The weather. August in Georgia can be sweltering, but generally speaking, the temperature hangs around 80-90° F. Before you pack, take a quick look at the weather. Bring a sweater/hoodie/jacket for classroom time. The AC is powerful and it’s easy to get chilled.
Opening Reception: Please remember that our opening reception is only for students, faculty, staff, and guest speakers. We want to get together to meet and greet. Thank you for understanding.
The opening reception is at Trappeze Pub at 269 Hull St. The van will shuttle everyone back and forth from the hotel. Please be ready to be picked up at the Hotel Indigo around 5:30 to 5:45 p.m. on Sunday, July 30. If it’s not raining, it’s a nice walk from the hotel.
Printing needs: If you need Anne to print anything, send it before you arrive in Athens, along with the number of copies you need printed. Make sure you have done all your updates and revisions BEFORE you send it for printing.
How are we getting back and forth to campus? A UGA van and the Hotel Indigo shuttle will shuttle participants from the Hotel Indigo every morning starting at 7:45 a.m. We will make back and forth runs to the Journalism building until everyone has arrived. Anyone who is a part of the residency can park in the Hotel Indigo parking lot whether you are staying there or not. (Do not park across the tiny street from the entrance to the Hotel Indigo, because it is not the hotel’s parking lot.)
In the evening, we will have the same van available to shuttle people back to the Hotel Indigo. Please note you might have to wait a few minutes to catch the next available shuttle.
The shuttle will not run otherwise unless there is an emergency. We must reserve the van for our special guest speakers and faculty. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in advance.
Parking on campus at the Hull Street Deck is $10 per day, payable at the kiosk located on each floor of the parking deck.
Lunch: There are lots of options for lunch. You can go into downtown Athens, https://www.visitathensga.com/restaurants/downtown-athens-restaurants/, or order from Doordash, or our local version: https://www.orderbulldawgfood.com/. Bulldawg Food has more local places and the drivers know the campus a bit better than a random Doordasher.
Breakfast: Provided Monday through Friday, beginning at 8 a.m., platters of food from various places. Monday and Friday it will be from Flying Biscuit, Tuesday will be from McAlisters, Wednesday from Mama’s Boy, and Thursday from Jason’s Deli. We’ll have vegetarian options and as many options for vegans as is possible.
BRING A WATER BOTTLE: There will not be bottled water available, so make sure to grab a water container with a lid for yourself. There are filtered water dispensers on each floor of the building.
COVID protocols for UGA: We strongly encourage you get vaccinated to protect everyone. No one is going to look at you funny if you feel like you want to mask up. See the UGA Coronavirus website for more details.
