I haven't enjoyed my time at West Georgia,Quite BrightOther
I haven't enjoyed my time at West Georgia, but I didn't really expect to. I knew that I was going to be here for one year to finish my core requirements and then transfer to a better university to do my major.

A lot of people here do that, it's a stepping stone school, really. If you stay here all four years, you'll see most of your friends leave to go somewhere else.

There is nothing to do on campus unless you're interested in frat parties and getting drunk off your ass (This school is #10 in the nation for most alcohol related arrests. Only the best go West!)Even the cops make fun of the student body for how generally stupid and absorbed in parties they are. Campus social life is lacking, and off campus life is nonexistent. If you want to do anything off campus plan on driving an hour into Atlanta, because there isn't shit to do near the University.

Also, the academics are kind of shit. Every class is extremely easy. I've taken 23 hours one semester and 21 the next and I haven't had to pull a single all nighter or anything. The classes are so easy that I am a freshman and I'm taking senior level classes. If you are looking for a school with a big party scene and easy academics, West might be for you.

This school is a "it is what youBrightUndecided
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'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.
