Nearly 75 people participated in the Second Annual New to F&A Day. The orientation program is open to staff members who have worked in the division for less than two years. Community leaders escorted participants on a walking tour of downtown and then joined them for breakfast and a brief program at Trumps. The Physical Plant’s Reception Hall was packed with participants for lunch. Door prizes – including gift certificates to the UGA Bookstore and tickets to two home football games – were awarded to lucky recipients. Following the lunch, participants divided into small groups for tours of the operations of the Physical Plant’s Chicopee headquarters. The Physical Plant is Finance and Administration’s largest division, and the tour helped to inform participants of the scope of work that goes on behind the scenes at UGA. Student guides from the UGA Visitors Center introduced participants to historic North Campus. New to F&A Day is planned by members of the Finance and Administration Diversity Committee.

Senior Vice President Tim Burgess shared information on the structure of Finance and Administration as well as its goals and challenges in a presentation to the participants at the Chapel. The program concluded with a bus tour of campus and a stop at the Campus Services Fair, where participants experienced a sampling of the food and many other services provided by UGA’s Auxiliary and Administrative Services units.
