4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am a freshman, so I live in a dorm. However, one of my best friends lives in the Flats at Carr's Hill. Those apartments are extremely nice and very close to campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of off-campus dining options. You can go down town to get food, or you can take a short drive into town where there are plenty of familiar and not so familiar chain restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration at UGA is pretty strict, but not so strict that you can't have any fun. It isn't too bad.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am in the theatre program at UGA, and we are a very close nit group of people. Since there aren't that many of us, we all know each other and hang out together often and have parties. It is like having a really big family.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My parents took out a few loans for me, and I have to look for a lot of scholarships to help me pay for school this next year, but I think I will be okay as long as I receive a few scholarships.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can find whatever sort of housing suits you and your budget best. Next semester, I'll be living at The Club.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are some pretty cool places around town to eat. You can find anything from the Taco Stand, to Pho, to fancy Sushi, to 24-hour burgers and shakes.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Frankly, the strictness of this campus is nearly perfect. They let you have safe fun around town at night and during the day, campus is peaceful and scholarly. My only complaint is that if you have a permit, you should be allowed to park in more than one deck.

College Freshman

Party Scene: Most everyone has a fake ID, but I don't. I only drink in private settings, and I don't party... yet.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you're receiving financial aid past the tuition fee payment deadline, relax. The financial aid deadline is slightly later.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't have meal plan, but I've been to the dining halls with friends twice. For $15 each visit. Ridiculous. Everything except the Mayfield Ice Cream was bland.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's great for most people for the University to require freshmen to live on campus. There's a nice bus system, plenty of expensive parking, nice expensive housing, and a convenient, expensive meal plan. You're right in the middle of all the excitement with plenty of opportunities to get involved. Most freshmen don't have jobs, can't cook, and have parents who supply their children with everything. Most. I'm one of the rare few who have a job, can cook, and my parents dont pay for anything except my insurance, which is fine. I just can't wait to get out of this tiny, overpriced space.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have the meal plan this year and I like knowing that there is unlimited food when I am hungry, but I don't think I'm going to get the meal plan next year because the dining halls close too early, and Snelling is closed on weekends, so I can't eat after 8:00 on Saturdays and Sundays.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My room mate and I were originally placed into supplemental housing, but then we were placed into another room just by ourselves. My housing experience has been great and I'm even on the housing board.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really have any opinion towards it. It doesn't really affect me

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I like going to every sporting event that I can

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know that much about it because I live on campus

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I try not to eat off campus that much because of cost

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think the rules are pretty fair and easy to follow

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got one scholarship but it only covers $750 a semester which doesn't do much.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You can always find a party if you really try, but downtown is always an option if you can't find anything else.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I like the food on campus most of the time. Sometimes it's not that great because it was poorly made

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's nice. You get to be near your friends and close to classes

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm living off campus next year and the place I got seems alright.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Everywhere that I have gone has been pretty great. I'd reccommend.

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.
