What Does The Wolf Outside The Chick-fil-A in Carrollton Mean?
Community members, faculty, staff, and UWG Administration gathered for the Ribbon Cutting for the Chick-fil-A Wolf and the Carroll County Performing Arts Wolf on April 15, 2024.

🎨 The Gist: A wolf and a cow walk into a fast-food restaurant…

If you’ve been to the Chick-fil-A in Carrollton recently, you might have noticed a statue of a wolf outside the building. A University of West Georgia student-led project resulted in the unique wolf statue at the local Chick-fil-A, embodying the spirit of partnership between the university and the business community.

For those who aren’t familiar, the mascot for the University of West Georgia is the wolves.

📚 The Details: Reese Scott, a marketing major at UWG, along with her classmates, took part in a creative endeavor as part of their Art as Business class led by Brandy Barker. Their assignment culminated in the creation of a cow-print wolf statue, merging the identities of UWG, whose mascot is the wolf, and Chick-fil-A, famous for its cow-themed marketing. This project facilitated direct interactions with community business leaders and was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included figures such as UWG President Dr. Brendan Kelly and Chick-fil-A owner/operator David Daniels.

🌐 The Big Picture: Partnerships between universities and local businesses are crucial for giving students practical experience and enhancing community relations. These collaborations allow students to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world scenarios, thus bridging the gap between academia and the commercial sector.
