With every new school year, we look forward to what Franklin students, faculty and staff will contribute to the University community. Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Dean Alan Dorsey welcomes everyone back to the UGA campus this fall semester with this message:
"As we begin a new academic year, I want to welcome all of our new and returning students to campus, as well as all of our extraordinary faculty and staff. I am also proud to introduce and welcome our 2018-2019 Franklin College Student Ambassadors to the Franklin team. The presence of Franklin students...
The suitcases are stowed and the buses are packed; the sidewalks and the buildings are full of old friends and new faces because as of this morning, classes are in session. Welcome to the Class of 2022 and all of our returning students. This is the place, and this is how it all began.
Fancy pens or number 2 pencils, Grady, Franklin, Terry, Ag, FACS, pharmacy or forestry, best wishes for a great beginning to the semester to everyone.
Enthusiasm is everywhere and events already underway to welcome and acclimate new students to campus, starting today with International Student Orientation
Every day presents one or more events for our student to engage with various aspects of campus life, learn about the many organizations, clubs and groups at UGA, and find their path to a unique UGA experience. The city within the Classic City comes to life and the calendar of events runs throughout August as we kick off fall semester. So many great journeys beginning after the bags and boxes are unpacked - welcome everyone.
The Franklin Residential College, the only student-governed residential college at the University of Georgia, is entering its nineteenth year as faculty and staff gear up to welcome 90 Franklin Residential College (FRC) members to their home in Rutherford Hall. Our incoming transfer student and first-year members are showing their excitement through posts to FRC social media under the hashtags #frcintroduction and #frcnewmembers. We’re excited about the diverse range of majors represented, and we hope the online introductions allow students to connect with one another prior to move-in day...
UGA students are gathering Thursday at Tate Plaza from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Thank A Donor Day to show their appreciation for support of alumni and friends. At this celebration, students will have creative opportunities to thank those donors who have enriched their experiences at UGA. There will be prizes, photos with Hairy Dawg, music and more.
It's another beautiful spring day on campus. Our students make it all the better by spending a few minutes in Tate Plaza in appreciation of the ongoing philanthropy that keeps UGA on its strong upward trajectory.
