UGA to hold student activities fair

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia Center for Student Organizations will hold its annual winter activities fair on Jan. 25 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Tate Student Center Grand Hall. The fair is designed to encourage students to become involved in campus clubs and organizations.

More than 150 of the university’s 600 registered student organizations will staff booths at the fair in order to provide information and recruit new members. The fair is open to students, faculty, staff and members of the Athens community. Admission is free.

Joshua Podvin, senior coordinator of the center, says students who are actively involved in campus organizations will find their experiences at UGA to be more successful.

“Studies in the field of student affairs suggest that students who find a balance between their academic pursuits and time spent working with student organizations ultimately report higher levels of satisfaction with their college careers,” he said.
