The UGA Alumni Association is proud to partner with the Office of Admissions to provide opportunities for alumni and friends to support the recruitment activities taking place at the university.
Represent UGA at a College Fair
UGA attracts students from across the United States and the world. Consider volunteering to educate high school students in your area about the UGA admissions process. The UGA Alumni Association offers several training sessions to familiarize interested volunteers with the admissions process and frequently asked questions.
- Training takes place in late summer
- College fairs are held in the fall and spring
Write Accepted Students in Your Area
UGA’s “Give That Dawg a Bone” card writing campaign is a great way for alumni to encourage high school students to choose UGA. Each campaign runs from mid-December through early April.
Volunteers are needed to host local receptions for admitted students. Alumni can help students learn more about UGA and directly improve their likelihood to enroll.
- These events are held in the spring
