The University of Georgia Arts Council, whose members represent the performing, visual and literary arts on campus, is seeking an undergraduate student to serve as a student representative for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Student representatives to the Arts Council are advocates for the arts at UGA who communicate information about Arts Council events and projects to other students, particularly through established student organizations. Arts Council student representatives attend monthly Arts Council meetings, tentatively scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month at 4 p.m., and provide input to the council from the perspective of students and help advance the initiatives of the council.
Applicants must be currently enrolled UGA undergraduate students who are not graduating before May 2017. Applicants must be in good academic standing and should possess strong communication skills and enthusiasm for the arts at UGA.
Faculty and administrators from any campus unit may nominate students, and students of all majors are encouraged to self-nominate. Service as a student representative to the Arts Council is for two semesters (fall and spring). Students selected to serve on the Arts Council may reapply for an additional term.
The following information should be included as part of the application/nomination:

Summer and Fall Graduates:
Graduation checks for Summer 2016 and Fall 2016 graduates are going on now through Friday, April 29.
A graduation check is an optional appointment with the FACS graduation officer to review your progress towards graduation and confirm you will complete all requirements the semester in which you plan to graduate. A graduation check is not required to graduate. As long as you apply for graduation during the semester in which you plan to graduate, your record will be evaluated and, if you have satisfied all requirements, you will be cleared for graduation.
To schedule a graduation check, send an email with your availability to Kelly King.
Please note, a graduation check does not replace a regular advising appointment; you will not be cleared to register during a graduation check.
If you have any questions, please contact the Student Success and Advising Center.
Spring and Summer Graduates:
You are invited to attend FACS Convocation on Friday, May 13, at 3:00 p.m. at The Classic Center located at 300 North Thomas Street, Athens, GA 30601.
