I genuinely would not want to attend any other college. It has the full experience and every opportunity a student could want, with so many philanthropies, clubs, and organizations. I always have easy access to my professors, who are top-notch and incredibly helpful in the classroom as well as in helping career-wise. The academics are exactly what I would want--challenging, and my only complaint is that it operates under a +/- system, so it's more difficult to maintain a high GPA. Again, it's the best university I could ask to attend. Go Dawgs!

I am currently a first year at UGA and have been blown away by my experience so far. There are so many opportunities for growth on this campus. I have been introduced to so many different people and organizations just within my first semester. It is evident that the faculty cares about your success. If you are struggling in a class there are many free resources that you can use to help you improve, such as free tutoring. The campus itself is beautiful! Just walking around campus, I can tell that the students here are so passionate about their school.
Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at the University of Georgia. As an undergraduate student majoring in Management Information Systems, the Terry College of Business provided multiple avenues and events to get connected to professionals in my field. In addition, the majority of my professors were very approachable and took an active interest in their students, not only in their classroom achievements, but also in their post-graduation success as well. The campus has tons of student organizations to get involved in for whatever your interests may be. There are also ample opportunities to work on campus whether it be in the dining halls, as a resident assistant, serving as a tour guide for UGA, or even as a bus driver. You read that right, students can drive the campus transit buses! For those who are big sports fans, watching the Dawgs play football on Saturday afternoons in Sanford Stadium is hard to beat. Go DAWGS!
