First graders living the college life

A boy named Charlie looked up with a smile as he walked in a long line of first-graders near the front steps of the Miller Learning Center on the University of Georgia campus on Tuesday.

"Hey, look it's America," he said, reaching both hands toward a U.S. flag waving in the wind. "This is America."

Charlie and more than 80 of his classmates from Athens' J.J. Harris Elementary School field-tripped to UGA to get a taste of the college life, and to learn about Latin American countries and cultures.
