University of Georgia Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (44)
Challenging academics, large student population. Choose a major that will give you personal time with your professors. They have office hours for a reason so meet with them. The first semester there take some easy classes and use the extra time to make friends and get to know the area. Develop healthy study habits and give yourself time to study and time to go out. Go to as many football games as possible even if you do not like football. Do not take that time fore granted.
There is no other school I would have rather gone to, it still lives with me every day.
The price wasn't bad for in state students and Georgia offers a great scholarship for in state residents as well. Some of the courses can be difficult but there are plenty of tutoring opportunities and great study spaces. A lot of the professors are really great and dedicated to their subjects and students. Overall I enjoyed my time here.
UGA is a wonderful school that feels like a community, despite its large size. Grady College of Journalism is first-rate. The faculty and classes can't be beat. Athens is a fantastic little city that students never want to leave. School amenities and facilities like housing, dining, study areas, classrooms, the Ramsey Athletic Center, and transportation all contribute to the top-notch living and academic environment at UGA.
I transferred to UGA form Georgia Tech, mostly because of social pressure. UGA, much like other institutions of higher learning, was a gigantic bureaucratic machine intent of churning out people who could say they were graduates. I found my core classes pitifully easy and the teachers largely disengaged with the students. My higher level courses were significantly better, with passionate professors and TAs who were willing to help. The campus is large and getting around was occasionally an issue (especially if living off-campus), but the free bus system helped in that area (as did owning a bike).
UGA was a terrific school but it is a large state school, so for me personally I considered it to be too big. I decided not to join a sorority so it was difficult to make lasting friendships. Classes and professors though were outstanding. There were copious groups and activities to stay busy as well.
The University of Georgia will definitely be one of the best decisions you'll make. From Saturdays between The Hedges to Athens downtown nightlife to the terrific academics, there is so much to experience. And you'll love every bit of it.
Excellent community and academic institution with a lot of history and unique programs. Lovely campus with support for a wide range of interests and thriving extracurricular activities. I loved my undergraduate and graduate career.
Good community atmosphere, particularly during football season. Small town, but very UGA oriented. Psychology department was quite large; therefore, it may be difficult for psych majors to stand out among their peers. Additionally, there were probably many opportunities for psych majors (e.g., internships), but information was not always clearly conveyed.
UGA has a beautiful campus and is seated next to the town of Athens, where you can always find something to do. The staff / faculty of UGA is very friendly and supportive.
