The UGA Alumni Association
New York City Chapter invites you to
Special Alumni Events Surrounding the Peabody Awards in NYC
 
Join the UGA Alumni Association for three special events taking place during the week of the Peabody Awards: a tour of the 9/11 Memorial, a private tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a Bulldog Breakfast Club at Studio Laura Loving.

These gatherings will be great opportunities to connect with other UGA alumni and friends who live in the New York City area or who are in town for the Peabody Awards.

9/11 Memorial Tour
9/11 Memorial
Saturday, May 18, 2013
11:00 a.m. to noon


Join UGA alumni and friends for a group tour of the National September 11 Memorial on Saturday, May 18. The tour will be led by UGA College of Environment and Design Dean Daniel Nadenicek and Georgia Tech Professor Emeritus Doug Allen (BLA '71).

The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

This special tour will discuss the international competition held in 2003 to select a design for the memorial. One of Allen’s former students, Michael Arad, won the design award for the memorial from more than 5,200 entries.
