4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of my best memories have been made in college. I met amazing friends, attended football games, and really found my niche. The only bad thing I've encountered was the original department I was in, but I resolved that by switching majors.

Overall Experience: I love this school. The atmosphere is great, our reputation is a decent balance of grades and fun, and the campus gives you a great workout. You can have an awesome time whether you are into going downtown into the wee hours of the night, or helping the community through club efforts and donated time. Georgia has something for everyone. I suppose the only reason I am feeling skeptical about it now is that I am stressed about paying for it. My parents were strongly against me going away for financial reasons, as I have to pay for it all myself. Since their worries came true, it has me wondering if all of the glitz and glamour are worth paying for when you have to come up with the money alone, at least for the first two years.

Overall Experience: I love the feel of the town UGA is in. Athens is definitely a college town. The school has so many clubs and opportunities to get involved on campus. My favorite experiences include football games, $1 movies at the student center, and dawgs after dark events. I would definitely choose UGA if I had to do it all over.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: University of Georgia has been amazing! Athens is the ultimate college town - live music, great night life, and so much history. The classes are challenging but teachers and students are always willing to help other students out. I have made a ton of friends but everyone is so different, which makes college great. I have been exposed to so many new and exciting activities!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a great time at UGA. I was unsure of how I would like the school considering that I came from a very small high school. I met the most insane but awesome friends. From freshman year to senior year, we've been really close. No matter what, you can find people that match your rhythm at UGA!

Overall Experience: I go the University of Georgia, and I really like it. It has a good atmosphere. I felt welcomed by the school since orientation before school even started. Once I got to campus, I felt like most everyone was nice and friendly. The school has so many helpful programs and resources to offer.

Overall Experience: I love experiencing the traditional college atmosphere at a large school. The HOPE scholarship was and would be the largest influence on making my final decision.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a fantastic time in my school. I was a member of the Band, which allowed for much travel and many new friends. They treat each student very well, even though it is a VERY large school. I would choose the school every time, not simply because it is close to home, but because the atmosphere at the school seems to be very familial. When you're in your program, in my case Music, everyone gets to know each other, and every one is willing to help whenever needed. The only issue with my school is the students fees go up a large sum every year, which isn't expected when I start getting money together for school. They tell us what the fees are for, green fees, athletic fees, transportation fees, but I wish I knew if this is really where it went to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although I have not technically begun college yet, I have experienced a lot through the University of Georgia which just allows me to forsee all of the opportunities I will have once the fall semester begins. I so far have taken part in a First Look program last fall as well as my orientation program in mid July. Both of these events allowed me to see what this school is all about, meet some amazing people, and start some great experiences. I cannot wait to continue my adventure this far and build my experiences from this wonderful university.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many resources at my current school to assist in learning and social life. At times it can be dodfixult to balance both due to the work load and demanding classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school offers opportunities for transfer students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was initially worried that UGA would be too big and overwhelming, but I never felt that way. Living on campus helped me feel like a part of the freshman community, and I recognized people who shared multiple classes with me. At football games (the highlight of fall semester), despite being just one of 90,000 fans in the stadium, I felt an overwhelming sense of pride for my school and I grasped what I had really become a part of: the UGA family.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the University of Georgia and would not have chosen another school! I have always dreamed of being at UGA and could not see myself anywhere else. Game days, and being in the south makes the school the most memorable times that make the school that much more special to me. Until you are a DAWG you will not understand the true love you have for the Athens life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wasn't at first extremely interested in the University of Georgia because I didn't really know much about it and didn't really research colleges much like most people do. I like the size of the campus since there are so many things to do and so many different people to get to know that I was quickly able to fit in and find a place. I'm sure I could adapt to most other colleges too, but I don't regret this choice at all.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Definitely what you make of it, there are a lot of majors to choose from and incredible professors, you just have to put in the time and effort.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UGA is truly the best school out there. The academics are superb, and the atmosphere can't be beat.

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.
