PedPlazaPedestrian Walk Plaza Construction Update

Crossing between the east and west sides of campus became easier this week when a temporary pedestrian walkway opened Monday, connecting the Library and Administration Building. According to Greg Carver, Business Affairs Office, a walkway will be maintained across the mall, subject to shifting north or south as construction progresses. The plaza remains on schedule for completion by December 10.

UGA President Visits Campus


According to Dr. Michael F. Adams, President of the University of Georgia, people are losing sight of the importance of higher education for the public good, not just the private good.

In remarks September 3 on the College of Coastal Georgia campus, Dr. Adams noted that the UGA founding charter was premised on the assumption that a government only does well when its citizenry is educated. Education - then and now - is fundamental to making sound decisions that benefit society as a whole, not just an elite few, he asserts.



Southern Storytellers Comes to Campus

Dick Yarborough
Oct. 7, 2010
"Why Ray Charles Never Sang 'Ohio on My Mind'...and other important facts about the South"


Humor columnist Dick "I don't make this stuff up" Yarborough is the inaugural storyteller for a new series of entertaining presentations open to the community. Yarbrough, whose column appears regularly in The Brunswick News and Georgia Trend magazine, takes the Southeast Georgia Conference Center stage Thursday, October 7, at 5:30 p.m. 

The $25 tickets for the event, available through the Advancement Office, include a cocktail reception following Yarbrough's presentation. Proceeds benefit the College Foundation Annual Fund.


Upcoming  Storytellers include Ronda Rich, November 11; Dr. William Rawlings, January 20; and Kate Cambell, February 17.


More Than Textbooks, Paper and Pens Bookstore Art


The new, expanded campus bookstore is not only the primary resource for course materials and study aids, but now also for sportswear and other items touting the new College logo at prices to fit students' budgets.


Shoppers will find sets of Mariner sails on a variety of shorts, shirts, athletic gear, caps, water bottles and notebooks. For portability, options range from wheeled back packs to lightweight book bags. There's also a selection of colorful, reusable shopping totes and eye-popping file folders in hues neither manila nor vanilla.


Displays include flash cards, index cards, and value-priced seasonal and all-occasion greeting cards at only 50 cents each. Unexpected rain showers can be countered by popping in to the bookstore to purchase an umbrella. From Tylenol® to tanning lotions, snacks to toy Teddy bears dressed in nursing attire, the bookstore shelves brim with the whimsical as well as the practical - well worth a wander across campus to Andrews Hall to catch the weekly sales specials.
