Ode to UGA: A Poem

A semester at Georgia, as told by a first year.

Ode to UGA: A Poem
Taylor Hunt

Ode to UGA, my school, my home, my place,

What a ride it's been, and here's some things I've faced.

I've seen the arch, I've been to games, and lived at Jittery Joe's,

I've looked for Hairy Dawg and gone everywhere he goes.

I've pushed my way through lines for buses, food, and books,

I've worn "late to class outfits", and received a couple looks.

I learned the quickest routes, I found my favorite spot,

I even slept in Tate, or gave it my best shot.

I met loads of people, much different from me,

But in the end it's OK, we're all on one team.

I wore red and black and cheered for my school,

I sweated through my clothes, and screamed like a fool.

I walked miles and miles, or thats how it seems,

And after just one semester I fit back in my jeans.

Finals were brutal, I took my best guess,

Goodbye straight-A record, so sad to confess.

My money has vanished, and I'm as broke as they come,

But at least when I'm done here, I will not be dumb.

So thanks for the memories, I'm so ready for more,

I'm glad I took the chance and opened this door.

Poor, stressed, and tired, but I'm alive and well.

Waiting for graduation to ring that chapel bell.

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”


It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas . Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
