Resuming Normal Operations for Fall 2021


The University is currently planning to transition to in-person instruction and full dining capacity for the Fall semester. We will continue to follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH), and University System of Georgia (USG) guidelines and safely adjust operations when appropriate.

If you need to take food to-go, you can register for our Bulldawg Box To-Go program at the One Stop Shop. Once registered, you may pick up a container at a cashiers' station. Used containers will be exchanged for one new box at your next visit. Learn more here.

  • Sanitation practices include:
    • We maintain an increased frequency of cleaning and sanitation of all areas, especially utensils, door handles, tables, and other surfaces

The University System has now updated its guidance on face coverings and social distancing in accordance with the advice provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on May 13, 2021. Effective immediately, fully vaccinated individuals can resume campus classes and other activities without physically distancing or wearing a mask. Unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to continue socially distancing from others when possible and wearing a face covering while inside campus facilities.
