Looking for a fun free activity on the weekend? Look no further than UGA’s own Tate Theatre!
Tate Theatre screens popular movies from the last couple months (i.e A Star is Born and Crazy Rich Asians) and some iconic classics (i.e Shrek and Space Jam) on Friday, Staurday and Sunday nights! The best part is screenings are FREE for students and only $3 for non-students. So grab a few friends and catch up on all the movies you missed in theaters! What better way to spend an evening?
After stepping foot on Sanford Stadium at Freshmen Welcome, we are given the G Book – the official traditions handbook of the University of Georgia. The last tradition in this book will lead us to attend an event known as a “Dawgs After Dark,” which is planned and hosted by the students of University Union, the student programming board on campus. Comprised of a group of dedicated students who strive to put on events that allow students to make these the “best four-ish years” of their lives, University Union held their first Dawgs After Dark of Spring 2019 on Friday, January 25th with a Universal Studios theme in the Tate Student Center.
What is a “Dawgs After Dark”?
Planned by the Late Night Committee of University Union, whose origins stem from providing students with an alternative to at-risk behavior in Athens, a Dawgs After Dark (D.A.D.) embraces a theme then provides various activities and keepsakes for attendees to enjoy. Catering to undergraduate students, graduate students, and local families, this event is free for all UGA students and $5 for non-UGA students. University Union took over three levels of the Tate Student Center last Friday and filled these areas with DIY stations, inflatables, photo booths, food, and more. The following are some highlights from this specific event:
Make Your Own Wand (Harry Potter)
Optimus Prime vs. Megatron (Transformers)
Friend or Foe? (King Kong and Scooby Doo)
Capture the Moment (Mamma Mia!)
Embrace the University of Georgia tradition and attend one of these free events! University Union will be hosting two more Dawgs After Darks this semester.
