Dean Baraso - 3/2/2017
Degree: Statistics
Graduation Year: 2014
"The University of Georgia is a place that provides a wealth of opportunity and chances. The school has a wide range of degrees they offer and the faculty is there to support you all the way. The courses are fairly rigorous. The university does its best preparing students for a career outside of college with its vast array of networking opportunities provided to the students through career fairs. The career center helps with everything from resume building to preparation for interviews. The statistics program at the school is tough and prepares you well for graduate school. My only issue with the statistics program is the alumni network could improve and they do a poor job preparing bachelor students with a career after they graduate."

"The University of Georgia affords students all of the opportunities associated with a large research university. During my time at UGA, I was able to study abroad, conduct independent research, and run a student organization. Professors are approachable and eager to help you. The cost is very affordable, particularly for Georgia residents, and you can't beat Saturdays in Athens!"

"The University of Georgia has been my home for an incredible four years. I have had a wonderful experience at UGA, both academically and personally. My professors really want their students to do well and are always around to help and answer questions. They encourage their students to be the best they can be, to seek and learn. The wonderful community of Athens embraces their students and cultural diversity - there is so much to see, enjoy, and be a part of in your college town experience. I will always find my way back "home" to Athens in the years to come - as a member of the coveted bulldawg nation."

"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"

"What you get out of a business degree at the University of Georgia depends on your own dedication and the type of classes you take. I found that (most of) the smaller classes benefited me the most over large, 200-student lecture halls. Smaller classes are, of course, more intimate, less intimidating and professors are better equipped to taylor the class for the speed of the students. The problem is, it's a big school, so there A LOT of large lecture classes. For the most part, professors care about students and are there to help with questions and networking. Most professors are also pretty laid back and approachable. There are TONS of networking opportunities. TONS. Diversity is..... Okay, there is none. Sure, you can find people of color if you look for them in student organizations or take a good, HARD look around some of your classes, but they are few and far between. If you find it frustrating to exist in places that lack diversity in a country that calls itself a melting pot of cultures, this school will not appease you. But most people are pretty friendly, regardless of where they come from. Greek life is quite active, if that's your scene. Also, UGA typically ranks in the top 5 party schools in the nation every year. So, if you enjoy sleep.....research your dorm/apartment before you decide to live there.... If you hate sleep, have fun! There's plenty of it! Especially around football season. Aspects like these at UGA (greek life, parties, sports, meeting people, etc) have the feel of a college movie stereotype come to life. The feel and look of the campus depends on where you are. When I graduated, classes held around the science buildings weren't much to look at. Most buildings hadn't been renovated since the 70s. When I was there, East campus was pretty new, so there wasn't much beyond a few dorms, the fanciest dining hall, the music building and...grass. The central area near the football stadium is typically bustling and filled with life. But North Campus where most business classes are held is gorgeous. It's shady and grassy and has an old school collegiate feel. I never minded walking to class in Georgia heat when I had North Campus to look at in all it's breezy, chill, apple-totting squirrel army glory."

"I grew up in Athens, GA, where UGA is located, and am a 3rd generation graduate of the university. I always knew I wanted to continue that tradition and graduate from such a wonderful school. My professors were wonderful, helped me figure out how to get my first job out college, and really worked with me to help make sure I stayed on top of my studies to graduate. I was able to really apply my studies to my our of school life, and it has helped me continue my career to this day. I'm now in graduate school online at Michigan State University, studying Leadership, Strategy, and Management. UGA has such a diverse campus that I felt really taken care of, and was always treated fairly. GO DAWGS!"

"The advertising program at UGA is extremely organized and well-developed. Many of the teachers had a very positive impact on me and were super eager to help when I needed it. For such a large school, I was very impressed by this. However, I wish I had known earlier on how little training the program offers in graphic design, which is an interest of mine and why I wanted to study advertising to begin with. I really wanted to learn more about the designing and conception of an advertisement, but UGA's program really pushed students to work in the account management side of the industry. What I learned hasn't helped me get a job on the graphic design side of advertising, and after working an internship at a prestigious ad agency, I've learned that I could have done a lot of what I did at that agency without a college degree. Much of what I did was email sending and small odd tasks. While I was just an intern, I could see that others in similar roles who had been there for years weren't doing anything that much bigger than what I did as an intern. Nothing about what I was doing let me be creative at all, which was the whole reason I was interested in the advertising program."
