Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at the University of Georgia. As an undergraduate student majoring in Management Information Systems, the Terry College of Business provided multiple avenues and events to get connected to professionals in my field. In addition, the majority of my professors were very approachable and took an active interest in their students, not only in their classroom achievements, but also in their post-graduation success as well. The campus has tons of student organizations to get involved in for whatever your interests may be. There are also ample opportunities to work on campus whether it be in the dining halls, as a resident assistant, serving as a tour guide for UGA, or even as a bus driver. You read that right, students can drive the campus transit buses! For those who are big sports fans, watching the Dawgs play football on Saturday afternoons in Sanford Stadium is hard to beat. Go DAWGS!

I recently read that the UGA endowment has crossed the one billion dollar mark. Has that increase in funding helped me with my student debt? Nope. Has the biology department that I studied in seen any improvements in its facilities? Not that I'm aware of. Where is all this money going? I do know that the new head coach for the football team is receiving over 3 million dollars annually and that college administrator pay continue to rise substantially while the average professor's salary remains virtually unchanged. Moreover, the list of impressive sounding administrator jobs continues to increase with titles like "Dean of", "Chief Officer of", and "Executive" and so on. The dingy old labs of the chemistry and biology departments receive the occasional and obligatory touch-ups. That is to say that we see a new computer or a new coat of paint once in a while. Meanwhile, Sanford stadium is a polished and state-of-the art beacon of Athens pride. Come on UGA, get your priorities straight!

I went to the UGA campus as part of a summer veterinary program. Athens itself is a beautiful town, and the campus is no exception. I went on tours of both their former veterinary college as well as the new one. The former was very large and still had many of its facilities being used by professionals. The newer facility was amazing beyond compare. The machinery they were using to treat animals was better than some of the ones in human hospitals! The admissions team and alumni were also extremely friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend UGA to anyone interested in the veterinary field or just medicine in general.
