Leaving Gwinnett for Carrollton and enrolling at UWG changed me a lot. Being in Carrollton changed the way I think, the way I move, the way I act and the people I trust. Being in college period is going to change you but it’s different at West. The campus is bigger and has way more people that I can actually connect with than I did in High School. Being at UWG made me not like coming home at all because there is literally nothing left to do back home AT ALL. I have no reason of being here except for seeing my mom and sister, I finished high school and that was the only reason I was even in Gwinnett, for school. West has opened many opportunities and chances to get ahead in life not only by providing me with a further education past high school but with the many different groups and activities that tend to every and anyone’s likes because of the wide variety. I’ve learned a lot about myself while being at UWG and I like the person I’ve become. GO WEST, GO WOLVES!

Overall, it's a Superb college, because of the various activities the school holds that advocate safe on-campus fun, and student involvement. Speaking of student involvement, the college also has numerous of clubs that gives back to the community and people around it. For Instance, a club called Center for student involvement host events that care for the elders in the surrounding environment. In addition, we also have a variety of churches on and off campus for students to continue their walk with Christ. For example, I attend a non-denominational church called CWOW. Then, If you are looking for a safe campus, University Of West Georgia is it! From self- experience I can vouch that I've walked more than 30 feet from my dorm to the library numerous nights, alone, and can say that I always felt safe. Although Kennesaw was my first choice, I fell in love with the University of West Georgia and I am proud to call myself a wolf.
The University of West Georgia has served as home for me. The campus is concise, yet has an array of environments and setting to meet any preference. The library, buildings, and academic accommodations are all up to par and consistently being improved upon. Athletics and clubs are always fun and there are many to choose from. Center for Student Involvement is always hosting free events to get involved while also taking a break from school stress and meet new people. I never plan on transferring from this college and hope to also earn my Master's here!
