Majors: Apply! The state of Georgia is always in need of certified teachers, especially in technical areas like agriculture.

Majors: More Hands on Needed, Less Education in Agriculture Education – I think that more hands on courses should be required for an Agriculture Education degree. The first day I walked in the school greenhouse, I didn't even know how to turn on the water!

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Good Instructors, Limited Online Programs – I wish that more online graduate programs were offered by the University of Georgia.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Good Systems Can Always Be Improved – I feel that the information on Graduate school tuition is a little fuzzy. A more clear tuition schedule needs to be created. I would also like to see an exemption form or tab on the website. Graduate students who are completing their degree totally online should be exempt from certain fees.

Administration: The main strict policy that we have that i know of is the academic policy. It's basically to not cheat. There's also academic probation for students who aren't meeting the grades. As far as our social lives, the school itself doesn't seem to get involved unless a student gets arrested for something.

Local Area: Always Something to Do – At uga there's so many activities for you to get involved in. You can be a part of any club you want or be a part of an intramural team sport. You could also take recreational classes such as singing or dancing. There's also lots of nice places to eat and there's so many people you get to know while attending this college. It's been the best 4 years of my life.

Diversity: Poor Integration of LGBT Students – There is one official club on campus for LGBT students. It lacks structure and organization, as well as the funds necessary to achieve the club's primary goals. LAMBDA hopes to promote awareness and recognition of LGBT issues, but the low-budget events and lack of support creates an image other students cannot take seriously.

Campus Housing: Upperclassmen Dorms Are Really Nice – The apartment-style housing of East Campus Village are definitely something to look forward to should you choose to stay on campus. They're are a little more expensive, but have a very nice set up and very close to the gym and and my favorite dining hall on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Athens Is the Place to Be – There are nothing but restaurants and boutiques in downtown Athens. There are so many placed to eat. Taste of India is my favorite restaurant. They serve nothing but Indian food and I didn't really like Indian food at first, but it's really good. I prefer the butter chicken with Naan and a mango lussi.

Technology: The Internet Network Is Sometimes Unresponsive – The wireless networks is constantly unresponsive sometimes. It gets really frustrating having to reconnect. The price for printing is about average. It makes you limit what you print of course which is the point, but the things that do need printing won't break your back in costs.

Health & Safety: I Feel Safe – I feel safe when I roam campus after late night classes. The bus system stays running after all classes are out. Last semester, I had a class that let out around 8pm and I had no problem catching a bus. Even when I wanted to walk to my car, I felt safe.

Campus Quality: "This Is Not for Me" Is Not an Excuse – UGA has a student body that bonds over football and student activities. Even if you are a new student, which I was last year, you will automatically feel accepted once you show your school spirit. UGA holds a of pride in its athletics. Once you share that pride, you become apart of something that no other school can offer.

Campus Quality: UGA has an extreme sense of tradition amongst its students. It is felt wherever you go around campus. We have activities everyday on campus, therefore one could never be bored, especially during football season!

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Hot Girls & Guys – There are plenty of attractive girls and guys on campus. You won't have to look hard.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Total Safety – Not only does Athens have the Athens-Clakre county police, but UGA has their own police force as well. There are always cops roaming everywhere making sure everything is safe. IF there is something to worry about, they send you a text message and e-mail. I have never felt uncomfortable or unsafe on campus!

Campus Food: TONS OF CHOICES! We have four dining halls on campus! They are located on different parts of campus so everyone has easy access to at least one or two of them! The food is delicious. There is always a HUGE variety! The dining halls can become very crowded at times during the normal hours of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Best food anywhere! The absolute best part about it all is they are open 24/7!

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments/Housing Go Quickly – Because there are so many students and people that live in Athens, it may be hard to find an apartment/house if you wait too late. Most students start the process about February for an apartment for the next school year. There is TONS of different options that range in price. Some are very good prices and some are very expensive. You just have to find the right place for you.

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Athens – Downtown Athens has some of the greatest restaurants I have ever been to. It is right off of north campus. It is in great walking distances from all of the freshman dorms!There are many different types of food to choose from. Anything you could ever want would be found downtown. The atmosphere at most of the restaurants are super laid back and have a great feel to them. The prices are not outrageous. There are a few expensive places, but they are well worth the money.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms look amazing and are centered in the middle of campus so that everything is convenient. Also the food is the best! We are known for it!

Greek Life: Greeks Don't Dominate but They Have They're Perks! Greek parties re amazing and if you are greek you get in for free or with a discount. They stay in HUGE mansions that one could only dream of living in. The down side is that some people judge you by the sorority or fraternity you choose to join.

1 College Junior

Diversity: White Majority – There are many people of different races however the number is low. Also they are not represented fairly amongst the student body.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Responsive Staff, Decently Priced, Convenient – I live in Family and Graduate Housing. For what is officially a one bedroom apartment with a study and full kitchen (really a two bedroom), I pay $715 a month. That includes cable, water, local phone service, garbage/recycling, and fast Internet. I have a campus bus stop a short walk away. The staff is good about addressing questions and filling maintenance requests. The only problem I have is that we can't have pets, not even for a fee.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pretty Diverse – While the campus is no doubt majority-white, seemingly every race is represented in respectable numbers. There are many international students (most seem to be from Asian countries). No political party or ideology has an absolute majority: there are liberals and conservatives of varying degrees, moderates, Libertarians, Democrats, Greens, Republicans, and plenty who just don't follow politics.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Decent Quality, Okay Prices – It can be hit or miss. Larry's is pretty good, but Barberitos is bland and overpriced. The pre-made subs, wraps, and chili is good.

4 College Junior

Weather: True to expectations, it's largely warm, sunny and clear almost all-year-round. There are occasional rainstorms which might inconvenience those who don't carry umbrellas, and the heat in September-October can vary, but other than that it's pleasant weather.

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.
