UGA | ESSENTIALS

The Places You Must See FOR ANY VISITOR THESE ARE THE SPOTS FIRST ON THE LIST, THE GO-TOS. THESE ARE THE ESSENTIALS. Every university campus has them – revered and remarkable points of pride. A campus the size of the University of Georgia (a sturdy 389 buildings on 759 sprawling acres) boasts a bevy of such spots, but among those are a few that stand out, pushed to the forefront by history and prominence. They are the symbols and landmarks that make UGA familiar from afar.

THE ARCH

If you walk under The Arch as a freshman, legend has it you’ll never graduate. Sitting at the front of North Campus, across from the bustle of downtown Athens on the corner of Broad Street and College Avenue, the wrought-iron Arch was commissioned in 1858 and patterned after the one located on Georgia’s Great Seal. A representation of the state constitution, The Arch’s columns represent wisdom, justice and moderation. 4 | University

of

Georgia Visitor’s Guide

It’s incorporated into the official university logo and its image is seen on just about anything the university produces. Originally it held heavy gates that were closed to secure the campus, but they disappeared sometime around 1885. In 1946, two electric lights were added to the top, and it was moved about six feet away from the street. According to legend, university alumnus Daniel Huntley Redfearn (Class of 1910) arrived in Athens in the early 1900s with only a trunk, a suitcase and less than $200. As he approached The Arch for the first time, he vowed he would not walk under it until he had a diploma in hand. He kept his word, even as a freshman hazing ritual called for him to run with classmates under The Arch in his underwear before the Georgia Tech football game (He ran with his classmates, but ran around The Arch). One of his professors learned of the promise and announced it to his classes, starting the tradition – which became limited to freshmen –


ESSENTIALS | UGA

that holds to this day. Redfearn never forgot the inspiration he found in The Arch and provided in his will that $1,000, the original cost of The Arch, be used for its maintenance and care.

NORTH CAMPUS QUAD

Debaters and athletes roamed these parts, marked by sundials for speeches that never were, and bells for winners only. Walk through The Arch and the green space opens up, dotted by oak and elm trees, surrounded by buildings marking UGA’s beginnings. Past the Holmes/Hunter Academic Building stands Demosthenian Hall (1824), a meeting spot for members of the Demosthenian Literary Society, a society founded in 1803 for the promotion of extemporaneous speaking. In 1820, some members broke with the society and formed the Phi Kappa Literary Society, simply known by Demosthenians as the “Society across the way.” Phi Kappa Hall’s (1836) first floor once served as the university’s first real gymnasium in 1888. During the Civil War, the building was converted by federal troops into the headquarters for the provost-marshal government. Today the two societies hold periodic debates from their second-floor meeting halls. Built in 1832, the Chapel was once the main center of campus activities. A daily religious service, which students were required to attend, was held there, as were assemblies and commencements. A Bell Tower originally crowned the roof, but in 1913 was found to

be rotten and was removed. The bell, which rang for chapel, for the beginning and end of class, and in emergencies, was placed at the top of a wooden tower at the back of the Chapel. Now the bell is rung only to mark athletic victories or other special occasions. A sundial in front of the Chapel marks the site of Toombs Oak. A senator and Confederate general, Robert Toombs began his career by being expelled from the university in 1825. As the story goes, he reappeared at commencement and spoke so eloquently under the oak tree that the audience left the Chapel to hear him. The incident,

SANFORD STADIUM

Surrounded by hedges, it hosts Georgia victories, Olympic gold medal games and the remains of eight mascots. Sitting in the heart of campus, Sanford Stadium (D3) has welcomed a steady stream of visitors since Oct. 12, 1929, when an overflow crowd of 30,000 watched Vernon ‘Catfish’ Smith lead the Bulldogs to a 15-0 blanking of Yale. Through the years Sanford has added lights and seats, tripling in capacity and becoming a beacon for 92,746 spectators on Fall Saturdays. But one aspect has remained constant since that Yale game – the sweeping hedges that outline the playing field. The idea to put hedges around the field came from Charlie Morton, a business manager in the Athletic Department. He said he received inspiration for the idea during a visit to the Rose Bowl, where he saw the hedge of roses in that stadium. Roses were not a suitable choice for Athens’ climate, so privet hedges were used. “Between the Hedges” was born. Named for the late S.V. Sanford, former university president and Chancellor of the university system, Sanford was initially open-ended on the East and West sides. Lights were added in 1940, and in 1981 the East end was enclosed and lights were attached to the upper level. A decade later the West end was closed, and expansions in 2003 and 2004 added a second upper deck on the north side and 27 SkySuites. In 1996, Sanford hosted the medal round of the Olympic men’s and women’s soccer competition. Also planted in Sanford, one of the few college stadiums in which the

MAIN LIBRARY

If you can’t find the information here, it can’t be found. Through its eight floors of shelf after shelf of books, magazines, microfilms and documents, the Main Library (B3) is a targeted place of study on the edge of North Campus. The Main Library collects material in arts and humanities, social sciences and business, but also contains a large government documents collection, media department, and a microform collection. A music research collection is on the seventh floor, while the Digital Library of Georgia is based in the building as well. For years the library housed several special collections, but in 2011 these collections moved to the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library, located off Baxter Street near the Miller Learning Center. The 115,000 square foot building holds The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, which consists of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library (120,000 rare books on a variety of subjects as well as six million items of family papers, diaries and letters), the Georgiana Collection (documents on the ongoing history of Georgia) and the University of Georgia Archives.

ARTS & SCIENCES | UGA Mixed with the Gothic tinge of southern milieu as well as a profound dedication to the classics, the arts and science culture at the university is deep and storied. Scholars such as Lamar Dodd and Hugh Hodgson made UGA a focal point of arts and music across the world, and their legacies are embodied in the programs created in their names.

GEORGIA MUSEUM OF ART

Where Asian art rooms with southern decor and images of the Renaissance meet Reopened in early 2011 following a massive expansion, the Georgia

Museum of Art (F2) serves as both an academic museum and the official art museum of Georgia, a role it’s held since it was first opened in 1948, when it was in the basement of an old library on the north campus. GMOA occupies a contemporary building on the university’s east campus. There, 79,000 square feet house more than 8,000 objects in the museum’s permanent collection – which consists of American paintings, primarily 19th and 20th century; American, European, and Asian works on paper; the Samuel H. Kress Study Collection of Italian Renaissance paintings; and growing collections of southern decorative arts and Asian art.

UGA | ARTS & SCIENCES Initially the museum’s founder, Alfred Heber Holbrook, donated a collection of 100 American paintings which included works by luminaries such as William Merritt Chase, Stuart Davis, Georgia O’Keeffe, Winslow Homer and Theodore Robinson. Holbrook, who began a personal quest to learn about the world of art after his retirement at the age of 70, took a trip to Athens in the 1940s and met Lamar Dodd, head of the university’s art department. The two began a friendship, sharing a joint vision of enriching the visual arts environment in Georgia. Holbrook, clad in a kneelength pink artist’s smock with pipe in hand, attended art classes and GMOA was founded in 1945.

GEORGIA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

A study in research, from anthropology to zooarchaeology. For many decades, UGA maintained a number of natural history collections under the aegis of various academic departments. In

1978, the university recognized these collections as the Museum of Natural History (E2), and in 1999, the Georgia General Assembly recognized it as the official state museum of natural history. The museum is the repository for the preservation and study of the tangible evidence of history, culture and natural heritage of the state of Georgia and its people.

UGA | ARTS & SCIENCES GIANT SLOTH

Witness the last moments of a prehistoric giant It’s not what you’d expect in the lobby of the Boyd Graduate Studies Research Center (E3), but there it is: The skeleton of a giant North American sloth trying to escape the death grip of a Georgia salt marsh. Measuring about 13 feet in length and weighing between 2,500 and 3,000 pounds, the skeleton (bottom left) is the first of a prehistoric animal ever put together in Georgia and only the fourth North American ground sloth known to have been mounted anywhere. The bones were discovered in 1970 during the construction of Interstate 95 near Brunswick and excavated by university students. One of the students, Albert Brantley, an undergraduate in geology at the time, was chosen to reconstruct and mount the skeleton. He simulated a marsh to recreate the death scene, as the skeleton’s two back feet and one front hand are invisible in the mud while one hand grasps for freedom.

PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

Two stages are set for the world’s best to perform Adjacent to the Georgia Museum of Art, the Performing Arts Center (F2) houses two impressive concert halls – Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall and Ramsey Concert Hall – which host some of the finest national and international performers.

The Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall is the larger of the two, seating 1,100 in festival-style seating (seats surround the stage). Its superb acoustics complement solo artists as well as chamber ensembles and full symphony orchestras.

The University of Georgia boasts excellence in academics and richness in history, but an added aspect to the University’s allure can be summed up in four simple words: How ’Bout Them Dogs. The vintage slogan, which became a catch phrase for Bulldog fans worldwide, is still bandied about today and is a symbol of the University’s love for its sports. So get ready for some action, whether you chip, shoot, serve, sprint or swim.

BUTTS-MEHRE HERITAGE HALL

Located off Lumpkin Street on the south side of campus, Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall (F5) is an 85,000 square foot complex that is all things Georgia football.

In the rotunda under the domed roof, exhibits include retired jerseys, memorabilia from Heisman Trophy winners, and the shining jewel – the 1980 NCAA National Championship Trophy. Recently upgraded touch-screen displays contain video highlights of Georgia’s football history, and UGA lovers can view an exhibit on the acclaimed mascot. It also houses the Larry Munson Trophy Room, featuring awards and trophies Georgia football has gathered through the years. A $40 million expansion of Butts-Mehre was completed in 2010, and includes new strength and conditioning rooms and renovation to the first and second floors. A garden and sculpture commemorating former football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley is adjacent to Butts-Mehre. The statue shows Dooley being carried on the shoulders of players from his 1980 national championship team.

A public course with a pro pedigree. As beautiful to view as it is challenging to play, the 7,300-yard, par 71 Robert Trent Jones course features hilly terrains, strategically placed bunkers and large, undulating greens. Golf Digest has rated it as one of the top 50 public courses in the nation, and has been host to a professional tournament, now called the Web.com Stadion Classic, since 2009. The course is characterized by lush bermuda fairways best known for their length. Water guards four of the holes while bunkers border quick, bent grass greens. In past years, it has undergone large-scale renovations, making the greens larger and more undulating. Mounds and pot bunkers also changed the look of the greens and enhanced the challenge of getting to the pins. In addition to the championship course, the facilities include a three-tiered driving range, a large, beautiful bermuda chipping green.

A history of hoops, and gymnastic mastery. The site of countless Georgia men’s and women’s basketball games, Stegeman Coliseum (at right, F4) has also hosted rhythmic gymnastics and preliminary volleyball matches during the 1996 Summer Olympics, as well as the NCAA gymnastics championships in 1989, 1995 and 2008. Built in 1964 and called the Georgia Coliseum, it was renamed in 1996 to the memory of Herman James Stegeman, former UGA athletics director. The Coliseum is two structures – the roof and the building beneath it – with the only connection between the two an aluminum bellows which seals the joints and permits the rise and fall of the roof with temperature change. Stegeman (capacity 10,523) has undergone several renovations, including expansion of the seating area, new scoreboards and a state-of-the art basketball floor. Visitors can take a gander at the 10 NCAA trophies the Gym Dogs have accumulated throughout the years.

UGA | GREAT OUTDOORS

An Outdoor Museum GARDENS AND EXOTIC PLANTS ABOUND, AND HIKERS, BIKERS, ROWERS AND SOWERS CAN FIND A PLACE IN THE SUN.

For all that is scenic about the University of Georgia – from its historic buildings on North Campus, its museums and concert halls on East Campus and its facilities for athletic prowess on South Campus – the green spaces in between are a wonder unto themselves. The campus flora is celebrated enough to be designated an arboretum, as stately, noble trees provide human scale, a sense of place, cooling shade, and tranquility to students, faculty, staff and visitors.

BOTANICAL GARDENS

The roses are red, the liriopes are blue Three miles south of campus is the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, an educational facility operated under the auspices of UGA. A “living laboratory” for students and faculty who utilize the collections for studies, the garden is also a public garden for those who find beauty, knowledge and solitude in a garden setting. 20 | University

of

Georgia Visitor’s Guide

Founded in 1968, the Garden encompasses more than 300 acres, much of which borders the Middle Oconee River. It contains a number of theme gardens (including ones for roses, native flora and spices), special collections (rhododendrons, azaleas and conifers), and a tropical conservatory which together feature a broad array of both native and exotic plant species. More than five miles of nature trails traverse the natural areas where small populations of wildlife, particularly birds, can be observed. The Garden also features a cafe, garden shop, and the Day Chapel, which is one of Athens’ premier wedding facilities.

park includes Lake Herrick, foot and bike trails, picnic tables, and open, grassy areas bordered by native plants and wildflowers. Towering 100-year-old trees are remnants of a once extensive old-growth forest that stretched across the bypass toward the UGA Golf Course. The park (I2) provides a convenient living laboratory for faculty who teach botany, ecology, dendrology and horticulture. But there’s just as much to do as to see. Picnic areas include tables and two

permanent charcoal grills, while canoes and pedal boats can be rented at Lake Herrick. The park includes an extensive hiking area with a large off leash dog park, for those with four-legged friends; a 2.57 mile fitness trail with pull-up bars and fitness facts; a ropes challenge course for those who like their action above the tree line; 15 tennis courts; a dozen playing fields, for sports including lacrosse, softball and soccer; and a batting cage.

On Jan. 30, 1892, Georgia topped Mercer 50-0 in front of a few hundred sideline spectators and students watching from their dorm windows in nearby New College. Georgia played its home games on the field until 1911, when a new field was constructed off Lumpkin Street. The grounds were then used for informal intramural games and as a drill field for the R.O.T.C. trainees. It is now an open green space anchored by a huge fountain, a backdrop for weddings and graduation pictures. The field was named in honor of Dr. Charles H. Herty, professor of chemistry and sports enthusiast. He introduced football to the college boys and was unofficial coach and trainer of the early teams.

ARBORETUM WALKING TOUR AND TRIAL GARDENS

A stroll among giants. With an abundance of stately, noble trees, the University has been designated as an arboretum spreading throughout the entire campus. The towering tress generate a sense of place, cooling shade, and tranquility for students, faculty, staff and visitors. To walk this hallowed campus is to sense the pride in its heritage and hope for the future.

A “Tree Walk” was created by the University of Georgia Campus Arboretum initiative, and brochures marking the trees on North, Central and South campus can be found in the University Visitor’s Center. Deep within campus behind the Snelling Dining Hall are the Trial Garden (at left). The Gardens (E3) trials the newest varieties of annuals from all over the world and puts perennials to the test to find those that stand up to southeastern heat and humidity. The Gardens at UGA is open all year.

OLD ATHENS CEMETERY

A quaint, quiet spot amid the bustle of campus Across the street from the Main Library, nestled near Lamar Dodd, sits the Old Athens Cemetery (above), Athens’ original burial ground. Purchased for UGA in 1801, all townspeople were allowed to bury their dead there free of charge. Some markers are uninscribed local field stones, while others are of imported marble. Two Revolutionary soldiers are buried there, as well as Dr. Moses Waddell, University president from 1819-1829. The last known burials occurred in the 1880s, and today the cemetery, with its beautiful park-like setting, serves as a place of quiet reflection and remembrance of Athens long ago.


GREAT OUTDOORS | UGA

FOUNDER’S GARDEN

The first garden club organized in America is remembered in nature Created as a living memorial to the 12 founders of the Ladies’ Garden Club of Athens, the first garden club in America (organized in 1891), the Founders Memorial Garden (B3) not only serves as a museum of landscape design, but also a natural laboratory for botany, forestry, and related disciplines. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The layout of the two and one-half acre plot on North Campus includes grounds of the former Headquarters House, a formal boxwood garden, two courtyards, a terrace, a perennial garden, and an arboretum. After the establishment of the garden in 1946, the old smokehouse was acquired for a living museum to the 12 women. It was restored and furnished in keeping with the period of the house. Historical mementos, pictures, and a painting depicting the first meeting of a garden club are among the museum’s most treasured items.

All suites are designed with quality amenities like free Wi-Fi access, are equipped with a complete kitchen with stove top, fridge, microwave and a dishwasher. So come relax in the recliner while you feel at home with the comfortable amenities we offer.

Georgia Visitor’s Guide


in Athens… A WEEKEND IN THE CLASSIC CITY CAN YIELD FANTASTIC FINDS INSIDE AND OUT. NOW GET OUT AND TAKE A LOOK AROUND. INTRO

It was chosen as the site for the first state-supported university, but in the 208 years since it officially became a town, Athens has formed an identity that extends well past the University of Georgia borders. A city which shares a love of gardens, bicycling and bars, Athens (also known as the Classic City) is highly walkable despite its somewhat hilly terrain, boasting historic buildings and quirky sites along the way. As for the music scene, there’s a reason Athens is called “the Liverpool of the South,” giving visitors a chance to see live music eight days a week. It’s a town on the move, with a charm difficult to deny.

FRIDAY - 3 P.M. 1) START IN THE MIDDLE

Six blocks wide and four blocks long, downtown Athens is the heart of this vibrant city and the best place to start. Across the street from UGA’s historic North Campus and venerable metal Arch, downtown is a mix of historical buildings, restaurants, specialty shops, bars, musical venues and governmental bodies. First you need some Georgia Bulldog gear, so head to The Red Zone (155 E. Clayton Street; 706-353-8500; ugaredzone.com), where UGA T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, polos, flags, car tags and boxer shorts are available. For something different, walk over to Masada Leather & Outdoor (285 E. Clayton Street; 706-5465014; masadaleather.com) and peruse its handcrafted and custommade sandals, belts and handbags. Music-lovers are found at Wuxtry Records (197 E. Clayton Street; 706-369-9428; wuxtry-records.com), a nationally-recognized record store specializing in new and used vinyl. And just a bit outside of downtown’s borders sits Avid Bookstore (493 Prince Avenue; 706-352-2060; avidbookshop.com), an independent neighborhood bookstore with a well-curated selection to choose from. It also features book readings, signings, regular children’s story times and workshops with authors.

FRIDAY - 5 P.M. 2) TIME FOR A COLD ONE

After an afternoon walking through downtown streets it’s time for a beverage, but where to go depends on the mood you’re in. Allgood

Lounge (256 E. Clayton Street; 706-549-0166; allgoodlounge.com) spans two floors and a rooftop Tiki bar, with a generous helping of large screen TVs throughout. For a more traditional pub with hundreds of beers to choose from, The Globe (199 N. Lumpkin Street; 706-3534721; facebook.com/globe.athens) is the place for sit-down conversation, where one can order traditional Fish and Chips ($7.75) while sipping one of the many varieties of Athens-own Terrapin Beer ($3 to $6 a pint). Wherever you go remember this about Athens bars: There’s no smoking inside.

FRIDAY - 7:30 P.M. 3) FROM 34 TO FIVE

In a town which loves its football, there is no one feted more than Herschel Walker. The Heisman Trophy winner has his name all over the UGA record book, and now it sits atop a downtown restaurant. Herschel’s Famous 34 Pub & Grill (320 E. Clayton Street; 706-353-0334; herschelsfamous34pubandgrill.com) is known for it’s line of chicken and ribs, including Herschel’s Mama’s Chicken ($15) and St. Louis Ribs ($13.50). On the other side of downtown is Five Bar (269 North Hull Street, Suite 100; 706-543-5515; five-bar.com/athens) a restaurant with five snacks, five dinners, five cocktails and five white and red wines offered each day. Selections can include baked avocado ($7), Bone-In Pork Chop ($23) and fried green tomatoes with seafood salad and Sriracha ($9).

FRIDAY - 10 P.M. 4) THE THEATRE ABIDES

The nightlife caters to your drinking needs or musical tastes, and while many share a mix of the two, none can match the view and atmosphere of the Georgia Theatre (215 N. Lumpkin Street; 706-850-7670; georgiatheatre.com). Occupying the same spot since 1889, the Theatre has been a YMCA, movie theater, Masonic Temple and furniture store, but for most of the past 36 years it’s been a concert spot. A fire in 2009 gutted the historic venue, but two years of extensive renovations and the addition of a rooftop restaurant have vaulted it to the top of Athens must-see venues. Luring in top national and international acts, the

UGA | 36 HOURS Theatre holds 1,000 people for shows in its multi-deck hall. The rooftop bar, six floors up overlooking the downtown skyline, features free shows several nights a week, a full bar and open kitchen until 2 a.m.

SATURDAY - 10 A.M. 5) GENERALS AND BOBCATS

Athens claims indoor and outdoor treasures, and depending on the weather, your weekend destination could feature furnishings from the 1850s, or bears. The T.R.R. Cobb House (175 Hill Street; 706-3693513; trrcobbhouse.org) is a 1852 home of distinctive color and octagonal wings, the home of a Confederate General and the co-founder of the UGA school of law. The house is set up to appear as it did in the 1850s, with exhibits and display cases of Cobb’s original weapons and documents. The Ware-Lyndon House (293 Hoyt Street; 706-6133623) was built in 1856 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house was restored as both a house museum and centerpiece of the Lyndon House Arts Center. If outdoors is what you crave, Bear Hollow Zoo (293 Gran Ellen Drive; 706-613-3616) is a popular place for families, with a wildlife trail leading to homes of black bears, bobcats, snakes and alligators.

SATURDAY - NOON 6) LORD LOVES GRIT

No visit to Athens is complete without a stop at The Grit (199 Prince Avenue; 706-543-6592; thegrit.com), a nationally renown vegetarian restaurant performing magical miracles with tofu on a daily basis. Located in a 19th century building around the corner from downtown, The Grit exudes a southern charm with its worn walls dotted by R.A. Miller’s scrap metal art. As for food, the brunch is highlighted by the esteemed Tofu & Veggies ($6.25), but the Grit Granola ($3.95) is also a bowlful of goodness. If you get a chance to come later in the day, the Golden Bowl ($5.50 small, $6.50 large) is an Athens tradition – browned tofu sauteed with soy sauce and nutritional yeast over brown rice. Be sure to check the chalkboard in either room for the abundant daily specials.

SATURDAY - 2 P.M. 7) FROM ROME, ITALY TO ROME, GA.

Under the realm of UGA, the Georgia Museum of Art (90 Carlton Street; 706-542-4662; georgiamuseum.org) is the state’s official art museum, showcasing works from the Italian Renaissance, American

masters such as Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth, and self-taught folk artists such as Howard Finster. Renovated in 2011, GMOA expanded its main upstairs galleries and added an outdoor sculpture garden off the main lobby. Wide and expansive with rotating exhibitions and 12 distinct collections, the museum is free though a $3 donation is suggested (and well worth the price).

SATURDAY - 7:30 P.M. 8) FINEST IN THE SOUTH

The flagship restaurant of chef Hugh Acheson, 5&10 (1073 S. Milledge Avenue; 706-546-7300; fiveandten.com) pairs flavors of the South with influences from France and Italy for fare that has won awards from the James Beard Foundation. Set in a renovated historic home on South Milledge, 5&10 has a changing menu, though the Low Country Frogmore Stew ($25) is a constant. Prix fixe menus are available with new selection every week, and reservations are a must.

SATURDAY - 9 P.M. 9) A MOVIE OR A SHOW

Head back downtown to Ciné (234 W. Hancock Street; 706-3533343; athenscine.com), a cinema house that serves alcohol and shows independent and foreign films and documentaries. If music is what you seek, head a block over to the 40 Watt Club (285 W. Washington Street; 706-549-7871; 40watt.com), a nationally-celebrated music venue that helped launch the careers of local legends R.E.M. and Neutral Milk Hotel, and has hosted musical juggernauts Radiohead, Nirvana and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

SUNDAY - 10 A.M. 10) A HEARTY BRUNCH

Started as a music club in 1966 (where years later it held one of the first shows of the B52s), The Last Resort (174-184 W. Clayton Street; 706-549-0810; lastresortgrill.com) became a restaurant in 1992 and has been a popular dining destination since. Sunday brunch is a treat, with a host of omelets joining shrimp and grits ($8.50), pork hash ($7.50) and Chuck’s crab benedict ($8.95) on the eclectic menu.

SUNDAY - NOON 11) FLOWERS COVER EVERYTHING

There are several outdoor wonders throughout the Athens area, but

NATIONAL AWARDS


UGA | CAMPUS EATS

Food For Thought Traversing across a campus the size of the University of Georgia is a formidable task, and can leave visitors tired. But it doesn’t have to leave them hungry. All across campus are dining commons, cafes, eateries and restaurants serving a vast variety – from biscuits for early morning risers to burgers for late-night diners.

DINING COMMONS Award-winning cuisine for a sit down meal. The long-standing record of excellence in UGA food services is affirmed by food institutions across the nation, as the university has won dozens and dozens of awards for menu excellence. The four dining commons (Oglethorpe, Bolton, Snelling and The Village Summit) are the crown jewels of UGA’s efforts, all offering an array of soups, salads, entrees, side dishes, breads, desserts and beverages. Guests and visitors are welcome to dine at the centers at a separate fixed meal rate for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday buffet. Each commons has it’s own unique feel: Oglethorpe Dining Commons (E4), which has a bistro setting, features Asian cuisine and sushi at its stir-fry grill, home-style favorites at Chicken Country Unlimited, and Joe at the O’, a full service coffee bar. Oglethorpe is located just off Lumpkin Street adjacent to Oglethorpe House residence hall. Bolton Dining Commons (C4), located near many residence halls on Baxter Street, is a modern food emporium with spacious dining and access to 18 serving stations. The food is presented made-to-order or as serve yourself. Snelling Dining Commons (E3), located at the heart of south campus, offers full-amenities dining. Popular offerings include fresh made pizza from Giorgio’s Pizza and Pasta, made to order sandwiches at the Sanford Grill and omelets at AM All Day. Snelling provides “anytime” meal plan dining service on weekdays with a continuous 24-hour schedule. The Village Summit (G2) is located on the second floor of East Village Commons and offers made-to-order items: pizza at Giorgio’s & Co., omelets at Egg Works, sandwiches at Upper East Side Deli and Blue Steel Grill. Seven-day service is provided.

RESTAURANT AND CAFE An elegant setting in the heart of campus. The Georgia Center hotel (E4) operates two eating spots for those looking for a quick bite, or seeking a sit-down dinner. The Savannah Room features a renewed, relaxed, yet elegant atmosphere. Whether craving a light, casual lunch or a formal dinner, The Savannah Room offers a range of gourmet entreés, vegetarian and special selections, and superb desserts. The Courtyard Café offers hot entreés, soups, sandwiches, and salads served cafeteria-style. It is open everyday, offering complete breakfast as well as an evening edibles menu which includes pizza and hamburgers.

ACROSS CAMPUS ARE DINING COMMONS, CAFES, EATERIES AND RESTAURANTS SERVING VAST VARIETIES. CAMPUS EATERIES Have a sit down, or grab a quick bite. A pair of other venues join several spots to purchase food priced on a per-item basis. The Taste of Home Café, located on the fourth floor in the Tate Student Center, serves breakfast and lunch and features recipes submitted by families of UGA students. The UGA creamery (F3) (or “Reamery” as it is occasionally called) provides soups, sandwiches, salads, snacks and drinks every day during normal business hours. It also provides ice cream, but, sadly, it is no longer made on site. Here are the spots to buy food on a per-item basis: Dawg Bites in the Biological Sciences Building (D2); Dawg Snacks in the Tate Student Center (C3); Bone Appetit in Aderhold Hall (F3); Between the Pages in the lobby of the Main Library (B3); Dawg Bone in the College of Veterinary Medicine (F3); and The Village Market in Joe Frank Harris Commons (G2).

FOOD COURTS A la carte dining with a bevy of choices. Three food courts, two located in the Tate Student Center and the other in Joe Frank Harris Commons, offer many items. The Tate’s Bulldog Café (C3) is food services’ largest a la carte facility. It has Bulldog Grille (breakfast, wings burgers), Arch Deli (build your own sandwich), Giorgio’s Pizza, a soup and salad bar, desserts, a Chick-fil-A Express, and grab-and-go take out. The Tate Café food court, located in the newly expanded section of the student center, contains Barberitos Southwestern Grill, Larry’s Giant Subs, and Hotei’s, an Asian eatery developed by UGA Food Services. Red Clay Café, (G2) next to the Ramsey Center in Joe Frank Harris Commons, features three restaurants in one. Sweet Java Brown’s offers Seattle’s Best Coffee and tempting treats such as Edy’s premium soft serve ice cream, smoothies, brownies, cheesecake, cookies, muffins, and pastries; Between the Bread serves gourmet sandwiches made with an array of fresh ingredients, including freshly baked bread; and Tossing Greens highlights freshly chopped and custom made entrée and side salads.

JUST OFF CAMPUS

A selection of dining delights not too far away The Taco Stand will satisfy your cravings for Tex Mex whether you're a vegan, vegetarian or carnivore. The long-time Athenian institution has survived more than three decades of dishing out tacos, burritos, quesadillas and nachos. The restaurant has store fronts on North Milledge Avenue, Barnett Shoals Road, East Broad Street, along with a fourth store in nearby Watkinsville. The East Broad Street Taco Stand is the best known to the campus crowd, and is a favorite gathering place for late nights and game days. A few large television screens give patrons the ability to catch up on the game, or the weather, and the cheap food makes it a favorite of townies and students alike. The Taco Stand serves one of the best happy hour deals on margaritas in the city — though you'll want to share with a friend and make sure you can walk or catch a ride home. Dive into a plate of Mega Nachos covered with melted cheese, refried or black beans, olives, jalapenos, onions, sour cream and tomatoes for $5, or try the Extra-Hot Mega Burrito combo with chips and a drink for $7.50. The Blind Pig Tavern (B2) servers dish out Southern hospitality along with great food, whether you choose the West Broad Street or Baldwin Street location.

The Blind Pig Tavern is open daily and offers a selection of huge burgers ($7-$11), saucy wings (10 for $10) and sweet tea. If you'd like a snack, Blind Pig chefs fry plenty of finger-licking food in zero trans fat vegetable oil including chicken fingers (four for $10), fried mushrooms ($8 per order) and fried dill pickles ($8 per order). Customers can engage in some friendly competition twice a week, with trivia on 6 p.m. Sundays and sports trivia on 8 p.m. Wednesdays at the West Broad Street restaurant. The National touts a farm-to-table philosophy that ensures your plate is stocked with tasty local staples from chicken to garlic. The restaurant changes its menu with the season and available ingredients, maintaining an overall Mediterranean feel to the dishes. Hugh Acheson is a chef and partner of The National, as well as the Five & Ten in Athens and the Empire State South in Atlanta, Ga. Acheson has won various awards from the culinary world, appeared on Bravo's Top Chef Masters, judged Top Chef contestants and written a cookbook A New Tun in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented for Your Kitchen. For a fancy date night, try the dinner and movie combo that The National offers with next door theater, Cine. Movie ticket, tapas and two-course prix-fixe dinner costs $29 per person.

A Home Away From Home WHETHER YOU’RE ON CAMPUS OR OFF, THERE’S MANY OPTIONS WHEN FINDING A PLACE TO LIVE.

They’re scattered across all points of campus, up hills and in valleys, by stadiums, classrooms and pizza parlors. And while some rise high and others lay low, they all offer the same benefit – a place to call home. Thousands of students live in the University’s residence halls, and each community or village of rooms has a distinct charm they can share with their fellow Bulldogs.

RESIDENCE HALL

See your classes from you bedroom window. The Baxter Hill trio (D5), up the hill from the Miller Learning Center and Tate Student Center sits three residence halls furnished and fit for first-year students. Brumby, Creswell and Russell residence halls accommodate almost 3,000 students in double- and single-occupancy rooms.


HOUSING | UGA Built in 1966, Brumby Hall is a nine-story, all-female residence which houses students in double-occupancy rooms, each equipped with loftable beds, desks, dressers, air-conditioning as well as connections to cable television and high speed Internet service. Women in Brumby share common bath areas, and also have use of a vending area, a computer lab, student lounges, and several kitchen and laundry facilities. Named after Mary Ethel Creswell, the first woman to receive a degree from UGA, Creswell houses both men and women and is made up of double-occupancy rooms with individually controlled air conditioning units, high-speed Internet access, cable TV and 17-position loftable beds. Residents share common bath facilities, kitchens, vending areas, and laundry facilities, and have access to Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Academic Advising. Creswell features a limited number of suites equipped for complete access by disabled student residents, including wider access doors, improved door hardware, low-height fixtures, and private bathrooms with roll-in showers. Equipped with its own sand volleyball pit. Creswell is also near the award-winning Bolton Dining Hall. Russell houses men and women in double-occupancy rooms, with halls divided into colonies, further divided into neighborhoods, each with its own lounge and bathroom. A handful of the rooms in Russell Hall are double rooms equipped with private bathrooms. All rooms feature high-speed Internet, air conditioning, cable TV and 17-position loftable beds. Community features include a volleyball court, basketball and tennis courts, a computer lab, study rooms, kitchens, and a laundry facility.

Oglethorpe House (D4), affectionately dubbed “O-House” by residents, is a nine-story building arranged in suites composed of two bedrooms and a bathroom. A limited number of single rooms are also available. Each room comes furnished with two beds, two desks, two three-drawer pedestals, and one four-drawer dresser.

residence hall amenities include laundry rooms, study rooms, conference/meeting areas and computer labs. Made up of five individual residence halls – Boggs, Church, Hill, Lipscomb and Mell – the Hill Community (D4) are nearly identical four-story buildings each home to approximately 160 residents. Located at the center of campus, all five residence halls are a short walk from the Tate Student Center, Sanford Stadium, the University Bookstore, Clark Howell Hall and Legion Pool. The rooms are traditional doubles with built in furniture, highspeed Internet access and cable television, as well as a sink. Common bathrooms are on every floor and are cleaned daily by our custodial staff. These halls are equipped with laundry and kitchen facilities, vending machines, 24-hour security systems, and study lounges. A 24-hour service desk provides package pick-up, spare keys, and checkout for special equipment such as VCRs, video games, and movies. Resident Assistants are assigned to each floor and are on duty nightly to respond to resident concerns. In the heart of South Campus, Myers Community (E4) is home to innovative residential academic programs; Mary Lyndon Hall houses the French and Spanish language communities, Myers Hall is the magnet residence hall for the University Honors Program and the newly rebuilt Rutherford Hall is the location of Franklin Residential College. With historic Soule Hall, the residence halls of Myers Community deliver housing to approximately 850 students in a variety of coeducational and visitation arrangements. Myers rooms are arranged in a variety of suite and traditional arrangements, with the two-person double room the most common floor plan available. All rooms feature movable furniture and cable TV, and all halls have spacious lobbies, TV rooms, study areas, and recreation rooms.

Reed Community (C2) is composed of Payne, Reed and Morris halls. Payne and Reed are near the Tate Student Center and Sanford Stadium, and Morris is close to the Fine Arts building, Terry College of Business, Park Hall, and the School of Law. Residents of Reed Community are known for their involvement in countless campus issues and activities. When they’re not busy with their extracurricular activities, they can often be found studying or lounging, or playing a game of ultimate Frisbee on the Reed Quadrangle, a large grassy area bordered by Reed, Memorial, and Milledge halls. All three halls offer high-speed, in-room Internet access, lounges, study rooms, kitchens, laundry facilities, and vending machines. Family and graduate housing facilities (H3) are designed to provide convenient and comfortable living at a minimal cost. Nearly 1,300 graduate students and their families live in one- and twobedroom apartments in one of our three on-campus communities - University Village, Rogers Road, and Brandon Oaks.

APARTMENTS AND HOUSES

Become a part of the Athens community. There is no limit to the number of apartment complexes catering to student’s needs. Scattered all across Athens-Clarke County, apartment complexes typically require one-year leases (which usually start in August), and have apartments for people wanting to live by themselves, or with a group of friends. Depending on the complex, apartments can be furnished or unfurnished, and the cost of utilities can vary as well.

The Good Old Days AN EXCITING OFFERING FROM THE RED AND BLACK CAPTURES THE PERSONALITIES AND FLAVOR OF CAMPUS LIFE THROUGHOUT THE PAPER'S 120 YEAR HISTORY

by Carol Dadisman, Author, “Dear Old U-G-A”

DO YOU KNOW . . . ? . . . The origin of the tradition that no UGA freshman should walk under the Arch? . . . When females first applied to Georgia and when women students actually were admitted? . . . The university’s role in training military units for World War I and World War II? . . . When and how the bulldog belatedly became UGA’s mascot? . . . Which still active student organizations have the longest histories?

40 | University

of

GeorGia visitor’s GUide

Campus traditions, organizations, trends and transitions are explored in Dear Old U-G-A, a look at student life through the pages of The Red & Black from 1893-2013. Written by Carrol Dadisman, a former editor and publisher with Knight-Ridder Newspapers (and former Red & Black editor as well), Dear Old U-G-A is a 384-page tribute to the university, with more than 225 photos and thousands of references to the people who made history on campus. “In his splendid book, Dear Old U-G-A, Carrol Dadisman brings back a flood of memories for all generations who attended the University of Georgia,” wrote Tom Johnson, former president of Cable News Network. “Historical elements of campus life are recalled with warmth, humor, surprises, disappointments, triumphs and tragedies.” A perfect gift for any UGA grad, Dear Old U-G-A is available at the University of Georgia Bookstore and Amazon.com.


BOOKS | UGA THE ARCH TRADITION

Daniel Redfearn, a 1909 law school alumnus from Miami, traveled to Athens with only a suitcase and $156 in his pocket. A Redfearn family history records that, when he first approached the Arch, Daniel vowed he would never go through it until he had diploma in hand. His vow, disclosed to other students by legendary professor R. E. Park, evolved into the tradition that no freshman should walk under the Arch, first noted in The Red and Black in 1919. Redfearn also is credited in Reed’s history for founding the used bookstore that later became the “Co­Op,” popular campus store and snack bar in the mid­20th Century.

ADMISSION OF WOMEN

In the late 1880s, the Georgia Federation of Women’s Clubs and Colonial Dames began petitioning for admission of women to historically all­male UGA. Trustees and chancellors rejected their requests for almost 20 years before summer classes in education were offered to female teachers. Finally in 1914 Mary Dorothy Lyndon was the first summer student to receive a Master of Arts. It was four years later before UGA admitted female undergraduates. In 1919, Mary Ethel Creswell became the first to receive a B.S. degree in home economics. Women students were governed by separate sets of rules for dress, behavior and dormitory hours ­­and were effectively excluded from intercollegiate sports and some campus leadership positions ­­until the 1970s.

Preparation for military service has been part of the campus scene throughout UGA’s history. Early uniformed cadet units drilled on Herty Field, and the university’s first band was a cadet aggregation. At least two years of ROTC training was required for males through much of the 20th century. During World War I, Georgia’s welldeveloped military bat-

BOOKS | UGA BULLDOG MASCOT

Some early Georgia athletes remembered team associations with bulldogs, but the nickname and mascot were not adopted officially until 1920 long after Georgia Tech had Yellow Jackets and Auburn and Clemson had Tigers. Various breeds of bulldog with names like Stinky, Butch and Mike were school mascots for more than 30 years. Then in 1956 campus leaders and newlyweds Frank and Cecelia Seiler offered an English bulldog, given to them as a wedding present, as the Georgia mascot. Thus the “Uga” tradition now in its ninth generation of Seiler bulldogs was born.

EARLY STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

Demosthenian and Phi Kappa literary societies, formed in UGA’s first 20 years, are by far the oldest student organizations still meeting in historic structures on the north campus quadrangle. Most 19th century students belonged to one of the two, and their lively debates were the leading campus competition. If the walls of Phi Kappa Hall could talk, they would relate the saga of how a portrait of Gov. Eugene Talmadge appeared and disappeared repeatedly as society members debated Talmadge’s rocky relationship with the university in the 1930s and 1940s. “Dear Old U­G­A,” published by Red and Black Publishing Co. in June, is available at the R&B offices - 540 Baxter Street, in the UGA bookstore and other Georgia stores, and on Amazon.com.

UGA | SPECIAL EVENTS

Ready to make your day THE CAMPUS IS EQUIPPED WITH ALL THE NECESSARY NEEDS TO MAKE ANY EVENT A SPECIAL ONE.

There is little doubt the University of Georgia has supplied endless memories for many who have descended on its campus, whether it’s for study, work, pleasure or business. But it also offers up the opportunity to stage an important day in your life within its confines, as buildings and settings across campus are primed to make a your wedding, reunion, reception or conference unforgettable.

WEDDINGS

Does the university have what you need for that special day? It does. It only makes sense the place where people first meet the ones they plan to marry is also the spot they choose to exchange their vows, and when it comes to weddings, UGA has it covered. Whether it’s chapels or receptions, luncheons or engagement parties, the


SPECIAL EVENTS | UGA campus has the amenities needed to make the day a special one. The Chapel on North Campus is a good place to start. The site of several historic events in UGA’s history, the Chapel has seen its share of weddings in its time. It was built in 1832, and houses one of the world’s largest framed oil paintings, Interior of St. Peter’s Rome, painted by George Cooke. The Chapel facility and its calendar of events are managed by the staff of UGA’s Office of Performing Arts, and anyone interested in reserving the chapel should contact the rental office at (706) 542-2290 or by e-mail at chapel@uga.edu. The Georgia Center is also a great destination for happy couples to visit when planning their wedding. The Center includes a 200-room hotel, on-site dining options, banquet areas, conference rooms and auditoriums all under one roof, and can easily host wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridesmaid luncheons, rehearsal dinners and engagement parties. The hotel offers up block reservations and a complimentary honeymoon suite if the reception is booked at The Georgia Center. On-site catering is available with plenty of meal choices, while amenities include classic white, floor-length round specialty linens, prestige glassware and china, dinner tables, bistro tables, and chairs available based on each floor plan, departure basket for the bride and groom, including chilled champagne or sparkling cider and a formally dressed wait staff and headwaiter. The reception is set up for four hours of reception time and bar and food service concludes at the end of the third hour. But the UGA campus counts another spot for impending nuptials, surrounded by nature and exotic plants and flowers from the world over. The State Botanical Garden is perfect for wedding receptions, as it offers and array of places to celebrate the event.

DOWNTOWN | UGA Downtown Athens is remembered by many for what happens once the sun goes down – one of the top events held in its streets each year is called Twilight after all. But downtown in the light of day holds its own charm, as burgeoning clothing stores rub shoulders with jewelry spots, cafes, eateries, bars and places to simply sit and people watch. The area considered downtown (which is also a historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is bounded on the north by Dougherty Street, on the south by Broad Street and the UGA

campus, on the west by Pulaski Street, and on the east by Foundry Street. It boasts more than 65 specialty retailers, 55 eateries and 40 taverns and music venues. Once there, finding a place to match your interest isn't more than a few steps away. Looking for the latest fashion? Boutiques line the streets, including Fab'rik, Heery's, Cheeky Peach and The Red Dress Boutique, which all include designer brand names. Vintage shops such as Agora, Dynamite Clothing and Cillies host a variety of items for those

looking to find a hidden treasure. Jewelry stores abound, with Aurum Studios and Athena Jewelers offering wide selections, while specialtyshops such as Masada Leather and Native America Gallery hold a bevy of interesting finds. Looking for music? There's Wuxtry Records and Lo Yo-Yo Stuff if you want to listen, and Chick Music if you're looking for something to play. For those readers in the crowd, Jackson Street Books holds an array of used and rare books, as well as having some select music choices. Bizarro Wuxtry Comics, upstairs from the record store, has rooms full of comics and books for the young and old at heart. Finally there's Junkman's Daughter's Brother, a huge store on the edge of downtown that has, well, everything. Clothing, books, music, toys, lava lamps . . . it's a potpourri. Additional spots worth noting are the Classic Center and the Morton Theatre. The Classic Center is a meeting, special events, and performing arts venue providing entertainment and programs of all interests, with a running list of events throughout the year. The Morton was built in 1909-10 and is one of the few remaining historically black vaudeville theaters in the nation. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, musical greats Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway and Bessie Smith all performed in the Morton. Parking is abundant throughout, with on-street parking as well as two main parking garages (one with an entrance on College Avenue and the other an entrance on Washington Street). On-street parking rates are 75 cents per hour, which is enforced Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. Cars may stay in onstreet parking spaces for a maximum of two hours between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., but after 6 p.m. they can remain for more than two hours. Rates for the garage are $1.50 hourly and $10 daily. 48 | University

NIGHTLIFE | UGA While the university has been the focal point of Athens since the town’s creation, the past 30 years has seen it become known for something else – its music scene and the nightlife it creates. Some say it was the water, while others say it was the summer heat, or just a way to pass the time. Whatever the reason, there was something about Athens that made people want to play music, and just as many people eager to listen. The spark of the scene can be traced to Valentine’s Day, 1977. Five friends, calling themselves The B-52’s, played six songs (including Rock

Lobster) at a house party on Milledge Avenue. Within a year they would play New York City, and a year later would release their debut album to much fanfare worldwide. The B-52’s success started a small ripple of bands – Pylon, Method Actors, Love Tractor – that became a tidal wave with the creation of R.E.M. in 1980. Throughout the years Athens has been home to many bands and musicians – Widespread Panic, The Whigs, Neutral Milk Hotel, of Montreal, Drive By Truckers, Danger Mouse and Matthew Sweet – that found an audience beyond Athens’ borders.

Loving the nightlife WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN, THE PEOPLE COME OUT, AND IN DOWNTOWN ATHENS THERE’S PLENTY FOR THEM TO DO.

NIGHTLIFE | UGA GEORGIA THEATRE

Sitting on Lumpkin Street in the heart of downtown, the Georgia Theatre (A4) first hosted music in 1978 after years as a movie theater. It remained a music hall for a few years, hosting such luminaries as The Police and B.B. King, before becoming a movie house once again. In 1989 it became a music venue again. A fire inside the Theatre in the summer of 2009 shut it down, but the owners rebuilt the legendary music house and it opened again for business in August 2011. The Theatre offers a ground floor and several balconies to watch large shows, as well as a rooftop bar that regularly hosts its own set of bands. The view of Athens from the theatre's rooftop is worth pausing to take in the view with a snack or drink, even minus the music. Georgia Theatre's rooftop bar sells food from The Branded Butcher, a restaurant next door. Customers can enjoy smoked pork shoulder tacos (pork shoulder, cabbage, sriracha aioli, pickled onions with cilantro on corn tortillas, two for $5) and a Ranger India Pale Ale ($5) with a front-row seat of the city's skyline.

THE MELTING POINT

GREEN ROOM

Owner Wilmot Greene, designed the Green Room to feel intimate, like the Georgia Theatre's backstage. Comfy couches and music-themed decorations — such as lights made out of drum sets — give the Green Room's (A4) customers the chance to lounge and listen to talented up-and-coming bands. Bartenders can concoct a range of specialty drinks with fresh ingredients; from the Hound Dog (American Harvest Vodka with grapefruit juice for $7) to the Beast of Burden (Bulleit Bourbon, honey syrup, red wine, lemon juice, splash of soda and an orange wedge for $8). The bar sports plenty of domestic and imported beer choices, and offers combos of half-shots of liquor with a beer, such as the High 5 (Jameson Irish Whiskey and a Miller High Life for $5) — a choice popular with locals.

On the outskirts of downtown within the Foundry Park Inn, the Melting Point honors the Foundry’s roots, where blacksmiths crafted works such as the UGA Arch and the DoubleBarreled Cannon. The Melting Point’s atmosphere reflects this attention to detail – exposed bricks and original masonry from the 1850’s survive to this day – and now artisans perform their craft on stage. The multi-tiered inside offers a myriad of seating options fine tuned to meet the needs of each show – music fans are never more than 53 feet from the stage with clear views and ideal acoustics. There are tables on the main floor as well, and seating is available on a first come first serve basis for some shows.

What’s a Gastropub? It’s a bar and restaurant that serves high-end beer and food.

UNUSUAL PLACES | UGA THE TREE THAT OWNS ITSELF

Subject of an enduring legend, the tree has become a familiar landmark on the corner of Dearing and Finley streets (C5). The 50-foot, white oak, also called the Jackson Oak, occupies a site less than a quarter-acre in size within the Finley Street right-of-way. According to legend, University of Georgia professor William Jackson lived across Dearing Street from an oak tree, which he often climbed as a child and grew to love. This attachment prompted Jackson to deed to the tree the land on which it grew. When a 1942 storm brought the old tree down, one of its acorns was saved by the Junior Ladies Garden Club, who tended the sprout and planted the sapling on the original site in 1946. The Tree That Owns Itself has been locally designated as a Historic Landmark.

THE DOUBLE-BARRELLED CANNON

The cannon (A3), the only known one of its kind, was designed by John Gilleland. Cast in the Athens foundry, it was intended to fire simultaneously two balls connected by a chain which would “mow down the enemy somewhat as a scythe cuts wheat.” It failed for lack of a means of firing both barrels at the exact instant. It was tested in a field, but the lack of precise simultaneity caused uneven explosion of the propelling charges, which snapped the chain and gave each ball an erratic and unpredictable trajectory. Lacking a workable firing device, the gun was a failure. It was presented to the City of Athens where it has been for almost a century,
