3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For undergrad, I skipped orientation and first-year experience and was throw right in because the school that I initially wanted to go to ran out of housing. But, I learned a lot about the inner workings of their academic system. For graduate school, I utilized the connections I made throughout undergrad to get into graduate school at the same school, so I could transfer without stressing about the standardized testing requirements. I am not a good test taker, so I am glad I was able to find this loophole. My overall experience was a very informative one.

Overall Experience: It's a campus that defines the city and is near the rural area I live. I was able to commute, thus save costs, while being spared many of the traffic challenges that come with a big city. Campus is contiguous and large north to south, with some very nice areas to walk and view. While the student body is large, there are sections that operate on a smaller scale, particularly in the College I was enrolled in. Athletic events are fun, though they sometimes bring out the worst in terms of traffic and people behavior. Opportunities are available for a large variety of things from student organizations to wet-bench lab research. Most of the professors I had genuinely cared about teaching well, and some would make extra efforts to know and invest in students.

Overall Experience: From football games to cultural diversity, the only time this campus isn't bustling is finals week.

Overall Experience: I love everything about it from the social and music scene to the variety of classes as well as difficulty, and even the size, which has proven to be perfect because there's so many people to meet!

Overall Experience: My school has only one major problem: it isn't very simple, and there are a lot of hoops to be jumped through to be able to finally relax.

Overall Experience: I was waitlisted by the school I was looking forward to go to. The environment, atmosphere, location, and majors that the school I was accepted to are ok but not great. However, people only speak of good things about the school, University of Georgia, and therefore, I am looking forward to what may be a new opportunity to meet new people and experience a big change.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy going to a big SEC school. There are many opportunities! There are so many that I am ready to take on anything that I did not experience during my first year. The experiences are beyond great. You make long-lasting friendships with people and I have never been more proud of my school. Each student excels academically, but we also know how to have fun! :)

Off-Campus Housing: You end up either paying top dollar for a hole in the wall on top of campus, or going further out to pay less and get something decent with the added stress of not being able to ride UGA busses to class.

Party Scene: There are always things going on, it's never a struggle to find something to do. Rather, the problem lies in when you should just say no and stay in. Or sometimes it's hard to get all your friends to go out with you because they went out the night before and want to go out tomorrow as well... just not tonight.

Off-Campus Dining: It's your typical run of the mill town with normal restaurants. The Kroger is always slam packed... but that's to be expected.

3 College Junior

Administration: They are very helpful and keep the campus safe and the wheels turning.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I really enjoy the food and don't mind the cost, but I wish I could just swing through, grab a meal, then take it home. It's like living out in the real world and be expected to go to a full service restaurant for a sit down meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't really have that much time. When I could instead, run through, grab a sandwich and some chips, go home to my desk and eat while I study.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I was "awarded" a certain amount of financial aid however, when the costs associated with going to college at the University of Georgia did not go through my student account, a lot of my "awarded" money was taken away. My living situation was cheaper off campus however, since the charge was direct to us and not through the University, financial aid did not help.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The University of Georgia offers a wonderful atmosphere for living on campus. A really nice quality is that while typically, you share a room with a roommate, the campus offers many spaces to find solitude to study.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus makes life so much easier! Close to dorms, dining halls, and anything you'll need.

Campus Food: Food isn't bad, just gets boring after a while. Much better than other universities.

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.
