It takes 200 volunteers two weeks to transform the 1839 Mansion into a showcase of the season. Georgia College faculty, staff and 50 students work alongside numerous community members to get it ready for thousands of visitors who’ll come to see its bright lights and holiday cheer.

Students from Dr. Peter Rosado Flores’ inorganic chemistry lab and Matt Forrest’s printmaking class collaborated recently to discover the natural chemistry between art and science.

The Office of Health Promotion, in partnership with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Active Minds, TWLOHA and ATO would like to invite you to hear Taylor Wesley, a Mental Wellness speaker on Thursday, Nov. 30 at 7:15 p.m. at the Depot. Taylor's tag line is "If you take the 'I' out of mental illness and replace it with 'we,' it creates mental wellness." She is the former Miss Homecoming from Auburn University and speaks about how her struggles with alcohol and mental health problems have impacted her life and encourages students to learn healthy coping strategies and to get help early on. More information about Taylor can be found here: https://www.taylor-wesley.com/

This is the final "Minding Your Mental Health" series for this semester. Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend. This would be a great opportunity for faculty to offer extra credit for students that attend the event. We hope you will join us for this exciting event to close out the semester on a good note, and learn how to better identify when we or someone else needs help.

Georgia College is one of the few non-research universities to host the Southeastern section of the American Physical Society (SESAPS). The growth of the physics program was the compelling reason for identifying Milledgeville for this year's location for the conference, which takes place Nov. 16 - 18, 2017. 

For the past two years Georgia College has sent more students to the SESAPS meetings than any other university. The objective of the section meeting is the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of physics within the Southeastern region of the United States, including the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The section brings together physicists once a year for a November meeting. Graduate and undergraduate students are always welcome and are encouraged to attend this meeting.
