  • Most of the dorms on campus aren't that bad, but it's not the best. If you're a girl, stay away from Watson Hall which is the all girls dorm. …

  • Mar-27-2017 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Wasn't able to see any of the dining halls when I visited, but they have some good meal plans.

    The food service is not that good. Recently, UWG parted ways with its long-time food provider, Aramark, and began its own food department, Dine West, which is in its first year of serving the student body. While it tastes good, it is far from nutritious.

    The food is really good especially the breakfast. Depending on what meal plan you have they give you wolf bucks and dinning dollars, which sometimes can be used for the same thing. The cafeteria workers are very nice and generous by giving you a lot of food with a smile.

    the dining halls serve pretty good food but sometimes you can get bored of eating it. thankfully, you can use your dining dollars at other on campus restaurants like starbucks, subway, chik-fil-a, einstein bros, and domino's.

    Once again this is subject to one's past experiences, but overall the dining experience was positive. There were times when certain stations would be out of order for an indefinite period of time. The drinks especially would have various options empty and would require (at least for me), traversing the dining hall to see if the other station was not empty (sometimes it was, sometimes it was not). There were times when I wished for better service, but I can be picky in this area, and I am sure it is not something many others felt or were aggravated by.

    They have a Starbucks! Need I say more? If I were to go on, I'd also mention the Chick fil a and Subway on campus. The two dining halls seem to offer a lot of options, but if you're looking for a more aesthetically pleasing eat spot, the Square has a few spots that Carrolton citizens seem to like quite a lot.

    I do not know, since unfortunately, I have suffered through 2 years of UWG online courses.

    we are officially one of the two schools in georgia home to the "divine nine". meaning we have all nine of the national sororities and fraternities. don't be mistaken because we aren't limited to them and our greek life is pretty diverse.

    Maybe joining a sorority or fraternity on campus would be a good idea if you go to UWG since then you will have friends to talk to that can help you figure out why the courses are designed so poorly, why no one who manages the school offices knows what's going on, and why your coursework is so time-consuming and unmanageable that you have no time to sleep or live your life.

    The greek life's fun for those who are in it, some organizations are pretty cool and try and reach out, others are pretty close knit, so its kind of hard to interact with some. That being said, there are some great people within their organizations, just depends on how well you get along with them.

    Greek Life is amazing - fourteen sororities and thirteen fraternities - six of them being apart of the National Pan-Hellenic. All of them have a minimum requirement for GPA and hold various events throughout the year - both social events and volunteer work.

    Our Greek Life plays a big role here on campus. Personally, I would recommend waiting until your sophomore year, or at least rush Spring during your freshman year. I am so glad I waited to rush because I got to find out more about the sororities here on campus over the past two semesters; things you can't learn in a few days. Our Greek Life is the biggest social network this campus has to offer. It's either rush or be a GDI, Gosh Darn* Independent. I had this idea of what Greek life was prior coming to college, but West Ga Greek Life definitely changed that out look. Can't wait to rush fall. Go wolves!
