News and Updates
Dawgs Ditch the Dumpster and Donate makes a big impact
We had a record number of volunteers with more than 20 donation sites across campus. The Athens Homeless Shelter received five car loads of donations. Project Save, America's Thrift Habitat for Humanity as well as Goodwill of North Georgia received truckloads of donations. Donation from residents greatly reduced our solid waste impact on our local landfill.
Coming up in August, Hunker Down with Housing
On August 5 - 6, we will welcome new and returning students during Hunker Down with Housing. This is a program to streamline the residence hall move-in process for students and their families.
