UGA Tifton Campus Graduation Reception: The reception to celebrate the accomplishments of our most recent graduates was held on Sunday, May 8 (Mother's Day). There was an excellent turnout of family and friends of the graduates, as well as several faculty and staff from campus. Dean Scott Angle and wife Teresa were in attendance. In addition to Dean Angle, our faculty speaker was Dr. Jason Peake, and speaking on behalf of the students was Rebekah Estes. It was a very enjoyable event, and the gift of a college graduate was well received by the mothers in the audience. Thanks to Amber Dowd and Leanne Chafin for organizing the reception.

The Young Scholars Program is underway on the UGA Tifton Campus. I had the pleasure of welcoming this impressive group of young people to the campus on May 12. The eighteen high school students are partnered with scientists and technicians across the campus for an exciting time of learning about science through active involvement in research projects on campus. Thanks to Susan Reinhardt and her staff for coordinating the program, and to those of you who are sharing your time and talent with this enthusiastic group of young people.

UGA Tifton Campus new student orientation will be held on Friday, July 8 from 11 am to 3 pm. This orientation is for new students in our campus academic programs who will start classes this fall, and is their opportunity to be advised and learn the details necessary to be a student on our campus.

The UGA Tifton Campus radio spot on WTIF radio is now on every weekday at about 9:35 a.m. on WTIF radio (107.5 FM).
