Welcome, Class of 2023

Alan Flurry

It's the first day at UGA for many, including 5,500 incoming freshman in the Class of 2023. Welcome to all and good luck on a day that can be exhilarating, intimidating and yet joyous all the same. The journey metaphor is appropriate, as students begin a profound and lasting experience, determined as much by how as where the journey takes them.

In that spirit, we offer encouragement for embracing healthy habits toward success on campus - and beyond.

Good luck to all of our new and returning students, who have all made it to an extraordinary place at an amazing time. Do great things. Practice moderation. Strive for excellence, not perfection.
