Health & Safety: Sexual assault is a serious problem everywhere, in general, and in all cases, no matter how often or how it happens.

Overall Experience: Most students go on to find a job or more schooling.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, UGA is a great school. I highly suggest considering it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is just as you would expect it to be. There are some nicer options but usually it is the typical dorm.

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of campus. However, you do not have to be part of it to fit in. UGA is so big so there is something for everyone.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Being a Dawg is amazing, and that includes the athletics. When you go to an event you really feel like part of the Dawg Nation.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UGA is the best school I could have chosen. There is a place for everyone and something to get involved in all the time.

Health & Safety: On UGA's campus, I feel very safe. I have no fear of walking alone around the heart of campus. However, downtown Athens is saturated with homeless people who are often aggressive in approaching people to beg for food or money. Therefore, it is not smart to leave the heart of campus to walk around by yourself. Even still, the UGA Police have a great presence that makes me feel safer.

Overall Experience: There are a wide range of options for courses to take, and the professors are generally well-informed. There are a few TAs who should not be teaching, but that is common at any school. Class sizes are well-balanced. I have had a few large, lecture hall classes, but there are many smaller classes as well. For example, the class required for all freshmen (First Year Odyssey) offers a great opportunity to meet people and professors in a smaller setting.

Overall Experience: The Terry College of Business graduates students with degrees of high value. Terry College representatives bring in employers and recruiters on campus weekly (if not daily) to teach students business etiquette and to inform them of job and internship opportunities. Also, the career center is very helpful with critiquing resumes, and they offer an "Arch-Ready Certificate" that helps ensure students are prepared to enter the business world. UGA makes finding post-college jobs easier.

Campus Housing: Lipscomb Hall is, by far, the best dorm to live in. There is a great sense of community within the hall, and the location of the hall is perfect. Lipscomb is right next to the main dining hall (Bolton). The dorms are older and not perfectly clean, but considering the way most dorms are, the dorms at UGA are pretty average.

Greek Life: If Greek life did not exist on campus, students would befriend a greater variety of peers, and there would be a heightened sense of community. Greek life divides students by segregating "Greeks" and "Non-Greeks." UGA in particular is not the worst about supporting stereotypical Greek life, but the division is definitely present.

Overall Experience: The University of Georgia offers numerous extracurricular engagements and activities that keep students engaged. The Redcoat Marching Band in particular is a wonderful program that enables students to support the football team and school in general. Classes challenge students, and the honors program offers many unique opportunities from honors classes to lunchbox lectures to special events. The general environment at UGA is inviting and respectful to a diverse group of students.

Health & Safety: There are some issues with crime and safety measures, but for the most part I believe that it is primarily a lack of student respect for others/property.

Overall Experience: Although a degree in certain fields wouldn't be comparable to that of other schools, it holds a great deal of potential that I hope to maximize to the fullest possibilities.

Campus Housing: I live in one of the oldest dorms on campus but the rooms are so small. The socialness of it is great but it isn't super convenient in relation to the rest of campus.

Greek Life: As a Greek myself, there do seem to be cliques; however, many Greeks are friends with non-Greeks and all Greeks are required to participate in activities outside of the Greek system, whether philanthropic or just of student interest.

Athletics: There are so many students that support one another whether it is at varsity sport games or club sport games. UGA is an extremely active student body and I think that it is apparent on and off the pitch.

Overall Experience: UGA has been so welcoming and accommodating to me as an international student!! I love, love, love it here - the people, the atmosphere, the classes, the campus; it is all amazing and I think is the perfect fit.

Health & Safety: I think UGA itself is pretty safe. However, going out in Athens, should be done carefully and with other people.

Overall Experience: For the majority, the professors here are great, and they are passionate about what they are teaching. I have, however, had a couple teachers that didn't seem to care anything about their students or couldn't teach to save their life.

Campus Housing: The dorms at UGA desperately need to be updated. The newest dorms are located all the way in East campus, which is rather inconvenient for most classes freshmen have.

Greek Life: Greek Life is great, but even if it isn't your thing, there are so many ways to get involved at UGA that it really doesn't matter. Everyone can find their niche.

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.
