Transportation: While generally reliable, the buses are often late, particularly later on in theday, which can be an inconvenience if you are in a hurry to get to class. The routes the buses go cover most of the city.

Party Scene: I'm not overly fond of the nightlife, but from what I hear, it is very fun and very crazy. In addition, there are various house parties that are excellent.

Technology: There is an abundance of computers at the Zell Miller center and some of the dorms: more than enough for any time of the year.

Campus Food: It's awesome. There are a lot of dining halls and tons of options. There is always a fresh salad bar which I loved and a place to get omelets. All the dining halls are unique too which is good for variety.

Academics: I am a wildlife Biology major and, so far, I love it. This is one of the small majors at UGA with only about 150 of us. For this reason, there is a stronger sense of community between students and professors. My advisor sends out emails all the time of all the job opening across the country related to my major in order to show that there are jobs out there, and this comforts me. I am still trying to figure out where I am headed with this major but I know it will be a fulfilling career for me. I chose it because it is what I have passion for, not because it will make me rich.

Academics: Even though some classes can be intimidatingly large, there are usually tutors offered for free that can help if you get lost. I learn just as well in my big classes as my small. It all depends on how well you pay attention and study. I take advantage of my professors willingness to help me and the free tutoring here quite often. Most professors are well organized and very knowledgeable.

Parking: There is extremely limited parking at UGA and it is very pricey. It is also competitive to get a spot and I have friends that could not get one. I was able to find a spot in a church parking lot that is not affiliated with the university and I just pay a semesterly donation of my choice, which is awesome in comparison. They need to build more parking decks and lower the prices.

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life but I have friends who are. Most of them love it but a couple decided to drop out because of how fake the people are. If you are looking for a place to be involved in Greek life, I here this is an awesome place to do it though. Most of the Greek houses are beautiful and really cool and my friends that are living in them love the sense of community. I never really feel left out of things because I did not rush. Greek life is present but it does not takeover the whole school. Some people involved in Greek things do seem to judge others that are not, but that could be said for anywhere.

Administration: Campus police don't really bother you unless you are doing something blatantly out of control. If you are smart, you will be completely fine.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: If you are looking for an internship in Athens, you will definitely be able to find one. In my majors or Advertising and English they are constantly sending emails and posting flyers about opportunities. It is just up to you if you want to take advantage of these or not.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: During the summer it can be extraordinarily hot, and there is countless hills to climb to classes, which isn't a good combination. Appropriate clothing and water can solve this though, and it is only for the first couple weeks of the semester.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Scholarships are really great for in-state students: HOPE and Zell Miller save students a lot of money!

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.
