    • Combining theatre and speech-language pathology has allowed amazing student Kelsey Brown to put a unique stamp on her undergraduate career:

      I chose to attend UGA because…

      I applied to 12 schools for undergraduate. I had no idea where I wanted to go; just what I wanted to do. I toured schools and communication disorders programs all over. I liked that the CMSD program here is placed in the College of Education and I loved the spirit of students and faculty. Everyone I talked to wanted to be here and genuinely felt like they were in the right place. I was fortunate to get a great scholarship and was accepted into the Honors program. It just seemed like the best fit, and I’ve never regretted my decision.

      My favorite things to do on campus are…

      I try to see as much theatre as possible. Between the University Theatre season and the myriad student groups, the theatre department always has something fun going on. Groups like Children’s Theatre Troupe, Thalian Blackfriars, Next Act, Improv Athens and the Baptist Christian Ministries Dinner Theatre have put on some great work both on campus and off, and I love watching them do what they love to do.

      My friends and I have also taken a couple of cooking classes at the Health Center. They are a great way to learn about incorporating healthy choices in the college diet, and I wish I had time to go every month.

      Our campus attracts fantastic students who are going to excel at whatever they choose to do. This level of creative engagement coalescing on campus is the beating heart of America's public universities and students like Kelsey help nudge UGA toward the top of that distinguished field.
