"The University of Georgia has varying programs and scholarships that a student can take part in. It is easy to get overwhelmed with extensive options. As a minority, I would recommend students to take part in smaller groups that make it easier to network with like-minded peers. LSAMP is an organization that promotes minority participation in the STEM field. Each semester, every member is required to complete at least ten hours of community service to continue in the program. Monthly meetings involved volunteer services, resume building sessions, graduate school workshops as well as student-faculty mixers. Students can also earn stipends depending on his or her GPA. I would also recommend the Navigators Christian Ministry to help develop character traits. I had reliable peers and mentors that I could look up to and emulate. Responsibilities such as assembling vendors and arranging locations for our programs as well as collaborating with our guest speakers taught me to become a confident and visionary leader. Having completed such challenging tasks, I transformed from a reserved freshman to an empowered and more focused student. The last piece of advice is to utilize professors office hours to ask questions. Most class sizes are 50 people and above depending on a students major typically with science majors. This makes it hard to ask questions in class and to form closer relationships with classmates and professors. Overall UGA is a very large school with many opportunities. UGA is quite advantageous for majors in Business, Journalism, and Law. The only thing to consider is to personalize the school and make it manageable for students especially regarding one-on-one time with professors."

"The University of Georgia is a wonderful school. It offers students with diverse opportunities for involvement and education. Each program prepares the students for success in every field. For instance, the ability to execute projects in methodical ways, having to quickly evaluate data and make decisions. Another being to think holistically, acknowledging there are multiple paths to achieving a goal. Many of the programs challenge your thinking and help you to train yourself to tackle the most difficult tasks first, recognizing if failure is imminent then it is best to soon discover it so success can more quickly follow. UGA has a wonderful and rich culture and is a phenomenal school to attend"

"Based on my personal experience, my undergraduate education at the University of Georgia has served me very well. I am currently a second year medical student, and I feel that UGA prepared me for the rigors of medical school. The B.S. Biology program at UGA provides a challenging and diverse environment that offers opportunities in undergraduate research, mentoring, and community service. Also- SEC football is fantastic. Go dawgs!"

"Absolutely loved my university: it was exactly as sporty, partying, cultured, hipster, academic, and international as I made it. Wonderful mix of students and the town of Athens has merits of its own. There's plenty of financial support for students, the student gym and athletic facilities are fantastic, five dollar student tickets to see ballet, plays, concerts make culture accessible, and the connections to internships in DC, Atlanta, and elsewhere, studying at UGA facilities in Costa Rica, Italy, and England, and meeting alumni through networking events, all provide opportunities to achieve whatever you set your mind to. The honors program is an added bonus, with dinner discussions, help with national scholarships, and small classes."

"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."
