Overall Experience: I've had one of the best experiences at UGA. I would classify myself to be heavily on the introverted side before college. By the time I graduated, I was served as President for two MAJOR organizations, held an average of 2 executive board membership per organization I was involved with and maintained two jobs while going to school full time. I had a full load on my plate, but I never felt stressed and had a great work/life balance. I graduated in 4 years and got a rock solid job offer right out of college. Georgia prides itself of offering multiple opportunities for students to get involved. Students I would say can fairly easily manage their schedules and their is a motivation to perform well.

Athletics: UGA has one of the best fan bases in the country. Being a top-tier SEC school, the football team garners interest from majority of the state as well as from neighboring ones. Georgia has been consistently pre-ranked in the Top 25 prior to season start. UGA takes it's football program very seriously as their are several opportunities for students to show their spirit. Walking around campus you can feel the spirit for the team as every other student has some sort of Georgia apparel on.

Overall Experience: this school doesn't promote major programs until you get into that major, currently I want to be a business major, but I have to wait till I get into terry to get any of my major's courses. it is just inconvenient

Campus Housing: Depending on what dorm you choose, your experience is different. Freshman dorm are kinda busy, but connection are easily made. Upper-class man dorm are kinda quite and not that sociable. It depends on what you want your college experience are. Check out the opinions of the second years at the college, they can tell you the experience of what it was like last year.

Greek Life: What can I say, Greek life is different for almost everyone, go experience.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: It's given the most funds towards in term of equipment and resources.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a very demanding adjustment. Many of the people are nice, but they don't rally get straight to the point. Classes are hard to find and usually the housing is full. It might seem like a lot of people will help you get more connections, but most people have their own groups and the campus is wide so it's hard to connect with people, if your in the wrong dorms.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The staff seem to be present at all times. They were very helpful when my car wouldn't start one night.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have gotten help in the area of my study. The support is available from so many sources if you just ask questions. You have to get engaged with others. Never believe that something is impossible. I would recommend this setting for anyone really serious about their studies.

Campus Housing: It seems very safe. My mom don't worry about me as much as she would if I was off campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I have not participated in Greek lifestyle very much since I am actively involved in other activities. In addition my major and future expirations prohibit serious Greek participation.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The school spirit is the best. Everyone wears the pride of the teams whether you know everyone on the team of not. Even if you don't know all the rules of the game you are proud to be a bulldawg.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This experience has been more than expected. I assumed that since it is a large school, having personable and intimate social relationship wouldn't be possible. I have had just the opposite. I am taking advantage of everything I possibly can.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, but I feel safer when I'm in my house off campus.

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.
