Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at the University of Georgia. As an undergraduate student majoring in Management Information Systems, the Terry College of Business provided multiple avenues and events to get connected to professionals in my field. In addition, the majority of my professors were very approachable and took an active interest in their students, not only in their classroom achievements, but also in their post-graduation success as well. The campus has tons of student organizations to get involved in for whatever your interests may be. There are also ample opportunities to work on campus whether it be in the dining halls, as a resident assistant, serving as a tour guide for UGA, or even as a bus driver. You read that right, students can drive the campus transit buses! For those who are big sports fans, watching the Dawgs play football on Saturday afternoons in Sanford Stadium is hard to beat. Go DAWGS!

I recently read that the UGA endowment has crossed the one billion dollar mark. Has that increase in funding helped me with my student debt? Nope. Has the biology department that I studied in seen any improvements in its facilities? Not that I'm aware of. Where is all this money going? I do know that the new head coach for the football team is receiving over 3 million dollars annually and that college administrator pay continue to rise substantially while the average professor's salary remains virtually unchanged. Moreover, the list of impressive sounding administrator jobs continues to increase with titles like "Dean of", "Chief Officer of", and "Executive" and so on. The dingy old labs of the chemistry and biology departments receive the occasional and obligatory touch-ups. That is to say that we see a new computer or a new coat of paint once in a while. Meanwhile, Sanford stadium is a polished and state-of-the art beacon of Athens pride. Come on UGA, get your priorities straight!

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.
