More than 400 middle and high school kids from southwest Georgia turned out in November to learn what they need to do now to become Bulldogs in just a few short years. Sponsored by the Alumni Association in partnership with the admissions office, the “Keys to the Dawg House” event, held at Deerfield-Windsor School in Albany, gave kids a chance to talk to people with real UGA experience—alumni.

The young students had a chance to hear about scholarships, amenities—like the expanded Tate Student Center—and study abroad opportunities. Six “Keys to the Dawg House” events have been held so far. More are being scheduled for 2010. Check the Alumni Association Web site regularly for upcoming events at www.
