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.

Dawg Talk Webinars

Our Dawg Talk webinars provide the opportunity for incoming student to connect with various campus programs and departments. Through differing webinars over the fall, students and families will:

    • Have a better understanding of the UGA resources and programs that are available to new students
    • Be able to learn about resources from campus experts and ask topic specific questions to UGA offices and departments
    • Seek help with various UGA questions including class registration, auxiliary services, and finding connection on campus.

More information about summer 2021 Dawg Talks will be provided soon. Make sure to check back here for opportunities to connect with campus resources and academic college leading up to orientation.

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
