Discover key places around Grady by playing #GoGrady

How well do you know Grady? We’ve created a fun way for new and returning students to discover things about the college: the #GoGrady scavenger hunt.

Look for 16 logos strategically placed around the first four floors of the Journalism building.  When you find one, tweet or post a selfie of the location on Twitter or Instagram with the #GoGrady hashtag, or add a Snap with the geofilter to your story. These clues will steer you in the right direction:

    1. A lab that trains students in the latest mobile newsgathering and storytelling techniques.  It also houses the office of the director of the James M. Cox Jr. Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management and Leadership.

    2. This space, dedicated on Dec. 2, 2015, with a lecture delivered by Tom Johnson (ABJ ’63), features high-tech media display walls and a convertible wall.

    3. The office of the director of the Sports Media Certificate program, located on the second floor.

    4. This Center’s mission is “To encourage the development of a free and independent press throughout the world.” It is located on the fourth floor.

    5. A suite of offices where you can learn about graduate and terminal degree opportunities.

    6. Tucked away in Studio 100, the headquarters of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).

    7. The Don. E. Carter (ABJ ’38) Executive Suite.

    8. A bulletin board on the second floor with information about the new interdisciplinary certificate in Applied Politics and Public Affairs Communications.

    9. Home to the prestigious awards honoring the best in digital and electronic media.

    10. This Center, located on the first floor, houses some of Grady's most imporant health communication research.

    11. The studio of the only local TV newscast focusing on events in Athens and the surrounding Northeast Georgia region.

    12. The motto of this Institute is “Make something work. Then make it work better.”

    13. A suite of offices housing academic advisors.

    14. An innovative social media monitoring lab that opened in 2016.

    15. A student lounge featuring a script Grady logo designed by an alumna of the New Media Institute.

    16. Located on the first floor, a lab designed for researching gaming and virtual reality experiences.

Watch UGA Grady’s Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat accounts for opportunities to win Grady swag throughout the weeklong game, which ends on Aug.18.

As a special incentive, any student who participates in at least one of the following ways will be entered into a drawing for lunch with Dean Charles Davis:

•     Message a Snap to @UGAGrady with the Go Grady geofilter.

•     Use the #GoGrady hashtag on Twitter or Instagram.

Good luck finding ‘em all!
