I went to the UGA campus as part of a summer veterinary program. Athens itself is a beautiful town, and the campus is no exception. I went on tours of both their former veterinary college as well as the new one. The former was very large and still had many of its facilities being used by professionals. The newer facility was amazing beyond compare. The machinery they were using to treat animals was better than some of the ones in human hospitals! The admissions team and alumni were also extremely friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend UGA to anyone interested in the veterinary field or just medicine in general.

UGA gets 4 stars because, back in the early 2000s, that school gave me the classic college experience: gorgeous campus, a ton of students of all types (ranging from the stereotypical greeks, nerds, the achingly shy, geeks, huge jocks, literary aces, hippies with a philosophic bent, etc), hilariously drunken parties, art shows put on by grad students ... all of this happening in a small southern city.

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.
