    Congrats. I was there in the early 90s & it's changed a lot but we had a blast. Beautiful campus & Brumby Beach was the highlight of every spring...eye candy galore. Back then living was cheap, beer was cheaper & the girls were.....well, fun to say the least. REM, WSP, Allgood, DMB, the music scene never let up. I had a final I couldn't miss one time & Pearl Jam was playing at legion field during one of their first big tours, that **** but I more than made up for it. All I can say is represent the Red & Black well & keep it classy when other teams come in, that's what separates us from fla. That & they just **** in general. Enjoy every minute because it goes by in the blink of an eye.

    Go Dawgs!

    The lawn by Brumby was full on bikini action when the weather warmed up. Had many near crashes in my CRX rubberneckin' & the horn honk miraculously resulted in more than one date..

    Congratulations! My time there was from 2005-2009 and I enjoyed every minute. It’s the first and last time you’re in an intensive learning environment. Take any classes that will interest you and choose a major you’ll enjoy. Take girls out on dates, join campus organizations and work hard. It’s the best 4 years of your life!

    I forgot to offer my congratulations as well. I know a lot of smart folks from good families who can't find their way in to UGA these days.

    Congrats. Remember that you only get this opportunity once, take advantage of those 4 years not just by working hard, but by making some memories too ;)

    I often said that if the Lord has mercy on me when I die I will go to Athens.

    Like others said, be active. But hit the books with intensity too. From the get go. Aim to get ahead of your peers academically, be challenged as if your academic competition was Mullen and Gus.

    Wasn't ever smart enough to enroll...but best to you my fellow Dawg.

    Keep your head on a swivel, the shorts and sundresses will certainly drive you insane

  • JimWallaceJimWallace Posts: 5,585 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Study two hours for every hour in the classroom.

    Everything else is easy if you do that.

    Everyone else is at least as smart as you are. The super geniuses with photographic memories don't have to study, but you're not one of them.

    Go, Dawgs!

  • DamnYankeeDawgDamnYankeeDawg Posts: 1,136 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Congrats! Good luck at the greatest (and oldest) public university our country has to offer.

    Go Dawgs!!

  • pocoyopocoyo Posts: 2,518 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    This^^^ @Dawg My son graduated from UGA in 2011. Always a great student. Encountered real academic culture shock his first semester. UGA is TOUGH. It is not glorified high school. If you're smart enough to get in, you're smart enough to do well. But do NOT think you can just cruise through. Good luck to you

    Congrats on being accepted!

  • JimWallaceJimWallace Posts: 5,585 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    My daughter will graduate in May. She's very smart and has always been a great student. She attended excellent magnet schools as a kid. Her SAT and ACT scores were great. She participated in demanding time consuming extracurriculars in high school.

    She works very hard to make good grades at Georgia because all of her peers in Athens are from the same background and have the smarts.

    I'm very proud of her success at the University of Georgia and of how hard she's worked. She knew going into it that she had to keep her Zell Miller to stay in Athens.

    Go, Dawgs!

    Congratulations @dawg ! Athens? Lemme put it this way. Half of my friends from the early ‘70s never left, mostly taking jobs at the school after graduating with BA/BS or taking a masters program or PhD. Amazing place to live as well as go to school. Have fun.

    Being accepted at UGA is an accomplishment particular being accepted into the freshman class.


    Go, Dawgs!
