Reading Day

Reading Days: These days have been designated by the University Council to provide time for students to prepare for final examinations. No mandatory assignments are to be scheduled for completion during reading days -- either for course work or extra-curricular or co-curricular activities. Exceptions for good cause can be made to this policy by the Vice President for Instruction. Nothing in this policy limits an instructor from scheduling optional study reviews for students during reading days.

Black History at UGA Panel Discussion

UGA's chapter of the NAACP and Phi Alpha Theta, Epsilon Pi (UGA's chapter of the National History Honor Society, Inc.) are hosting a panel discussion about how Black History is represented on our campus. From street and building names to historic markers, our surrounding campus landscape may appear to present a white-washed history. However, just beneath the surface is a wealth of black history that extends far beyond Hunter, Holmes, and desegregation. In what ways does our campus fail to tell this story?
