Kasey - 05/15/2020

I really enjoyed the University of North Georgia's main campus in Dahlonega. The town is small, and quite, nestled in North Georgia's beautiful mountain region. The class sizes are not outrageous and the majority of the professors are great. The college has grown tremendously since I graduated 3 years ago, and I know they could use more parking for their commuting students. There was plenty of times I was late or parked somewhere I shouldn't because I couldn't find parking- this includes my graduation day!

Venice - 05/06/2020

The school is great, the students and staff are very friendly. The campus also feels very homey and safe. The teachers really listen and are understanding with the students and give them encouragement to complete work. I would really recommend my friends and family to visit or apply.

Cayton - 03/05/2020

The University of North Georgia is a great school to attend. It is extremely safe, has a beautiful atmosphere in the mountains, and has lots of history and traditions because of the Corps of Cadets. While not everyone is a military student, the military lifestyle and traditions are definitely a big part of our school and that is one of the things I love about it.

Hannah - 01/28/2020

I am currently a sophomore at the University of North Georgia. During the time that I have been enrolled there, I have enjoyed having the opportunity to meet classmates with similar interests and to share our experiences on campus. There are a variety of extracurricular activities to partake in.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Now being a sophomore in college the one thing I would tell myself if I could go back in time would be to take as many AP classes as I could and work on study habits. It would have been so much easier if I had taken the AP classes and get the needed score so I wouldn't have to take as many core classes in college. It can save you so much money. Another piece of advice would be to develop good study habits early on. I was always good at school, but the way college is set up is totally different, and at first it was a huge struggle trying to adapt to how the classes were, but once you get the hang of it and learn time management it is not that bad. The changes we go through make us who we are and I truely would not change a thing.
