FACS will host its inaugural Parents Day event Saturday at Dawson Hall.
The event, from 10 a.m. – noon, will allow parents and families to experience the college first-hand and see the many opportunities the college offers.
“The goal is to just make parents and families feel welcome at Dawson Hall,” said Victoria Prevatt, executive director of development and alumni relations. “We want to be student-centered but we also want to be family-centered and parent-centered.
The day will kick off with coffee and bagels and a talk from Dean Linda Fox at 10:30 a.m. From there, parents and families will have a chance to visit their individual departments and interact with faculty and students.
The Office of Student Success and Advising Center will be open throughout the day to answer any questions.
Diane Johnson, Director of UGA’s Parents and Families Leadership Council, will be on hand to speak to the parents about how their students can get involved in other areas of UGA.
“We want to make sure parents understand the opportunities that are available to their kids through career services, scholarships, study abroad, internships and how we are prepared to help their student have a successful experience,” Prevatt said.
After the tour, parent and families may attend a lunch on the lawn with Dean Fox. Tickets for lunch are $10 and can be purchased the day of the event.
