UPDATE! We were so impressed with the immediate adoption of our hashtag!  It’s so wonderful to be in a community where we come together to start a new trend so quickly.  We want our hashtag to stand out as much as possible so we have made a quick change.  From this point forward, we will use #saUGA411

411 signifies a source of information, but for many of us in the program, it also serves as the classroom where we attend most of our classes — and the home of many memories.  Again, thank you for helping us get the conversation started.  We have edited our original post below to show our new hashtag! (Thanks to Alex Miller whose hashtag submission included the “411” idea)

Congratulations to Jaclyn Kuwik, the winner of our hashtag contest!

Introducing our new hashtag:  #saUGA411

This hashtag will serve as the official tag for our three graduate programs, College Student Affairs Administration Masters and Doctoral Programs, and the Ed.D. program in Student Affairs Leadership.  We had several strong contenders but this entry especially caught our eye.

Part of what makes our programs so special is the strong connection and dedication to the field of Student Affairs within Higher Education.  The “sa” serves as a great reminder of our focus on graduating scholar practitioners who place the students at the center of all they do, everywhere they work, at UGA and at fine institutions in Georgia, across the US and beyond.  The UGA represents our proud association with the institution we call home.  During their time in these programs, our students serve in a variety of capacities within student affairs including practica, internships, graduate assistantships, and full time jobs..  In addition, our graduate students are part of the UGA student community themselves.   These ideas showcase why #saUGA411 is our choice for the contest winner.  Thank you Jaclyn, and thank you to all of you who submitted your awesome ideas!

How can you use #saUGA411?

Many of our faculty members, current students, and alumni have an active presence on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.  #saUGA411 brings together ideas presented on these networks, and helps connect conversations.  For prospective students, we hope #saUGA411 gives a clearer picture of the constant communication and scholarly discussion happening within our graduate programs.  So follow our #saUGA411 stream or connect with us by posting #saUGA411.  We are always talking!

  1. My favorite part is that the hashtag is a combination of multiple perspectives, not one “best” practice…a true representation of where our field should be headed!!!!
