From Four Towers

What is your legacy? How will your story be told? The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences plays a role each day in establishing a lasting legacy not only in our state, but around the world, through research, academics and Extension.  
From mapping the genomes of peanuts and other crops to establishing protocols for fighting harmful pathogens that could impact our food supply, the research done at CAES is life-changing.

Faculty and staff enable students to determine their own routes to success in their chosen majors. These students are following our paths and experiencing incredible learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom environment.

UGA Cooperative Extension spreads CAES’s research-based knowledge around the state. From working with our youth to connecting with growers, Extension furthers the CAES legacy every day.

This is my last note as president of the CAES Alumni Association. It has been a great honor to work with you, and I am proud of the board’s legacy. Through the board’s leadership, we have awarded six scholarships, revised the association’s bylaws and created a strategic plan to guide the future of the association during the last year of my presidency.

Would you like to become part of the alumni association and add a new chapter to your story? Think about how you can share your time, talent and treasure with the college, then please contact our alumni director, Suzanne Griffeth, at 706-542-5264 or
