UGA students are gathering Thursday at Tate Plaza from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Thank A Donor Day to show their appreciation for support of alumni and friends. At this celebration, students will have creative opportunities to thank those donors who have enriched their experiences at UGA. There will be prizes, photos with Hairy Dawg, music and more.

It's another beautiful spring day on campus. Our students make it all the better by spending a few minutes in Tate Plaza in appreciation of the ongoing philanthropy that keeps UGA on its strong upward trajectory.

Thank you,...
