What you love about UGA Engineering: 

I love the sense of community and family within our college and university as a whole. My classmates and my teachers genuinely care about my successes and support me in and outside of the classroom. Having this support makes the crazy hard engineering academics easier to tackle and makes celebrating the achievements far more fun.

Favorite spot in Athens: 

North Campus
