Pick up your free tickets for Augusta University Day at the Georgia-Carolina State Fair

Thanks to the generosity of the Augusta Exchange Club, Augusta University gets a day at the fair … for free.

Not only is Sunday, Oct. 16, officially Augusta University Day at the Georgia-Carolina State Fair, everyone who is part of the Augusta University family – faculty, staff and students – gets the opportunity to get in for free.

The Augusta Exchange Club, the philanthropic group that’s put on the fair since 1923, is donating 2,000 family passes to the university.

The offer doesn’t include food or rides, but it gets you and your family in the gates and right into the fun.

“We felt like Sunday was a great time for Augusta University folks to come on in and enjoy the fair with us,” said Ken Hardy of the Augusta Exchange Club. “We’ve got a lot of tie-in with the school that goes back generations, and we’d love to see everyone wearing their school colors on Augusta University Day.”

Tickets are available for pickup at the Jaguar Student Activities Center (JSAC) on the Summerville Campus, the Student Center on the Health Sciences Campus and several other locations detailed below.

This is a great chance to have fun while showing the community just how large Jaguar Nation really is, so while you’re picking up your free tickets, stop by either JagStore to stock up on your JagGear.

And while you’re at the fair, share your memories on social media with #JagsAtTheFair.

Pick up your tickets at the following locations:

Student Center Wellness Desk
HR: both front desk locations (Annex and Pope Avenue)
Medical Center: West Entrance, South Entrance and Harper Street
CHOG: Front Desk
Residence Hall Front Desk
