Locos will be hosting a percentage night to raise funds for the Adam Cramond Martin Travel Award

Locos will be hosting a percentage night on Thursday, April 4, to raise funds for the Adam Cramond Martin Travel Award. This award honors Adam’s life and his accomplishments by providing annual travel awards for UGA history students who, like him, had to show resiliency, courage, and character to persevere in school in the face of sometimes overwhelming obstacles.

LeConte forum

Joseph LeConte was a geologist, a naturalist, and a Darwinist. He was also energetically, unabashedly racist. So the Department of History is holding a forum for its students and faculty to discuss what we should do about his portrait — which until recently faced the main entrance of LeConte Hall.

LeConte Hall is named after Joseph LeConte, a man emblematic of his times in his support for science, evolution, and Darwin — as well as his unmitigated support for slavery, segregation, and racism.
