Protect Your Eyes With Sunglasses

Sunlight reflecting off sand and water further increases exposure to UV radiation and increases your risk of developing eye problems. 

  • Choose sunglasses labeled with a UVA/UVB rating of 100% to get the most UV protection.
  • Do not mistake dark-tinted sunglasses as having more UV protection. The darkness of the lens does not indicate its ability to shield your eyes from UV rays. Many sunglasses with light-colored tints, such as green, amber, red, and gray can offer the same UV protection as very dark lenses.
  • Understand that pricier sunglasses don’t ensure greater UV protection.
  • Even if you wear contact lenses, wear sunglasses that offer UV protection.
  • Know that sunglasses are the most effective when worn with a wide-brim hat and sunscreen.

Facility Reservation staff are still reviewing each event that migrated from R25 to 25Live to ensure all information is accurate and all dates are populating according to the recurrences requested. At this point in time we have reviewed 250 of the 500 events. While those events are being reviewed, Facility Staff will confirm or deny only new requests that have been entered into 25Live for the UPCOMING week, in the order that they were received. Facility Reservations will continue to review event requests daily to ensure that events scheduled this week and next week are approved within 3 business days. We hope to have all events that migrated from R25 to 25Live reviewed by the end of the week so Facility Reservation staff may begin the process of approving all NEW events that have been requested in 25Live.

25Live is currently only allowing event requests through December 31, 2019. We will open the event scheduling tool in early August for scheduling events 365 days in advance. Look for additional information to be announced on Frontpage.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this very important review. In the meantime, we are still conducting trainings (click here to register) and strongly encourage everyone to attend. 

Please email jen.yearwood@gcsu.edu if you have any questions related to the 25Live system and functionality. We are asking everyone to email facilityreservations@gcsu.edu for any facility reservation questions, as this goes to Lisa Castillo and Shannon Gardner (back-up approver in 25Live). They will review questions and respond as time permits over the next few days.

25Live launched on Wednesday, July 10, and so far, everything is running well in the new system; however, the implementation team has run into a few challenges with events that were scheduled in R25 that aren’t showing up in 25Live. Until we can get this corrected, we are unable to approve new events in the 25Live system. The team is working diligently to get this completed but it is very labor intensive and requires us to review over 500 events, one by one in each system. We are hopeful that we can start approving events in the new system early next week.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this unexpected challenge. In the meantime, we are still conducting trainings (click here to register) and strongly encourage everyone to attend. 

Please email jen.yearwood@gcsu.edu if you have any questions related to the 25Live system and functionality. We are asking everyone to email facilityreservations@gcsu.edu for any facility reservation questions, as this goes to Lisa Castillo and Shannon Gardner (back-up approver in 25Live). They will review questions and respond as time permits over the next few days.

For the second time in program history, the Georgia College Men's Basketball team has received the Team Academic Excellence Award from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the organization announced Thursday.

The honor is given to teams in the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA that achieved a 3.0 or better GPA for the 2018-19 season. The Bobcats last won the honor in its first year of existence, the 2012-13 season.

The Bobcats were the lone Peach Belt Conference (PBC) school on the list this season, and just one of three from the three conferences in the Southeast Region, joining Barton College and Newberry College.
