The Arch

At nearly 160 years old, the cast iron Arch bordering North Campus and Downtown Athens, represents both the past and the future of the University of Georgia.

The Arch is modeled after the Georgia state seal featuring the three pillars of wisdom, justice and moderation. To that end, the Arch is a reminder of the university’s ties to Georgia as the birthplace of public higher education in America and its commitment as a land-grant and sea-grant university to serve the people of Georgia.
