Why U of G students think we're #1

Ever wonder what our students love about studying at U of G? We asked several current students “Why is U of G #1 for you?” – Here’s what they had to say!


  • The food – it’s amazing!

  • Our community and our beautiful campus! (this point was repeated over, and over, and OVER again by multiple students!)
  • My program feels like a family – not competitive, but collaborative.

  • U of G is incredibly welcoming, diverse AND inclusive!
  • I feel like I’m at home every time I’m on campus.
