Griffin, Ga. - The University of Georgia will host an information session in the student learning center at the Griffin campus on Sept. 14 from 10 a.m.-noon that offers prospective students the opportunity to learn more about the available undergraduate and graduate degree programs and admissions requirements for UGA.

Students will get to see the student learning center-a space that includes classrooms equipped with the latest technology, a student lounge and computer labs, as well as take a tour of the campus during their visit.

The event offers prospective students the opportunity to learn more about the available undergraduate and graduate degree programs and admissions requirements for UGA. Students also are invited to take a tour of the campus during their visit.

UGA-Griffin offers undergraduate degree completion programs in general business, consumer economics, microbiology, special education, agriculture and two new undergraduate degree programs-interdisciplinary studies with psychology concentration and interdisciplinary studies with sociology concentration-to students who have completed at least two years of undergraduate coursework. In addition, the campus offers graduate degrees programs in math education, agricultural leadership, workforce education and student affairs leadership.

"The academic programs in Griffin provide our students with low student-to-faculty ratios, which allows personable instruction from world renowned faculty," said Doris Christopher, assistant vice president for academic affairs. "Many of our students work on campus and perform cutting-edge research in our labs, giving them an advantage of real-world experience and marketability well before graduation. UGA-Griffin boasts a small college atmosphere with the benefits of obtaining a large university degree."

"Students will be able to speak directly with faculty and program coordinators, as well as obtain information on specific programs and admissions requirements," said J.L. Wyatt, admissions counselor.

For more information about the Sept. 14 session or the UGA-Griffin campus, or to request a tour, contact J.L. Wyatt at 770-421-4400 or jlwyatt@uga.edu. Tours are also offered to the general public during regular business hours weekdays from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
