What is your fondest memory of your time spent in the college?

The Georgia-LSU football game in 2013.  ESPN’s College Gameday was set up across from Dawson Hall in Myers Quad, and I just remember walking out of class and feeling the electricity in the air.

How did FACS prepare you for your career?

FACS taught me how to communicate effectively with professors and classmates…tools that I still use today in the working world. 

Why do you give to FACS/UGA?

UGA was the source of so many great relationships, memories, and experiences, and I felt the need to give back my time and money in hopes that other students have similar experiences at UGA/FACS.

What is the best advice you can share with current FACS students?

Don’t take your time at UGA/FACS for granted.  Athens is such a special place.  Meet new people, study abroad, try to take in everything that UGA has to offer.  Don’t have any regrets on your college experience after graduation.
