3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is friendly for the most part but there is a large percentage of guys and girls that are involved with Greek Life. I have no problem with that but a lot of them won't talk to you unless you are in Greek Life and they think they are better than you (this happened to me several times). Almost everyone is country (accent and music wise). Girls are really nice and into dieting and keeping fit. Guys are hot, into working out a lot and goofing around.

Parking: The parking on campus is more difficult than not for students. It is expensive to park close to campus with a parking pass, and lots are often filled with cars that don't have passes. Parking services busts everyone though.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: You'll find quite the mix of guys and girls at UGA. We have a very socially diverse group of students from many different backgrounds. Many are involved in a large social scene, great music atmosphere, as well as athletics support.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few places to eat off campus . Many people like going into downtown athens or five points. If you are willing to travel further out to Atlanta Highway there are also some great restaurants.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love living in the Upperclassmen dorms on campus. It's apartment style and I have my own bathroom inside my room. I share the apartment with just one other person but some of the apartments are for three or four people. I also love the fact that I have an 11.5 month contract for this apartment and dont have to leave for any breaks . Im an out of state student who doesnt get to go home alot so it is great knowing that I have somewhere to stay.

Parking: Parking at UGA is very expensive and very limited. We do have on campus transit with our UGA bus system but I suggest getting to that bus stop early because they fill up very quickly. I find that using my car to travel around campus takes less time but you are only able to park where you have an assigned permit.

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: UGA is consistently rated one of the top party schools in the nation. The bar scene downtown is pretty diverse and most students hang out somewhere downtown. There are different places for everyone's tastes, you just have to visit a lot of different bars and clubs until you find some that you prefer.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Since the town is pretty large and considered a college town, there are hundreds of communities and complexes specifically catering to students throughout town. On the other side of Athens being college town, many places see students as cash cows and charge rates based on proximity to campus and not necessarily the value of the living space.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: They are many great dining places throughout Athens, GA, and since it is a college town, many places stay open late.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Being an SEC school, UGA sports are a very large part of the experience at the school. Football, in particular, is the most popular every year, but the swimming and gymnastics teams are annually ranked with the best in the country.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is always something to do, any night, any location. Especially in downtown with almost 80 bars within a few blocks.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I have been happy with UGA from the lunch & learn info session I attended. They have yet to disappoint. As an MBA candidate, the staff (from the top to the bottom) have always been helpful, available and supportive of whatever I'm trying to do. Joining UGA is definitely like joining a family. The Terry program was my top choice from the beginning of my search and I wouldn't want to go to another program. I'm confident that when I finish the program, I'll leave with a competitive MBA which will allow me to be highly marketable in the workforce.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am not familiar with the off-campus housing at UGA

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I love all of our dining Halls. There is always a variety and they are open pretty late to accommodate late classes. They do get crowded pretty quick though. The food can get old, then just head to another dining Hall. Only bad part is that they are spread across campus, so not terrible convenient depending on where you live.

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus but I've heard a lot about it. I hear all of them are extremely nice, safe, several amenities, close to restaurants and shopping, etc.. Only bad part is commuting back and forth takes a while on bus and there's a lot traffic when you drive. I also hear that they are pretty costly.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Although I like my advisers, buildings, opportunities a lot. The work load and curriculum is rigorous and extremely difficult. It depends very much on your major. For instance, I'm a science major and those courses have a reputation for being much harder.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had one and don't plan on getting one any time soon. Most are unpaid and my classes consume all my time. Depends alot on your major.

5 College Senior

Nightlife: Two words, Downtown Athens! Athens has the best night life through its huge amount of bars. You can expect a tab at the average bar to run you less than 50 bucks which is the cheapest I've ever experienced.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big at UGA but not in a bad way. During the football season some of the best of Greek life can be see by either driving down milledge avenue or east campus roads.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Luckily, UGA is centered in athens, ga which has several different genres of food for an array of prices that range from low price all the way up to the very expensive. You will never become food bored at UGA!

Health & Safety: The University of Georgia is very secure, its a large campus with a rural setting creating a peaceful environment. The university has taken several precautions to keep all the student and faculty members safe.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Athens is a college town where everything is built for the college students. Downtown, one on the most popular attractions has numerous stores to go shopping and a large variety of restaurants as well. At night there are tons of bars that are fun. The campus is beautiful and there is always something going on! The gym offers a bunch of activity options and there are also a couple hundred clubs you can look at.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Being a biology major at UGA is easy and clear cut. Its a good major to choose because so many people are interested in it and many class choices are offered. Advisors are also helpful. It is however a difficult major since you have to take harder Science classes. The faculty is average but many chances of tutors and extra help are offered.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to UGA because there it is affiliated with a great medical school. It also has great class choices for a Biology major. Some beginner classes tend to have big classes of 200-300 students which makes it hard to ask questions and get one on one time but the professors are always open to office hours and helping outside of class. Registering is easy and studying in groups in encouraged.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love the marketing department. I will never regret applying to be a marketing major.

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.
