Campus Food: The food is great because theres a ton of variety and snelling is open 24/7

Campus Housing: the dorms are a great first year experience because you get to meet tons of people however UGA on campus apartments are subpar. None of them have full kitchens. There are no stoves, ovens, dishwashers. The laundry and kitchen is communal.

Guys & Girls: The majority of girls look the same. They are pretty, but often in a fake way. They dress the same (leggings, boots, big sweaters in the winter; Nike shorts, over-sized t-shirts, running shoes in the summer). The abundance of sorority girls is pretty annoying.

The guys are kind of the same. Think typical frat boy.

Administration: I do not live on campus, so I am not overly familiar with how student housing is policed. I hear that it is extremely easy for underage students to get alcohol. Many professors will make class attendance part of the overall grade. The school takes cheating and honor code violations extremely seriously.

Academics: I am a psychology major. Be prepared to be surrounded by a large and predominantly female student cohort. The requirements to complete the program are pretty straightforward. The workload is manageable, and the curriculum is pretty interesting. The Psychology building is one of the older buildings on campus, but it is still nice enough.

Scholarships: The school is pretty expensive. The worst parts are the mandatory fees that are non-negotiable. For instance, you have to pay an athletic fee even if you don't attend any of the sporting events. The financial aid process is pretty average. Just make sure to apply for everything before any deadlines. Some of the people in the financial aid office can be jerks, so be prepared to stand your ground if you have questions or anything for them. Federal/state aid is much easier to get than aid directly from the school.

Diversity: The campus is predominantly white, middle to upper-middle class, liberal, and heterosexual. Its hard for lower socioeconomic status individuals to afford without taking out loans or receiving state/federal scholarships. For the most part, racial and ethnic minorities congregate together and keep to themselves outside of the classroom environment.

Local Area: There are sections to campus/downtown. It is really segregated by student-life and local-life.

Local Area: Athens is a mixed bag. The downtown and 5 points area are nice, full of life, and affluent, but the surrounding areas are poor and run down. The gap between the well to do college students and the working citizens of Athens is surprising and sad sometimes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
