"Their difficulties have various sources—personal issues, learning styles, time management issues, choice of major—but whatever the nature of the challenge, OTAS works to help them identify the cause and find a solution that will put them on track for graduation," said Diane Miller, director of the Office of Student Academic Services in the Franklin College.

It can be an overwhelming experience, as we well understand, though orientation has been designed with this in mind.

"I've learned a lot about being a vet and other careers," she said. Precisely so. Hands-on experience with a variety of subject matter allows students to think broadly about their future, even if they have already decided on a career. Refining our ideas about what we want to do and the best route for our talents is one of the great luxuries [and responsibilities] students enjoy at UGA. The Franklin College plays a crucial role in thse…

Seven University of Georgia students accepted international travel-study grants from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the 2013-2014 academic year. Five of the students are majors in Franklin College departments and it is always great to see how specific students have designed their academic experience around achieving particular goals and how a liberal arts major fits into that goal. Whether they are in the business schol or studying…
