3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't really know about campus housing but the dorms were alright.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not personally in a sorority. I was in one for a semester and dropped because it was super expensive. What we did for the community and the school was awesome, however I still managed to make more friends outside of my sorority rather than in it. Some, not all, of the girls seemed to be pretentious and judgemental of each other. I did make a few great friends though and still hang out with my big. As for the other non-greek students that I've talked to, most of them are either indifferent to Greeks. Some of them wish they could afford it, while others simply don't care to join one because they feel it isn't necessary.

Athletics: We have amazing school spirit, student involvement, fan support, facilities, etc. Our team is (inter)nationally recognized and part of the SEC, so we are very proud of that. Even though we've had off seasons, our school still remains hopeful, loyal, and will always cheer on for our team.

Overall Experience: I love the University of Georgia. I've always wanted to come here. It is an extremely diverse school with many upsides such as there is always someone new to meet, the spirit and honor of game days, the environment, and the (inter)national recognition. I think one of the only downsides is how big and spread out the campus is. If I had to do it all over again, I'd still choose this school, but I'd change my decisions. The first two years I wasn't as involved as I'd have liked to be, so I'm making up for it now the last two years.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A number of classes have been very helpful in me determining where I would like to go with a career path. This indicates that much of what the university emphasizes is not just the grades but also the future of the student.

Campus Housing: Differs depending on where you live but typically it is very homely and can be managed. A lot of residences are fantastic otherwise.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UGA is quite a prestigious place to be at, and so I feel that a career with a UGA degree will come quickly.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Usually there's not a problem. At night, it can be a little dangerous, but other than the occasional drunk, it's fine.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: No matter where you live, each housing place will have its own perks, and there are no dorms which are terrible.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are a big part of UGA. Everyone is invested in them, and all our teams perform quite well.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, it has only been a week, but I've already learned how helpful everyone is at UGA. The staff and students are all willing to help.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I've never felt personally threatened on campus, but there have been police reports of violence from time to time. The local newspaper reported that incidence of rape on campus increases by 75% during football season.

Overall Experience: The school holds many career fairs each semester, but they are mostly attended by fast food restaurants and temp agencies. Skip these unless you see one that caters to your specific field. Career center is helpful if you don't have much experience job hunting. The school has an online job board, but word of mouth is the best way to find work.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I don't know much about greek life at UGA, except that there are loads of frats and sororities. They mostly travel in their own circles and don't mingle much socially outside of them. There are many events put on for those in Greek Life.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Support for the UGA football team is very, very strong. It's overwhelming, in fact. So, if you're not a big SEC fan, you might find that you're quite annoyed during football season. During fall, the entire town is basically obsessed with the Bulldawgs and traffic grinds to a halt as roads are closed and tailgaters abound.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: UGA has many good points and many bad ones, depending on what you're after. The chemistry department is deplorable, from the Dean on down, so take chem elsewhere if you can. Getting through any of the administrative tasks is a nightmare!

That said, there are many intelligent instructors who are honestly invested in their students' success. In the Ecology sphere, it's a tight-knit group, but very welcoming. Professors are also running their own research and NGOs in addition to their courses.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a variety of courses offered at UGA. Some of the professors are really helpful, others... not so much. It all depends on who you get.

Campus Housing: There are some REALLY good housing areas and some REALLY bad housing areas. It just depends on which one you get.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Student involvement is huge at this school along with school pride. The facilities are pretty nice.

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.
