I agree that living off campus can certainly offer savings (at any college). I also agree that the cost of attendance on the website often overestimates other living expenses (at any college). However, I do not see anything about Greek dues on the UGA COA page (unless buried in the fine print I’m not taking time to read). That is a personal decision and I would not expect that on the COA page.
Regardless, and I may have misread the previous posts, I thought the comment I was responding to was specifically about the fees line item. And I have no skin in the game. I was simply curious since it was brought up. You’ve had a student on campus in recent years so I trust you know a realistic COA better than anyone. But I did not think that was the topic at hand.
