Student Alumni Council Wraps Up Successful Fall Semester

Last week marked the end to another successful semester for the UGA Alumni Association Student Alumni Council (SAC), the student leadership group for the Student Alumni Association (SAA).

Since August, our amazing SAC members, led by President Shari McIntosh, have assisted with and planned many important student programs, including:

·         In partnership with SGA, welcoming more than 4,000 new freshmen with GBooks at the Class of 2016 Freshman Welcome event in Sanford Stadium

·         Hosting two North Campus ghost tours for more than 600 total attendees, and collecting 400 pounds of donated food items for the Northeast Georgia Food Bank.

·         Increasing Senior Signature donations by 400 percent compared to this time last year

·         Planning the inaugural SAC Alumni Tailgate on Nov. 3

·         Visiting 27 campus student organizations to encourage student giving to The University of Georgia

·         Distributing more than 600 Beat T-shirts before the Florida and SEC Championship football games

Let me also commend Assistant Director of Student Programs Evan Tighe ’08, ’11 and Student Programs Graduate Assistant Veronica Roman ’14 for their tireless leadership of this impressive group of students. They have helped guide SAC through an action-packed semester and the UGA Alumni Association could not have done it without them. Thanks, Evan and Veronica!

SAC members will return in the spring for another semester supporting the UGA Alumni Association, beginning with a spring retreat on Jan. 5. I wish all of them a relaxing, safe, and happy holiday break, and look forward to seeing their smiling faces around the Wray-Nicholson House in 2013.

The SAC and the UGA Alumni Association strive to enhance the relationships between students and alumni by representing and promoting university traditions, instilling pride, bolstering spirit, fostering community, and educating leaders. To learn more about the Student Alumni Council, CLICK HERE.

3rd Annual TEDxUGA is Friday, March 27

UGA is hosting its 3rd Annual TEDxUGA event in Tate Grand Hall on Friday, March 27 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. What is TEDx? TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUGA, where x = independently organized TED event. At the TEDxUGA event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Several UGA alumni will present at this year's TEDxUGA event:

  • Lemuel LaRoche (BSW '02, MSW '03)
  • Michelle Blue (BBA '13)
  • Julie Rushmore (PHD '13, DVM '17)
