In 1785, the University of Georgia became the first state-chartered university in America. 

We take our designation as "the first" seriously. 

UGA students are always the first - to volunteer, to engage, to question, to take action.  They are on the front lines: conducting research alongside professors, exploring diverse cultures across the globe through more than 100 study abroad locations, serving in Athens, GA and beyond.  They are leading by example, blazing new paths, creating a better world.
