I attended North Georgia from 2013-2014 and from 2016 until now. The professors are my favorite thing about this school, and just after them comes the beautiful campus. It seems like most of the professors who are older have actually worked in their field in other places and have in their age decided to move to quiet Dahlonega to teach. They are so knowledgeable! I also like the military school idea and the traditions that come with that that are held onto. The campus has a drill field in the middle and a tower covered in Dahlonega-sourced gold. My only complaint is the type of people who attend. It seems like there are snobby people, cadets, and estranged people with not much in between.

I just transferred to the University of North Georgia as a Junior, and have absolutely loved my experience. The college campus is upbeat, the classes are enjoyable, and the people are very friendly. When walking around campus, the overall vibe is exciting and lively. Dahlonega is a great town with a country atmosphere, and there are many mountains and rivers to explore! UNG is homey, but also has a great college feel. I am extremely happy with my decision to transfer here, because I have truly loved every second.
It was a huge culture shock! I'm from Jonesboro, GA and went to Mundy's Mill High School, so attending a college where none of your friends went to or even know about, building another group of friends, and basically "starting over" is an experience I can never forget! I've met a variety of people and had the opportunity to hang out with people from all over the world. The city, Dahlonega, is a great sight too! It's like a tourist town! You should see the town at night during Christmas. It's gorgeous! And there are always traditions going down in "The Square", like Bear on the Square and GoldRush! I love our school's cadets as well!
