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!

Beautiful school in the mountains! Continues to grow and will no doubt expand. The academics are excellent, your degree will be seen as valuable. Relatively small classroom sizes are a plus in my opinion. Additionally, the professors have no problem engaging with the students in class or after class. I've seen friends receive recommendations from professors at UNG that ended up jump-starting their career. The school does a great job helping you get out into your field after you graduate. While the cost of tuition has risen in recent years, it still puts other colleges to shame. Good bang for your buck!
I began at the University of North Georgia as a dual-enrolled student in the fall of 2016. I was a little nervous but soon flowed right into everything. I made friends, I learned so much from the classes I took and the teachers that actually taught! The teachers are there to teach and are there to also help you in every way possible. Use all the resources offered. It will totally save your life. I would totally recommend this college!
