The University of Georgia is a public research university founded in 1785. It is one of three schools to hold the title of the oldest public university in the United States. The flagship campus is located in Athens, Georgia, which has been rated as one of the best college towns in the country by U.S. News and World Report. This Public Ivy is responsible for presenting the prestigious Peabody Award for electronic media through The Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
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.
