    The University of Georgia has a beautiful campus that gives you a peaceful, relaxing feeling. Downtown is within walking distance where there are many different types of restaurants, a movie theater, book stores, and shops. The employees of UGA are very friendly and helpful. Athens has a real college town feeling. Athens is a great place!

    The University of Georgia is a truly diverse, interesting, and massive place. Classes are challenging, but the quality really pays off. You will always find something to do here, whether it's eating exceptional, gourmet food, participating in the many clubs or intramural activities, or just going out for a night downtown.

    Great atmosphere with a little something for everyone. Been to the campus for sporting events and for week-long camps and enjoyed both tremendously. Look forward to receiving an acceptance letter and studying here.

    Academics are the most important, obviously, and I can't say much about them, other than it certainly seems that they're rigorous yet manageable.
