Grizzly Days 2019: March Through the Arch

Thu. Aug 15, 2019 12:00pm - 4:00pm
Library Lawn

A special welcome event for all new students.

During this traditional event, all new first-year and transfer students will walk through the Arch of Knowledge, symbolizing their entrance into the community of learners at Georgia Gwinnett College.

As new students pass through the Arch of Knowledge, they will pass between two lines of GGCs faculty, who will welcome them to the college. The lines represent the close bonds that are formed between GGC's students and faculty. Returning GGC students and alumni will also be part of welcoming new Grizzlies.

Also, at the 9th annual, "March through the Arch," GGC's entering class of 2019:

  • will be welcomed by Dr. Jann L. Joseph, President
  • will be GGC's guests of honor at the reception afterwards with the faculty

All guests are invited to enjoy carnival-style games from 12-2 p.m. on the lawn, and activities immediately after the march. The first 500 student attendees will receive a GGC swag bag, and all first-year students will be entered to win a VIP parking space. 

Parents and guests also are welcome to attend March Through the Arch.

Claw Card required to participate.
