Jakai Yancey

Hello, future Wolves!  As a current student now looking back, I didn’t know what kind of experience adjusting to college would be. I left a “comfortable” atmosphere and found an experience like none other. Stepping onto UWG’s campus for the first time on a daily tour was an out-of-this-world experience. I instantly felt welcomed by the university’s students, faculty, and staff. “Welcome to West Georgia! Thank you for being here,” was the first welcome I heard as an incoming Wolf. As a current student, an orientation leader, a tour guide, and a mentor, “Welcome to West Georgia! Thank you for being here,” are the exact words I say today when I meet a future Wolf.

Go West! Go Wolves!
