Dawgs Donate in a Major Way!

A partnership between University Housing, UGA Hillel and Goodwill of North Georgia resulted in the collection of 30,407 pounds of donations from 11 locations around campus during spring move out. That amount is more than twice the amount of last year's donations, which were valued at more than $20,000.

Nearly 60 student volunteers, along with Goodwill of North Georgia employees, worked for nearly two weeks during move out to make the program a success. It is estimated that the donations will help fund approximately 1,000 hours of job training. Check out this interactive infograph for a full #DawgsDonate breakdown:

There's No Place Like... HERE!

Our new #GODAWGS shirt will
be perfect on Game Days!
We know you’re going to miss your home away from home this summer (we’ll miss you, too!) so we’ve come up with a genius #TBT (Throwback Thursday) contest to help pass the time. We'll share the photos and you share the memories—and be entered to win some amazing UGA SWAG!

Here's how it works:

On Thursdays this summer we’ll post a #TBT photo on social media. In the comments below, share your memories about the location featured in the photo and you'll be entered to win cool housing SWAG, including our newly designed #GODAWGS shirt! It's that simple. 

Here's why it rocks:

If you're one of the lucky commenters selected to win SWAG, we'll mail it to your summer address so you can have a piece of your home away from home—at home! Or at the beach, at your internship... you get the idea! 

Stay tuned—the fun starts on May 15 and ends on July 31, 2014. Here's a sneak peek of our first #TBT photo:

We can't wait to hear about the memories you made at the arch!
