A story that combines campus, alumni, sustainability, the Georgia Bulldogs, and local partnerships weaves the fabric held together by Community threads: It might be difficult to see on television or while attending a game in Sanford Stadium, but if you were to examine the University of Georgia’s football jerseys closely, you would see tokens from past games in the form of darned tears or re-stitched seams. These repairs tell the story of the…

This year, the University of Georgia celebrates the 100th anniversary of Homecoming. UGA’s first formal Homecoming event was held on Nov. 18, 1922 when alumni and students gathered on a Friday evening to listen to speeches from faculty, coaches, members of the football team and visiting alumni. This rally was followed by an evening of entertainment and dancing.  Welcome back to all of our alumni friends and families to what should be a fun…

Following on UGA's dominant performance against Arkansas, Beat Week is back with this week's upcoming game against Auburn.

Even as the Georgia Bulldogs gear up for one of the biggest games of the season against Notre Dame, our players find the time to balance athletics with their classes. In the world of college athletics, success has two meanings: athletes are expected to excel in their chosen sport, and required to achieve in the classroom. Student-athletes must learn time management skills to balance early-morning weight lifting sessions, late-night study circles…

Our colleagues in the UGA College of Education share a story about the new ways students study science and also, appropriately enough, about football: As it turns out, laws of physics that apply to gases are a difficult topic—students in the university’s General Chemistry class often find themselves fumbling the topic. But in the past year, students in the College of Education and the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences have tackled these…

For the second consecutive year, students from a variety of STEM disciplines will fill the lawn of the Miller Learning Center five hours leading up to kickoff for the Auburn game, from 2–7 p.m. on Nov. 10, to share their research in the STEMzone: This year’s booths will once again feature the breadth of research interests represented at UGA, with the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources offering introductions to a host of reptiles,…

When last we watched our inimitable heroes play for all the marbles, it was a January evening long ago but a steady memory and stirring inspiration in all the time since. Congratulations to the Georgia Bulldog football players, coaches, staff, band, cheerleaders, alumni and supporters around the globe and best of luck tonight. May your passes be straight, your runs swift and may your number be ONE when it's all said and done. #GoDawgs Image:…
