Oconee Campus Tour Video Transcript
(Nathan, your student tour guide, stands outside of the UNG's Oconee Campus on a clear day.)
Hello, and welcome to the University of North Georgia-Oconee Campus. My name is Nathan, and I will be your guide on this video tour.
(Cheerful male narrator introduces the Oconee Campus lifestyle with images of students, storefronts, townhomes, and a courtyard restaurant.)
The University of North Georgia's Oconee Campus sits only 15 minutes from downtown Athens with its robust student population, plenty of housing, shopping, restaurants and nightlife.
(Students walk around campus and work together in classrooms and laboratories.)
The Oconee Campus provides a unique college experience, capitalizing on the area's sense of community. Having a small campus environment allows students to be connected to their instructors and other classmates, fostering an environment for academic success.
You can start on an associate or bachelor's degree path on our Oconee Campus, and either complete your associate degree on our Oconee Campus or you can easily transition to either our Gainesville or Dahlonega campus to complete your bachelor's degree.
Your tour begins at the Administration building. (The administration building is highlighted on a three-dimensional campus map graphic.)
(Nathan begins to speak directly to the camera.)
We are in the Administration building, which houses student services such as financial aid, career and transfer services, personal counseling, academic advising, disability services, testing, admissions, registrar, and the dean of students.
At the front desk, you can pick up your parking permit, submit documents or assignments, pay your tuition and fees and take care of other administrative functions. And, you can get help with the application process from our Admissions office.
(The testing center and computer lab area is highlighted on a three-dimensional map graphic.)
(Nathan narrates as students work on computers in the lab.)
Connected to and directly behind the Administration building is the testing center and computer lab. This is where CLEP and COMPASS testing occurs, and sometimes regular class tests. There are also faculty offices in the Academic Advising Center in this building. You can use the computer lab for research and studies.
(Classroom 300-Building is highlighted on the three-dimensional map graphic; Nathan narrates.)
The 300 building is the primary student classroom building which houses two biology labs and two more computer labs in addition to the regular classrooms. These classrooms are designed to accommodate approximately 32 students. Don't forget, one of the major advantages at this campus is the low student/teacher ratio. It's why many of us choose to be here.
(Faculty Center/Bookstore is highlighted on the three-dimensional map graphic; Nathan narrators)
At the Campus Connection, AKA the bookstore, you can get everything you need for class. New and used textbooks, supplies, and all the UNG apparel you need to outfit yourself in the latest UNG fashion. You also get your Nighthawks Card and your parking permit here at the card office.
(Student Resources Center building is highlighted on the three-dimensional map graphic; Nathan narrates from outside the Student Resources Center.)
The building right behind me is the Student Resource Center, which is the hub of student life on this campus. Inside the atrium, you will find a Starbucks, vending machines, gaming systems and large flat screen televisions. Students enjoy this spot for lunch or hanging out and relaxing in between classes. And, campus-wide WiFi provides a fast connection for all of your mobile devices and laptops.
(The library is highlighted on the three-dimensional map graphic; Nathan narrates from inside the library.)
The library offers an extensive selection of content for your research assignments. But just in case you can't find what you are looking for, UNG is a part of the University System of Georgia, which grants you access to any state library and have it delivered here for your use. Library specialists are available to assist in finding the proper articles and databases, and tutoring services are also available. You can inquire about any of these services at the library front desk.
(The Student Involvement Office is highlighted on the three-dimensional map graphic; Nathan narrates outside of a staff member's office.)
To get a more complete college experience, you will want to get involved in the many student activities offered here at the Oconee Campus. Clubs, organizations, and activities provide you with opportunities to meet other students and build a network of resources, as well as build a resume for future success.
More faculty offices, the chemistry lab and the foreign language labs are located just down the hall.
(Pavilion and volleyball court are highlighted on the three-dimensional map graphic; Nathan narrates outside.)
Students often enjoy getting together for picnics and a game of volleyball here at the Pavilion. This area is available to all students and is a great place to host social events or just chill out.
(Students walk in and out of the Oconee Campus' buildings.)
Well, now you have seen many of the primary locations that the Oconee Campus has to offer. I want to thank you all very much for taking this tour with me.
As you continue your education, the University of North Georgia is THE choice for you. Whether building your resume in order to obtain a fulfilling career or for graduate school, UNG offers opportunities for you.
