As a ticket, we strive to better the University of Georgia through increased representation and engagement; unifying all that is UGA. We aspire to listen with the intention of understanding and addressing student concerns. Strive seeks to be the direct liaison between the university and student body in order to continuously improve upon this institution, we call home.

As we strive to go beyond the arch, we will work with local restaurants in the Athens community with the intention of having these restaurants partake in the Paw Points Program as a form of payment. As a ticket, we propose modeling this initiative after South Carolina and Vanderbilt’s system of student card payment in order to provide dining accommodations after dining halls on campus have closed. With the Paw Points Program, it will encourage students to support the local Athens’ Clarke County community and businesses. Partnering with the University Police, we intend on establishing an emergency text system for students. As students’ safety is a top priority at the University, a listserv with participating students will alert members of any sort of crimes, hazardous weather, and other life threatening events. We place a heavy emphasis on ensuring that all aspects of student well-being are prioritized. Our ticket strives to combine the offices of the Professional Clothing Closet, Fresh Express, and Bulldawgs Basics into one location on campus. These resources are essential for the physical health and mental health of students within this institution. In addition to combining these resources already available on campus, we are actively seeking to expand well-being services to students of all colleges.

  2. Advocate for introduction of alcohol sales in Sanford Stadium for better regulation.
  3. Introduce Mini-Mester courses which run for 5 weeks and are offered twice per semester, counting for one credit hour and encouraging students to explore interests outside their major, pick up practical life skills, or boost their GPA without a major credit hour investment.
