On September 29th, the UGA Admissions office will host an annual First Look with Embark@UGA event. This event is geared specifically for youth who are experiencing foster care and/or homelessness, along with up to three guests per student. This program is for students who are in 10th through 12th grade and may be competitive for the admissions process for UGA. One of the primary goals of this event is to highlight the broad array of resources available at UGA to meet their needs. We are also excited to showcase UGA's amazing campus and student life in Athens, GA, the birthplace of public higher education in America.
The UGA First Look event is a free, full day program and includes a variety of activities:
- Campus tour
- Opportunities to interact and meet with current students, faculty and staff to discuss available resources
- Information sessions highlighting admissions, merit-based scholarships and our nationally ranked facilities and amenities
- Lunch provided in the dining hall for invited students
