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!
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!
