    if you are not on a meal plan, you will most likely be eating the same things if you want to save on money as other meals tend to be on the more expensive side. however, if you are on the meal plan, the food they provide in the dining halls are great and provide a great variety.

    There are Japanese restaurants in Athens that I would stack up against any. Be sure to try the one that is located behind the Georgia Game day Condominiums. Also, Senior Soles is a great Mexican restaurant, Order the loaded Nachos. Very reasonably priced too.

    The food and dining is exceptional! There are five dining halls, and they are all killer. You can pick whatever dining hall you would like to go to, and one is even open 24 hours a day throughout the school week. There are several meal plans you can choose from if you decide to purchase one, such as a five-day meal plan, a seven-day meal plan, a commuter plan, and so on. If you decide to not purchase a meal plan, you can still attend any of the dining halls and pay for any of the meals through cash or card. Even if you decide to not go for the dining halls, there are several restaurant locations on campus, including Barberito's, Jittery Joe's, Chick-fil-A, and many more! Furthermore, if you are just looking for a quick bite, there are several campus eateries and convenience stores located around campus where you can pick up a sandwich, a bag of chips, or whatever you want to satisfy your taste buds.

    The food is gourmet, all-you-can-eat, and diversified. They change the menu every day and every week. You have unlimited access to the dining halls 5 or 7 days a week depending on the plan you choose.

    I ate in Bolton and have researched Snellings. UGA is the only southern university that I've been bale to find that caters to gluten free eaters! Yay for food I can eat!

    I attended a swim camp at UGA a few years back, and their dining halls are BEYOND amazing! And the town of Athens seems to have a never ending list of great places to eat as well.

    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!
