4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The campus is very modern and I appreciate that coming from a very small traditional high school

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many students start getting internships even in their junior year's at UGA and are ready with job offers out of school

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Campus police ar every friendly but I don't often feel safe in the parking lots at night especially since they are not all very well lit

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Payne Hall needs to be either renovated or torn down. It is too old to be a living establishment and is disgusting.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I wish that people wouldn't have a negative opinion of those in Greek communities.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are great, too great if anything. The athletic center uses MacBooks and has tutors on command, and I wish that non athletes were awarded a similar type of treatment when it comes to academics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Georgia is a great school because, though it is known for it's great college atmosphere and party experience, the academics are incredible and challenging

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: There is plenty of student housing available, however most students will only like on campus the first year.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I was not a part of greek life -- I had several friends that were -- but I was able to enjoy many activities sponsored by fraternities/sororities

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: UGA is definitely a top school when it comes to athletics -- Go Dawgs!

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: UGA is a very large school but it is easy to find a close group that will make your experience worthwhile.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms suck. UGA is a high profile school, so they can get away with having crappy dorms. They are small, loud, and just overall annoying. The bathroom was impossible to clean. I tried everything to get the grim out of the shower to no avail. RA's are almost useless. Busses come by all night, making noise. Reed Hall is one of the better dorms, but I still definitely prefer off campus housing.

2 College Junior

Athletics: If you do not like sport, you will be very annoyed every football season. You can't drive anywhere, busses only go to the stadium, restaurants and bars are overcrowded, and it's REALLY loud. Luckily, there are only 6 home games a season, so it's bearable. If you don't go to games, you better be able to entertain yourself for the day because literally everyone you know will be at the game/tailgating.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't affect me much, but I do see them around a lot. They're easy to spot because they all dress the same. There are a lot of houses on Milledge Av. where greek students live. They look fancy from the outside, but the bedrooms seem to be about equivalent to the dorms, at least for freshmen anyway.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's not very well lit at night and there are no "emergency call stations" around campus like many other universities have. I would probably not want to walk around campus by myself after dark.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's pretty similar to ever other major state school in the SEC. I'm glad I'm here because it has one of the top programs in my area of study, but if I wasn't majoring in that, it probably wouldn't make a big difference if I was here or at FSU. I do like the town and the weather, and I met my boyfriend here, which was nice.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Im not greek but i hear some things

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: As someone who plays club, it's frustrating to see football get all the revenue for unimportant things while we have to fight for the scraps. Uga football is life, however.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I came to this school thinking it was third-rate. Sure, the students aren't that smart, but overall everyone really cares and the professors are good. This school has so many useful facilities that no one uses. If this was a northern school, people would enjoy their experience a whole lot more than most people here. If drinking wasnt such a priority, people would actually use the free tutoring services, the libraries, the loanable technology, study spaces, and beautiful quads.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the courses I've taken haven't been too hard. Some departments make courses hard to make people withdraw from the class which I don't like. I also didn't like the amount of TAs I had my first semester.

Overall Experience: A degree from UGA definitely looks awesome on a resume. I feel very confident that I will be able to have tons of opportunities after college.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. There are not many stories of crimes happening on campus. Campus police make their rounds all day.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in ECV feels like living in a hotel. I love the room size and the comfort of having my own bathroom. It was not easy to get this dorm however. The housing registration process is such a pain.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I never understood Greek life and still don't. To me, all I hear about Greek life is the parties and the rich kids that are in Greek life.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Since UGA is an SEC school, I knew sports were huge. But a lot of times it feels like people tend to forget that UGA is still a college and we're here to get a degree, not just watch football.

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.
