Feeling overwhelmed or stressed by the news, while also trying to continue working at home with family, care for loved ones, and stay healthy? These amazing graduate students in clinical psychology can sympathize.

They authored a COVID-19 Well-Being Guide, which includes a description of symptoms, evidence-based ways to improve mental health and sense of well-being, how to talk to children during the COVID-19 pandemic, and resources for the UGA community and beyond. Great work, Dawgs!

Kudos to our continuing education team for making these courses on job skills and personal development available for FREE to the public โ€” tell your friends!

We are excited to offer these 10 free job skills and personal improvement courses to the public!

And hey, we're not just employees โ€” we're also clients! Here's what one of our staff in facilities management had to say about the personal finance course:

"This course not only applies to someone who may be young and naive about financial growth & success, but also can expand the knowledge of someone who is well-established and already responsible with their personal finances. I was pleasantly surprised at the broad topics and the depth in which each concept was presented."

Did you know? Dawgs designed the CDCโ€™s COVID-19 graphic. In addition to being alumni of the Lamar Dodd School of Art, Dan Higgins (BFA โ€™93) and Alissa Eckert (BFA โ€™04) are medical illustrators with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

Helping people visualize the virus isnโ€™t so much about accurately representing what it would look like under a microscope, but more about conveying why it is dangerous. The virus canโ€™t reproduce on its own โ€” it hijacks healthy host cells, and it is these pirated cells that reproduce the virus. The image is intended to visually explain how that occurs.

Let's clear the air! With 33 new electric buses set to be in circulation by 2021, UGA is making the transportation industry a little greener.

Each electric bus not only cuts operational costs from $100 to $5 a day per bus, but also reduces net greenhouse gas emissions by 70% compared to the diesel buses they replace. And with the elimination of tailpipe emissions, surrounding bikers, pedestrians and other travelers also enjoy a cleaner commute.

An estimated 3,000-5,000 students and Athens community members turned out for the first Earth Day at UGA, which featured a day-long teach-in led by students and faculty from the Institute of Ecology and student group Balance. โ€œIn this time of environmental crisis both impending and existent, we feel it is necessary that the public be informed in the basic principles of ecology and be made aware of the problems facing the human species in relation to its environment,โ€ the organizers wrote. https://t.uga.edu/5SB
