At UWG, we have dedicated ourselves to the pursuit of scholarly achievement, creative expression and service to humanity. We encourage students to think critically, develop creative solutions to challenges, explore new ways of doing things and leave the world a better place than they found it. We hope to inspire the community and those in it to do the same.
Howl for UWG, an exciting new project spearheaded by faculty member Clint Samples and the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, offers a unique opportunity for artists, business owners and community members to engage with UWG in a way that supports all three of these core values. Through the creative expression of our artists and the desire of donors to serve humanity, we will be able to provide scholarships to help students achieve.
What is Howl for UWG?
With creative designs from regional artists and donations from sponsors, life-size fiberglass-howling wolves will roam the UWG campus and community the fall semester of 2012. Inspired by the popular Cows on Parade public art project, HOWL FOR UWG celebrates the bond between the community and the University of West Georgia. Proceeds from HOWL FOR UWG will benefit scholarship aid for the UWG Annual Fund Campaign. A portion of the proceeds will be dedicated to providing scholarships for art majors. HOWL FOR UWG serves to bridge art, academics and athletics using UWG’s wolf mascot and wolf pack as a metaphor for community.
