G Book

Class of 2021 G Book

The G Book is the University of Georgia’s traditions handbook.

The G Book, updated each year by a team of passionate student editors, boasts 20 traditions – both old and new – in which students are encouraged to participate. Students are encouraged to preserve the memory of each tradition by snapping a photo or collecting a memento to insert into their G Books. Not only does the G Book document each student’s personal UGA experience, but it helps protect the traditions that make UGA special.

Tradition Keepers

When complete, the G Book tells each student’s personal UGA story. In addition, it identifies the most passionate of Bulldogs.

Students who complete all 20 traditions included in the G Book are among the Bulldog elite and earn the title “Tradition Keeper.” Here’s how:

  1. Dust off your G Book or pick up a new one from the Wray-Nicholson House (298 South Hull Street) on campus.
  2. Review the traditions and identify the ones that you are interested in completing. Plan ahead – some traditions only happen once a year!
  3. Once you a complete a tradition, capture a photograph of the experience or keep a memento that can added to your G Book.
  4. As you complete your traditions, note the following milestones to celebrate your commitment to UGA:
    • After 5 traditions – Official UGA Tradition Keeper button
    • After 10 traditions – Official UGA Tradition Keeper lapel pin (perfect for interviews!)
    • After 15 traditions – Official UGA Tradition Keeper T-shirt
    • After 20 traditions – Personal Tradition Keeper plaque

To check on your Tradition Keeper status and/or receive your award(s), stop by the UGA Alumni Association office in the Wray-Nicholson House or email saa@uga.edu to find out when a SAA Tradition Keeper check-in table will be set up on campus.
