Parking: If you live off campus, either register for a parking permit in advance, or plan on riding the city bus. The city bus really isnt bad though. Its just a bunch of other students that live off campus too. If you live on campus and you want your car, plan on registering for a parking permit or else youll have no where to park it.

Administration: Overall, UGA has been super relaxed in my opinion. The campus police and Athens police are really chill about all the underage kids downtown every weekend. My roommate last year got caught drinking in our dorm and nothing happened.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: When I was a freshman, I lived in Creswell (one of the freshman highrises). The bathrooms were clean, but the showers were usually broken on my floor. The RA was a pain. The fire alarm also went off in there like 12 times that year. The only advantages of Creswell were that it was right next to the bus stop and next to Bolton dining hall. I would suggest Oglethorpe House though.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: It is mostly sunny, but not too hot. It rarely snows, so that isn't an issue either.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Athens is a good college town. It has alot to offer college students as far as work and social activity.

Transportation: No cost, always on time, essential if you live off campus.

4 College Junior

Majors: There are plenty of Majors and Programs you can sign up at UGA. I've changed majors a few times and finally found what I loved. The program is definitely helps you achieve your degree and career

4 College Junior

Academics: Very Challenging – When I entered UGA I thought it would be simple like high school. I guessed wrong. Even though you were the top of your class in high school, at UGA, you're going against the top of every high school in America. Push to be the best is hard but with all the help it makes the classes easy.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Ramsey is definitely the best gym I've been too. It provides all sorts of classes, from swimming to martial arts, and updated equipment to get in shape.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are UGA police along with Athens police patrolling around the campus. UGA email provides a connection with police to update of crimes or activites happening

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is a definite experience needed. Freshmen are required to dorm. All the Resident Assistants are cool with their hallmates and provides plenty of social activites.

4 College Junior

Transportation: UGA has it's own bus system that takes you anywhere on campus. Along with the UGA bus system, there's also a Athens Transit Bus System that take s you mostly around everywhere around the Athens community.

4 College Junior

Weather: Weather in Athens is pretty good. Summer-Fall semester goes from hot to pretty cool so a light jacket and an occasional umbrella would be needed. During the Winter-Spring semester, a jacket would be recommended until spring where you can where shorts and a shirt.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everything revolves around our athletics, mainly football. UGA is known for it's awesome football team and Saturdays in Athens.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have a 3 layer gym with everything from dance class to swim classes. You can also free lance workout because we have state of the art machines and, weights, and balls. We also have upgraded utilities. Our student learning center (MLC/SLC) is the perfect place to study and meet with groups. We have a lot of private group rooms with sound proof walls and windows, and we also have a level where you can go get coffee and sit down and eat.I believe there are about 4 or 5 levels to this building. UGA's dining halls are also very comfortable and spacious with some of the best food and food choices offered at Universities.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The atmosphere alone gives the ultimate college experience. UGA's campus will bring you out of social awkwardness because there is something for everyone there from clubs to classes. The night life is also very fun once you meet a lot of people. There are more things to do then just party here. You could go to restaurants, go bowling, go to the movies, or just have a walk out on the town. Our study facilities and tutors are also up to par with the teaching in the classrooms. There are free tutors also. There is not a reason you should not be making good grades at UGA unless you have poor time management...oh and unless you're taking OCHEM.

Party Scene: Basically nightlife at UGA is mainly downtown. I would not recommend parties with alcohol on campus for obvious reasons. Cabs are expensive. Many people get sloppy drunk and the police are always looking for them. I would not go downtown it's just not worth the risk.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus buses are often crowed during classes changes. Students only have to swipe their uga id to ride the city bus ( because the city bus is included in the transportation fee students are already charged). The cost is ok considering the number of buses running everyday ( they usually come every 10 to 15 minutes).

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's is pretty easy to find off campus housing at the University of Georgia it's timing thats the hard part. There are many options but most of them ( the decent and best ones) are usually taken by early January. If you don't have people that your willing to live with, who are also able and willing to pay rent you should just sign up for on campus housing for the next academic year so that you don't end up on the street. I know that on campus housing is way more expensive but if you don't jump on off campus housing early it pretty hard to find it later. All in all start looking before the end of fall semester your freshmen year( because of the first year live on-campus requirement) if you want one of the decent apartments.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: For an in-state student, UGA is very affordable and there are a fair number of scholarships. Dorming and the dining halls are the main things you would have to worry about. I have yet to have trouble with financial aid and everything is organized on an account that you can access online and you are constantly updated via email about any changes.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: UGA dining halls are among the top in the nation and has won multiple awards. There are many different types of food all of which are quality. There are some dining halls that are better than others-- Bolton, the dining hall under Creswell is the worst.

Local Area: The atmosphere of UGA is easily one of the most lively atmospheres I've ever experienced. The people are genuinely kind and friendly and there is always something to do.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of UGA's social scene and there is always something going on.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A decent amount of students do drugs, primarily smoking marijuana, but very small amount that do hard drugs.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: If you look at the campus as a whole, the majority is white. But you can still find the diveristy of personalities, beliefis, backgrounds, sexual orientation, etc. on the campus. I worried about the lack of diversity UGA seemed to have, but I ended up finding my own niche of diveristy within the huge campus. The diveristy will find you, if you're willing.

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.
