Overall Experience: I've had great professors and bad professors. It really depends on the department, and teacher you find. Reviews are important.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel comfortable leaving school in my ability to find a job.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus during the day, however just due to society and the surrounding community, walking around after dark as a small female is scary alone. In a group of three or more, I feel safe, however there isn't much the school could do except for maybe add an escorting service for students walking back to the dorms at night from the library/MLC/ downtown and other nearby areas.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The ammenities are old and not too updated, but just due to the typical freshmen experience it was still great. However, The rule enforcement is slightly unfair, due to some RA's smoking with their students, and others judging their residents to no end and hoping in on rooms. If you're a good kid, it's no issue. However, obviously at a large state school there are your typical party students, and they just have to deal with the cards that's handed to them. Very small dorms, dirty bathrooms, close to campus depending on the dorm you get, but a great social experience.

Greek Life: I love it, seeing as I am in a sorority. However, the amazing thing about greek life here is that it is not all consuming. Students involved in Greek life are also very involved in other activities, philanthropy, varsity/club sports, leading student organizations. A lot of my closest friends are not in greek life, and also I'm not only friends with people in my sorority but other sorority and fraternities as well. It is a very inclusive community, even though it may be difficult to get into the sorority of your choosing. Some in a certain group of sororities and fraternities are quite snobbish, but even in those you find good seeds.

4 College Junior

Athletics: HUGE variety. Athletic activity is highly encouraged weither it is for club sports, random intermurial involvement, working out at Ramsey (student center), or joining in on a local 5K. School spirit is unrivaled, team performance is spectacular, and everyone screams out GO DAWGS just for the fun of it due to our immense love for this institution.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The enviornment, opportunities, organization, and passion of the students, staff, and faculty here rival no other. I'm in love with this school, and while stressed out most of the time, wouldn't choose to go to any other.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know too much about Greek life in general. Only Greek life as it pertains to the African american community.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Being that I work for recruiting I can honestly say that we have some of the best facilities in the United States.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes range from small to very large, giving a student a variety of learning experiences and exposing students to different environments and people. The school itself is large, however, the bus system is incredible and is actually the largest mass transit system in the state of Georgia outside of MARTA in Atlanta. Overall, the University of Georgia is an amazing school.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: It is extremely easy to underage drink in Athens. The downtown scene is full of underage kids. If you want to drink, you need a fake ID that's not expired. Doesn't have to be your or even look anything like you.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have taken a few easy courses, but mostly very hard courses. UGA professors do not mess around. They want you to learn and succeed, but they don't always make it easy. I would say my huge gen ed lecture classes were harder than my small 25 person major classes because you develop a strong relationship with the teacher. You aren't just a test score in a 300 person lecture.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Grady College is great. I am learning so much and creating such a strong professional network. I had an unpaid internship this summer that I got from just submitting my resume to a suggested internship that Grady emailed me. They are consistently sending out hiring internships relative to your major. It's a great school. I'm happy and proud to be apart of it.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus, or even off campus. I have definitely heard a few stories about sexual assault which is obviously disturbing and frightening, but unfortunately, there are going to be cases of sexual assault no matter where anyone goes to school. There are campus police that ride around on their little carts during the day and at night. In the downtown scene, which is not even considered campus, there are police at every corner keeping everyone safe. That is why I have always felt safe at UGA but anything could happen so it's always important to keep your guard up.

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus. I lived in Brumby Hall which is one of the high rises and I wouldn't have changed it. Brumby, Creswell and Russell are home to a lot of the greek community freshmen year and they are right by the dining hall, Bolton (which is a huge plus). It was small, for sure. The community shower situation was definitely not my favorite part of the day. But at the end of the day, it was an awesome experience. The high-rises are so social. I met so many people just studying in the lobby or in the elevator. As a girl, I would say those three high-rises are the best freshmen housing. Other great dorms are Morris, Meyers (honors dorm), and east campus housing. Cost was relatively cheap, I thought-- way cheaper than what I'm paying now to live in an apartment. I thought the housing process was also relatively easy and smooth-- no issues there. Location of all dorms are super convenient in one way or another. That's one thing about UGA being such a big campus-- you're always going to be conveniently close to places you want to go and you're always going to be inconveniently far away from places you want to go.

Greek Life: For me, I came to UGA as an out-of-state student. So joining a sorority reduced my new world from 30,000 to 70 in one week. I met some of my very dearest and best friends through my sorority and I'm sure many people share a similar experience. It is a very easy way to meet people, especially if you don't know anyone. However, I do not believe it is a necessity. It is extremely easy to make friends with people of similar interests while not being associated with the greek system. There are so many things to get involved with on campus. I even met some of my best friends in class. It's hard for me to say how non-Greeks view Greek students because I am apart of it, but I would hope they see us as equals just like I see them as equals. If I had to guess, just like any Greek system, I'm sure non-Greeks meet some people who are snobby, exclusive or judgmental but for the most part I would think everyone is nice, open, and genuine. Being a member of the greek community definitely has the housing perk. I lived in my sorority house this past year and it was an amazing experience. All fraternity and sorority houses at Georgia are old, traditional, beautiful mansions. Most of them have enough housing to accommodate almost a whole pledge class. Walking down Milledge Ave, home to most greek houses, will amaze anyone who is seeing them for the first time.

Athletics: We are the Georgia Bulldawgs for cryin' out loud. We take so much pride in our athletics. It makes us who we are. I am very much a girly girl that didn't know anything about sports going into college. Now-- sports are my life. I am more dedicated to following Georgia football than I have ever been to watching any other sport. When we win a game, I couldn't be happier. I get butterflies in my stomach and I feel so proud of what my team accomplished. And when we lose, I am upset and disappointed. It hurts really bad, but I still love my team because I know the players gave it their all. This type of feeling doesn't come from just football. So many students, including myself, religiously attend basketball games, tennis matches and even club soccer tournaments. I think it is safe to say that all UGA students are involved in our athletic system in one way or another. It is truly amazing to be apart of.

Overall Experience: If I could redo my senior year, I wouldn't have applied to any other school besides UGA. Being an out-of-state student from New Jersey, I was nervous about going so far away from home and knowing absolutely no one. Luckily for me, I ended up loving it so much. I firmly believe UGA is one of the most well-rounded universities. Every student is ambitious, strives for success, and has a desire to learn. Meanwhile, everyone also has the ability to have fun, get to know each other, and find themselves. Although UGA is a such a large university, everyone has the opportunity to find a niche circle of people that they get along with. I have found out so much about myself being at UGA such as what I need to do succeed academically and who I want to be as a person. I was fortunate enough to find my circle of friends quickly and easily, but I am even more fortunate to a school where my professional network has the ability to grow daily. UGA is a family and a community. Everyone takes so much pride in being a bulldawg -- which is probably why game days are so amazing.

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.
