University of Georgia (UGA) is a public research university that has its main campus situated in Athens, Georgia. It has made a mark in history as the first public college in the United States that is state-supported. It’s also a sea- and land-grant university, which is why it’s active in participating in research and promotion of sea- and agricultural-based programs.
The university is renowned for its graduate programs in its School of Law and College of Education. Its admission process is classified as “Highly Selective,” which is the highest classification in the category, by the ACT Assessment Student Report. That is because many factors are considered aside from high school grades when making admission decisions.
Founded on January 27, 1785, the University of Georgia is one of the oldest public universities in the U.S. However, only after 16 years did the construction of the UGA commenced because it was then that land was purchased to build the school on. The first school building was built in 1802 and the first batch of students was able to graduate in 1804.
The UGA has 17 colleges and schools, which were titled in such a way to distinguish them from the university. The university’s main campus is a congregation of 465 buildings that cover about 762 acres. Aside from that, the University of Georgia also owns a total of 39,743 acres of land in 31 counties across the state. There are five main campuses—North Campus, South Campus, Central Campus, East Campus, and West Campus. There are also off-campus facilities, such as the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.
Student culture is rich in UGA as it has registered about 800 student organizations, honor societies, cultural groups, religious groups, volunteer, philanthropic groups, student government organizations, and more. The Department of University Housing acts as the overseer for the student housing at the university. The on-campus housing is composed of seven communities—Brumby, Creswell, Reed, Hill, Russell, Myers, and the East Campus Village.
The University of Georgia has its fair share of distinguished attendees and alumni, with some of them holding important government positions. Many members of the US Supreme Court, US House of Representatives members, US Cabinet members, governors, ambassadors, federal judges, and US Senate members attended the school. Aside from them, various alumni also left their footprint by being the CEOs or chairmen of Fortune 500 companies, charitable organizations, and banks.
