Visiting the University of Georgia was incredible! The campus is absolutely stunning, with its old buildings and lots of trees. I felt like I belonged there as soon as I arrived. The academic programs are amazing. They have so many different things to study, and the teachers really care about the students. Plus, there are tons of clubs and activities to get involved in outside of class. The people at UGA are so friendly, and I loved meeting students from all over the world. It feels like a place where everyone can be themselves and find their place. Overall, UGA just feels like home to me. It's not just about getting a degree; it's about finding a community and having fun while learning.

I think it is a well-rounded school that has a decent balance of academic and social life. The bulldogs are a very fun culture to witness and be a part of because there is a large sense of belonging for everyone no matter what major or what interests they may have.

  20. Tell us about the sports scene on campus.

    The sports scene is HUGE at the University of Georgia. If you don't bleed red and black, go home! Football is an epic experience here. Have fun in Sanford Stadium with nearly 93,000 of your fellow fans and watch the Bulldogs play. Gooooooooooo DAWGS! Everyone loves saturdays. It is certainly an awesome experience every Fall semester. Basketball is also an awesome sport to watch, whether it be the Men's team or the LadyDawgs. Stegemann Coliseum was just renovated and it is a sweet facility. Other sports that are fun to watch but are less popular: volleyball, tennis, swim-team, and don't forget the Gym Dogs (gymnastics)!

  21. What are your classes like?

    This semester, my classes really weren't that difficult. I thought my AP classes in high school were a lot harder. I took English, Spanish, Math Modeling, Geography, and a seminar on the role of sex in advertising. Breaking down each class- English1102: There was not that much work to do in the class (read a few stories and only wrote 3 essays) but the papers were graded much harder than what I was used to. Spanish 1101: This class was reallllllly easy. The only downside is that there is a strict attendance policy. Math 1101: I thought this class was super easy but I've heard of others who thought otherwise. In my class, the quizzes were open note, open book, and open person. The tests were identical to the quizzes but you had to do them without the help of anyone or anything. I never did the homework but still did well in the class. Geography 1125: This was my hardest class. The content was interesting but there were only 2 tests so it was hard to remember everything when exam time came around. FYOS Sex in Advertising: This class was extremely interesting and very easy. There were no tests.
