During Columbus Day break our Cool Scholars toured their sixth University this year as they made the hour and a half trek to Athens. Our tour of the University of Georgia was indeed special as we were led by UGA alumni and Cool Girls volunteer of the year, Lisa Tolliver.
We completed a walking tour of campus where we learned about the 23 Rhodes Scholars the school has produced as well as the hysterical history of how Ugga the school mascot came to be. The highlight of the day for the girls was seeing Cool Girls Scholarship recipient Linda Lowe fully engulfed in student life as she was chatting with friends in the student center. Linda joined the girls at lunch and discussed her fears, triumphs and learning experiences as a UGA freshman.
