Founded in 1873, the University of North Georgia comprises five campuses in Blue Ridge, Cumming, Dahlonega, Gainesville, and Oconee County, all located in the state’s fastest-growing region. With a total enrollment of nearly 20,000 students, UNG is one of the largest public universities in the state. UNG’s emphasis on leadership, innovation, collaboration, and exploration unleashes students’ potential to make a meaningful impact in the workforce and in the communities they serve. UNG strives to develop students into leaders for a diverse and global society by providing a culture of academic excellence in a student-focused environment that includes quality education, service, inquiry and creativity. As a result, UNG has produced generations of military, professional and civic leaders who serve in Georgia and throughout the world. UNG is one of only six federally-designated senior military colleges in the nation, and its Dahlonega Campus hosts an all-Army ROTC Corps of Cadets of more than 750 students. This distinctive part of UNG’s mission and identity have garnered the university designations as a State Leadership Institution and The Military College of Georgia.
