I am a wildlife Biology major and, so far, I love it. This is one of the small majors at UGA with only about 150 of us. For this reason, there is a stronger sense of community between students and professors. My advisor sends out emails all the time of all the job opening across the country related to my major in order to show that there are jobs out there, and this comforts me. I am still trying to figure out where I am headed with this major but I know it will be a fulfilling career for me. I chose it because it is what I have passion for, not because it will make me rich.

Even though some classes can be intimidatingly large, there are usually tutors offered for free that can help if you get lost. I learn just as well in my big classes as my small. It all depends on how well you pay attention and study. I take advantage of my professors willingness to help me and the free tutoring here quite often. Most professors are well organized and very knowledgeable.

There is extremely limited parking at UGA and it is very pricey. It is also competitive to get a spot and I have friends that could not get one. I was able to find a spot in a church parking lot that is not affiliated with the university and I just pay a semesterly donation of my choice, which is awesome in comparison. They need to build more parking decks and lower the prices.

I am not involved in Greek life but I have friends who are. Most of them love it but a couple decided to drop out because of how fake the people are. If you are looking for a place to be involved in Greek life, I here this is an awesome place to do it though. Most of the Greek houses are beautiful and really cool and my friends that are living in them love the sense of community. I never really feel left out of things because I did not rush. Greek life is present but it does not takeover the whole school. Some people involved in Greek things do seem to judge others that are not, but that could be said for anywhere.

Wide range but not much STEM options that are applicable.

Campus police don't really bother you unless you are doing something blatantly out of control. If you are smart, you will be completely fine.

If you are looking for an internship in Athens, you will definitely be able to find one. In my majors or Advertising and English they are constantly sending emails and posting flyers about opportunities. It is just up to you if you want to take advantage of these or not.

During the summer it can be extraordinarily hot, and there is countless hills to climb to classes, which isn't a good combination. Appropriate clothing and water can solve this though, and it is only for the first couple weeks of the semester.

There is a very wide array of majors. Most likely there is something for you!

Scholarships are really great for in-state students: HOPE and Zell Miller save students a lot of money!
Recent Alumnus 2013-09-11T03:20:35Z
There is campus and Athens transit, which is free for students! However, sometimes I will be waiting a long time fore a bus

I liked the health services at UGA. They gave me some good tips about which doctors I could see.
College Sophomore 2013-09-09T08:08:44Z
If you have an ID, you can use the city bus for no extra charge, which makes transportation from off-campus very easy.

No one gets dressed for class. Everyone wears shorts and a baggy T every day.

I wish I could afford study abroad, it seems like only very well of people can afford stuff like that. Everything else is great though.
College Sophomore 2013-09-05T01:46:30Z
Not a big deal to me, but I think a lot of other people are really into it.
College Sophomore 2013-09-05T01:44:05Z
I'm very excited. Its challenging, but worth it. Sometimes I feel some of my classes are kind of pointless though, but most are great!

The University of Georgia has a major for anybody and everybody. Though the most popular degrees usually fall under the science category, the university has majors in everything from journalism, to law, even veterinary medicine and art. The organization of the majors by school could be better and I find that it's unfair for certain privileges to be given to those in certain schools (ie: Blue Card is only for the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences so as a member of the College of Engineering I don't get this benefit.)

Guys & Girls:
Everyone's helpful in the street to ask questions (how to get to classes ..etc.). Socially, people often form specific "groups" to include and exclude students in clean line -- a few high school practices. Most people are friendly, mature, and open to making friends.
