Recycle Mania 2015 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Recycle Mania,” engages students, faculty and staff across the nation through friendly-competition to achieve their state and nationwide initiative of promoting waste-reducing activities. From Feb. 1 to March 28, UWG will participate in Recycle Mania with a clear objective: encouraging our campus community to take a closer look at issues in conjunction with human consumerism and associated waste. Students have the opportunity to contribute ideas and take a step in the right direction to lessen humankind’s ecological footprint. Over this 8-week period, all participating colleges will report the amount of recycling and trash collected each consecutive week. The collected waste is then distributed in data for various categories, including who recycles the most per capita ”UWG division”, as well as which schools have the best recycling rate of total waste and which schools generate the least amount of combined trash and recycling.

The First Southerners: Creeks and Cherokees In Early Georgia
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Dr. Ben Steere of UWG’s Anthropology Department will present the program, The First Southerners: Creeks and Cherokees in Early Georgia on Wednesday, April 1, at 11:00 a.m. at the University of West Georgia’s Ingram Library. 
The Muscogee Creek and Cherokee are famously known as two of the "five civilized tribes" of the early nineteenth-century Southeastern United States, and both played important and active roles in Georgia's history. These two societies share common cultural traditions that date back thousands of years, but by the eighteenth century, the Muscogee Creek and Cherokee were strikingly different in significant ways.  Archaeological and historical research show that Creeks and Cherokees used very different strategies to adapt to the changing political and social landscape of early Georgia. This program is sponsored by Ingram Library’s Penelope Melson Society.  There is no admission fee and special public parking is being provided.  For further information, visit www.westga.edu/library or contact chendric@westga.edu or (678) 839-5337.
