What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
The University of West Georgia is not just that local home- town college. Though this university allows for a small town experience where most students can drive 10 minutes down the road for a home cooked meal, it also creates many opportunities unlike the norm. For example, I am an above average student who knew no chance of paying for the highly appraised colleges of the day, but UWG took me in under a scholarship at 16 and is helping me by opening transfer scholarships to colleges beyond my very dreams,

UWG is a very nice small school that is usually best as a starting point for more in-depth careers, such as environmental engineering or art. The only problem that I have found is that the school is trying too hard to seem like the college to attend, and it's advertising campaign is a bit embarrassing. The teachers are usually really cool, though, but do make sure to ask others who have taken them before about their teaching style.
