Welcome to the University of Georgia’s Gwinnett Campus
Welcome to the University of Georgia, the nation’s oldest chartered state university, established January 27, 1785. As Georgia's premier institution of higher learning, the university continues to strive for excellence through its student body, faculty, facilities, and opportunities for education and growth. You are arriving at UGA at an exciting time.
You are joining classmates who are among the best and brightest from this state, this nation, and, indeed, around the world. From the classroom to the concert hall, the athletic field to the computer lab, University of Georgia students are modeling success. In recent years we have produced Rhodes Scholars, Truman Scholars, Goldwater Scholars, Academic All-Americans, Fulbright Fellows, Olympic medalists, and a National Student Volunteer of the Year from amongst our student body. This institution is dedicated to fostering a university community that provides students with a top-quality education and prepares them to be future leaders.
As proud as we are of our students, we are also justly proud of the accomplishments of our faculty, which include members of the National Academy of Sciences, internationally recognized chemists, ecologists, legal scholars, biotechnologists, and authorities in American poetry, fiction, literary criticism and art history. During your time here, you will encounter faculty whose research and teaching are changing the way we think and live.
You will have the opportunity to utilize some of the best facilities in the land. We have offices and campuses all across the state of Georgia that serve students and communities alike. You may also study abroad in UGA’s year-round facilities in Oxford, England; Cortona, Italy; San Luis, Costa Rica; and several other locations around the world.
I am delighted that you have chosen to attend UGA – a place where you will enjoy fulfilling experiences and build long-lasting relationships. I look forward to celebrating with you your accomplishments as a student, and I wish you the best throughout your years at the University of Georgia.
