Welcome to the University of Georgia

Jere W. Morehead
University of Georgia

Welcome to the University of Georgia and congratulations on the hard work you have done that has placed you at one of America’s best public universities.  I very much look forward to sharing this academic experience with you.

You are here because you have already proven yourself to be among the best students at your respective high schools.  Now you enter an environment where the academic expectations are much higher, but we selected you because we believe you are capable of success at the University of Georgia.  You are embarking on a remarkable academic experience with a wide range of social and extracurricular activities available to you; I hope you will take full advantage of them.

It is also important to understand that you are a citizen both of this campus and of the Athens community.  You now represent the University of Georgia wherever you go. For more than 200 years, Athens and UGA have grown together, developing a relationship that benefits both. It is important that we nourish that relationship.

It is a dream come true for me to have the honor of serving as President of this great university.  As an alumnus of UGA, I take great pride in its academic standing, its beautiful campus, its talented faculty and staff and its outstanding students.  I wish you all the best.

Jere W. Morehead
