The Bulldog 100 honorees will be celebrated Jan. 30 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. The evening will begin with a reception, followed by dinner and the awards ceremony. Registration, which is open to the public, will be available by mid-December at

The awards ceremony will feature a keynote address by Jeff Dunn, CEO and president of C-Fresh, a division of Campbell Soup Company that includes Bolthouse Farms, Campbell’s retail fresh soup unit, and Garden Fresh Gourmet. Dunn earned a bachelor’s degree in 1980 from UGA’s Terry College of Business.

Following Dunn’s remarks, members of the Student Alumni Council will lead the highlight of the evening-the release of the final rankings and countdown of the 2016 Bulldog 100.

“The Bulldog 100 Celebration is one of the most important events on UGA’s calendar, and it is an inspiring way to kick off the New Year,” said Meredith Gurley Johnson, UGA’s executive director of alumni relations. “The excitement is palpable during this event and I always leave invigorated by the caliber of those in attendance. They are living examples of the quality of a UGA education.”
