University of Georgia Reviews
UGA is definitely one of the most spirited school amongst others with their deep love and involvement for the football team. Too bad, this spirited school has no diversity; I won't tell you who's dominant group here, but you can take a good guess. You can definitely see a strong line of ethnic divisions here. Aside from the lack of connection among students, I do enjoy attending UGA. You can tell the academics here are outstanding when the professors have multiple degrees under their belt; I definitely appreciate learning from someone who major experiences. Lastly, the buildings are decent. I know that the business buildings are under renovation/ construction. Let's pray the science buildings are next!
Living on campus as a freshman or beyond, it is very easy to become involved. There are many campus organizations that are seeking student involvement and that host events. From my experience, professors are interested in you doing your best, so they work well with their students to help them succeed. Living in the area is nice- there is a nice scene downtown. There are good restaurants, concerts are always going on in the theater, there are good places to shop, and you're not too far from Atlanta or north Georgia!
UGA is a fantastic college! The campus is beautiful and provides many amenities and opportunities for students. The classes are very helpful and taught by passionate professors. Advisors and staff care about student's growth and the school overall inspires hardworking students. Despite being such a large institution, it is overall managed well with few concerns regarding safety. GoDawgs!
