This is where you will meet plenty of people with different interests. Learn to have fun while studying is the key to an amazing college life at UGA. The professors are usually always available for questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Peers tutors are also a common thing
It is an amazing school and I love the environment it has. The campus is beautiful and there are plentiful places that the student body can study, meet up, go out to eat, and just have fun. The student body is very kind and accepting and very involved in everything. There are opportunities for everyone to get involved and make friends.
The administration and professors are unqualified and racist. Many of the professors are students who do not know the information. I was called “aggressive” when I professionally asked to see the answers I missed on a test. Many hate crimes have happened on campus by fraternities and when reported, the fraternities were not punished. There are many sexual assault cases that are covered up and the victim is usually punished harder that the assaulter. The chemistry department is failing and there are only two professors to each the entire freshman chemistry class.
I love it here because it provides the perfect amount of academic challenge and opportunities for my career paths. In addition, the town of Athens is a great place to call home for over four years. I love this university so much that I am coming back next year for my master's! Go Dawgs!
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Georgia is 53%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Get plugged in as soon as possible. No matter how small or big the school may be, there are always opportunities for new students to get involved. When you do, you'll find you can make some lifelong friendships.
Very focused and driven people that know what they desire in the future and strive to achieve nothing but the best.
I guess if I have to describe The Univeristy of Georgia, I would say that honestly it is overwhelming and huge and honestly sorta scary but once you get comfortable and meet new people, join clubs and groups you really get to experience UGA for the amazing school it is, it just takes time.
The best thing about UGA is that there are so many different things you can get involved in, both academically and socially. The extracurricular activities featured here are limitless, and there is something here that every single person can enjoy. Whether you like playing chess, volunteering, playing intramural sports, or being in a social sorority, there is a chance for everyone to get plugged in.
The students are party all the time. Classooms are filthy. Classes are too large. Hard to get ahold of professors after class.
Read what the professors tell you to read. Doing the assignments and homework are the best ways to prepare for exams.
Athens is definitely a college town. The stores, restaurants, and everything downtown Athens caters to the students! UGA also has HUGE fan base. On game days, there are flocks of people taking up any empty space on campus to pregame, barbecue, and etc. There are all kinds of people that show up and all kinds of ages - from babies to old alumni .
It is a good mix of academic and social experiences. The quality of academics is very high, but the campus is relaxed and there are many opportunities to explore social life. Also, there are many opportunities to explore career interests.
People who think they do not have to study or put in time for their major should not attend this school. If someone does not want to have a social life, that is fine, but be considerate of other students who are trying to enjoy life while at college.
They're complete dicks about getting financial aid, and, if you do get it, they take as much of it as they can, leaving you with absolutely zip.
Academics are tough, depending on the class and level you take. During midterms and finals, students take up all the spots in the learning center and study lounges. However, people always make time with their organizations and going out, so the curriculum is definitely doable.
The high stress levels.
University of Georgia is best known for it's diversity in population, the huge selection of classes and majors. There isn't just one specialty at UGA as it is not focused on one type of field, such as engineering. The football team is nationally known and the games are well attended. The stadium, classrooms and common rooms are user friendly and modern.
Probably Greek life is the most popular group. Student activities are going on every day/night and there is something for everyone.
The food is TO DIE FOR. Bolton is one of a kind, but the other three are top-notch too. I never get bored. I'm genuinely going to miss being on meal-plan and when I get in an apartment of my own, I might go back on meal-plan and save myself the trouble of shopping and cooking for myself. It's too good not to pass up!
Also, everyone is so in love with the University of Georgia. "There is no tradition more worthy of envy. No institution worthy of such loyalty as the University of Georgia."
Partyers? Frat boys and sorority girls? Very accurate. There's lots of drinking downtown at bars, and there's a big Greek society in Athens, but it's not limited to just those types of people.
Almost everyone is from Georgia and they're all southern hicks. The Greek community is not very smart as a general rule.
Most of the girls dress alike..leggings, boots and tunics in winter and shorts, oversized t-shirts and running shoes in the summer. Yes, it's accurate!
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)!
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.
