  • morgan west

    Leadership Position: DawgPack Facilitator

    Year in School: 2nd

    Major: Nutritional Sciences

    Favorite thing about attending UGA: UGA was never my first choice because of its "party school" reputation, I am honestly so thankful that I ended up in Athens for that reason. Though there's definitely a "Christian bubble" where we know everyone and find genuine community, there are also SO many lost people in this city and never-ending opportunities to be a light and show Christ's love to people who might not otherwise see it.

    Favorite BCM memory: It's so hard to pick a favorite memory, but the Not-So-Superbowl has to be near the top of my list because I got to know some amazing people outside of my DawgPack and laugh at my lack of football skills for a few hours, all for a great cause.

  • Rebecca winget

    Leadership Position: DawgPack Facilitator

    Year in School: 2nd

    Major: Communication Sciences and Disorders

    Favorite thing about attending UGA: DawgPacks at the B, but the fact that Insomnia Cookies delivers to the dorms is a close second!

    Favorite BCM memory: One time for Dawg Packs, Morgan took us to Lake Herrick. It was dark and we were sitting on the bridge deep into our discussion. Suddenly, a bright light appeared in the distance and it quickly got bigger and bigger. Before we knew it a line of what seemed like 100 bikers were rapidly approaching, and we all screamed and jumped to the side. Needless to say we all almost died that night, and it was the funniest thing that happened at DP all year!
