Game day pictureThe University of Georgia is one of the best universities in the southeast and the whole US. Ranking 48th of all National Universities in academics, dawgs care a lot about their schooling. Dawgs dedicate a lot of time to studying for their classes, but they still make time to have fun. The definition of a lot of Dawgs' spirit is to work hard and play hard. Whether it is meeting some friends downtown on a Friday or Saturday night or going to Sanford Stadium for a UGA game day there are countless activities to do in your freetime. You only get four years, so make sure to have some fun along with your studies while you're living in apartments near UGA.

UGA Gamedays

National Champions in 2021, need I say more? The University of Georgia has a top SEC football program making our games unforgettable. On Gameday you better be decked out in red and black because dawgs do not play when it comes to game days. Everyone and their parents at UGA come together for tailgates and the games. Tailgates are all over the city, parents included, so make sure they come to a game or two! Many students go to the bars where every tv will have the game on and you will hear the cheers from Sanford Stadium when you are heading down East Broad Street. Once you get into UGA be sure to check your UGA email a lot because an email will go out about getting tickets to attend the games. Freshman have priority for all home games, but still sign up in order to at least get 1 or 2. It is an unforgettable experience to be sitting in the student section of a Bulldog football game with your fellow dawgs surrounding you and cheering. You better get used to the chant, " GO DAWGS SIC ‘EM WOOF WOOF WOOF".
