    The dining halls serve the best food! There are so many options to choose from, and they are all equally as good. There is even a dining hall that is open 24 hours.

    The ding hall food is great. There are many options that you will love. Only downside is believe it or not you may get tired of the food (It's very hard to believe) however, there is no doubt that the food is out this world especially compared to other schools.

    UGA has five dining halls on their meal plan that are THE BEST. Each dining hall offers so much variety and high quality of food. The people who work there are so accommodating for when you ask for speciality items such as gluten free or vegetarian. The brand new dining hall, Bolton, has hand spun milkshakes, a create your own pasta line, deli, all-day breakfast and a great oriental station. Also, Snelling is open 24 hours during the week and it holds some of my favorite memories from Snellibrating late at night after midnight. O-House has sushi and a burrito bar. East Campus has handmade smoothies, omelettes, pizza and grill. The Niche is a perfect destination for the best food on campus as well. Perfect atmosphere in all the dining halls.

    The food and dining experience at UGA and in Athens are incredible! I love the many choices of diverse food around campus. The dining halls are first class as well! I always felt like I was at home. The unlimited food was definitely a bonus.

    The University of Georgia has four dining halls on campus. They're all pretty big and each one offers a variety of choices. They are also vegan and vegetarian friendly.

    UGA has earned numerous awards for their dining options and I think they deserve them. The food here is basically as good as it gets for college meal plan. You get unlimited swipes every day, one of the dining halls is open 24 hours a day and there is a good variety of food. They also make a point of trying to host some fun special dinners and events around campus events and holidays.

    The food here is considered top notch for a reason. There are so many different options with five dining halls and so many choices in each one. The meal plan is worth the money even after you are a freshman.

    I am not able to rate Greek life due to my lack of experience with the area. However, I have heard from others that Greek life at UGA is very big and beneficial to the community. I have not seen how Greek life benefits the community, but I will take other's word for it. In my experiences so far, I have learned to see Greek life as somewhat shallow and a little annoying. The process to join a chapter is very extensive and is usually simply based off looks and likability. Usually, people brag about how attractive a certain sorority or fraternity is, which is something that I do not personally agree with.

    The Greek life at UGA is teeming with plenty of sororities and fraternities to choose from and get involved with. The dances, parties and socials they hold are always so fun and in neat locations (Georgia Theater, Classics Center). Also, the prestige of the names of these frats and sororities helps carry on for jobs and future employment. Greek life includes anyone and everyone with options for the most committed to the least involved. They support charities and foundations that bring a sense of pride to the name of the Greek life and the houses are BEAUTIFUL with their southern charm and location. Its a great addition and a definite plus at the University of Georgia.

    The presence of Greeks are everywhere on campus. From philanthropies to the social scene, you'll be able to find people wearing letters wherever you go. We don't stereotypically party like you see in the movies though. The Greeks here on campus have the highest GPA among the entire school and are seen achieving great things in the business world!

    Georgia is pretty neutral in Greek life. If you want to go Greek you can at Georgia. At the same time it's easy to attend Georgia and not be involved and around Greek life.

    Greek life is a really big deal at the University of Georgia, but even people that aren't in Greek life still have lots of friends and fun. Don't worry about how it will affect your social life, you'll figure it out.

    UGA has great greek life. There are so many different sororities and fraternities whose goals during recruitment are to get as many students in a sorority or a fraternity as possible, so there is something for everyone. Greek students at UGA are some of the most involved students on campus, making up a majority of the leaders in other organizations. At some schools, greek students are only involved in their own organizations, but that is definitely not the case at UGA!
