Online Student Engagement

We are excited to provide you new opportunities to connect with Orientation Leaders, learn more about UGA, and discover what it means to be a Bulldog. Throughout the rest of the fall, New Student Orientation will be hosting multiple engagement methods virtually to help in your transition to the campus community.

Around the Arch Podcast


Around the Arch is a podcast from New Student Orientation focused on helping our newest Dawgs hear about life as a UGA student and how you can get the most of your time here before that moment you graduate and can pass through the Arch. Posted each Wednesday on Apple Podcast, Spotify, and Podbean

UGA Parent and Family Portal

We also encourage parents and family members to sign up for our Parent and Family Portal. To sign up for the portal, parents and families can visit the website here to learn more and register today.
