Letter from the CEDAA President
To the UGA College of Environment + Design Community:
The 2013-2014 Academic year is off to a great start. Those of us in the CED Alumni community look forward every year to the influx of new and returning students to the College. It is a nostalgic time for us, as well as a time of great energy for all those in related CED professions as they grow through the efforts of students and faculty at the CED. The College has grown its International study programs every year, it is consistently ranked as one of the best Design Colleges and is constantly adapting to remain on the cutting edge of Historic Preservation, Environmental Planning and Landscape Architecture.
This is a year of celebration. We mark the 75th Anniversary of the Founder’s Garden, and a kick-off to fund an expansion of the Jackson Street Building to house the whole of the CED. The Environmental Ethics Program is celebrating 30 years at UGA. The Annual Alumni meeting will be held the last weekend of March 2014. We will bid a fond farewell to Professor Bill Ramsey, and raise our glasses to all the students, faculty and Alumni who have achieved great things this year.
Just as plants struggle during the heat of summer in wont of a cooling rain, those of us in creative professions need rejuvenation through fresh ideas and study. Whether it’s networking at the CED tailgates and Dan Franklin Social, or soaking in the knowledge of one of the College’s inspiring lecturers, I always return home to Birmingham feeling renewed. I hope you will join me and many others, with a trip to Athens this year.
Jennafer S. Collins
2013-2014 CEDAA President
