This Is What A Saturday In Athens Is Like

Ain't nothin' finer in the land!

513

When you go to school in the south, you learn to love football. Even if you've never taken any interest to it before. It's part of the culture. So, if you're thinking about going to UGA, here are what your fall Saturdays will look like in Athens.

College Colors

Giphy

The minute you step out of your residence hall, you will see everyone dressed up in Georgia's colors. You'll see little girls with cheerleading outfits and little boys with helmets. You'll see college girls dressed in their finest Georgia colors. There's nothing like a sea of red and black.

Tailgates

Giphy

Tailgates are a gameday necessity. They clear student parking lots to make room for tailgates. Along with the tailgates come the food. Everywhere you go, you get the smell of burgers and hot dogs. Even the Bolton Dining Commons serves them.

Parking

There is none.

The Tradition

Giphy

Graduates will take pictures walking under the arch and you'll hear the constant ringing of the chapel bell. You'll see alumni everywhere partaking in old traditions and visiting their favorite places around campus.

Uga

He's only the greatest college mascot in the country.

Sanford Stadium

Giphy

Make sure to get to the game early, to see the before-kickoff traditions that make you proud to be a Georgia Bulldog. If you're lucky enough to attend a night game, you'll get to see my favorite Sanford Stadium tradition: light up Sanford. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the entire stadium turns on their phone lights as the band plays Krypton.

Dawg Fans

Giphy

No matter where you go in Athens, you'll be sure to run into a fan shouting "Go Dawgs"

And the only correct response is....

Go Dawgs!

Flexibility is an important part of life. Yes, you need to be able to go with the flow and adjust when needed, but literal, physical flexibility is equally handy. Not only does increased flexibility keep you safe from injury each time you work out, but a good stretch session is incredibly soothing after a long day. Your body goes through a lot! It needs to cool down and get loose after all the activities you put it through.
