4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love going out to eat off campus with friends. There's a lot of variety and delicious food to try that meets anyone's needs.

Campus Food: In my opinion, I have to say UGA has one of the best dining options compared to other schools. Although it is pricy, you are able to get your money's worth.

Off-Campus Housing: All of the off-campus housing options are really close to the school campus and costs are reasonable.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not able to provide an answer since I do not party.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I think the campus strictness is fair. It's not too strict to the point where you feel like you are not having the college experience, but it's not too lenient to the point where school feels dangerous.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My experience with the financial aid process was quick and always on time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is definitely a benefit since it's a much faster way to go to class. You are able to meet new people in the building and get to know different types of people.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school places great importance to sports in particular football. School spirit is big around here. I simply like the gym.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The cost is fine if you have a good part time to full time job and your parents helping you in some way. In my case paying my way through college with no support from family it is hard.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party. From what I hear I guess it's okay.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is fine if you eat once in a while in these locations. The food gets repetitive, and the cost adds up quickly. It is better to make your own food.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The honor code is the most important policy campus has. We are often reminded of it.

Campus is very open to new student organizations and freedom of expression. However simple rules are placed to ensure other's rights are not crossed.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I simply took the FAFSA and it took care of things for me. It is the only thing I had to do.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The actual conditions of the dorms are okay, they are what you expect them to be for a first year college dorm. However, the social aspect makes you never want to leave the dorms. You are feet or floors away from your best friends and its the only time you will ever get to live like that. Live in a high rise for the best social aspect. Live in a low-rise to be the closest to campus, and live in East campus if you want to have luxury living. East Campus is nice for those who want to be closest to the gym, be next to the best dining hall ECV, and have your own bathroom and a more spacious dorms. However, there is a trade off to living in each dorm. If you live on east campus you miss out on the social aspect that you get in the high rises, but if you live in the high rises, you're not as close to a gym and have a lot smaller living quarters and community style bathrooms. It is what you make it and you get to choose what matters most to you when picking a dorm. Put your deposit in for housing as soon as you get into UGA to secure the best opportunity of getting your desired dorm room.

Athletics: Nothing beats UGA athletics. With big SEC football there is an overwhelming school spirit that is unlike any other. Just watch one of Frank Martin's UGA pump up videos to catch a breathe of the bulldawg pride and fall in love with the red and black. 90,000 plus UGA fans gather every home game to rally the dawgs, with southern tailgating, a go dawgs every five seconds, and a sea of red and black cheer on the dawgs between the hedges.

Off-Campus Housing: There are oh so many options for off-campus housing and most locations are right near school. The one's farther away have a bus system and the rest you can walk to from your house. People live in the neighborhoods off of Milledge on streets with all their friends or in apartments downtown. Pineview are townhomes right off South Milledge that are very popular as well. You really can't go wrong.

Off-Campus Dining: Athens is such a foodie town! So so so many good options all across the board of student's budget. Go to The Last Resort of DePalma's for a nice meal out when your parents come to town, go to Taco Stand or Barbarritos for a student budget friendly meal, and Mama's Boy for a local speciality. Athen's I love you!

4 College Freshman

Administration: Campus police are great and always notify us immediately to ensure our safety if something happens on or near campus. UGA has a strict honor code and a violation has severe consequences. They are very very lenient with underage drinking and alcohol. The police have very much a turn the other cheek mentality.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm an Out-of-State student which really hurts you with financial aid, because all the in-state students get it with the Hope Scholarship and Zell. They only offer loans for out-of-state students, which sucks.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: For dining hall food, UGA is #blessed. One of the best things about Meal Plan is the social aspect. I probably met half of my friends in dining halls. Everyone spends there free time in Bolton. Georgia does a really good job of having variety, options, and lots of healthy variety. You can always get the food you are craving. The Niche is legendary and so good. People will wait to get into the Niche because it's that good---wood-fired personal pizzas, ready to made sandwiches, sweet potatoe fries, Jittery Joe's coffee, soft gooey homemade cookies, and gelato. People not on meal plan will pay for the Niche. It's soooo good! O'House has good mexican food and coffee----they have their own coffee shop in the dining hall---great place to study!! Snelling is the place to late night as it's open 24/7 Monday-Thursday yay snellebration!! ECV has the most healthy options and yummy smoothies,,,,great to fuel up after a work out at Ramsey!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: UGA's nightlife is always lively. Downtown Athens at night is crowded, packed and people are always having fun. We didn't get ranked #3 party school for nothing. However, there is a totally different party experience for those of us that don't drink but still want to have fun. Phi Slam hosts outrageously big parties filled with fun themes that attract 400-500 students that don't have alcohol. This promotes a great party atmosphere for everyone. Athens really has a fun place for everyone to hang out.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Can choose from many options and find what you like best. Pretty pricey, but so is on-campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not a big partier, so haven't been to many.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I come from a small town, so Athens has a lot more variety and options!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They understand we are college students, but also know there are rules we have to abide by.

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.
