Welcome Events

Every new transfer student will be invited to participate in welcome events held at the beginning of both the fall and spring semesters.  These events connect you to other transfer students and the UGA community. During our spring 2018 New Student Welcome, we welcomed approximately 67 new Bulldogs to UGA. The new students heard from both the Dean of Students and the Student Government Association President, learned traditions from current students, and had fun hanging out with Hairy Dawg! Be on the lookout for your invitation to the fall 2018 New Student Welcome! Additionally, fall transfer students will have the opportunity to participate in Welcome UGA, a six-week long welcome experience.

Dawg Camp Connect

Participate in Dawg Camp Connect, “a dynamic program built specifically for up to 15 transfer students to help adjust seamlessly into their new university home. As implied by the name, participants will have opportunities to connect with UGA, connect with Athens, connect with valuable campus resources, and, most importantly, connect with one another in a meaningful way in order to enhance their networks on campus and their transition to the Bulldog family before classes start in the fall."
