Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia Center for Student Organizations will hold its annual Fall Activities Fair Sept. 5. from 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m. on the Tate Student Center Plaza and West Lawn. The fair was rescheduled for its orginal Aug. 29 date due to heavy rains.

The fair is designed to encourage students to become involved in campus clubs and organizations.

More than 200 of the university’s 650 registered student organizations will staff booths at the fair in order to provide information and recruit new members. Admission is free, and the fair is open to students, faculty, staff and members of the Athens community.
