| This is a school were you get up in the morning go to class. Go back to your dorm study, go get some food, go back to your dorm and sleep. The social atmosphere is horrible. If you are not a part of Greek Life on campus you will have a very limited pool of friends, your roommate and maybe 2 other people. It is because of the way the buildings are layed out. You have the outside door, then a kitchen area then another door for your room. Every building on campus is designed this way. If you were to walk out of your room at noon the hallways would be empty. The school has tried to run "parties" on campus but they are very underdeveloped and very boring. If you are looking for "College Life" go somewhere else. This please is snoozeville. |

| UWG is quickly turning into a degree mill and is losing quality professors at an astounding rate. Most of the school's money seems to be spent on unneeded buildings, advertising campaigns, football stadium, etc. The school does not seem interested in investing in its professors or infrastructure. The internet here is on par with the slowest in the nation and is unusable on many occasions. This is unacceptable at any university, especially one that has embraced paperless and partial/fully online classes.|
Dealing with most of the departments is hell (with the exception of the post office, those ladies are on the ball!) If you live on campus, expect to be swindled out of your money. The housing department is a mess and the bursar's office seems to want to make it nearly impossible to pay fines (certain fines cant be paid online, sometimes they can be paid by phone, sometimes not. some have to be paid in cash in person.) They will not hesitate to send you to collections over minor fines that are easy to overlook and can be assessed arbitrarily and without proof. I have been in both offices and been told lies straight to my face, just so they don't have to deal with the issues at hand.
The cops here are terrible for the most part. There are a couple that are genuinely good, but the bad eggs seem to out way the good. Me and many of my friends have been pulled over several times for our licence plate lights being out (they weren't) and then been breathalyzed and harassed. They assume everyone is guilty and have the legal authority to search you and your house WITHOUT a warrant (if you live in campus owned housing)! They love to remind you of this and will use it to threaten you for cooperation and information. This is only true for the campus pd.
I came to this college for an education and everyday I see the value of my future degree decrease. I see large percentages of students in my major graduate easily without having understanding of many beginner principles. These people are graduating severely under-prepared for the jobs they will be looking for out of college. It won't be long before employers turn UWG graduates away simply because of their education (much like what has happened with Columbus state in many occasions).I'm hoping the new president turns things around. Carrollton is not a bad place and I have many great memories from my time here at UWG. If the college would stop trying to be a "destination" and actually invest in its students, infrastructure, and professors, this college could be a great place.

| This school is a "it is what you make it" school. Coming here without a car is not the best idea unless you have great connections or an adventurous mind in terms of staying on campus and finding stuff to do. The campus itself is very boring. Even though the Student Activities Council finds things for the students to do, it doesn't really make up for the fact that this campus is still boring as heck. And the campus smells really bad on rainy days, cold days, hot days...pretty much every day. If you have really sensitive lungs I would advise you to not go here. |
As far as the social life goes..the people here are pretty nice and some what approachable. You pick and choose your friends depending on the type of social life you wish to have. You have the party people, the anime/character people, the people who are friends with everyone, the people who are only friends with their frat/ soror members, etc. I could go on.It just is what it is.
The people here party ALOT! (And throw endless kickbacks) If you are some one who takes your education serious then A. Pick and choose your friends wisely. Don't get me wrong, the parties here are so much fun but if you are someone who likes to take your education serious then your best bet is to of course put that first and the parties aside. They promote like crazy and the parties can be somewhat addicting. You have fun at one..it's like you want to go to all.
Education wise..the level of course work here is not really hard at all depending on your study skills and the type of school you came from. The teachers really care and they have multiple resources for the students in case they need help in a particular subject. This campus is becoming popular by the semester and year so pick and choose wisely. The school is not really hard to get into compared to other surrounding schools but going here is not so bad. You just have to make it worth while and you will end up having fun and coming out with good grades...if all works out that way.
