Founded in 1912 as the “School of Commerce,” the Terry College of Business is the oldest business school in the state of Georgia and one of 18 schools and colleges at the first public-chartered university in the country. In order to recognize and honor our most loyal donors, Terry College established the 1912 Society – a roster of supporters who have sustained annual gifts of at least three consecutive years. 1912 Society members also enjoy the privilege of being recognized as a member of UGA’s Third Pillar Society.
As Terry College celebrates more than 100 years as a business school, the Second Century Club recognizes emerging philanthropists who earned their bachelors degree fewer than 12 years ago.

We proudly recognize and thank the many alumni, corporations, foundations, and friends who contribute their support to the college and its strategic initiatives.

Every effort has been made to assure its completeness and accuracy.
