We keep growing and growing
The start of the fall semester saw three new buildings or additions open on UGA campuses—two in Athens and one in Griffin.
The College of Pharmacy expanded into its new Pharmacy South addition, adjacent to the Robert C. Wilson Pharmacy Building on south campus. The $44 million, 93,288-square-foot facility, which has biodiesel generators, is registered for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification, the national benchmark for design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.
The University Health Center moved into its expanded and renovated space, which increased the building’s size by 30,000 square feet. The $17 million project includes new clinic and office space, allowing the center to add a Vision Clinic to its existing health services.
UGA at Griffin moved into its 33,000-square-foot student learning center, funded in large part through a $10 million special purpose local option sales tax approved by Spalding County voters in November 2005. UGA now offers seven undergraduate degree programs at the Griffin campus and two graduate programs. For more, go to http://www.uga.edu/griffin.
