Today marks the 226th anniversary of the founding of the University of Georgia. On this day in 1785, the oldest public university in the United States was chartered. Since that fateful, historic day, UGA has become a leader in academics, innovation, athletics, and leadership. It also has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country.
As an alumnus of the University of Georgia, I’m proud to have been part of this long tradition of excellence. In many ways it’s like a second home to me, and I always feel welcome in Athens. Happy Birthday UGA! It will always be great to be a Georgia Bulldog!
