????It wasn't until this past summer that the realization that I was about to embark on my fourth and final year at the University of Georgia. Naturally, all the thoughts of graduation and the "real world" entered my mind...Will I find a job? Where will I end up? Do I even know what I want to do?

Then, the real question hit me, and I started to feel a wave of panic. I only have one more year left in Athens?!

Those familiar with Athens, GA will understand my concern; there's so much to experience here, and of course you can't do things just once! There is the great variety of restaurants that cater to the most diverse range of tastes as well as the famed music scene filled with incredible talent. You can't forget the athletic events that bring in thousands of the most devoted fans nor can you ignore the nightlife that provides young and old alike with the perfect way to unwind after a long week.

My name is Debbie Kuo, and as one of the two new interns for the Athens Convention and Visitors Bureau, I hope you will join me in my journey to pack in as much of what Athens has to offer as I can in these next several months.

As I mentioned before, I'm starting my senior year studying Marketing and International Business at UGA. I'm a big fan of food, travel, music, and trying new things, which makes Athens a wonderful city for me. I'm looking forward to finding new favorite places as well as revisiting old ones, and sharing all my experiences with you!

But before I get started exploring around Athens, I'm interested in your experiences with the city. Where are your favorite places to go? What do you love most about Athens?
