There are many different apartment complexes. They are alike, with the exception of a few nicer places I've seen.

There is no such thing as perfect. There is always room for improvement

As a vegan, the options are not as satisfying as expected. To the nonveggie community, however, Athens offers a wide variety of food options that for the most part are quite reasonably priced. The top of north campus directly coincides with Broad Street and the start of downtown Athens. Some restaurant types include mexican, italian, pizza parlors, and other various "college foods." Also, UGA works with local businesses/ restaurants and has an online site allowing students to order and pay for delivery. This is especially convenient during weekends, finals and holidays when the dinning halls are closed.

To my knowledge and understanding, the campus itself is quite safe and so long as no laws are broken on campus the police do not get involved. The fraternity and sorority houses, at times, will host events that can be considered too boisterous, but so long as the front and back yards are blocked from the view of the public (usually by large black tarps) the police do not seem to be too interested. I believe one or two assaults happened during the past two semesters I have been attending UGA.

UGA has eight buses, I believe, as well as the Athens city buses, which run at intervals of about 15 minutes during the work week. The UGA buses are moderately used, but can become very crowded on rainy days and at certain stops (i.e. on Sanford in front of the Tate center). The only part of campus that is not completely reachable by buses, is the further parts of east/ south campus. All of North campus is covered. The city buses drive through most of campus and is free to students so long as they have their student ID on them.

Varsity sports is a big part of the school. The Ramsey center is one of the best gyms in the nation

I have never received financial aid from my school.

Health & Safety:
I do not feel unsafe at the University of Georgia. Police are all over campus and there is rarely a threat of danger.

Guys & Girls:
The guys all seem pretty down to earth. You have a variety of them on campus. For example, you have the nerdy, preppy, fratty, and jocks all in the same University. There really aren't that many conflicts that arise with guys at school. Everyone usually gets along well from my knowledge.

I love being in the Terry College of Business. There are so many great networking, study-abroad, and job opportunities. The business school has many great alumni that are willing to help recent graduates get jobs. The teachers in the business school are top notch and have been known to win many awards throughout the school.

The University of Georgia is re-known for its academics. It is ranked number 16th of the top public university list by forbes. We have a phenomenal business and journalism school that is ranked high in Consumer Reports. The other colleges within UGA have an intellectual group of faculty and staff that helps students achieve their academic goals on a day-to-day basis.

There are a variety of nightclubs for students. Music is very diverse and there's a place to go for everyone with different tastes. The guy to girl ratio is kind of bad, but other than that the nightlife is pretty good.

UGA is all about creating spaces for students to gather. There is plenty of green spaces to just sit down, relax, study, whatever. A common hangout spot on campus is the SLC (MLC) or Tate.Theres everything in these two buildings and they conveniently are located across from each other. A lot of classes are held in the SLC which is where people gather to study and hang out and just across the way you can grab a bite at one of the many food spots.

If you can think of it, Athens probably has it. Clubs, dining, theaters, music, movies, zoo,shopping, etc. Downtown is usually always busy, but come the weekends it is packed. No matter what you and your friends are into, im sure you can find it here. There is honestly never a dull moment in this town.
College Junior 2013-07-31T02:39:01Z
There's not much you can't love. The campus is so pretty, there is always something to see or do. I can't speak for other academic programs, but SPIA is amazing. I love the school, the advisors, the professors and the classes.
College Junior 2013-07-31T02:33:52Z
As long as you mind your own business and keep out of trouble you wont have problems. The police aren't harassing or bothersome. The campus is amazing. There really isnt any school policies that are really strict, grades are just really important. Other than that, you can really get away with a lot.
College Senior 2013-07-29T21:04:52Z
I have wonderful professors and advisors in the area of sociology! They are always eager to help. I would not change a single thing.
College Senior 2013-07-29T21:03:44Z
The university has a pretty rigorous curriculum. Be prepared to study A LOT!

Alcohol is going to be present on any college campus, but the University Police Department does a very good job controlling it.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to participate in the local sorority Xi Delta. It has been the most wonderful experience I could imagine. I have made friends that I will have for a lifetime. There will always be people who view Greek life as a bad thing, but I have had only good things happen. It has brought me to my sisters, and out of my shy personality.
College Freshman 2013-07-29T18:44:17Z
From what I've heard greek life is definitely you want to get involved with if you have the time.

I don't know much about the athletic facilities since I just transferred and have not been to a football game yet but I do know we have an awesome football team, go DAWGS! Their rivals are the Georgia Tech's yellow jackets, Wreck Tech!

Even though I don't do the nightlife here in Athens, I heard a lot of the same stories from people. You don't have to be 21 to be out with your friends bar hopping, getting into them with fake IDs, and the bartenders don't even check IDs when students are purchasing drinks. Apparently, my friends say it's entertaining when it comes to drunk people. But beware of the cops, they are always on the lookout, you do not want to be on the cover of Red & Black.
College Senior 2013-07-29T14:20:35Z
There are plenty of restaurants that are open at the latest 3 in the morning if you are looking for a late night dinner while taking a study break. That is like the norm for a lot of college students here. They even include delivery late at night, depending which restaurants you choose to eat. Don't forget to check out the handy dandy student coupon book that was provided at the beginning of the semester to check out for great meal deals and what not.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
