About Goin’ Back: Remembering UGA

Goin’ Back, Goin’ Back
Goin’ Back to Athenstown!
Goin’ Back, Goin’ Back
To the best ole place around!
Goin’ Back, Goin’ Back
Just to hear that grand old sound -
Of the Chapel bell and the Georgia yell -
Goin’ Back to Athenstown!

– Morton S. Hodgson - 1908

Goin’ Back: Remembering UGA is an oral history project that captures the memories of former students, faculty and staff at the University of Georgia. Originally a joint project of the Public Affairs Office and the Alumni Association, the project is now directed by the Oral History Program at the Richard  B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies at the Special Collections Libraries. This website shares some of the memories recorded.
