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!

I went to Georgia as an out of state student. I didn't know many people and was certainly going out of my comfort zone. I quickly got involved in Greek Life and a couple other organizations and realized everyone was in the same boat. Everyone around me seemed incredibly inviting and the athletic events created a large sense of comardery. Besides the social aspect of UGA, I was always challenged academically. Professors are helpful and always willing to meet outside of class if you need extra help. I really recommend this school because there is a "niche" area for everyone!
