What Students Are Saying

4.15 Average Rating
UGA offers an ivy league education, for a public school price. Situated in Athens, GA: ranked the #1 College Town that Rocks by Rolling Stones magazine in 2007 and one of 29 Must Visit places by LA Times magazine in 2009, there are plenty of things to do here. Definitely a great place to spend some great 4 (maybe 5) years.
Darien from Senoia, GA
The University of Georgia is a great place to attend college. The professors are extremely helpful and there are tons of opportunities for students to get involved on campus. Additionally, every professor is involved in research, and there are many opportunities to get involved in undergraduate research.
