The excitement starts when you approach the stadium. Security is awesome and helpful. Restrooms are kept as clean as possible with 92,000 people in attendance. Food lines could be shorter but just part of it. Security is quick to deal with obnoxiously drunk fans and the whole experience is amazing. Go Dawgs!!!

I started going to Georgia football games at Sanford Stadium before the addition of the first upper decks in the 1960's. Without question there is no other stadium that can match it for the college football experience. Even if you aren't a football fan you should make it a point to spend a Saturday between the hedges.

My wife is a HUGE NCAA sports fan (Football and Basketball). Lately our trips always involve stopping at universities and finding the stadiums (I think that will be our agenda for retirement travels). Walking the campus was great and when we finally found the Stadium it was a really nice stadium and worth the nice walk on a hot and... More

Been coming to the stadium for over 45 years. Being here on game day brings back memories, chills and a few tears. After traveling to most other SEC schools, this stadium and campus is at the top. History and old campus brings you back again and again.

Just walking around the outside and on the bridge at Sanford Drive is just awesome. It's a focal point on the campus and no tour or walk at UGA is complete without going to Sanford Stadium.
