Admissions Interview: No - No Interview
Information Session: Yes - Very informative. Explained courses, workload, costs. Also explained post graduate schooling. The speakers did not bring up much about student life, though.
Campus Tour: Yes - The campus is AMAZING. I love the trees, the fall foliage, the greek archetecture. It was very beautiful and well kept. I could see myself living here easily.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Class was very interesting. I sat in a freshman psychology class with about 200 others and it was suprisingly easy to follow and understand. The prof. was enthusiastic but left right after lecture.

Campus Visit Notes for University of Georgia
Basically, I stayed with my friends in Russell the night before the tour. They're all in the same fraternity, and after spending the day at the Ramsey center, we went to a frat 'event' and I had a lot of fun. The next day, the tour and information sessions started and it was very intersting. I learned a lot. We rode the bus system, went out to the middle of Sanford stadium (an experience all in itself, at least for Dawgs like myself), and ate lunch. I would like to point out that North Campus is EXTREMELY beautiful. I loved being on campus, as all the facilities and buildings were well kept and clean. The showers in the dorms are OK, but not much privacy exists (trust me, you'll get close enough to these people so it won't matter). Greek life seems like a lot of fun, and most of the faculty knew a lot. (I had a whole narrative typed, but my browser did something, and it erased just this section for some reason and I didn't feel like re-typing the whole thing. So alas, this was abridged).
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
I didn't stay overnight at the hotel, but my parents did and said it was very nice. They said the pool closed at 8 though. Was weird. Forgot name of the hotel.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
There's a breathtaking Thai restaurant near campus that I'd advise anyone to take a look at. The usual fastfood places are particularly nice.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
The parking garage was nice though the fees can be outrageous if you're not a student. I think we parked in the North campus building. The bus system is very nice and the buses are clean.
