The University of Georgia will observe its anniversary as the birthplace of public higher education in America next week, and the UGA Alumni Association will celebrate the occasion by hosting a weeklong series of events, including the 16th annual Founders Day Lecture on January 22 at 1;30 in the Chapel.

Marshall Shepherd, Georgia Athletic Association Distinguished Professor of Geography and Atmospheric Sciences, will present the lecture, “Partly Sunny or Partly Cloudy? The Challenges of Communicating Science to Non-Scientists.”

The Athens Clarke County Historic Preservation Commission is set to vote Wednesday on whether changes can be made to the outside of the building at 101 College Avenue. The site, located at the corner of College Avenue and Broad Street, will house a new Chick Fil A restaurant.

No governmental approval is required to open the Chick Fil A, but the Historic Preservation Commission does have to approve external changes to the building, because it is located in the downtown historic district.
