The Greek life at UGA is very popular and extremely involved in the community. Fraternities and Sororities are ranked in three tiers determined by social history, annual philanthropy success, and academic involvement.

Football is everything at UGA. There would be a bunch of tailgaters on game days, and everyone is wearing black, white, or red. The stadium is huge and you can hear the cheering a mile away. The athletic facilities are huge and up to date.

I'm the type that studies and doesn't go partying, so I wouldn't know what to say. Downtown Athens and the fraternities and sororities parties, however, are the places to be if you want to have a fun time. It takes 30 minutes for buses to come at night, so it can be frustrating.

Athens has a great small town atmosphere. The people are very friendly. There are plenty of tourist attractions, malls, and restaurants .In addition, their is always a fun sporting event going on at any given time. U of G has great sports teams, most especially the football team. Tailgating and football games are the highlight of the Athens life. Overall Athens is a safe town and the local highlights make college life there very enjoyable.

Few students seemed to be involved in drugs and alcohol. Occasionally students were seen drinking in the downtown area.

There are a lot of fast food places and resturants in downtown Athens and in the surrounding area. There is everything from Chinese to Mexican to southern soul food.

Fan support is excellent at UGA. It's such a big deal to go to the games, and I know people that drive 5 hours just to watch from the nose bleed seats. That is dedication.
College Junior 2013-06-27T20:02:36Z
We have one the best food programs in our dinning halls in the country. There is always a variety of choices, and they're all good.
College Junior 2013-06-27T20:01:05Z
My school's love of football and the whole town is amazing. People are dedicated to our team and their goals. It is a very big part of going to UGA.
College Junior 2013-06-27T19:57:41Z
On UGA's campus there is always something to do. Whether it's a game at Sanford Stadium or an event at Tate, there's always a fun atmosphere in Athens.

Varsity sports at UGA are huge! The campus pretty much revolves around football in the fall. Other sports are big too and very enjoyable.
College Sophomore 2013-06-27T18:35:05Z
It rains a lot so when you forget your umbrella or raincoat, it gets pretty miserable. But other than that, it's beautiful in the fall and spring.
College Sophomore 2013-06-27T18:33:49Z
Many places offer student discounts. There are so many different places to choose from, especially downtown. Athens food is great!
College Sophomore 2013-06-27T18:32:52Z
Parking tickets are very expensive but so are parking passes! It's definitely a nightmare. The worst part is when you apply for a lot you really need and never get approved for it.

The dining halls serve high quality food but after eating there three times a day, every day, it gets old. You can't complain about being hungry though because you can get as much food as you want as many times a day as you want.

Athens Transit is free with a student ID. UGA Transit runs nearly everyday and is free to the public. During the busiest times of day, most busses run every 5-7 minutes.

The only requirement to get into the program is to pass a basic POLS 2000 Introductory class. The class covers some basic theory/methods of the department. I found the class challenging, but worth it. It really lets you get the feel of the skills you will need to develop in order to succeed in the major.

UGA has a great campus transit system - probably one of the best in the nation - and the city of Athens also has a transit system that supplies even more buses and more routes that help you get to where you need to go. Best of all - both are free for students.
College Junior 2013-06-26T02:14:59Z
I personally love the facilities that can be utilized at the University of Georgia. Being on the meal-plan, I find the dining halls to be quite exceptional. The quality of the food is great, and you can come, eat, leave, and come back as often as you want.
The public transportation is top-notch: there are campus buses which only travel around campus and a few neighboring locations, and there are a plethora of Athens city buses that can pick you up in plenty of various locations throughout town and take you to and from campus, or to the grocery store, or by your workplace.
There are several different libraries and learning centers on campus that are all comfortable and offer different environments depending on how different people prefer to studying. Learning to actually utilize the Science Library and the Student Learning Center took me a while - I was convinced that studying in my dorm with my door wide open to the loud hallways was just as beneficial - but they are great for locking down, eliminating distractions, and getting work done.

Being one of the top party schools in the country, UGA tries to keep the drug and alcohol scene under control. I think they do a good job as far as keeping drugs and alcohol off of campus, but there is a high level of drug and alcohol once you step off of campus.

Health & Safety:
The campus safety and security is awesome at UGA. Anytime there is a weather alert or there is something dangerous going on in the nearby area or county (i.e. prisoner escape or other local crime) they get in touch with us immediately and do a really great job keeping student informed and aware.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
