UGA First Look

UGA First Look is a special visitation program for select high school students and their families. The day will include a kick off with admissions and the application process; a tour of historic North Campus; an academic panel with current students and faculty; a resource fair with many of our campus partners; and information on student amenities and UGA's nationally ranked facilities. Invited students will also have lunch, on us, in one of our national award-winning dining halls. Dine with the staff of Admissions, students and members of the University community. End your day by touring a residence hall, exploring campus on your own, or visiting the on-campus book store.

Whether this is your first visit to Athens or you are visiting again, we welcome you to come enjoy a day on the beautiful University of Georgia campus. Come and experience the history, tradition and opportunities at the birthplace of higher education in the United States.
