My opinion on West Georgia is good, I enjoy the environment. The classes and the professors are all amazing and they are willing to help students out. There are also a lot of organizations and different types of groups that you can join. You can also meet a lot of new people while being on campus, overall the University of West Georgia is an amazing school. More people should consider going to UWG.
In my opinion, I like the University of West Georgia because there are different opportunities that makes me want to participate in. The professors and advisors are extremely nice and the the campus is very beautiful. I have met new friends, participated in extracurricular activities, and been involved in social events. The only exception that I would have to say is that the parking at the campus is kinda ridiculous because there are many restrictions that students cannot park and if you get a ticket, the fees are around $35-$50 (I have heard from a friend). Other than that, UWG is a great school to be at.
First of all, let me just start off by saying that this school is very cheap and therefore ideal for people who are financially disadvantaged. I am not able to afford any other school other than West Georgia, and for the price it is pretty decent for what it offers. The academics are good. The professors are good, depending on your major. And the nursing and business program is what the school is known for and is pretty good.
The reason why I rate it average is because I am not happy with the advising I have received as a pre-medical major, and the Biology department leadership. The advisors here are TERRIBLE. If I listened to my advisors about anything they say, I would have been screwed up on so many levels. If you are a pre-profession major (pre-law, pre-dentistry, pre-vet, pre-med, etc), this is probably a very bad school for you to attend. You will have virtually no help at all to assist you in preparing for the application process. On top of this, the leadership in the Biology department is very bad. A lot of Bio professors are good, but some of them are terrible, rude, sarcastic, and not caring about students. The leadership is bad in the sense that there is no sense of community or connection with students, which is what I wanted to feel. In the chemistry department, it is totally different. The faculty make it a point to connect with students and the professors seem to get along and work well together to produce a sound department, which is necessary for leadership. But in the Biology department, some of the faculty don\\\'t get along with each other, and there were some \\\"big egos\\\" with the faculty that were standing in the way of it being a cohesive unit.
The food is very bad, and most juniors/seniors don\\\'t have a meal plan as a result. On campus housing sucks, so a lot of students either live off campus or commute. The party scene here is fairly stifled due to police cracking down on weed smoking and partying on campus, so most of the parties take place off campus in the form of kickbacks in off-campus apartments or venues close to campus. The students here are big on parties and they can be pretty wild, although I will admit I do not party and don\\\'t know that much about that lifestyle. The police here have a reputation of being racist, because the school is located in Carrollton, which is a predominately white conservative, and somewhat poor area.
Carrollton itself is not welcoming if you wander outside campus. It is very racist here, and this was especially felt in 2020 around the election time. If you are a minority coming here, just be prepared to see and experience some things and hear some comments that you never thought you would hear people say to your face.
It is a place where our learning is prioritize and also the student wellbeing. A great learning environment, there are great experiences, there are great teachers who are always rooting for the students achievement and greatness. It’s a very loving environment as the teachers and students strife to always be better.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of West Georgia is 59%. 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 _____.
I would tell myself to be ready to do more school work on my own and not reliy on the teachers to help me get through my course work. Just because you only go to class 2 or 3 times a week for one class you need to look at your material everday to stay ontop of everything.
The teachers are there for you.
Feminist and liberal, open to expression of free thought if those thoughts endorse socialist and environmental ideals.
depends on the class. talkative, enthusiastic, also confused and studius
That we have an amazing meal plan options, and that my campus is like an actually college campus.
They have outstanding diversity among the students that provides an exceptionally friendly social environment. They also regurally look to students on improving life on campus which shows their concern for our well-being.
Declining academic standards
Some one that like the down home feeling and small, but not too small class sizes.
I wish that someone would've told me that money is very hard to come accross. Also i wish someone would've told me that strong, and i mean STRONG self-decipline, plays a major role in college.
Its Business Apartment and Literature
Anyone who is willing to work hard and learn. someone who takes school serious and wants to start a career afterward.
Not being able to sign up for the class you want because it gets full before you can register.
West Georgia is a really ok school.
The classes are great. I enjoy the smaller classes. I feel like I get to know the professors on a more personal level, allowing me to feel more comfortable participating in class.
There is a mixture of everything, and as far as I could tell, the stereotypes are correct. I am a bit hypocritical in this case, thought, because I do not fit the stereotype I am typically placed in.
The most popular groups are definitely any of the Greek organizations. The majority of the students went Greek. I did not join any of the Greek organizations due to financial reasons. However, I have many friends that did and I love getting to know them and their brothers and sisters
