UGA-Griffin campus to host open house for prospective students

Griffin, Ga. – The University of Georgia will host an open house in the Student Learning Center at the Griffin campus on Aug. 27 from 12-6 p.m. Prospective students will have the opportunity to learn more about the available undergraduate and graduate degree programs and admissions requirements for UGA.

Students can speak with admissions counselors and faculty, as well as take a tour of the campus during their visit, including the Student Learning Center-a space that includes classrooms equipped with the latest technology, a student lounge and computer labs.

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