity: There are a lot of different culture represented by many people from all parts of the world.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are a lot of fraternities and sororities on campus. The parties are fun but they also do a great deal of charity work.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of choice of food to eat off-campus at UGA. Variety restaurants. Each carries a different style, awesome customer service.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: UGA has excellent Athletics committees. Their commitment to sports were extraordinary. Nowhere else in GA you can find such passion with sports.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think that security is very apparent on campus. While some crimes are still present, this is inevitable. Luckily, when there is danger and news of crimes committed, date rape, for example, students are notified via email. Additionally, police officers are present on campus and are seen regularly by students. In many of the residence halls, students must show and scan their UGA ID card to enter, which greatly increases the feeling of security among students living on campus.

5 College Senior

Computers: There are tons of computer labs, their wireless network is great and never fails. When you walk into the labs it is literally like an advertisement for Apple.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is a LOT of policing on campus. There are two different authority figures.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The Miller Learning Center and the Tate Student Center are absolutely beautiful buildings. The dining halls are pretty nice, too.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I'm surprised at how pretty nearly all of the UGA students are. Football is an obsession here, so good luck if you don't care about it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: So many housing options. From one bedroom to four, from low budget to high, Athens is full of apartments, houses, and condos available to rent. There is something for everybody. Athens is an old town so some of the apartment complexes are a little run down, but there are also newer places.

Transportation: Transportation is really a life-saver here at UGA. It saves on the high costs of gas to just ride the bus wherever you need to go, and the bus stops are all at reasonable places so that one doesn't have to walk for miles to get to the building they need to go to. However, the new parking permit system here is... odd, and it costs a lot. I would recommend just being dropped off and taking the bus if you can.

3 College Junior

Weather: You might have to do a bit of walking to the bus stops, but they have areas where you can sit to get out of the rain. There aren't a ton of areas like this, though, so having an umbrella would be a good idea.

5 College Junior

Facilities: There are all kinds of things to do on UGA's campus, from the tons of events that take place here to over 500 clubs and organizations one can join. The place is always buzzing with excitement.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I haven't been here for too long, but from what I've seen, UGA has an excellent Health and Safety program here. There are many places a student can go to talk about health issues, such as the dental clinic, travel clinic, women's clinic, and more at the Health Center. Also, the campus police is top-notch.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The course program is alright. The beginning classes are weed out classes, but it gets better later on

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics are hard at UGA. Many classes are much more difficult than they should be, but if you are interested in a subject than the classes will be interesting

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining halls are great. They have many options, but not all healthy. They have pizza, sandwiches and salads most dining halls.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: My major is very hard. UGA tries to weed out many students at the beginning but after getting through those classes, it gets interesting

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities at UGA are great. We have an awesome gym, great dining halls and amazing running trails. UGA has many fun activities to participate in and there is always something to do.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: No matter who you are or where you come from, it is nearly impossible to feel alone on this campus. There is something for everyone.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The Greek life at the University of Georgia is huge. The houses are beautiful and historic. This definitely creates a unique social scene. There are also a ton of other organizations to get involved with like UGA Miracle, UGA Hero's, or Relay for Life. The traditions here are unbeatable.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I think the University of Georgia has the most school spirit. I love going to football games and cheering in the student section.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The cost to park in campus is way too expensive. They should definitely drop the price.

Campus Strictness: I love University of Georgia. The rules give me the freedom that I need, while still providing students with a safe environment to live and learn.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a ridiculous amount of off-campus housing options at UGA--hardly a day goes by without receiving an email advertising some new complex. However, there are a few common complaints. Many apartment complexes or townhomes are at a considerable distance from campus. While they usually advertise being close to a bus line, buses can get crowded very quickly and you might find yourself forced to pass up two completely full buses before you can find room on one to get to campus. If you don't have a car, living off campus can also make grocery shopping difficult. On the plus side, in off-campus housing, you get your own kitchen and bathroom instead of having to share with an entire hall or building. There's a lot more privacy and freedom. But it does come at the cost of a few transportation-related inconveniences.

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.
