Your source of community and support
as you navigate UGA


We are here to help you have a college experience that is supportive and meaningful!

Dawg Packs give incoming students like you an easy opportunity to build meaningful connections with peers who can relate to your journey and be introduced to the abundance of resources available to you as a UGA student.

Free to join, sign up now!


Upon joining the Dawg Pack, you will receive an invitation to a group chat to begin connecting with peers before classes begin in the spring. This group chat will also be a place where you can get your questions about navigating UGA answered and find out about exciting events happening on campus!


Join us every week from January 11, 2024 to February 15, 2024 for a chance to connect with peers in-person, build community, and get support navigating your transition to UGA. We will meet Thursdays at 5:30 pm. Full details will be posted in the Dawg Pack group chat!


Dawg Packs are facilitated by Transition Leaders, experienced peers who are passionate about helping you navigate UGA by answering your questions and sharing their tips and strategies for getting connected on campus.


The Spring Admit Dawg Pack is open to any spring admit first-year student. Navigate your transition to UGA alongside peers who understand the challenges of joining the campus community mid-academic year while discovering the wealth of resources UGA has to offer.
