Through the Arch captures UGA’s colorful past, dynamic present, and promising future in a novel way: by surveying its buildings, structures, and spaces. These physical features are the university’s most visible―and some of its most valuable―resources. Yet they are largely overlooked, or treated only passingly, in histories and standard publications about UGA.

Through text and photographs, this book places buildings and spaces in the context of UGA’s development over more than 225 years. After opening with a brief historical overview of the university, the book profiles over 140 buildings, landmarks, and spaces, their history, appearance, and past and current usage, as well as their namesake, beginning with the oldest structures on North Campus and progressing to the newest facilities on South and East Campus and the emerging Northwest Quadrant. Many profiles are supplemented with sidebars relating traditions, lore, facts, or alumni recollections associated with buildings and spaces.

More than just landmarks or static elements of infrastructure, buildings and spaces embody the university’s values, cultural heritage, and educational purpose. These facilities―many more than a century old―are where students learn, explore, and grow and where faculty teach, research, and create. They harbor the university’s history and traditions, protect its treasures, and hold memories for alumni. The repository for books, documents, artifacts, and tools that contain and convey much of the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of human existence, these structures are the legacy of generations. And they are tangible symbols of UGA’s commitment to improve our world through education.

Guide includes

113 color photos throughout 19 black-and-white historical photos Over 140 profiles of buildings, landmarks, and spaces Supplemental sidebars with traditions, lore, facts, and alumni anecdotes 6 maps

About the Author:

LARRY B. DENDY worked for thirty-seven years in the UGA Office of Public Affairs as a writer, editor, News Service director, associate director, speechwriter, and special projects manager. He has served as the city editor at the Tifton Gazette, as a reporter at the Winston- Salem Journal, and from 1965 to 1967, as a Peace Corps volunteer in India. He received his bachelor of arts in journalism from UGA in 1965.

Review:

This stunning campus guide documents how our university has balanced its commitment to preservation and its need for expansion. To discover this beautiful place where the old and the new, the historic and the unprecedented, stand side by side, begin here in these pages.

(Dr. M. Louise McBee Vice President Emeritus for Academic Affairs)

[Through the Arch is] full of photographs and will also take readers into unexpected places. . . . Through the Arch is a comprehensive description of the campus today.

(Lee Shearer Athens Banner-Herald)

When I want to feel young, I stroll by the Arch and make a lap around North Campus. With a few steps, it’s 1966―again. And now we have Larry Dendy’s Through the Arch. With its wonderful compilation of photos and lore, it’s like stepping into a time machine, extolling past and present, with a glimpse of what we might expect in the future. I’ll be stepping into this UGA masterpiece―time and time again.

(Dink NeSmith ABJ 1970, President, Community Newspapers, Inc., and Chairman, USG Board of Regents)

Larry Dendy shows us that UGA is all things a friend should be and has earned respectful attention. This book allows us to take a stroll through the campus arm-in-arm with its history and sense of place.

(Terry Camp UGA alumnus and co-owner of The Globe)

[A] fine addition to the literature on UGA . . . Larry Dendy is an excellent guide to this increasingly complex story.

(F. N. Boney from the foreword)
