A Student’s View: Alex is a senior at UGA and pursuing a Psychology major. After a recent interview with our friend, Alex, we learned he loves the sense of community on campus at UGA, how there are always student organization events in Tate Plaza and how involved the student body can be! If Alex could change anything about UGA, he would add a couple more busses to the routes and update the interior of some of the classroom buildings. Overall, Alex continues to have a great experience at UGA!
