Support students - get your UGA specialty tag today!

As I drive around this beautiful state, I’m struck by how many of the newly designed UGA car tags I see. It seems as if the iconic “power G” plates are everywhere. I have mine. Do you have yours? The process is easy. Just ask for the new UGA plate the next time you renew your tag.  

You may wonder if there’s a particular reason to get a new UGA tag. (As if Bulldog fans need a reason to display their affection for UGA.) As a matter of fact, there is. For each plate on the road, $10 annually goes to need-based scholarships funded through the UGA Foundation. That alone should provide you with enough incentive to get the new tag.  

Whether you’re an alumnus of UGA or just a fan, you can sport the university’s new specialty plate and drive around with pride. It will look sharp on your vehicle, but most importantly, it’s an easy way to give back to the university you love by impacting the lives of our students. It’s like getting two for the price of one! 

Get your new specialty plate today and support need-based scholarships at UGA. For more information, 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)
  • Chris Dixon (ABJ '89, MMC '95)
  • Lisa Taylor (JD '01)

Won't be in Athens or missed out on tickets for the event? TEDxUGA will be livestreamed begining at 2:00 p.m. on Friday. This will be a great opportunity for alumni and friends to participate and engage from across the country. You can also interact with the event on Twitter.
