This marks the end of UP at UGA’s second year in service of UGA’s student-mothers and it has been a truly incredible year.
We have had three new baby girls born this year, and expect three more little ones to arrive this summer. We have had 10 more mamas (superwomen) join us this year. We have formed partnerships both on and off campus. We have celebrated cupcake-smothered birthdays and hosted joy-filled baby showers. We have witnessed 2 of our moms complete their degrees and graduate. It has been a year full of precious moments and hard-earned victories for our moms and for our team.
We are so grateful for the many moments that have made up our year, and look forward to continued growth and support for the superwomen of the UGA campus.

UP’s first pregnant member will be expecting her baby in a few months and Lauren Noxsel, UP’s president, couldn’t be more eager.

Most college students believe they will be forever young, without responsibility, in a world where graduation is in the hazy, distant future and weekend plans are in the here and now. Lauren Noxsel, a senior pre-nursing and psychology student at the University of Georgia, would beg to differ.

When a college student faces unplanned pregnancy, it can be difficult to find both financial and emotional support. A new club at the University of Georgia, Up at UGA, seeks to offer both without the controversy of religion or politics.
