"Give that Dawg a Bone" Card Writing Campaign Volunteers Needed

The UGA Admissions Alumni Partnership is excited to sponsor the “Give that Dawg a Bone” card writing campaign. Last year’s alumni volunteers wrote notes of congratulations to nearly 2,230 accepted students in 34 states. It’s time to gear up again to encourage these talented high students to choose UGA. The Admissions Office is requesting alumni who are interested in writing notes to these newly accepted students. The campaign runs from January to April 2015. Cards, stamped envelopes and a sample message will be sent to each volunteer with the list of students.

If you would like to participate, please send the following information to Susan Byus, Regional Recruiter, via email to
