Information from

Psychology and Journalism

Arkansas Tailgate Party

Game day Parking/Travel Because the population of Athens nearly doubles on football game days, driving around campus and Athens can be difficult. Try to minimize travel on these days; if you need to use your car, however, be aware of game times. It will be difficult to leave campus as game time approaches, and can be very difficult to get back on campus after half-time.

Stegeman Coliseum

Join us on Saturday, September 18th for a Georgia vs. Arkansas tailgate party in the community room! Kick-off is at 12pm noon. We’ll hang out, cook some burgers and hot dogs, watch the game, and even have some games to play if American Football isn’t your sport of choice! Come and celebrate being a Georgia Bulldog by taking part in this UGA tradition. Come for a little while or stay for the whole time; we’re just looking forward to seeing you there!

Free Karate Classes Shorinji Ryu Karatedo is the art of striking, restraining, or throwing an attacker, based on the martial traditions of Okinawa and Japan. Its philosophical aims are selfdiscipline, awareness, and the protection of human life.


The Budokai, a Recreational Sports club, has offered free karatedo classes at UGA for more than 25 years. Your student activity fees help fund this and other club sports– take advantage of this unique resource!
