WHAT I LIKED

I love how big the University of Georgia is. There are so many opportunities, over 200 student organizations, and events that are always happening. UGA offers challenging classes and all of my professors have always been caring and willing to help. UGA is truly one of the best universities the South has to offer.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is a lot of greek life, which isn't for everyone. But, by finding your own group of friends, you can easily avoid crowds that you don't like.

WHAT I LIKED

UGA is a very good school academically and more often than not, you’re able to find an organization/group that aligns with your interests. The people I've found here I can see being in my life once I've graduated.

WHAT I LIKED

Overall I really enjoyed UGA. There were so many great classes to take and friends to meet. The dining halls always have yummy food to eat, our sports teams are great and with a huge campus there are plenty of places to explore. There is always something going on at the University too so you'll never find yourself without something to do.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are some overly political professors you will want to watch out for too that can cause you problems. So when you are looking to find courses for this school, make sure to reference Rate My Professor to see what other students think of a prospective professor before you decide to take their class. Otherwise, you should have an amazing time here at the University of Georgia!

WHAT I LIKED

The University of Georgia is an optimal college for your future education. The stem programs are challenging and direct - while also being extremely informative towards future preparation for grad school, medical school, etc.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't like some of the academic departments due to their lack of care. I also don't like the dining hall food due to health issues.

WHAT I LIKED

UGA is more than just a football school. Yes, being in Sanford Stadium, colored red by stadium lights, with every phone light on and swaying at once is an otherworldly experience. The Georgia spirit takes over the entire crowd as we call the dawgs. However, this university also offers tough academic programs, especially in health sciences, that will challenge you in ways that teach you to handle more responsibility. With such a social student body, you learn time management in order to keep up with academics and social life. There are numerous clubs, volunteer organizations, and activities around campus that help you get involved with both the UGA and Athens communities. Athens offers so much outside of school as well. In Downtown Athens, you can find many restaurants with different cuisines and a great nightlife with many bars in one spot. Five Points in Athens also has great restaurants and the go-to pastry place: Independent Bakery. There are many trails and paths on and off-campus for walking, biking, or hiking—the campus and town are pretty walkable. Also, there are dogs almost everywhere. UGA has a guide dog program where students train puppies to be guide dogs and you can find them anywhere on campus, including in your classroom. Aside from those, many students and Athens residents have dogs that they walk on and around campus. I would highly recommend the University of Georgia to anyone. Go dawgs!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Part of the reason you learn so much in UGA’s health science courses is because you have to teach yourself in some classes. Some professors are not as invested in their classes as they are in their research outside of the classroom and that can be overwhelming to students. You need to be aware of which classes those are and be sure to take more time for them to keep up and do well. Parking services do not play games and will ticket you even if you park for two minutes where you don’t have a pass. Beware.
