Birth Control Available?
At the University Health Center, birth control prices vary depending on the type and quantity of birth control purchased. For some prescriptions, purchasing a three-month supply is cheaper than purchasing for one month. Also, costs from the pharmacy do not include a physical exam that may be required for the prescription.

There are unlimited opportunities to meet people at UGA: on the bus, at the Student Learning Center, in any class, during group projects, in Greek organizations, in clubs, at the library, at sporting events, at coffee shops, and of course, downtown.
Hookups or Relationships?
Many people are in stable relationships, but there is a huge pool of singles out there. Hookups occur rampantly at the bar scene downtown and at football games. Because alcohol is so popular, the walk of shame is pretty common for many students. Almost everyone is looking for romance in some capacity.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
The best places to meet people are downtown Athens and at fraternity parties. Any bar or frat party is bound to be packed with students looking for a good time. People are drunk, well dressed, and are looking to hook up. Many students get dressed up to go out, so there are a lot of beautiful people in Athens. The coed dorms are also great places to meet members of the opposite sex. Usually, the male floors will have some kind of party going on, and watching late-night movies on the futon is very common. With a little maneuvering, the dining halls and libraries can serve as a dating medium, too. Proper seating arrangements are key, but this is not a tough obstacle to overcome.
During the week, especially in the summer, students tend to dress as comfortably and minimally as possible. Some even choose to wear pajamas.
There generally seem to be two schools of dress at UGA. The "Greek" look is very Southern preppy, with many simply wearing various colored t-shirts with Greek letters and themed events on them. The "hipster" look carries a mixture of Bohemian style, American Apparel, vintage t-shirts, ironic haircuts and facial hair, and general looks of indifference.
To go out, most dress up. Downtown, many girls wear designer clothing with high heels. Skimpy little skirts and dresses are always popular. Guys dress up, too, but generally in a "fratty" way with expensive outdoor gear and outerwear, polos, and khakis.
On game day, everyone wears red and black. Men typically wear a red or black polo or collared shirts with gameday pants of some sort. Almost all girls wear sundresses in the school colors. Sunglasses are a must for the glaring sun at Sanford Stadium.
