First-Years: Share your F1RST LOOK at UGA!

In the coming weeks, you’re going to have a lot of firsts: your first night sleeping in a residence hall, your first time eating in a dining hall, your first time meeting your roommate, or your first time exploring your new college campus as an accepted student.

Last year, we were able to follow Krista, a first-year student from Villa Rica, Ga., as she went through orientation and moved in to Oglethorpe House. This summer, we’re hoping you’ll take a look at Krista’s first 24 hours at UGA and share some of your own!

Here’s how it works…

  • Get ready to experience a lot of amazing UGA firsts.
  • Take pictures and videos and tag them on FacebookTwitter or Instagram with #firstlookuga by August 18, 2014. (HINT: We’ll see your pictures more easily if you tag @UGAHousing in your posts!)*
  • At the end of the summer our social media street team will select five F1RSTS to be shared on our blog. (HINT: Think outside the box! Are you merely shopping for room décor at a convenience store or on a thrifting adventure discovering your personal style?)
  • From our five finalists, a randomly selected grand prizewinner will receive a generous welcome basket for their room courtesy of University Housing... just in time to prepare for our 2014 Room of the Year and Best Video Tour contests. 

*Not currently active on social media? Don’t worry! Snap your pic and send it to us via email at with a brief description and #firstlookuga in the subject line.

So what are you waiting for? What’s going to be your #firstlookuga experience?
