Drug Safety: I was not exposed much to the drug scene at UGA. I know that alcohol is a really big deal in the town though. Many people consider Athens, GA infamous for the downtown scene. It was not something that I ever got too involved with although I know many people who did.

Academics: I am very satisfied with the Communication Sciences and Disorders (CMSD) program at UGA. I have learned so much being a member of my cohort. The professors are AWESOME!! They use personal experiences in the field to teach and prepare you to enter it. I would recommend this program to anyone!

Academics: I was very impressed with the academic caliber at the University of Georgia. I always had amazing professors who were willing to help you even if it was a large lecture class. I always felt like the course work was challenging but still reasonable.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different fast food restaurants near the campus- In addition, many deliver, which makes it efficient and accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My Hope Scholarship (Specific to the state of Georgia) went through late for some reason, and my school threatened to withdraw me from school for an overdue student account. My advice would be to stay diligent and on top of your financial aid. I would advise not being being lazy and waiting around.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different apartment complexes. They are alike, with the exception of a few nicer places I've seen.

Campus Housing: There is no such thing as perfect. There is always room for improvement

Off-Campus Dining: As a vegan, the options are not as satisfying as expected. To the nonveggie community, however, Athens offers a wide variety of food options that for the most part are quite reasonably priced. The top of north campus directly coincides with Broad Street and the start of downtown Athens. Some restaurant types include mexican, italian, pizza parlors, and other various "college foods." Also, UGA works with local businesses/ restaurants and has an online site allowing students to order and pay for delivery. This is especially convenient during weekends, finals and holidays when the dinning halls are closed.

4 College Junior

Transportation: UGA has eight buses, I believe, as well as the Athens city buses, which run at intervals of about 15 minutes during the work week. The UGA buses are moderately used, but can become very crowded on rainy days and at certain stops (i.e. on Sanford in front of the Tate center). The only part of campus that is not completely reachable by buses, is the further parts of east/ south campus. All of North campus is covered. The city buses drive through most of campus and is free to students so long as they have their student ID on them.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Varsity sports is a big part of the school. The Ramsey center is one of the best gyms in the nation

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I do not feel unsafe at the University of Georgia. Police are all over campus and there is rarely a threat of danger.

Guys & Girls: The guys all seem pretty down to earth. You have a variety of them on campus. For example, you have the nerdy, preppy, fratty, and jocks all in the same University. There really aren't that many conflicts that arise with guys at school. Everyone usually gets along well from my knowledge.

Academics: I love being in the Terry College of Business. There are so many great networking, study-abroad, and job opportunities. The business school has many great alumni that are willing to help recent graduates get jobs. The teachers in the business school are top notch and have been known to win many awards throughout the school.

4 College Senior

Academics: The University of Georgia is re-known for its academics. It is ranked number 16th of the top public university list by forbes. We have a phenomenal business and journalism school that is ranked high in Consumer Reports. The other colleges within UGA have an intellectual group of faculty and staff that helps students achieve their academic goals on a day-to-day basis.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: There are a variety of nightclubs for students. Music is very diverse and there's a place to go for everyone with different tastes. The guy to girl ratio is kind of bad, but other than that the nightlife is pretty good.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: UGA is all about creating spaces for students to gather. There is plenty of green spaces to just sit down, relax, study, whatever. A common hangout spot on campus is the SLC (MLC) or Tate.Theres everything in these two buildings and they conveniently are located across from each other. A lot of classes are held in the SLC which is where people gather to study and hang out and just across the way you can grab a bite at one of the many food spots.

5 College Junior

Local Area: If you can think of it, Athens probably has it. Clubs, dining, theaters, music, movies, zoo,shopping, etc. Downtown is usually always busy, but come the weekends it is packed. No matter what you and your friends are into, im sure you can find it here. There is honestly never a dull moment in this town.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: There's not much you can't love. The campus is so pretty, there is always something to see or do. I can't speak for other academic programs, but SPIA is amazing. I love the school, the advisors, the professors and the classes.

5 College Junior

Administration: As long as you mind your own business and keep out of trouble you wont have problems. The police aren't harassing or bothersome. The campus is amazing. There really isnt any school policies that are really strict, grades are just really important. Other than that, you can really get away with a lot.

5 College Senior

Majors: I have wonderful professors and advisors in the area of sociology! They are always eager to help. I would not change a single thing.

4 College Senior

Academics: The university has a pretty rigorous curriculum. Be prepared to study A LOT!

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Alcohol is going to be present on any college campus, but the University Police Department does a very good job controlling it.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I have been blessed with the opportunity to participate in the local sorority Xi Delta. It has been the most wonderful experience I could imagine. I have made friends that I will have for a lifetime. There will always be people who view Greek life as a bad thing, but I have had only good things happen. It has brought me to my sisters, and out of my shy personality.

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.
