Athens, Ga. - High school representatives, students and their parents can learn about the college admissions process and how to apply for scholarships and financial aid at the sixth annual "Colleges in Your Backyard" event hosted by the University of Georgia Office of Undergraduate Admissions Jan. 18 from 3-5 p.m. in the fifth floor Grand Hall of the Tate Student Center at UGA.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature a panel discussion with representatives from the UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Office of Student Financial Aid as well as representatives from Athens Technical College, Piedmont College and the University of North Georgia.

A mini college fair will immediately follow the panel discussion and will include an opportunity for students and parents to receive additional information on each of the represented colleges and ask questions.
