3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is just like dining everywhere else. There are Waffle Houses, IHOPs, and Choo Choos, and there are also small business restaurants. I'm on meal plan so my favorite restaurant is Le Dining Hall

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I say it's the best because I want to go into the Terry Business program. I'm hearing that it is competitive, which is definitely a concern, but it is also a great feeling to know that there's competition because competiton directly correlates with value and prestige in my opinion.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel on campus because I don't do things that place me in compromising situations. I always know where I'm going and who I'm going with, so the feeling of security that I feel is self-inflicting. Honestly, I don't see ample police officers on campus, yet i'm sure they're around somewhere, but its not the police who make me feel safe, its me knowing what i'm doing, that puts me at ease

Academics: It's great to know your major because, the sooner you know, the sooner the university start throwing connections, opportunities, open doors (literally....they'll throw open doors left and right! you'll have no choice but to get your foot in at least one of those door), and just really beneficial and helpful things at you. (I'm hoping that they start throwing some scholarships too)

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Amazing. Attaining a degree is an honor because the academics and the overall value of receiving a UGA diploma, are extremely serious, prestigious, and sacred to the members of and affiliates of UGA.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Our meal plan IS expensive, but it's impeccable as well. Cant deny that!

Local Area: I personally feel Athens, outside of the UGA perimeter, is just another world. There is a reason so many student organizations don't go far in order to try and make a difference in a community". The reason is that our locals need help! Literally, you see government housing across the street from dorms and other facilites. Parked down the local streets, are student cars whose expensive monthly payments could pay the cost of living for a local's home. I had a conversation with a 10th grade local girl when i was volunteering at a local high school and she said "you spend all your life here, knowing that you'll never make it across the street"

Scholarships: When it comes to financial aid, I feel that the process is something that only gets easier the more times you do it. The reason why I say it's bad is because I have only gone through the full process once and it was extremely hectic. This year is take two, and it's already begining a bit shakily so I'm a bit wary of the process. Also, I feel that attaining financial aid in the form of university-wide scholarships, is really difficult if you aren't a STEM major!

Diversity: Our campus really puts forth serious effort in terms of catering to , recognizing, promoting and celebrating diversity. As a university, we are doing really well with accepting diversity and making accommodation for diversity of all different genres, not just race. We cater to vegetarians, handicapped students, international students, students with language barriers, students outside the average 18-23 age group, students with disabilities, students of different sexual orientation, students on both ends of the weight spectrum, students of different ethnicities and religions, I even heard that university housing can go as far as to provide larger beds for unusually tall/large students! I can say that even though my university is predominantly white, they put in SERIOUS work in order to make everyone feel at home and included. The only reason why my rating isn't perfect is because the acceptance for diversity is very obvious amongst most faculty, staff, administrators, and other people within the university, but not so much so present in some of the students.

Campus Food: Let the big Dawg eat! The campus provides four different places to eat. The food and the service is the best.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It all depends on the professors. I would go to ratemyprofessor.com before picking a professor. The class sizes are bigger than other schools I have went to in the past.

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.
