The People of the Arch (POTA) seek to serve the University of Georgia at all functions where it is desired to have students welcome guests and visitors to the University of Georgia. Arch Society seeks to advance the University of Georgia through service to the offices of the President, the Provost, the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Senior Vice President for External Affairs, Alumni Relations, the Athletic Association, and other University offices or officials at appropriate functions.
Arch Society is named after the most prominent symbol of the University, the Arch. In 1857, an iron fence was erected along the northern borders of the campus. The Arch, located on Broad Street at College Avenue, became the main entrance and was modeled after the Great Seal of the State of Georgia with three pillars representing wisdom, justice, and moderation. Over the years the Arch has come to be one of the most recognizable symbols of the University of Georgia.
