Reasons to attend and to not attend University of Georgia

To Attend

  • “Athens is an amazing town. There are so many good restaurants and there’s a really fun nightlife. It’s also a great location because Atlanta is accessible and you can go 30-minutes outside of Atlanta and be in the country.”
  • “The football culture is unlike anything else. Everyone lives and breathes UGA Football.”
  • “There is always something to do and you’ll feel welcome here.”
  • “The campus is beautiful. I’m a very nature-oriented person, so having a school with good scenery has been important for mental health.”
  • “There are a lot of prominent people on campus that care about my opinion. Being Queer, Black, and a woman, I appreciate that UGA tries to put an effort in, even if it’s not always the best.”
  • “In-state tuition. It’s such a bonus that Georgia offers the HOPE Scholarship.” [In Fall 2018, total costs for in-state students was $26,688.]

To Not Attend

  • “Sometimes people get lost in the mix. If you don’t put yourself out there and get out of your comfort zone, you can get lost.”
  • “If you’re not good at balancing nightlife and Greek life with academics.”
  • “There are really big classes freshman year.”
  • “If you’re looking for somewhere that is a bit more prestigious or difficult academically. Depending on what your major is, it may not be the best school.”
  • “The mental health program’s budget is really limited. There is a limited number of sessions you can go to. If you have a lot of mental health conditions, UGA may not be the place for you unless you have a really good lead on who to speak to for counseling.”
  • “If someone is afraid that they wouldn’t fit in based on their ethnicity, because it’s mostly White. This didn’t affect my experience, but I understand I don’t represent every person of color. I would encourage someone to stick this out.” [About 69% of undergraduates are White and about 8% are Black.]
