Athens, Ga. – High school students and their parents are invited to learn more about post-secondary opportunities available in Athens-Clarke County and surrounding communities at the third annual Colleges in Your Backyard program on Jan. 15. The University of Georgia Office of Undergraduate Admissions is hosting the event, which is free and open to the public, from 3-5 p.m. at the UGA Chapel.

The event will feature a panel discussion with representatives from the UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Office of Student Financial Aid as well as Gainesville State College, Athens Technical College and Piedmont College.
A mini college fair will immediately follow the panel discussion in Terrell Hall, where the UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions is located.
