We Don't Mess Around – If you're not obvious about your drinking and your behavior is aceptable (not obviously drunk), then you'll be fine. If you're caught drinking by RAs, you're punished, but not to severely. If you're caught by the Athens police, they will arrest you. Be careful when downtown. Drug use in the dorms is not tolerated and they will turn you into the police. The honor code is very important and you can get sent to a student jury to decide your punishment.

Growing Noteriety – The state of Georgia offers the HOPE scholarship to in-state students with exceptional grades, therefore in the past decade, extremely intelligent students have decided to attend UGA instead of other notable out-of-state colleges. The has contributed to higher application rates, more selective acceptances, and an overall more reputable national university. All campus curriculums are nationally ranked, and a degree from UGA assures students instant creditability and job opportunities.
Furthermore, because of it's excellent reputation nationwide, UGA has become increasingly popular with out-of-state students.
As one of the top 20 public universities that has boasted more Rhodes scholars than any national state university, who wouldn't chose The University of Georgia?

Adhere to Your Permit – UGA boasts a variety parking lots scattered throughout campus, and permit accessibility is rather convenient and inexpensive. However, with thousands students on campus each day, UGA must undoubtedly monitor the parking situation. If a student is parked in an unauthorized lot, UGA Parking services WILL issue a $30-$40 violation ticket.
Furthermore, city/campus transit at UGA is abundant and reliable. Buy a parking spot on or off campus near a city/campus bus stop, and mass transit will assure you timely transportation to and from classes.

It's Your Choice – As the number four party school in the nation, alcohol use is inevitable at UGA - however, drunkeness doesn't "define" the university. Whether a student consumes alcohol, or chooses to remain sober, the student will still enjoy the "after hours" social atmosphere of UGA and Athens, Georgia.
Furthermore, drugs aren't a visible issue at UGA.

Home Away from Home – The on-campus apartments are amazing. They feel like home and it is still convienient to dining halls and classes. Meal plan is the best because you get unlimited meals. Social atmosphere is very relaxed. Night life is only exciting if you are 21 (old enough to drink). Cost is highly affordable. UGA barely has any complications with anything.

Downtown Athens has hundreds of bars and is a lot of fun. Compared to cities it is really inexpensive and there are always tons of people down there. There are a wide variety of bars so you are sure to find something you like. There is a mixture of walking and cab taking. Cabs are pretty cheap during the week adn get more expensive at night.

The campus itself is beautiful with great architecture and landscaping.

Between the computers at the MLC and the library there are always computers available. They can get pretty crowded during midterms and finals but the wifi is really good so bringing your own computer is always an option. The printing is good as well and relatively inexpensive but you have to use your Bulldog Bucks card to print.

Eat Downtown – If you are tired of dining hall food, give the restaurants downtown a try. There are plenty of places to get pizza, subs, tacos, Italian, and Asian cuisine.

Our athletics department is the best. They have donated millions of dollars to the school. Our athletics brings money and publicity to the school. School spirit is never a problem here on campus. The love for our sports can be seen through the thousands of fans who come to participate. The alumni show how you will never lose the fire for the BULLDOGS!

Health & Safety:
Safety Is Critical – Our campus is safe for a school with over 30,000 students. The campus is open to the public, but when ever there is a disturbance on campus there is an e-mail and text message sent out to the students who have subscribed for the service. Even weather reports are sent out.

Hit or Miss – I've heard a few greeks talking about some horrible things that have happened that I would only think would happen in some backwards hollywood portrayal of college, and that greatly lowered my opinion of the greek population. That image can not be cast upon the whole of the greek student body, as some of them are extremely friendly and helpful.

There Is a Wide Variety to Choose from – Dining halls on campus are very efficient, well-kept, and host a variety of items for a diverse student body. The only real problem I found while dining was relating to a few of the people on staff on an individual level.

Not Many Minorities – UGA is diverse to an extent, and associations make a great effort to bring together students of different ethnicities and backgrounds. However all minorities are way outnumbered by the might majority. There are, though, always opportunities to find people that you can relate to, weather they are the same ethnicity as yourself or not. Its expected that in the south there is the "redneck" stereotype, but that really isn't as common as people would expect.

A Top School That Offers a Top Experience – UGA is a great school. It is highly ranked and for a good reason. The classes are tough but that is what it is known for, for being a school that produces graduates that are prepared for success. The Professors are highly qualified, so you know that the education you are paying for is of a good quality. The Campus life though makes up for the hard work you put into classes. There facilities are top, and its just an all around great place to go to school.

Love the school spirit with the teams and the school fans. We get together as a school (unit) and we stay that way until the end.

Like the idea that you have to have parking permits. People don't try to get in your space and you are reassured that you have a spot when you get home.

Hot in the summer and cold in the winter, but overall, a very pleasant place to be. It can get really, really humid, but it doesn't distract from activities too much. The main thing is that it doesn't usually get too cold in the winter.

One of the Few – As a Russian major, not many people share quite my level of interest in the subject. Russian is a relatively small program compared to others at UGA, but it is a good one. There could be more opportunities abroad, however, for real experience.The teachers are all very helpful and want you to learn, though. The classes are in an older building, but it kind of gives it that Russian feel. Overall, it's a very good program and I wouldn't do anything else.

Athens Is a Very Beautiful Place! Athens has a huge downtown square that has the cutest shops. It also has many convenient places to study with friends. There are many activities and places around Athens that help engage students in community involvement.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
