Female Women's Studies Major C/O 2021
How would you describe the social scene?
There’s something for everyone and people are generally very nice. But, I would say there is a huge divide between Greek life and non-Greek life. If you’re in Greek life, then you’re in your own little bubble, I don’t even know what goes on in there. If you’re not in Greek life, there’s still a lot of variety for you. I think not being in Greek life has helped me meet more people who are like-minded and also different from me.
How strong are the Asian and People of Color communities on campus?
The People of Color community, in general, is pretty strong. Especially if racial or social justice issues come up, people will band together regardless of what race they are. The Asian community is very tight-knit for people within the same ethnic group, for example, Chinese with other Chinese people. Because we have such a huge international Asian population, people tend to branch off on their own. So, we’re connected but also divided.
How do you like the size of Georgia in terms of undergraduate enrollment? How was transitioning to a school with about [29,000] students?
At first, it was overwhelming because I wasn’t used to seeing that many people, but it’s actually turned out to be a blessing because there are so many people collaborate and learn from and so many different ideas that I can come across.
