UGA Days Kick Off in Columbus, Georgia

Last night, the UGA Alumni Association and the UGA Athletic Association hosted UGA Day in Columbus – the first stop on the 2013 UGA Days tour. It was a great time and I enjoyed spending the evening with such a wonderful group of passionate alumni and friends in the Columbus, Georgia, area.

The remaining UGA Days will take place between now and July. Host Chuck Dowdle, Head Football Coach Mark Richt, Head Basketball Coach Mark Fox, Head Swim & Dive Coach Jack Bauerle, UGA administrators and other special guests from the University will tour the cities below to share their insights into UGA's upcoming seasons, as well as the latest news from the University.

Tomorrow, we’ll be in Dallas-Fort Worth. Online registration is closed, but we invite you to still attend and register tomorrow evening.

Next Thursday, UGA Day returns to Macon, where you are invited to join other Macon-area alumni and friends at Walnut Creek Shooting Preserve – owned by 2012 Terry College of Business Distinguished Alumni Award Winner W.E. “Brother” Stewart (BBA ’74) We're painting Macon red and black, and we want you to be a part of it!

Thinc. at UGA Entrepreneurial Week

Successful entrepreneurs, including UGA graduates, will share their success stories and lessons learned as part of Thinc. Entrepreneurial Week, now through April 17. The Thinc. initiative is designed to help students, faculty and staff see the world of opportunities both local and global, and to start something in response.

That something might be a new for-profit company or a not-for-profit social venture. It might change something in your own neighborhood or community, or it might change the world.

In addition to the “Starting Points” entrepreneur panel, this year’s Thinc. Entrepreneurial Week will feature a “give back” hackathon; a talk on breakthrough innovation by David Butler, Coca-Cola vice president of innovation and entrepreneurship; a collaborative innovation competition; an extreme networking session, events related to social entrepreneurship, and a local arts and culture business summit.  

Please visit thinc.uga.edu for a full calendar of events, profiles of UGA students, faculty, staff and alumni entrepreneurs and all the information you need to get the most out of Thinc.
