Inaugural issue of Profiles released

 

The Bulldog Nation is growing younger!  Alumni under 40 years of age now represent over half of the total UGA alumni population.  A new publication to reach this audience identifies recent UGA alumni engaged in interesting careers and endeavors.  Profiles, a quarterly email magazine for recent UGA graduates, will feature young alumni, introduce opportunities for donor support, report on recent news and offer a calendar of Alumni Association events and programs.  In addition, each issue will showcase photo submissions from UGA recent graduates showing UGA’s spirit and tradition around the world.

 

Regardless of age, all UGA alumni and friends are welcome to learn more about recent graduates and opportunities by reading the online magazine here.

 

Profilespublished its first edition to more than 79,000 alumni.  The publication will be a regular communication to highlight alumni giving opportunities and increase awareness for UGA’s growing alumni constituency.

 

The fall edition features small business owners T.J. Callaway (BBA ’07) and Rachel Esposito (BBA ’01).  Callaway, the founder and CEO of Onward Reserve and Five Mile Club, was recently recognized as a member of the Class of 2012 UGA Alumni Association’s 40 Under 40, which celebrates young alumni making an impact in business, leadership or philanthropy. Esposito, the owner of Bel Fiore Bridal in Marietta, has been honored at the 2011 and 2012 Bulldog 100, which recognizes the 100 fastest growing businesses owned by UGA alumni.  The UGA Alumni Association announced the 2013 Bulldog 100 class at the end of November, and Bel Fiore Bridal will once again be honored at the upcoming Bulldog 100 event on January, 26, 2013 in Atlanta. 

  

The purpose of Profiles is to generate support for UGA and its programs while also featuring alumni information.  The e-magazine will introduce donor stories inspiring support of UGA programs and activities and offer opportunities to submit stories and ideas for future issues.  The next edition of Profiles will be distributed January 2013.
