Thanks for checking out the Dahlonega Campus here at the University of North Georgia. I'm Kasi and I will be your guide on this video tour. (A large group of students walk through the halls; a female student relaxes in a hammock; an aerial 360-degree view of the drill field.)
(Cheerful male narrator)
The University of North Georgia is located in the beautiful historic mountain town of Dahlonega.
Known widely for its historic town square, Dahlonega is embellished by artisan galleries, workshops, retail stores, restaurants, and bistros. This picturesque community,
only an hour north of Atlanta is home to the first major gold rush in the nation and is a popular tourist attraction.
Dahlonega is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains with its stunning waterfalls surrounded by lush forest and inhabited by abundant wildlife. The North Georgia region draws visitors who enjoy the great outdoors including hiking, mountain climbing, rafting, canoeing, fishing, and camping.
Students at the University of North Georgia can participate in numerous co-curricular organizations including honor societies, the military, performance and publication groups,
sororities and fraternities, as well as intramural sports.
North Georgia also competes in intercollegiate sports within the NCAA Division Two Peach Belt Conference.
Your tour begins at the main entrance to this beautiful Dahlonega Campus. Your first stop is at the Pennington Military Leadership Center.
(Kasi narrates from inside of the Pennington Military Leadership Center.)
If you wish to become an Army officer, you will spend much of your time here at the MLC building, where you will take military science courses. This is also the place where the Cadet Brigade Commander and his staff are located.
(Exterior, sweeping view of the modern Library Technology Center.)
(Kasi narrates from inside the library.)
The Library Technology Center is one of the most popular locations on campus with all the resources needed to complete most assignments. There is WIFI throughout the building, plenty of computers for your use, and group study rooms equipped with Smart Boards. There's even a dedicated Apple computer lab for all you Mac lovers. (Shot of students using Mac Desktops.)
Java City is located on the ground floor for you to enjoy coffee, sandwiches, and snacks.
(Aerial, exterior view of the state-of-the art brick Military Village residence halls.)
(Kasi narrates outside of the residence halls.)
Cadets live on Campus in the Military Village which consists of three residence halls: Liberty Hall, Patriot Hall, and Gaillard Hall. This modern housing is designed to accommodate four cadets per suite. Each suite has two rooms that share a private bathroom.
Three levels of ID access is required to get into the rooms. Common areas provide ping-pong, Foosball, billiards, and HD TVs. Free laundry facilities, a fully equipped kitchen, a theater room with a 60 inch LCD TV, and a computer lab round out a very nice living arrangement.

(Kasi narrates overlooking the drill field.)
Named in honor of North Georgia graduate General William J. Livsey, this drill field is the centerpiece of this Campus. Our cadets spend countless hours drilling and conditioning on this field.
Though considered hallowed ground, the entire campus community is welcome to use it for outdoor events and it's a great place to host intramural sports.
(Sweeping, aerial view of the brick Hoag Student Center.)
At the lower level of the Hoag Student Center is where you get your student ID cards, or Nighthawk cards, parking permits, meal plans, and manage your campus cash account.
If you go upstairs, you will find a food court that will provide you with an assortment of menu choices. For your convenience, the Hoag Student Center sits in the middle of the
many academic buildings where you will be attending classes.

(Kasi narrates from inside of the gym.)
Available to all UNG students, the Rec Center offers two floors of the most up-to-date fitness equipment. Free weights. Weight machines. Treadmills. Ellipticals. Bikes.
Just about anything you need for a good workout. Aerobic training rooms and classes are available too.
For the competitor in you, there are three full sized, oped access basketball and volleyball courts encircled by an indoor track. Locker rooms with showers are available so you can workout and go straight to your next class.
(Exterior view of the storefronts in the Chestatee Building.)
(Kasi narrates from inside the bookstore.)
On the edge of campus, and almost right on the square of Dahlonega, sits the Chestatee Building. This is where the University Bookstore is located along with other important administrative departments such as graduate, undergraduate, and cadet admissions.
Besides a lot of cool merchandise, the University Bookstore also carries everything needed for curriculum requirements. A Starbucks Coffee and a 16-foot video wall will make this a popular social spot where friends often meet to study, relax, and just hang out.
(Sweeping shot of the historic Price Memorial Hall, with its iconic gold-leaf steeple.)
Much like the drill field, Price Memorial is a landmark building on the Dahlonega Campus. It's gold covered steeple can be seen from most anywhere on Campus. Price Memorial houses the offices of many high-level UNG administrators including the office of the university president.
At UNG, class sizes are generally smaller than other universities. We're here at Young Hall which is one of the oldest buildings on Campus
but you wouldn't know it by looking at the classrooms inside. (Students sit in a modern auditorium classroom.)
(Sweeping aerial view over an outdoor patio that is part of the multi-level dining services building.)
This is probably the most popular location on campus. With your meal plan in place, the dining hall offers an abundant variety of great food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Two floors provide plenty of tables and there is even an outdoor patio that overlooks campus for enjoying those nice days.
(Sweeping zoom-out view of a modern glass and brick building.)
We've arrived at the Health and Natural Sciences Building which includes a planetarium. This facility is also home to one of the top nursing and physical therapy programs in the state.
(Aerial view of North Georgia Suites residence halls overlooking the surround lush forests.)
If you're not a cadet and you want to live on campus, then you'll reside here at the North Georgia Suites. Located behind the HNS building, you're less than a quarter mile from the drill field. There is plenty of student parking available as well.
Students can choose to stay in a double room, which shares bathroom facilities with another double room, or a single room, which shares bathroom facilities with another single room. Common areas equipped with WIFI and free laundry can be found on every floor.
Also available are traditional and apartment style accommodations at Owen, Lewis, and Donovan Halls which reside close to the drill field. (Images of students in their dorms, on bunk beds, and in common areas.)

(Kasi narrates adjacent to the soccer fields.)
With NCAA Division Two credentials, UNG offers highly competitive collegiate sports. (The softball team high-fives, basketball players shoot balls, rifle shooters practice, men hit tennis balls, women play soccer.)
Just across the street from the North Georgia Suites are the baseball, softball, and soccer fields that host games from other universities within the Peach Belt Conference. UNG also offers basketball, golf, tennis, and a rifle team for both men and women.
(Kasi stands outside of Price Memorial Hall.)
Well, now you've seen many of the primary locations on the Dahlonega Campus. Thanks for taking the tour with me.
