Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent campus, one of the oldest in US. Near to a major city - Atlanta. Because the University is little away from Atlanta, not many companies come on campus for recruiting. Also, the small class size works as both a pro and a con. While students can have in dept conversations and hence bonding with fellow classmates and the faculty, it a major turn off for companies recruiting on campus as they seek more number of candidates.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2014

The Nonprofit Program at UGA has several rather large "pros" the first being it's only a year long program, the second being that class sizes are very small (8-12) so you get one on one attention every class, the third is that classes don't give tests or papers instead we do applicable projects. In a grantwriting class you will write and submit a grant, in fundraising you will write and implement a fundraising plan, etc. One "con" is that the program is so short, it's just enough, but it makes forming lastly relationships with other student hard because they turn over each semester.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The Terry College of Business Professional MBA Program is excellent for the working professional who seeks a graduate program that will allow them to maintain their standard of living by working and attending school. The work load is pretty intense and you definitely have to be focused with superb time-management skills. The staff, both administrative and teaching, are accessible and helpful. The program's mix of in-class and distance learning is perfect for the working professional. I highly recommend the program.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is amazing because you can build your own degree almost with the strength and conditioning masters. The research that takes place in the department is top notch and always looks to be translational to the real world. Lastly the faculty and staff are all willing to help any student of any level achieve their education goals.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is great at helping students understand the theories that lay the foundations for the public sector. I believe I am getting the best education in this field along with wonderful internships that I have gotten through the network of my peers. One downside is this program does not always teach technical or practical skills such as quantitative analysis of programs or comprehensive statistic courses, and a student could come through this program and never learn these skills, which I believe are crucial in public administration. I would definitely do this over again if given the choice.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: There are some really fantastic professors here who I admire and who are really devoted to teaching. Also, Athens is a nice little town to live for four years. Cons: During your clinical rotation year you'll spend more time doing paper work or kennel work than anything else. And it will often come at the expense of learning actual medicine.
