Veterans Week Reception: 

On Nov 10th from 4:30 to 5:30ish, the SVRC is hosting our annual Veterans Week Reception.  Dr Whitten (Provost) and Dr McDonald (Dean of Students) are scheduled to attend along with many of our university, corporate and community partners.  Food will be catered by Taziki’s Mediterranean Café in Athens.

ALL student veterans are encouraged to attend.  In addition to good food and good company, the agenda includes:
  • Recognition of SVRC Fall Scholarship and Award recipients
  • Drawing for a signed and framed Coach Smart football poster
  • Opportunity for registrants to pick up their free football tickets (see MOTO PHOTO below)
Please plan to attend!

Moto Photos:

Have a great photo from your time in the military?

If so, then please send the picture to us and we’ll display it on the Tate Student Center Art Wall and on the close-circuit TVs in the Tate Center around Veterans Day.  

Additionally, your image will be shown on the scoreboard at Sanford Stadium during the UGA vs UL-L game on Saturday, November 19th.

Your high-resolution photo needs to be submitted to the SVRC in JPEG format by October 24th.  To upload your picture, click here!

Free Football Tickets: 

As an incentive to find and forward a good picture, we have partnered with the UGA Athletic Association to offer the following:  
  • The first 50 student veterans to submit MOTO photos that are selected for display will receive up to two free non-student tickets to the University of Louisiana Game on Nov 19th 
  • Requests for tickets are embedded within the MOTO Photo link above 
NOTE:  Only submit one photo per student veteran. Tickets can be picked up at the Nov 10th Veterans Week Reception (4:30-5:30 outside the SVRC) and are sequential seats located in Sections 100 and 300.

Readiness Coaching: 

Following the Fall Career Fair and the recent SVRC-unique opportunities with GOOGLE and AMAZON, we’ve experienced an increasing number of students interested in improving their marketability.  This is great news and we can help!
If interested in learning more about connecting to a Readiness Coach, contact Ryan Mohney (SVRC Graduate Assistant).  If interested in learning more about our Corporate Connect Program contact Dan Phillips (SVRC Graduate Assistant).   

SVA Meeting: 

The next Student Veterans Association meeting will be at October 5th at 5:00 in the First Data Student Veterans Lounge. 

Did You Know: 

Have you ever wondered about the history of student veterans at UGA? For example, did you know:
  • Generals Benning and Gordon (e.g. Ft Benning and Ft Gordon) both attended UGA.
  • Following World War II, 65% of all students attending UGA were veterans.
