Later this week, UGA will be celebrating the 225 anniversary of the founding of the university, with a focus on both the history of UGA and the future for our institution. On Thursday, April 22, the focus will be on the past 225 years of UGA, with discussions about the evolution of the physical space on campus, desegregation, and a reception and concert featuring the music of UGA. On Friday, April 23, the focus will be on what lies ahead for UGA, and will close with a rededication of the Fine Arts Theatre. As the nation’s first chartered public institution of higher education, UGA has a great deal to celebrate!
