What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UGA. It is very challenging academically, but the party scene is very lively as well. I love the location; Athens is a really cute town with a lot of stuff to do. The food is awesome! The sports are a huge part of the culture of UGA, which I love. I have made so many lifelong friends and amazing memories so far at UGA.

I love the University of Georgia!! I start there in the fall but already alumni and current students have reached out to me and it is easy to get in contact with people if I ever have any questions! I have toured the university twice and both times I have felt so welcome there, I cannot wait to be a full time student there!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Georgia prominently known as Dawg Nation is the home of the Arch and Home of the late-night dining hall celebrations at Snelling that we like to call Snellabrations. UGA is not only the birthplace of public higher education but also the birthplace of calling the dawgs! GOOOOOOOOO DAWGS, SIC ‘EM, WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF! Traditions like jumping into Herty Field’s water fountain during orientation and ringing the chapel bell during times of achievement are what make the University of Georgia great. The massive campus is already alive with students taking part in hundreds of organizations, and giving their all in their sports. Football season is the time to be alive. The campus changes dramatically during football games. Everyone bleeds our school colors, red and black. The cheers from the stadium can be heard from miles away. It’s amazing to watch thousands of people gather to enjoy and have fun. One of the most reassuring things about life at UGA is the sense of belonging to a community that’s not only reserved to campus but also the surrounding town. On your journey to reaching campus, you’ll see a multitude of bulldog statues covering the whole town and campus along with logos, merch, and catchphrases. UGA is a big campus, but because of that, you’ll definitely find your people. The academics are superb. One of the requirements for each freshman is to participate in a one-credit First-Year Odyssey Seminar class which can be about anything such as learning about rebels in education to finding happiness. When it comes to the difficulty of academics you need to be prepared to work hard for your grades. Don’t let your senioritis from high school get in the way of your success in college. The housing is great especially when you know what dorm to choose. When it comes to housing with community bathrooms, Morris Hall is the best hands down due to the size of the room, and its convenient location on campus. When it comes to suite-style dorms, Oglethorpe house, in my opinion, is the best because of its location next to a dining hall and closeness to campus life. The food from all five dining halls have unique tastes to them depending on where you go. For example, Oglethorpe is the best when it comes to burgers and sandwiches. They even have their own Hole in the wall grill. Bolton is notorious for its ice cream, cookies, and Chinese food. Snelling is a 24/7 dining hall that is amazing for its late-night breakfast, pizza, and hugs and greetings from Ms. Sandra. The downfall to UGA is its terrible parking, bus limits, and diversity. You usually need a permit to park anywhere on campus. There are parking decks for visitors but you usually need to walk a while to get where you need to go. During football games, even if you do have a permit, you sometimes have to move your car to a different location depending on where it was originally. Since there are so many people on campus, the busses can get packed to the brim to the point it’s hard to breathe at times. Although they are getting better, their diversity in students isn’t as good as it could be. You could end up being the only African American in a class of thirty students. Still, they have found ways to remedy this issue by providing programs such as Daze for people of color. Regardless, the University of Georgia is the place to go. I can assure you that you’ll find a home there. As a dawg, you’ll find a place for the University of Georgia in your heart soon enough. You’ll be able to proudly say, “Home is where the Arch is.”

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a pretty chill school. The environment is very welcome (we are in the South, after all), but there have been pro-life posters set up on central campus that have had people protest them. That is not a common occurrence, but it can be shocking to see large posters with disturbing images. The professors are usually very nice, and I haven't met one that isn't understanding. My advisor from the Exploratory Center was also relatively helpful and genuinely excited when I finally settled on a major. They don't pressure us to choose as quickly as we can; they encourage us to explore our interests and help us whenever we make an appointment.

The University of Georgia is a wonderful school. The overwhelming kindness of the school and overall Athens community can make anyone feel welcomed and at home. The facilities are beautiful as well. As an art student, I could not believe how much UGA had to offer with their state-of-the-art equipment, fantastic professors, and wide variety of course offerings. I am so proud to attend such a lovely school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, UGA is a good school, that is very diverse and easy to find a group of friends. There is a community called BUGA which stands for black UGA, and is a close community of African Americas in the UGA population . This group helped me to feel welcomed, and also make me comfortable and happy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I spent the last two years of my undergraduate studies at the University of Georgia and I loved every minute of being there. My major was Human Development and Family Sciences and I absolutely loved everything about it. The classes were great, my professors were great and easily accessible, and I loved being on the campus. I did not realized until I graduated how much I loved being apart of UGA.

It's great. There are a variety of opportunities for involvement both academically and socially. There's also a place for everyone regardless of ethnicity, personality etc. everyone is welcoming and encouraging. The professors are great but there is also help readily available outside of classes. Overall an amazing school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Georgia is a university that offers a variety of opportunities for its students. No matter what you are into, there is a group or organization for you. The academics are highly regarded in many fields, which can come with many hard classes. However, this is combated with professor support during office hours and many free tutoring resources offered. Students at UGA care about their academics, and there is always a study group to be found for learning outside of the classroom. Sports are also very big at UGA and comes along with a very unique atmosphere. Whether you watch from your couch or are screaming in the stands, everyone at UGA is proud to say"go dawgs". While some may complain Athens is not a big city, it is a classic college town that allows for a combination of safety and the typical college experience. All in all, there is no where else I would rather spend my four (or maybe five or six) years of college education than at the University of Georgia.
