So far, my experience has been amazing! The environment that the University creates for us students is amazing, even with dealing with COVID precautions. The school provides amazing opportunities for students with clubs, classes, and enrichment activities. The campus is gorgeous and they keep it that way. I love the military style of the college and the friendliness of every staff member I come in contact with. My freshman year is going great!

I have loved every bit of my time at UNG! The Dahlonega campus is beautiful and rewarding in itself! The professors are loving, tending, but tough, and very encouraging. I love the small town life and beauty of the town. This school has been so impactful on my academic growth and growth as an adult. I feel the quality of my education and the love I have for this school is so much more than I ever expected when choosing an undergraduate program. The Biology department is composed of a well organized and knowledgable team of professors that truly care about student's learning.
The university of North Georgia has been an incredible school, in my experience. It's small enough to not be overwhelming, but still big enough to allow for a very diverse group of students. Plus, there are so many resources available, that I never had any excuse to do anything but succeed. Need some extra help with one of your classes? UNG has study labs for all of the core subjects. Having trouble budgeting? There's a money management center on campus that can help you figure out the most efficient way for you to budget for your lifestyle. Need a place to sit and relax, maybe study a bit, but find sitting in the lunchroom or library to be uncomfortable? The multicultural student affairs department has a safe room in the student center that's a great place to take a load off where you can feel completely at ease. And of course, I should note that it's very affordable. It really is a wonderful college, and I'm very proud to be a student there!
