University Judiciary Events

Gavel on Table

In addition to educational programs, University Judiciary also hosts several large scale events that serve to educate our members, connect our organization to the University campus and Athens community, and recognize deserving members and alumni who serve the organization.

 

Jenny Penney Oliver University Judiciary
Recognition and Induction Ceremony

The 2017 Jenny Penney Oliver University Judiciary Recognition and Induction Ceremony took place on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at the UGA Special Collections Libraries. We inducted 22 new members into the organization and were able to recognize outstanding members for their contributions to the organization and to UGA! We also had the opportunity to honor our seniors, who are going on to a wide variety of careers and graduate schools, located all over the US and abroad.

The 2016 Jenny Penney Oliver University Judiciary Recognition and Induction Ceremony took place on Saturday, April 9, 2016 at the UGA Special Collections Libraries. We inducted 24 new members into the organization as Justices and Advisor/Advocates. We also honored 17 graduating members who will be going on to a wide variety of careers and graduate schools. Awards were given to recognize members for their contributions and commitment to excellence.  The alumni speaker was Roy Barnes, former Governor of Georgia.  Governor Barnes spoke about the importance of justice and shared his experiences from his political and legal careers.

 

University Judiciary Public Affairs Events

Be Healthy, Be Safe, Be Legal

This event took place before fall break and encouraged University of Georgia students to make healthy and responsible choices while traveling or staying in Athens. University Judiciary members and the Public Affairs Team partnered with the Health Promotion Department, Fontaine Center, and the Multi-Cultural Greek Council to educate students on a variety of choices. 

Showcase of Diversity

UJ, the Fontaine Center, and Delta Tau Delta collaborated to hold the second annual DUI Awareness. The event was aimed towards educating students on the dangers of driving under the influence of Alcohol and/or other Drugs. This year’s event took the form of a Pizza – Trivia night where teams answered questions about DUI in order to win prizes.      

101 Things to Do in Athens without the use of drugs or alcohol

UJ partnered with the Residence Hall Association and Improv Athens to provide an interactive performance to students about various activities, events, and programs on campus and within Athens that students can participate in that do not require the use of alcohol and other drugs.

 

Annual Retreat

This year, we successfully hosted the third annual overnight University Judiciary Retreat at Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, Georgia. This retreat allowed our current and provisional members an opportunity to interact with each other.  It also provided an opportunity to build trust and develop community within the organization. Brett Grayson, an alumnus and former Judge Advocate, was a guest speaker and spoke about discipline and things to consider for those interested in attending law school. Additional speakers included two UGA Rec Sports staff members, Kellie Gerbers and Josh Fulmer.  They led various team-building activities, which taught members the importance of respect and communication. Also, all members participated in developing organizational goals for the upcoming year.  We believe this experience breaks down personal barriers allowing all members to respect each other and their opinions for the upcoming year.
 

Community Service

University Judiciary continued its ongoing partnership with Keep Athens Beautiful and held biannual community service event at Cedar Shoals High School. Members of the organization helped renovate to the existing community garden for a grant project. The work consisted of soil rotation and preparation for this year’s crop. Furthermore, new nutrient-rich topsoil was added in order to boost crop yield. Members were able to bond with each other while improving the garden for the school.
