Official 2014 Game Watching Parties
It has been 10 years since David Greene (BBA ’04) last played Between the Hedges, but he remains connected to his alma mater as a faithful UGA alumnus. I was excited to hear that David will be broadcasting every Thursday from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. next door to the UGA Atlanta Alumni Center at Shula’s Restaurant Bar & Grill in Buckhead. The David Greene College Show will discuss major topics in college football, but will focus on the SEC and UGA. I was lucky to catch up with David last week to ask him a couple of questions about UGA and of course, his new show:
What is your favorite UGA tradition?
"As a player it was the Dawg Walk ... getting to hug your family and see all the crazy fans was always a great feeling before kickoff. As a fan, I love hearing the Battle Hymn soloist and seeing the video of former and current Dawgs right before the teams come out. If that doesn't give you chills, I don't know what will."
Everyone knows you for your record-breaking career as a UGA quarterback. Who outside of the UGA athletic department had the greatest impact on you?
"Shannon Jarvis, known as Coach Jarvis to me. Coach Jarvis was the receivers coach at my high school. When I committed to UGA, he gave me tapes from decades back and told me how important it was to know the history of Georgia football. Looking back, I think that had a big impact on my love and respect for the university and the football program. We used to talk on the phone every Friday night before football games. I always looked forward to those conversations because it gave me an opportunity to zoom out, forget about the stress and grind that football brings and reflect on how blessed I was."
As a client executive for Seacrest Partners, what does it mean to you that your company has been honored on the Bulldog 100 list for the past few years as one of the fastest growing Bulldog-owned businesses?
"It means a great deal to me. As fortunate as I was to play on great football teams at UGA, I'm equally as fortunate to work on the Seacrest Partners team. Our company has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years and it's a direct correlation of working alongside great people and true professionals."
What do you currently do to stay connected to the university and the Bulldog Nation?
"92.9 The Game has given me an excellent platform to host the David Greene College Show. Over the last few years, I've spoken to UGA Alumni Corporate Chapters and helped with the Tailgate with Terry event. From time to time, I also speak on behalf of the Georgia Bulldog Club around the state. Lastly, I keep in touch with the coaching staff, administrators and former players as much as possible.
Tell us about the David Greene College Show and what we can expect from it.
"When you tune into the show, you can expect to hear opinions on all the major topics surrounding college football. The show will be weighed heavily on the SEC, with a strong focus on UGA. Even though I'm clearly a Dawg for life, you can expect to hear my honest opinion on topics surrounding the UGA program, both good and bad. You will also hear from many former UGA football players. Football is the ultimate team game, and I wouldn't have the opportunity to do this show if it wasn't for these guys. I want to hear their opinions as well as give college football fans an opportunity to hear from some of the greats."
I hope you will take the time to stop by Shula's or tune into 92.9 The Game from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays to support this great Bulldog. And don't forget to follow the show on twitter at www.twitter.com/davidgreeneshow.

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.
The University of Georgia will host its second annual Return to the Arch Alumni Seminar, a three-day educational gathering for UGA alumni and friends, from May 1-3, 2015. This year's theme is "Food for Thought" and will feature lectures, tours and interactive seminars that showcase the best that UGA has to offer. Come prepared with open minds and empty stomachs as you experience a fun, food-filled weekend on campus.
Seminar highlights include:
- A reception and dinner with Food Network star and alumnus Alton Brown (AB '04)
- Exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of campus
- Presentations from leading UGA faculty members
- Address by Peter Dale (ABJ '99), owner/chef of The National in Athens, 2012 Food & Wine's "People's Best New Chef-Southeast"
- A farm-to-table dinner under the stars on Herty Field
The registration fee for this three-day seminar is $290 per person, which includes all meals, beverages, transportation, seminars and special activities. It does not include hotel accommodations.
A supplemental dining package for non-attendee spouses/guests may be purchased for $115. This includes the Friday reception and dinner with Alton Brown, the Saturday reception and Ffarm-to-table dinner on Herty Field, and a local lunch market on Sunday.
Registration for the Dawg Trot 5K for Scholarships has been extended to Monday, March 16.
Join hundreds of UGA alumni and friends for one of Athens' largest 5K races on Saturday, March 21!
