    UGA is notorious for having some of the best dining hall food! We've got 4 dining halls on main campus and the Bulldog Cafe with Chick-Fil-A and Panda Express. There's also a dining hall on the Health Sciences campus that specializes in sandwiches and calzones. The dining halls offer all sorts of foods from buffet style home-cooking to pizza, salad, Moe's-style mexican, pasta, Asian cuisine, 24 hour breakfast, and burgers. The only negative thing I can say about the dining halls is that only two of them are open on the weekends, but they are the two biggest ones. Athens is also known for all of its different restaurants and delicious foods!

    There are five dining halls, and each one has good food. In each dining hall, there is a main entree line that has different options every day, as well as a burger line and salad bar. Snelling is open 24 hours Monday-Thursday and has pizza and phillly cheesesteaks. Bolton is two stories and has a breakfast station as well. In addition to the dining halls, there many retail options, including a Starbucks, Chickfila, Barberitos, Panda Express, and a burger place in the student center, as well as more around campus.

    The meal plan food is amazing, but if you're not up for what they're serving there are tons of different off-campus places to eat.

    The food is very high quality here at UGA; however, it does get monotonous. I enjoyed being on meal plan my first year at UGA and recommend that first year student buy the meal plan. You get a lot of money for your buck! There are not any limitations on how many times you can go to the dinning hall or how much you can eat. There are also five dinning halls to choose from, so you can mix it up some.

    if you are not on a meal plan, you will most likely be eating the same things if you want to save on money as other meals tend to be on the more expensive side. however, if you are on the meal plan, the food they provide in the dining halls are great and provide a great variety.

    There are Japanese restaurants in Athens that I would stack up against any. Be sure to try the one that is located behind the Georgia Game day Condominiums. Also, Senior Soles is a great Mexican restaurant, Order the loaded Nachos. Very reasonably priced too.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    I am not a Greek life member, but I have some friends who are and they love it. Greek life isn't for everyone, but it is a great way to make friends and find a family. You also get to participate in fun activities put on by the sororities and fraternities like formals and date nights. Some people might think that at UGA you have to be in Greek life or else you'll have no social life and not make any friends, but that's totally not true! I have had a great experience at UGA without being in a sorority. I have made a ton of friends, some in Greek life and some not. If Greek life isn't your thing or you're on the fence about it, you absolutely don't have to do it to have a great time at UGA.

    I am not able to rate Greek life due to my lack of experience with the area. However, I have heard from others that Greek life at UGA is very big and beneficial to the community. I have not seen how Greek life benefits the community, but I will take other's word for it. In my experiences so far, I have learned to see Greek life as somewhat shallow and a little annoying. The process to join a chapter is very extensive and is usually simply based off looks and likability. Usually, people brag about how attractive a certain sorority or fraternity is, which is something that I do not personally agree with.

    The Greek life at UGA is teeming with plenty of sororities and fraternities to choose from and get involved with. The dances, parties and socials they hold are always so fun and in neat locations (Georgia Theater, Classics Center). Also, the prestige of the names of these frats and sororities helps carry on for jobs and future employment. Greek life includes anyone and everyone with options for the most committed to the least involved. They support charities and foundations that bring a sense of pride to the name of the Greek life and the houses are BEAUTIFUL with their southern charm and location. Its a great addition and a definite plus at the University of Georgia.

    The presence of Greeks are everywhere on campus. From philanthropies to the social scene, you'll be able to find people wearing letters wherever you go. We don't stereotypically party like you see in the movies though. The Greeks here on campus have the highest GPA among the entire school and are seen achieving great things in the business world!

    Georgia is pretty neutral in Greek life. If you want to go Greek you can at Georgia. At the same time it's easy to attend Georgia and not be involved and around Greek life.

    Greek life is a really big deal at the University of Georgia, but even people that aren't in Greek life still have lots of friends and fun. Don't worry about how it will affect your social life, you'll figure it out.
