B.o.B. and T.I. brought their best to The Coliseum

The much anticipated B.o.B./T.I. Concert at The Coliseum proved to be a huge success.  Over 3,000 people walked into The Coliseum to listen to the two renowned hip hop artists!

Guests began lining up outside the front doors around 5:30 pm in order to get the best seat possible.  By 7:00 pm. when the doors opened, the line had extended down the sidewalk well up Stadium Drive.  As people began pouring into The Coliseum there was a clear excitement in the air!

First on stage was local artists Kalechi, who got the crowd going in preparation for B.o.B. and T.I.

Next, B.o.B. took the stage in the Arena at The Coliseum.  B.o.B. knew how to work the crowd, running into the stands and even crowd surfing!

And last but not least, T.I. took the stage to round out the night.

Overall, the concert, presented by The Center for Student Involvement at UWG was a huge success!  Thanks to all who attended and made it such a great event!

Valdosta Game

Valdosta vs UWG….. Always a great game!
If you have not come to watch The UWG Women and Men play at The Coliseum… you are not going to want to miss this game!  Every year, The Valdosta State Blazers, UWG’s Gulf South Conference rival, comes to The Coliseum and fans can expect nothing less than a great game and this Saturday should be no exception! 

The Valdosta Women come in to town on a 2 game losing streak, and The Wolves are looking to break a streak of their own!  After a tough 4 game road trip, a return to The Coliseum may be just what the team needs!

At 4:00 PM, the Men take the court against a Valdosta team that has struggled in the conference.  The high scoring Wolves hope to bounce back from a tough loss at Shorter and keep their great season going!!!

UWG and The Coliseum have set Gulf South Conference attendance records the past two times these teams met in Carrollton!  Be sure to stop in and help break the record once again!
