The UGA motto espouses a commitment to service. Dawg Day of Service seeks to realize the university’s commitment through a campus-wide, visible day of service event open to the entire University of Georgia community. Participants will volunteer at different sites around the Athens-Clarke County area where they will have the chance to network and interact with students, community members, and staff, while engaging in meaningful service and addressing community needs.
The UGA String Project will hold an informational open house and instrument "petting zoo." This is a chance to meet the String Project staff, hear and try out the various instruments offered for instruction and get information about instrument rental.
More than 300 of the 800+ registered student organizations on campus will host information tables to recruit new members.
