3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are people no matter where you are.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I was stunned at how attractive everyone was. I wondered if they found a way to screen for it.

Guys & Girls: It's absurd how attractive the people are at this school. That being said, it's also absurd how many wonderful people exist in that same group. Of course you have shallow, conceited individuals--they exist everywhere--but there are also some incredibly kind, interesting and fun people to meet as well. Greek life is huge if you're involved, but if you don't want to be, there are plenty of other things to get involved in. Hook-up culture is big, but hey, it's college.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: This school has many people who are all different in many ways. The people you find friendly will be your friends and those you don't won't.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students at the school are very nice and helpful. Almost everyone is in the same boat as you so they understand and just want to be friends. Usually there isn't anyone who is stuck up or just mean.

Most students at UGA are very good-looking and friendly. There are a lot of tan, toned bodies walking around campus and downtown. Students have been classified as easygoing and down-to-earth, making it at least fairly easy to talk to people on and around campus. Going downtown is always a fashion show, since everyone usually looks their best when out on the town. Working out and sunbathing are very popular pastimes, so I guess it's only natural that the general population looks great. Because so many people are from Atlanta, the student body generally reflects the popular styles and trends.

There is definitely a classic frat boy look at UGA that involves the shorter, non-baggy shorts, Rainbow flip-flops, and collared, brightly-colored golf shirts. This, coupled with mop-top hair-that has not been cut since they left home-is pretty standard for many guys. T-shirts and shorts are pretty standard for most of the year, because it's so hot in Athens. Once it gets cold, though, everyone will have black pants and peacoats on with some kind of boots to match-because students need to stay trendy during all seasons.

Social Scene
There are unlimited opportunities to meet people at UGA: on the bus, at the Student Learning Center, in any class, during group projects, in Greek organizations, in clubs, at the library, at sporting events, at coffee shops, and of course, downtown.
Hookups or Relationships?
Many people are in stable relationships, but there is a huge pool of singles out there. Hookups occur rampantly at the bar scene downtown and at football games. Because alcohol is so popular, the walk of shame is pretty common for many students. Almost everyone is looking for romance in some capacity.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
The best places to meet people are downtown Athens and at fraternity parties. Any bar or frat party is bound to be packed with students looking for a good time. People are drunk, well dressed, and are looking to hook up. Many students get dressed up to go out, so there are a lot of beautiful people in Athens. The coed dorms are also great places to meet members of the opposite sex. Usually, the male floors will have some kind of party going on, and watching late-night movies on the futon is very common. With a little maneuvering, the dining halls and libraries can serve as a dating medium, too. Proper seating arrangements are key, but this is not a tough obstacle to overcome.
Dress Code
During the week, especially in the summer, students tend to dress as comfortably and minimally as possible. Some even choose to wear pajamas.

There generally seem to be two schools of dress at UGA. The "Greek" look is very Southern preppy, with many simply wearing various colored t-shirts with Greek letters and themed events on them. The "hipster" look carries a mixture of Bohemian style, American Apparel, vintage t-shirts, ironic haircuts and facial hair, and general looks of indifference.

To go out, most dress up. Downtown, many girls wear designer clothing with high heels. Skimpy little skirts and dresses are always popular. Guys dress up, too, but generally in a "fratty" way with expensive outdoor gear and outerwear, polos, and khakis.

On game day, everyone wears red and black. Men typically wear a red or black polo or collared shirts with gameday pants of some sort. Almost all girls wear sundresses in the school colors. Sunglasses are a must for the glaring sun at Sanford Stadium.
