The double major in biology and psychology from Lawrenceville cites the Dawg Camp, Freshman Forum and the UGA Visitors Center as the having the biggest impacts on his UGA experience: Dawg Camp helped me open up to all the things UGA had to offer.

Very nice feature on the UGA homepage this week about an Institute of Higher Education program that sends recent college graduates to high schools in disadvantaged Georgia communities to advise students on preparing for college.
