I love the University of North Georgia! I love the class size, the mountainous scenery and how kind everyone is. It's easy to adapt to and I feel that it is very possible to get involved and excel at this university.
Allie from Dawsonville, GA
North Georgia is located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Appalachian mountains and the surrounding area is beautiful year round. The campus is small enough to easily walk to all of your classes but big enough that you can meet amazing new people each day. There are truly so many activities in the area to fit every personality type from rock climbing and white water rafting, to shopping and eating at restaurants that serve authentic southern comfort food.
