3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: First time living in an apartment next year.

4 College Freshman

Administration: If you are not completely idiotic, or completely unlucky, you will have no issues here.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Nobody wants to mess with financial aid, the process will always suck.

Campus Food: Snelling, ECV, and the food on baxter/downtown are where you want to eat all your meals.

Campus Housing: You're paying for the location. The rooms and amenities come second, so if you're expecting lavishness, reconsider.

3 College Senior

Administration: I don't know too much.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: You get it if you deserve it and you need it.

Campus Housing: Met some of my best friends there.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food dining hall options are amazing because they are convenient, thus you as a student do not have to stress about cooking or when and where you will eat. However, I dislike the fact that there is no lunch only option for off-campus students, and I also wish that the students could pay in increments - instead of all at once.

Campus Housing: It is great living on campus because it is convenient and often times much safer (because you are surrounded by students most of the time). I live in ECV, so I do have to wake up a bit earlier to make sure I catch the bus in order to get to the center of campus on time - where most of my classes are. I currently live in Building 1516 and I consider it spacious enough. You share a bathroom with your roommate, but that's it! It is definitely one of the best options for a freshman. However, although Brumby and the other two high rises are some of the worst choices, the social atmosphere is much better! You get to communicate with people your year and can always socialize. Since 1516 is much farther away from the freshman dorms, and closer to the upperclassmen, you do lose some of your connections to other freshmen.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is fun because you have a lot of freedom. However if you decide to live downtown then it is very expensive and often loud.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple different options around but most of it is very unhealthy and expensive.

Party Scene: Downtown is always exciting so the part scene is never disappointing. Also the greek system is always throwing get togethers so people are never bored.

Administration: The campus is very strict about somethings. For example they are very strict on the honor code, drug usage, and alcohol. When it comes to things like visitation in dorms and attendance they are more lenient.

Scholarships: Typical they do everything on there own and it isn't much of a problem expect when you need something. When you need to get something done they try but sometimes it becomes a hassle.

Campus Food: The dining halls have a lot of different things to choose from. The food is not the absolute best but it is pretty good.

Campus Housing: Living in 1516, my roommate and I had a large dorm and shared a bathroom. There was a kitchen and laundry mat on alternating floors of the building so cooking and doing your laundry was not a problem. The only bad thing was that people weren't very social.

Overall Experience: As a first year student, I can honestly say UGA has been great. The classes are challenging but doable if you manage your time. Your social life can easily blossom if you give people the chance. There is always something somewhere going on. Here at UGA you will feel the bulldawg pride. Parties are often and close enough for you to find, but you do not feel obligate to go unless you want to. If you are not a partier, it is ok because there are plenty of non-par tiers here as well. The campus is huge but small enough to learn Out of 35,000 people, you will be surprise that your friends may know friends of yours that you didn't they would. North campus is beautiful. There is a club for any and all your interest. The food is great, but you can get tired of it especially if you eat at the same dining hall.

Diversity: There are people with very diverse interests here, but there is not a lot of racial/ethnic diversity. It's a pretty darn white campus.

Academics: Challenging, but not unreasonably so. I feel like I really am learning a lot here, but it doesn't always come easy (not to say that it should.)

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.
