Campus Quality: The University of Georgia requires each first year student to take a First Year Odyssey Class which is a class that teaches you about a course of your choice that may be unique or special to the University of Georgia. It is a small class tat is endearing and great.

Campus Quality: Part of your fees include a gym membership which is a great facility with lots of space and something for everyone. The dining halls, yes more than one, are great and offer a variety.

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part here on campus, but nobody treats you differently if you don't participate in that.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus police are on campus for safety. Usually there is no trouble as long as you are safe and are not putting yourself or anyone else in danger.

Drug Safety: Many people do drugs or drink alcohol but it doesn't really matter. Nobody is left out because they don't do something. The people are great here and none of this really matters.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: This is a great area to live in. The airport isn't too far away and neither is Atlanta. There is plenty of stuff to do off the campus.

Campus Housing: I love living in campus housing, the girls on my hall have become some of my best friends. There are always plenty of activities to do down in the lobby. My RA and roommate is great. I don't have any complaints.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Many frat houses have parties every weekend but people go downtown to bars almost every night of the week. There are always specials and it's a great way to make friends.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus dining is the best thing on this campus! There are plenty of dining halls and even one that is open 24/7. There are so many different food types, anything you can think of. If you are a vegetarian or allergic to something, it is no problem, there are special utensils and stuff that are used in order to satisfy your needs.

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown has so many different restaurants to choose from. There are also many chain restaurants easily accessible off the campus, but it's great to try out new things. They haven't failed me yet!

4 College Freshman

Parking: There is parking everywhere at the school and almost always easy to find a parking spot. Permit costs are a little on the expensive side, but it's worth it because if you get a ticket, those are always expensive.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students at the school are very nice and helpful. Almost everyone is in the same boat as you so they understand and just want to be friends. Usually there isn't anyone who is stuck up or just mean.

Transportation: There is no need for a car here because the buses run 24/7 with plenty of routes and plenty of stops. There are even buses that run to the grocery store and places off campus. The only need for a car would be to drive home to see your family. If you don't like the bus, then everything is easy to walk to, with sidewalks and lights everywhere.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is usually what everyone does after their freshman year. The prices are very affordable and there are different sized apartments all over the area, ranging from one bedroom to 5 bedrooms. The safety of the area is a huge deal and there are police everywhere to keep everyone safe. Transportation runs from many of the off-campus housing sites and even the school transit system will run buses out to the off-campus housing site.

Athletics: Students get free/discounted tickets for all varsity sporting events which causes the gym/field/arena to always be crowded with many fans. I have so much school spirit just like everyone else on the campus, when walking down the street 80% of people are wearing school colors. I, myself, participated in intramural sports and it was great. It was an easy way to meet people and so much fun. Many people just played to have fun and it wasn't too competitive (even though there was a championship game).

5 College Freshman

Technology: The computers at my school are great! There is a special program that deals with all the technology issues and they are always on top of things. There is wireless access almost everywhere on campus. Even though I have my own computer, I can just walk right downstairs of my dorm and use one of the computers in the computer lab. There are printers all over campus and not necessary at all to have your own computer. It is a fairly reasonable price to print and I use them all the time.

3 College Student

Campus Food: There are very few vegetarian options so it has been challenging for me as a vegetarian because the menu does get boring after a while. The other options seem to rotate more frequently though and the one dining hall that's open 24/7 is really great

Technology: You have to pay to print anywhere on campus but it isn't that expensive. The computers they have are mostly very new, the laptops that they loan out aren't amazing but they get the job done

4 College Student

Majors: It's not hard to get into and get started right away and the advisers are very helpful

Majors: The workload isn't crazy and I enjoy it very much. I don't often find myself with busy work and I can see the purpose of the things that they have me do.

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.
