continue to check your UGA e-mail account while you are away.  The

participating in the lottery for home football tickets for the 2005
season.  OIE offers the only way for students who are abroad in the
spring to obtain football tickets.  (Leaving your ID with a friend to
have it scanned will not work!)  Info about football tickets usually
