Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs

I could not have asked for a better opportunity to work on campus than with the OVPSA. Not only have I come to realize just how encompassing Student Affairs is across campus, but I’ve also had the privilege of witnessing the energy and effort that goes into making all aspects of Student Affairs the best they can possibly be. It’s been a wonderful experience. - Savannah Downing, Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs

Tate Student Center

The Division of Student Affairs has been my “home away from home” for the last two years. It is such a wonderful work environment that I have been able to grow not only as a student worker, but as an individual. My role has allowed me to meet, greet and help visitors to the Tate Student Center every day, and the work that I complete has made me the person I am today and the person I will be in the future. - Iris Garrett, Tate Student Center

University Housing

University Housing has offered me the unique opportunity to be part of a community of amazing people beginning on day one. The people I have met and the skills I have gained since being a part of this department have truly shaped the individual I am today in a way that I have never experienced before. I guess you could say that I have really found a home in Housing! - James Han, University Housing

Disability Resource Center

The Disability Resource Center has always fostered a sense of welcome and accommodation for me during my time at UGA. They don’t focus on your illness or disability, but focus on improving the quality of your experiences all over campus. Through the accommodations and positive environment that the DRC has provided, I have been able to excel in my academics, reach out and explore new opportunities on campus and continue in my passion of serving others. - Kathryn Cushen, Disability Resource Center

Center for Leadership and Service

I owe my entire college career to the Center for Leadership and Service. Getting involved has allowed me to create that sense of community that I was worried about finding in a school so big. I have created a home and a family here, and my wish for all students is to find the place where they feel like they belong. It will transform your college experience. - Melanie Wiggins, Center for Leadership and Service & Multicultural Services and Programs

Recreational Sports

As a member of the Rec Sports family, my involvement has challenged me to grow as a leader, working with and for others. This opportunity has allowed me to make connections with fellow students, lend my time volunteering, and learn how to maintain a healthy balance of responsibility. Additionally, I’ve witnessed how much skill and proficiency is required to successfully manage one of the busiest facilities on this campus. Mandi Kay, Recreational Sports

Student Affairs for Extended Campuses

I had always dreamed of attending the University of Georgia and the UGA Griffin Campus made it possible. The smaller campus makes attending class more convenient and provides a greater sense of connection to the university community. Student Affairs has provided opportunities for me to be involved in student organizations, and that has helped me to grow as a leader and will benefit me in my future career. - Christian Hernandez, Extended Campuses, Griffin Campus

University Health Center

I am extremely humbled to serve as chair of the Fontaine Center Student Advisory Board at the University Health Center. Our board, like many boards at UHC, is about outreach to the local Athens community and the University. This organization and the Health Center have allowed me to be involved and contribute to the University while gaining experience in the health profession. I hope to continue to inform students on alcohol awareness and to promote our “Healthy Dawg” initiative. – Treazure Commings, University Health Center
