The Big Day is Here!

Yes, today is a big day, both for UGA and admissions. Fall classes begin today, and the campus is full of life (and full of students!). It is exciting to see all of the new and returning students on campus, and life is now back to normal.

On the admissions side of things, the 2010 freshman application is now available! As I have said in the past, it is not important to be the first one to apply. UGA Admissions is not like Disney World; being first in line does not mean anything, and there is no FastPass option. But I know that everyone is happy to have the application up, both on our side and yours. The Foundation Fellowship/Bernard Ramsey Honors Scholarship application is also be available as of today. Good luck, and let us know if you have any questions!


  1. I am a new 2010 freshman as of yesterday and just completed my housing application. I picked Creswell as my first choice and wondering what the chances were of me being placed in a suite room. There was not a preference when picking that particular residence hall.

  2. New. Freshman: At this point, housing could not say, as they still need to see who applies for housing both as returning students and new students. We will have one new res. hall opening, so this should be both exciting and a positive for more space and options for students. But this is really a housing question, and you would need to give them more time before they could say.
