At the Zell Miller Learning Center, which is basically the study building computers are EVERYWHERE so if the place is not too crowded you shouldn't have a time finding a computer to use. But if it's the week before finals or something like that expect to walk around the building multiple times to find a seat or a computer.

Lots of majors to choose from, ranging from accounting and business to engineering and biology.

Not a lot of parking spaces around campus, make sure to get to campus at least 30 minutes early if you want to secure a spot.

Diversity is present, but there are obviously few minorities in comparison. Most students are very accepting of other cultures though.

Food is great in Athens, and that is one of my favorite parts of the city. The meal plan is good for your freshman year. After that, I think all students should try out the local restaurants around town. They are great, and many restaurants are geared to college-friendly budgets.

Campus strictness, as far as academics go, are fairly strict and are enforced fairly well. Most classes have a displayed "Culture of Honesty" plaque on their walls, representing that no tolerance will be given for individuals that choose to cheat.

UGA students know how to party hard, but they also know how to study hard. If anything, they party "smart." Alcohol usage is prevalent among sorority/fraternity life as well as the downtown Athens area. Besides that, most students are smart about their alcohol usage.

Health & Safety:
Security on campus, especially if for the on-campus residence halls, are great. Besides that, especially at night, security is limited. Police officers are around, but generally do not make much of a presence. Overall, I do not feel unsafe, but I also feel like a bigger presence of law enforcement would make me feel safer at night.

I'm in biological sciences which is very challenging. UGA has gotten very competitive to get into the last few years and I think the courses have become more difficult. But that should help,me in medical school.

The town is awesome, with lots of nightlife, bars, restaurants. Big music scene with a lot of clubs. Football season is huge, traffic is bad then, but it's very exciting.

They're a presence but didn't really hassle me or my friends.

I lived in the dorm and had a parking place very near by. But I either walked or used the campus bus around school. You don't HAVE to have a ca on campus, but it is difficult to shop if you don't, and live on campus.

There are plenty of restaurants in downtown Athens that are really convenient for the times when people get sick of eating mealplan food.

The buses run on time great before 11 am. But as the day goes on they get slower and slower, especially after 4 pm.

Generally, the teachers are great and willing to help. But, you always run into those few situations where the teachers are harsh graders or are unavailable at office hours to help.

Way over priced, and parking tickets are $40 if you are parked illegally. There is little/no free visitor parking. On college game days, even if you have paid for a parking space for the semester, you still have to move your vehicle.

Athens is known for being good for clubbing....and there are restaurants. and a museum if you walk long enough
College Sophomore 2013-06-09T01:46:02Z
The facilities are well taken care of, especially the athletic facilities, especially the football athletic facilities.

Guys & Girls:
For my year, I think there was a good balance of the amount of guys and girls. Granted, in some of my classes, the amount of guys could be counted on one hand, but while walking around I see a good mix. I guess one could say there are a lot of attractive people on campus, but it depends on one's personal preference. I don't care for appearance, but care for personality. And there were many amazing and diverse personalities to be found. There are evident clothes trends that spring up in accordance to the weather, but one doesn't have to follow them or even pay them mind. I didn't, and was simply a happy camper :D

There are 35,000 people at UGA. It's impossible to accommodate everyone, but Parking Services tries. You don't need to park on campus if you live nearby, like on Milledge, because buses run often. If you're living on campus, you will get a spot though, so no need to worry. It just may not be in the lot or deck you really want.

Athens is a perfect college town. No matter what you're in the mood for, be it shopping, restaurants, or nightlife, you can find it downtown, which is basically connected to campus. There are so many different types of people in Athens, so cultural experiences are never hard to find. Be willing to step outside of your comfort zone once in a while and you won't regret it. The only negative is that Athens-Clarke county is the poorest in the state, so impoverished people and housing projects surround the campus. UGA students are very focused on giving back, however, and there are innumerable ways to volunteer in the community.

Only freshmen live on campus. Ninety-nine percent of upperclassmen live off campus, but there are so many options in Athens that are affordable and close to campus. As far as dorms go, the freshman high rises- Russell, Creswell, and Brumby- are where most people live. If you're very social and are willing to sacrifice some niceties, definitely live in that part of campus. The atmosphere is once in a lifetime. Unless you're in the honors program, in that case Myers is fantastic. So much nicer and a more central location. You may end up with hall mates that are a little more eccentric, however. Athletes and some upperclassmen live on East Campus. The Hill community is great for people who prefer the quiet.

There is truly a place for everyone at UGA. It's a giant school, which can seem overwhelming at first, but once you find the niche where you feel most comfortable, it feels like home. Part of the appeal of such a large school is our access to facilities at home and abroad, as well as remarkable activities. Check the master calendar- there is ALWAYS something going on.

Although I do not use the bus system, I know that it is A+. Parking is expensive and you will do a lot of walking.

Parties atre usually thrown by the locals or the frats. If you go to a frat party there is hardly any liqour available and they charge way too much for entry. Parties usually get shut down at 12am-1am. The locals who throw parties are better but you have to beware of the ratchet people of the city.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
