FRESHMAN WELCOME

Welcome to UGA! The Freshman Welcome event is a joint partnership between the Student Alumni Association and Student Government Association to salute the newest class of Georgia Bulldogs. Held in Sanford Stadium, Freshman Welcome was created to instill a sense of belonging and pride amongst each new freshman class while having fun learning sacred university traditions and gameday chants, cheers, and songs! Incoming freshmen also receive their copy of the G Book to keep with them throughout their time at UGA.

The Class of 2019 Freshman Welcome will be held on Sunday, August 16. Don't miss out on food, traditions, and fun on the field before classes begin!

 

DINNER WITH A DOZEN DAWGS

One of SAA's signature networking programs, Dinner with a Dozen Dawgs pairs eleven students with an esteemed UGA graduate for dinner, conversation, and Bulldog comaraderie.

BEAT SHIRTS

Each football season, the Student Alumni Council hands out hundreds of T-Shirts to SAA donors to stir up excitement and rally the Bulldog faithful to victory over dreaded rivals! Not only do they make a great piece of gameday gear, but they also serve as excellent keepsakes of memorable Bulldog triumphs.

The 2016 Beat T-Shirt will be Alabama. Come pick up yours in Tate Plaza on Wednesday, September 30, 2015. 

Go Dawgs!

 

GHOST TOUR

Each year, as Halloween approaches...SAC hosts its annual Ghost Tour! The tour consists of a walk through North Campus, spotlighting some of the spookiest and most storied locations in at the university. Hear tales of the ghosts which are rumored to haunt Demosthenian Hall, The Lustrat House, Jackson Street Cemetary, and more.  

The Ghost Tour also serves as a philanthropic event as attendees are encouraged to bring canned food donations which are collected for the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia.

Ghost Tours will be held October 20-21, 2015 and will begin at the UGA Arch.

 

THE OFFICIAL UGA RING

The official UGA Class Ring is a symbol of the honor and traditions of UGA as well as your own excellence, integrity and accomplishments as a graduate. During Ring Days each fall, spring, and summer semester, seniors and eligible underclassmen with 60 or more hours can meet personally with a Balfour ring representative to order their ring as a lasting memento of their success at UGA.
