In the Fall 2004, three African Americans students founded Georgia Daze at the University of Georgia. Georgia Daze is a overnight campus visitation program for high school seniors that have been admitted to UGA. This program aims to encourage talented, historically underrepresented students to enroll at the University of Georgia. During this weekend prospective students are exposed to classes, faculty, campus leaders, University Housing, dining halls and student organizations.
2017 Georgia Daze weekend programs will be held February 24 - 25 and April 21 - 22. The cost of the program is $40.00. During this weekend, parents are invited and encouraged to attend a half-day orientation provided by the Office of Institutional Diversity on the Friday of that weekend.
Academic year 2015-16, 88 admitted students participated over the two weekends. As a result, 85% of the Georgia Daze participants enrolled at the University of Georgia.
