"I guarantee that you will choke up with pride when your son or daughter graduates from the Corps of Cadets at the University of North Georgia. My son was in the Corps of Cadets, and my wife and I can personally attest to the tremendous value that the leadership development and education offered by the Corps of Cadets adds to their preparation for life after college."
In the picture to the right, I am administering the oath of office to my son who became a second lieutenant of aviation in the US Army in May 2011.
"We are not looking for young men and women who need discipline, we're looking for disciplined young men and women who want to be leaders. We're looking for the same character sought by West Point."
I am Keith Antonia, Director of Cadet Admissions, this site was created for the parents who have a son or daughter in the Corps OR who have a child that is considering joining the Corps at UNG.

“Sir, my son (name) recently completed his first semester at the University of North Georgia. I just wanted to take the time to report to you how thrilled we are with UNG and the peace we have as parents knowing that our son is in good hands. (Name) completed his first semester with a 3.6 gpa and earned 15 credits. He is taking advantage of the North Georgia National Guard Partnership Program and is taking the spring semester off to attend Basic Training/AIT (Infantry). He actually left for Ft. Benning yesterday. When I asked him how he liked North Georgia he told me it has surpassed all of his expectations. (Name) was also involved with the Wrestling, Brazillian Ju-Jitsu clubs, and Baptist Collegiate Ministries, and plans to stay connected with those groups when he returns to North Georgia. Thank you again for developing my son into a solid student and future leader.”
