The Legislative Aide Leadership Fellows Program is one of the best things I have ever done for myself professionally and personally.
I made lifelong connections with legislators, lobbyists, state workers, and simply other UGA students. It truly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I would recommend to any FACS student!
Representing FACS in our State's legislative proccess was one of the most enriching, life-altering experiences I've ever had.
Each day I was able to work alongside intelligent people, gain new career experience, and make lifelong friends and connections. I have to thank this college for bringing me this wonderful opportunity.
This unparalleled opportunity has allowed me to experience the legislative process firsthand
To say that I am extremely grateful to be a Senate Aide at the Georgia State Capitol would be an understatement. This unparalleled opportunity has allowed me to experience the legislative process firsthand and witness lawmaking in action.
