University of North Georgia Reviews
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!
I love it at UNG. I love the small town feel and the beautiful scenery, it's honestly the perfect home away from home. I have had good experiences with most of the professors and the advisers have been so kind and patient with me when I'm a wreck because I changed my major for the third time. Although I'm transferring to a different school to pursue a major that UNG doesn't offer, I'm very thankful for the guidance I've been given to really find out what I'm passionate about. Wish I didn't have to go!
