I transferred here from Kennesaw State University and I love it here at UGA. My mom graduated from here, and so did her brother and my cousin, so it's cool to carry on the family tradition. I love my roommates and my apartment - Vandiver in ECV. The dining halls are great, I have an on-campus job, the professors are amazing - I wish I could live here forever!

Overall, the University of Georgia is an excellent university that strives to turn students into adults in a challenging, yet encouraging manner. Living in the dorms is definitely a memorable experience as you have some of the best times meeting people there.
