There are tons of computer labs, their wireless network is great and never fails. When you walk into the labs it is literally like an advertisement for Apple.

There is a LOT of policing on campus. There are two different authority figures.

The Miller Learning Center and the Tate Student Center are absolutely beautiful buildings. The dining halls are pretty nice, too.

I'm surprised at how pretty nearly all of the UGA students are. Football is an obsession here, so good luck if you don't care about it.

So many housing options. From one bedroom to four, from low budget to high, Athens is full of apartments, houses, and condos available to rent. There is something for everybody. Athens is an old town so some of the apartment complexes are a little run down, but there are also newer places.

Transportation is really a life-saver here at UGA. It saves on the high costs of gas to just ride the bus wherever you need to go, and the bus stops are all at reasonable places so that one doesn't have to walk for miles to get to the building they need to go to. However, the new parking permit system here is... odd, and it costs a lot. I would recommend just being dropped off and taking the bus if you can.
College Senior 2013-01-15T01:16:31Z
You might have to do a bit of walking to the bus stops, but they have areas where you can sit to get out of the rain. There aren't a ton of areas like this, though, so having an umbrella would be a good idea.

There are all kinds of things to do on UGA's campus, from the tons of events that take place here to over 500 clubs and organizations one can join. The place is always buzzing with excitement.

Health & Safety:
I haven't been here for too long, but from what I've seen, UGA has an excellent Health and Safety program here. There are many places a student can go to talk about health issues, such as the dental clinic, travel clinic, women's clinic, and more at the Health Center. Also, the campus police is top-notch.

The course program is alright. The beginning classes are weed out classes, but it gets better later on
College Junior 2013-01-14T21:39:36Z
Academics are hard at UGA. Many classes are much more difficult than they should be, but if you are interested in a subject than the classes will be interesting
College Junior 2013-01-14T21:38:25Z
The dining halls are great. They have many options, but not all healthy. They have pizza, sandwiches and salads most dining halls.
College Junior 2013-01-14T21:37:00Z
My major is very hard. UGA tries to weed out many students at the beginning but after getting through those classes, it gets interesting
College Junior 2013-01-14T21:34:31Z
The facilities at UGA are great. We have an awesome gym, great dining halls and amazing running trails. UGA has many fun activities to participate in and there is always something to do.

No matter who you are or where you come from, it is nearly impossible to feel alone on this campus. There is something for everyone.

The Greek life at the University of Georgia is huge. The houses are beautiful and historic. This definitely creates a unique social scene. There are also a ton of other organizations to get involved with like UGA Miracle, UGA Hero's, or Relay for Life. The traditions here are unbeatable.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T18:17:42Z
I think the University of Georgia has the most school spirit. I love going to football games and cheering in the student section.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T18:16:04Z
The cost to park in campus is way too expensive. They should definitely drop the price.
College Sophomore 2013-01-12T18:14:27Z
I love University of Georgia. The rules give me the freedom that I need, while still providing students with a safe environment to live and learn.

There are a ridiculous amount of off-campus housing options at UGA--hardly a day goes by without receiving an email advertising some new complex. However, there are a few common complaints. Many apartment complexes or townhomes are at a considerable distance from campus. While they usually advertise being close to a bus line, buses can get crowded very quickly and you might find yourself forced to pass up two completely full buses before you can find room on one to get to campus. If you don't have a car, living off campus can also make grocery shopping difficult. On the plus side, in off-campus housing, you get your own kitchen and bathroom instead of having to share with an entire hall or building. There's a lot more privacy and freedom. But it does come at the cost of a few transportation-related inconveniences.

At UGA, there are plenty of options for locations to live on-campus. For freshman, the traditional location is in the Big Three, consisting of Brumby, Russell, and Creswell Halls. However, from what I've heard, these halls are loud and noisy at night, rooms are small, and you are confined to community bathrooms. If you apply early action and get in, but don't know if you want to go to UGA or not, I would still turn in the housing fee to secure your spot ahead of all those applying with the normal application. I have lived in Oglethorpe House for two years now and have loved it for the most part. The rooms are bigger than the average, and you have private bathrooms, as well as the comfort of a dining hall only a few steps right outside the door.

Transportation at UGA is fairly good, with 10 different routes to get students to class on time. Usually, if you catch the right bus at the right location, you'll make it to class in time. However, there are areas where bus stops become extremely crowded, such as in front of the Tate and Memorial Hall stops. As well, on rainy days, the bus schedule becomes extremely slow and buses are even more crowded than usual. After about 6, you might want to take a car to ECV or downtown, as the bus schedule spreads out and you might not see the bus you need for up to 45 minutes.

The university really focuses on football as a community during the season, and you can tell that the campus is itching to return during the off season.

There are many types of nightlife activities without having to drink.

I had a leak into my room, so it smelled funny for a semester, and the water was freezing every time I showered. But those were the old dorms.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
