SUN JOO AHN

Sun Joo (Grace) Ahn, founding director of the Games and Virtual Environments Lab in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, is exploring how digital technology can be used to encourage better food choices, more physical activity and better STEM learning in children. 

"My primary area of research lies in communication and more specifically the influence of virtual environments on people’s cognitive, affective and behavioral responses. I’m fascinated by how virtual experiences are able to meaningfully change the way that we interact in the physical world. The context of my studies largely falls into three categories: health, environmental and consumer behavior. I have also been working closely with the community by conducting field studies in a number of 4-H camps in Georgia to explore how virtual experiences can promote healthy choices in children. Despite the incredible speed of technological advancement and the explosion of popular interest in virtual environments such as virtual reality (e.g., Oculus Rift), augmented reality (e.g., Microsoft HoloLens), and video games, there is so much uncovered ground in these areas and so many unanswered questions. In short, I get to play with the most cutting-edge virtual devices and call it research — how could that be uninteresting?"

MORGANN LYLES

Morgann Lyles, a senior majoring in African American Studies, isn’t afraid of adventures—or changing her major—to suit her life’s goals. 

"I changed the course of my life by leaving my microbiology and pre-med intentions behind, but I believe that my current major more closely approximates the person I was created to be.  The one UGA experience I will always remember is getting to hear Congressman John Lewis speak for the first time at the annual Freedom Breakfast event my freshman year.  I spoke with him more informally during my summer Washington, D.C. internship.  He is one of my heroes because of his genuine desire to ensure that every human being living in the U.S. has access to the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness promised by the Declaration of Independence.  He fought for human rights alongside Dr. King, and he continues to do so today."

“Being a student in the agricultural leadership, education and communication department makes it extremely difficult to have only one favorite professor, because they are all so amazing in their own ways. I have had the opportunity to be their student, as well as their office assistant, and they are all totally wonderful people who are very passionate about what they teach. If I had to pick the professor I am the most thankful for getting to know it would be my magnificent advisor, Frank B. Flanders. He is an assistant professor in the ALEC department with an emphasis in agricultural education. He is overly qualified for his roles and executes them superiorly. Dr. Flanders has an array of degrees and accomplishments, and he has served in agricultural education for over 35 years. He is a remarkable advisor, friend and role model. Thank you Dr. Flanders for all you have done and continue to do to guide me toward success here at UGA.”

Smitha Ganeshan, a senior Honors student in anthropology and future doctor, is taking her education beyond the boundaries of campus.

''UGA has afforded me the opportunity to travel extensively during my undergraduate career.  I spent a summer learning about international conflict at Oxford University in England and working with the World Health Organization’s Hospital and Research Center for Diabetes in India.  In small community health clinics on the mountainside of Lima, Peru, and in the coffee farms of Managua, Nicaragua, I learned about the art of diagnosis and felt deeply the degree to which poverty inscribes itself in an individual’s health.  This past summer, through the Honors in New York program, I worked with the Greater New York Hospital Association under Susan Waltman.  I do not think I will ever have a boss who was (and still is) as invested in my personal and academic development as she was.''

Graphic designers utilize communication tools such as computer images, symbols, logos, and typography to convey a message from a client to a particular audience.

Students pursuing the B.F.A. in Graphic Design at UGA should have a genuine interest in solving problems through visual communications that combine art and technology.  They must have an inherent sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness to solve graphics problems conceptually (both verbally and nonverbally) and are required to have an Apple Mac laptop for coursework; a digital camera is also recommended.  Courses include study of electronic design, layout, typography, photography, color techniques, three-dimensional design, graphic survey, illustration, and others. 

The Graphic Design profession prefers graphic specialists rather than generalists.  Students are therefore urged to concentrate in one particular direction such as illustration, typography, or packaging.  This is accomplished by the student's choice of graphic design elective courses and projects in the senior year.

Graduates accept professional positions in advertising agencies, printing and publishing, newspapers, design studios, television, manufacturing, and other graphics-related fields.  Clubs, charities, religious, and educational organizations are often in need of graphic design work as well.

MARK EITEMAN

College of Engineering professor Mark Eiteman wants students to understand and apply approaches to solving technical problems rather than just memorizing information, since many problems they will encounter don’t have easy answers.

“Research and instruction are inseparable parts of the process of higher education. As I conduct research and develop technologies, I keep up with and contribute to the new developments in my field. I can then convey these ideas to students, sharing my experiences and how I have tackled different problems. At the same time, communicating this technical information gives me a deeper appreciation for where the field came from and what its current limitations are. Understanding these limitations inspires new research directions.”

PAULA LEMONS

Paula Lemons, associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, uses findings from her research on science education to design curricula for her classes and tailor her interactions with students to enhance their learning outcomes.

“I am a biology education researcher, which means I use social scientific methods to investigate the teaching and learning of biology. There are two things that most interest me about my field of research. First, my research focuses on learning among undergraduates, and I often read literature about the developmental aspects of learning from little children to older adults. Second, I most often use qualitative methods in my research, and these methods are meant to provide researchers with deep, contextualized perspectives of the people or phenomena under investigation. I love the hunt to understand the subtleties and details that influence college education.”

Cali Callaway has covered just about as much ground as a student possibly can: three years as a lab researcher in regenerative medicine, developer of a guide for sexual assault resources, volunteer in the community, participant in a number of honor societies, and, for good measure, a world traveler. The Goldwater Scholar is on a clear path to becoming a physician.

“I joined Dr. Steve Stice in the Regenerative Bioscience Center as a freshman. In my time working in his laboratory, I dedicated a year to the development of a neural tube injury model in chickens incorporating mouse pluripotent stem cells. Although we produced some positive results, the project eventually reached a standstill. Seeking better outcomes, I ventured to Dr. Roger Kamm’s lab at MIT. This opportunity exposed me to a microfluidics platform for the study of neuromuscular junction formation, the basis of our chicken investigation. Thanks to the skills gained during this summer research experience, we spent the past year collaborating between the Kamm and Stice labs.”

Akinloye Ojo, associate professor of comparative literature and director of the African Studies Institute, wants his students to understand that no language, be it spoken in Europe or Africa, is inherently difficult.

"I love teaching the first-year Yoruba language and culture classes (YORB 1010 and 1020) because of the transformation that occurs in students’ language proficiency and cultural awareness. I particularly enjoy watching my students go from worried novice speakers to poised intermediate level speakers of the Yoruba language after just two semesters. In some exceptional cases, you end up with someone with near-native ability. We have had students who went to Nigeria in the summer after their first year in the program and were evaluated as being early advanced speakers by Yoruba language professors in Nigeria."

KAYLA ALWARD

Kayla Alward’s loving care for the calves at the UGA Dairy led to her selection as UGA and Southeast Student Employee of the Year. But her activity doesn’t stop there. She’s president of the Dairy Science Club, an ambassador for CAES and the recipient of several scholarships. And yes, her dream would be to own a dairy farm.

“I interned with Alta Genetics, which is a dairy, reproductive consulting company. The application and interview process was intense, with seven of us being selected for positions out of 150 students that applied. I worked and traveled around Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin where I learned reproductive techniques such as breeding and ultrasounding cows. I also had the opportunity to attend both sales and genetics training to further my knowledge of the art of sales as well as picking bulls, matework and consulting to farm managers to assist them in reaching their goals. During the summer, Alta held its annual showcase event in which the company invites dairy farmers from across the world to a certain location in the U.S. to tour elite and advanced dairy farms and share ideas. I was able to attend and assist with setting up the farm tours and met farmers from 31 countries. It was truly an amazing opportunity and lent me skills that will help me pursue a future with dairy cows!”

The B.F.A. major in Dance prepares students to pursue careers as performers and choreographers for the concert and theater stage and for film, video and other media; dance educators in schools K-12; teachers in and owners of private studios; arts administrators and advocates; and dance therapists.  The program instills in its graduates a resourcefulness which assists them in creating for themselves a means of livelihood in the economically challenging field of dance. 

The curriculum is grounded in studio courses in dance technique, with a 32 semester hour requirement in ballet and contemporary dance and additional requirements in jazz, tap, improvisation, and alternate forms.  At the completion of technique courses, B.F.A. candidates must attain levels of performance higher than the levels required of candidates of the A.B. in Dance.  Complementing the B.F.A. program's technique component are the requirement of four semesters of membership in one of the department's pre-professional performance companies and a range of courses that employ dance as a vehicle for study of the human body, the creative process, musical form, the history of world cultures, psychology, educational theory and practice, and technical design for the stage and other multi-media formats. 

Dancers develop technical proficiency and choreographic ability; gain experience in performance, production, and teaching; explore the scientific, philosophical, and historical foundations of dance; consider the relationship of dance to other art forms; experience the power of dance as an educational tool; and encounter dance as a total theatre experience.

Incoming first-year and transfer students are required to audition for admission to the Dance major program.  Interested dancers may contact the Department of Dance at (706) 542-4415 or via the website below for information on annual auditions.
