Senior Signature for Tate Center Plaque - Deadline Extended to June 30th

All May, August and December 2020 undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to include their name on the plaque. The deadline has been extended to June 30th. The first Senior Signature plaque was created in 1991 with just a few hundred signatures. Today, thousands of graduating students make a difference by donating a minimum $50 gift to the university. This gift includes a designation option so that graduates can give to any school, college, department, program, or scholarship that has had a personal impact on them during their time at UGA.
