The Tradition of the Arch
The Arch was built in the 1850s as a part of an original fence that surrounded campus. Now, it is just a marker that signifies the entrance to UGA. Its three pillars - standing for wisdom, justice, and moderation - are now only walked through once you graduate. Legend has it that if someone walks under the arch before they graduate, they will never graduate from UGA.
