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.

We made a roadtrip to Athens to see the campus and stadium. It is certainly placed in the middle of the beautiful UGA campus. I can't imagine how congested traffic must be on gameday! The bus system, though, helps with traffic control A beautiful old stadium in the heart os SEC country.

Big stadium right on the East side of the campus. Across the street conveniently located is the college book store. My son was disappointed Fe couldn't go inside. It was not football season and the stadium was locked. Either way he had fun checking out the massive stadium.

What can I say about this iconic place that hasn't already been said? Sanford Stadium is like no other. I simply cannot imagine a better place to spend a Saturday with your family than in Athens, Georgia. This is like going to a family reunion with 92,000 of your closest family and friends. Parking is always an issue in Athens,... More

Opening with the Dawg Walk by the famous Red Coat Marching Band, the excitement of the day along with all the enthusiasm of the student body is something you should experience first hand. The walkway outside the Stadium is the perfect setting for the grand entrance of the team, cheer leaders and coaches as the Band surrounds them and the... More

I see all of the reviews. I can understand the high ratings in relation to the experience at the stadium. But the stadium itself, well, it is just a stadium in the middle of a very large campus. Nothing special about it design or architecture.
