If you plan to study abroad during the Spring 2005 semester, please continue to check your UGA e-mail account while you are away.  The Office of International Education (OIE) will send you information about 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 goes out in March as the lottery takes place in early to mid April.  If you do not receive a message by the end of March, please feel free to contact OIE.
