Dawgs Ditch the Dumpster and Donate Needs You!

Dawgs Ditch the Dumpster and Donate is a campus-wide end-of-year donation initiative that gives students the opportunity to donate unwanted items directly to the Athens-Clarke community instead of throwing them in the Dumpster to be taken to a landfill. This year, University Housing is partnering with UGA Hillel, Give and Go, Keep America Beautiful, and Goodwill of North Georgia to collect as many donations as possible. So, how can you get involved?

First of all, donate items! We will be accepting everything and all you have to do is drop off the unwanted items at one of 10 Goodwill trailers set up around campus. Familiarize yourself with the "donation station” outside of your residence hall and donate the items you no longer have a need for!

We also need volunteers to help out with some of the effort. It’s easy to get involved and perks include food, a Goodwill gift card for the first 100 volunteers, and a free t-shirt! See the Dawgs Ditch the Dumpster and Donate page for more information. And here’s the direct link to the volunteer form.

Stay On Campus for Summer

Summer school in Athens offers students the opportunity to focus on a difficult class, to slow down the pace and to experience some of the best Athens has to offer all year. Living on-campus means no sitting in traffic in a hot car, no outrageous power bills and plenty of opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

An email with instructions will be sent to current residents on April 1, 2014 to complete an online sign-up form by no later than April 6, 2014.

Students not currently living on campus may register in The Dawg House.

Oglethorpe House will be open for residents living on campus for summer 2014. Students must be enrolled in at least one course per summer session to qualify for housing. Busbee, McWhorter and Rooker Halls will continue their 11.5 month contracts through summer 2014. Vandiver Hall in ECV will be closed for summer 2014.

Check out the schedule and rate chart; all summer school rent will be billed directly through the student accounts system, with payments due on the dates established by the Bursar’s Office.
