Start Day
World War II Exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" (Multi-Day Event)
The travelling panel exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" will be on display at UWG's Ingram Library from October 13 through December 7.  There is no admission fee.  The exhibit will include displays of artifacts from local collectors of World War II memorabilia.  Three programs will be presented in conjunction with the exhibit.

"Over Here and Over There" commemorates the contribution of Georgia and Georgians to the fight to win World War II, the bloodiest and most globally sweeping conflict in human history.  Georgians, along with others throughout the nation, served in multiple ways -- as soldiers, as workers producing the materiel needed to wage war, and as citizens implementing patriotic initiatives within their homes and communities.  All were "soldiers" bound together in pursuit of "one great cause."

"Over Here and Over There" was created by the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia, Dalton State College, and the Northeast Georgia History Center at Brenau University.  The exhibit is sponsored by the Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, the Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.

Start Day
Environmental Awareness Week (Multi-Day Event)

UWG'S School of the Arts is sponsoring an Environmental Awareness Week, October 24 through November 1.

See the full Schedule of Events.

The week kicks off with visiting artist Scott Wade, the so-called Dirty Car Artist, who creates fantastic images on the windows of dirty, dusty cars. Wade will be performing two times during the week—Friday, October 24, at the Carrollton High School Football Game and Monday, October 27, on campus. (Look for the Nissan Leaf around the Campus Center and a guy covering it in dirt.) He joins us through a collaboration with the Ingram Library and Phi Kappa Phi.

Also, documentary filmmaker Zach Godschall will be on campus on Tuesday, October 28, for a screening of his fabulous Water Like Stone, which chronicles the lives of fishermen in southern Louisiana, as climate change alters their landscape and livelihood. Godschall joins us as part of the inaugural Stone Visiting Artist Series, thanks to the generosity of local patrons Andrea and Michael Stone.

Wednesday, October 29, sees painter/photographer/filmmaker Kim Anno arrive on campus for a screening of some of her latest video work. Anno is intensely interested in climate change, water conservation, and the role of art in ongoing environmental discourse.

Then, in collaboration with the Department of Biology, the Honors College, Risk Management, and the Sustainability Council, we are hosting the first-ever plastic bottle sculpture contest, Thursday, October 30, by the Campus Center. That's right: thousands of bottles will be at the ready by the Campus Center for a battle to create the most impressive sculpture. Come watch teams compete to make elaborate sculptures out of recycled plastic bottles.

The week concludes with our campus's yearly Interdisciplinary Conference (hosted by Foreign Languages and Literatures) and Dean Hendricks' Humanities Symposium, both of which center on the confluence of Humanities and climate change, art and science, worlds and words. The conference runs from Thursday, October 30, to Saturday, November 1.

Wednesday, October 29, sees painter/photographer/filmmaker Kim Anno arrive on campus for a screening of some of her latest video work. Anno is intensely interested in climate change, water conservation, and the role of art in ongoing environmental discourse.

Then, in collaboration with the Department of Biology, the Honors College, Risk Management, and the Sustainability Council, we are hosting the first-ever plastic bottle sculpture contest, Thursday, October 30, by the Campus Center. That's right: thousands of bottles will be at the ready by the Campus Center for a battle to create the most impressive sculpture. Come watch teams compete to make elaborate sculptures out of recycled plastic bottles.

The week concludes with our campus's yearly Interdisciplinary Conference (hosted by Foreign Languages and Literatures) and Dean Hendricks' Humanities Symposium, both of which center on the confluence of Humanities and climate change, art and science, worlds and words. The conference runs from Thursday, October 30, to Saturday, November 1.

World War II Exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" (Multi-Day Event)
The travelling panel exhibit, "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" will be on display at UWG's Ingram Library from October 13 through December 7.  There is no admission fee.  The exhibit will include displays of artifacts from local collectors of World War II memorabilia.  Three programs will be presented in conjunction with the exhibit.

"Over Here and Over There" commemorates the contribution of Georgia and Georgians to the fight to win World War II, the bloodiest and most globally sweeping conflict in human history.  Georgians, along with others throughout the nation, served in multiple ways -- as soldiers, as workers producing the materiel needed to wage war, and as citizens implementing patriotic initiatives within their homes and communities.  All were "soldiers" bound together in pursuit of "one great cause."

"Over Here and Over There" was created by the Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia, Dalton State College, and the Northeast Georgia History Center at Brenau University.  The exhibit is sponsored by the Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, the Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.

Mobilizing the Arsenal of Democracy
Historian Charles Chamberlain, a specialist in Southern history and World War II, will speak on "Mobilizing the Arsenal of Democracy: How Georgia was Transformed Economically and Socially by World War II" on Tuesday, October 28, at 11:00 a.m. at UWG's Ingram Library.  This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibit "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" on display at Ingram Library October 13 through December 7.

Dr. Chamberlain will explore Georgia's profound economic and social transformation by focusing on the impact of American mobilization for World War II.  He will discuss how President Franklin Roosevelt used America's mobilization for war to raise the standard of living within the American South.  Dr. Chamberlain will additionally address how Georgia's residents, in turn, utilized a variety of strategies to gain economic security and improve their lives.  World War II left a legacy of energy production, military training, manufacturing, and improved educational opportunities in the American South.  Georgia emerged from the war as one of the South's most economically vibrant states, on the road to becoming a major corporate and manufacturing center.  

This program is presented by Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.

Dr. Wallach, the author and editor of numerous books, articles, and book reviews on American foodways including "How America Eats: A Social History of U.S. Food and Culture" will discuss rationing and price controls on food and other commodities during World War II as a strategy for winning the war.  She will address the origins of rationing, its challenges, and the manner in which many Americans came to embrace the concept, seeing themselves as domestic soldiers waging World War II on the home front.

This program is presented by Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society and is supported by the Carroll EMC Foundation, the Georgia Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and through appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly.

The week kicks off with visiting artist Scott Wade, the so-called Dirty Car Artist, who creates fantastic images on the windows of dirty, dusty cars. Wade will be performing two times during the week—Friday, October 24, at the Carrollton High School Football Game and Monday, October 27, on campus. (Look for the Nissan Leaf around the Campus Center and a guy covering it in dirt.) He joins us through a collaboration with the Ingram Library and Phi Kappa Phi.

Also, documentary filmmaker Zach Godschall will be on campus on Tuesday, October 28, for a screening of his fabulous Water Like Stone, which chronicles the lives of fishermen in southern Louisiana, as climate change alters their landscape and livelihood.

That's right: thousands of bottles will be at the ready by the Campus Center for a battle to create the most impressive sculpture. Come watch teams compete to make elaborate sculptures out of recycled plastic bottles.

Scholarship Gala

Sustaining and enhancing our desired position as the institution of choice in West Georgia and the region requires the university to remain competitive in recruiting future generations of student scholars. The brightest young minds, destined to become the next generation of doctors, lawyers, statesmen, scientists and teachers, are sought by universities around the world. Additional enhancements to our existing financial aid program will enable the university to continue to attract and support highly qualified students from its traditional and nontraditional audiences – many of whom are first generation attendees from families of modest means, as well as talented students who may otherwise lack the financial ability to pursue a college education. With the rising costs of college tuition and fees, many students work 20, and even 40 hours per week to afford college expenses. It is evident from the student profile that private funding for need-based scholarships is a priority at UWG. Need-based scholarships will assist in eliminating financial barriers to a college education and help ensure that great student potential is not lost as a result of not being able to afford to attend college.

Swing Time: Big Band Music from WWII Era
The Ingram Library's Penelope Melson Society presents "Swing Time"  An Extravaganza of Big Band Music from the World War II Era on Friday, October 17, at 7:00 p.m. in UWG's Campus Center Ballroom.  The public is invited to this event featuring live music and dance performances by UWG's Jazz Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Dan Bakos, and UWG dancers under the direction of Dr. Karen Clevenger.  Dr. Fred Richards will be the emcee for the event. 

Period dress is welcome (but not required).  Admission is free.  Special public parking is being provided.  This event is in conjunction with the exhibit "Over Here and Over There: Georgia and Georgians in World War II" on display at Ingram Library October 13 through December 7.

"Swing Time" recalls an era when the world was at war and big band music was played everywhere and broadcast to millions overseas and on the home front via radio.  Expressing a defiant hope for liberation and freedom, big band music had a unifying, patriotic effect, raising the morale of soldiers and inspiring Americans at home to fully support the war effort.
