Off-Campus Dining: Pretty good local restaurants, not too many chain restaurants in Athens.

Party Scene: If you like to drink, your going to have a good time. Join a club if your having trouble finding friends.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The girls are hot. Most guys are goons that couldn't find a social life without being in a fraternity. Being in a fraternity definitely helps with getting girls, but if you have any game go downtown and you'll get some action.

Health & Safety: The mere size of the campus makes it difficult to make area safe. Use common sense and you'll be fine.

4 College Junior

Administration: Don't mess with cops here they will have no mercy. Steer clear.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Great restaurant, music and bar scene.

Campus Housing: Dorms are small, but thats typical for living in the dorms/

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I believe advisors are very good at helping you find a major. While I have not applied to get into my major program yet, I believe I will be very prepared. I am in my pre-requisite classes for applying to the Terry College of Business now, and I believe those classes are preparing me greatly for Terry as well as getting me very excited to be a part of the college.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I absolutely LOVE the business program. I am only in the pre-requisites but I love my classes so much. They are so applicable to the real world, and I feel as if all the knowledge I am learning is going to directly help me in the working world some day. They have an abundance of opportunities to meet with employers and connections, as well as internship opportunities very frequently. I believe the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia is one of the best business programs there is.

Local Area: Athens is an incredible place with something for any and everyone. There is a strong community atmosphere, many church communities, a great farmer's market, a wonderful YMCA, a great downtown scene as well as GREAT local music and art. I love Athens!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus is relatively lenient on most things other than parking. The campus is extremely strict about parking and you will most likely get a ticket if you park out of place.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is so much cheaper than living in the dorms, and being able to live in an apartment/house is so nice.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I am not interested really in going downtown, but the phi slam parties and all the events they host are always incredible. I love that this school is so diverse with not only the downtown scene, but a great dry-event scene as well.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Athens is very much a college town. There are plenty of things to do around here for students whether that be service projects or going downtown to hangout with friends on the weekend.

Athletics: School spirit is huge on campus. Everyone is a huge supporter of our teams and clubs. We love anything and everything that has to do with our school. Club sports are a little overshadowed by varsity sports but they are still a big hit and many people participate in them.

Diversity: I go to a very diverse school. There is a great ethnic/racial diversity. Everyone seems to accept everyone. I love it because it adds character to the school. Religion is also pretty wide spread which makes topics of conversation very interesting and engaging.

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at my school. There is a whole street dedicated to greek housing. I think Greek students are probably very nice, but it's the atmosphere that they create when non-greeks are around that make us view them differently.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls at my school seem to really be into their appearance. The greek life is huge and those are the people that I mainly see walking around campus. They basically all wear the same thing, do the same thing, and live the same lifestyle.

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.
