Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

5 College Freshman

Academics: This is the best business school in Georgia and I know I am getting a quality education. My classes are challenging, but they teach me a lot and I know I will be well prepared for the business world.

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms as a freshman is great because of the social life, but they're really expensive and small and most of them are old. Most people live off campus after freshman year because it is a much better value.

Computers: Access to computers is great, but the wifi network here is really spotty. It will be great one minute and crappy the next. It just depends on where you are and when.

Nightlife: There is a party in Athens every night of the week. You'll never have trouble finding one here and downtown is very popular.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't drink or do drugs, so it is hard for me to say, but the party scene is big here.
