The University of Georgia is winning where it counts
Dick Yarbrough
I bow to no one in my love for and loyalty to the University of Georgia. I bleed red and black. I have served as president of the National Alumni Association, have been named the university’s outstanding graduate and today endow a professorship as well as fellowships at my beloved Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications. I can never repay my university for what it has done for me. Luckily, I finished when I did because these days gaining admission to the University of Georgia is no easy thing. Entering freshmen come with an average SAT of 1365 and a grade point average of 4.04. UGA has produced 24 Rhodes Scholars over the past two decades, making it one of nation’s top three producers of Rhodes Scholars among public institutions.
