Oconee Campus Tour Video Transcript


Welcome to the University of North Georgia Oconee campus. My name is Kelsey. My friend Nathan and I will be guiding you on this video tour of our campus.

(Music plays while showing various scenes of students on campus.)

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 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 make an easy transition to either our Gainesville or Dahlonega campus to complete your bachelor's degree.

Your tour begins at the administration building.

(Shows map of campus and highlights the administration building.)

The information desk in the administration building is our question central.  Start here if you have questions or don't know where to go, and our staff will show you the way.  Here you will find
our cashier where students can pay tuition and pay other fees such as eCore
and placement retesting.

Admissions and enrollment management are located straight ahead for all questions regarding applying to the college and enrolling in classes.

Once you enter the administration building financial aid is located down the hall that is to your left, and at your financial aid department you can get information on loans, scholarships, or grants to help you support your college education.

In this building you can also find additional resources such as our campus CEO, learning support disability services, counseling, Dean of Students, and first-year experience, all of which are available to help with specific services that support student success.

Connected to and directly behind the administrative 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 and the academic advising center in this building. You can use the computer lab for research and studies.

(Shows map of campus and highlights the Classroom 300 building.)

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 to
teacher ratio and is why many of us choose to be here.

(Shows map of campus and highlights the bookstore.)
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 permits here at the card office.

(Shows map of campus and highlights the student resource center.)

Our Student Resource Center is the hub for student life. Our campus cafe is a great spot for grabbing a coffee or a quick lunch. Additionally,  we have TVs for video gaming, charging stations, and seating to take a break between classes.

(Shows map of campus and highlights the library.)

Our library offers everything you need to complete your research - computers, online databases, books, DVDs, and research help.

(Shows map of campus and highlights the student involvement office.)

Just around the corner from the library you can find our Student Involvement Office. The Oconee campus has
around 30 clubs and organizations and eight intramural sports teams that you can get involved in. Even if we don't have a club that interests you, student involvement can help you start it here at the Oconee campus.

The Student Involvement Office is also the hub for multicultural student affairs and leadership. As a leadership institution you'll want to check out all the opportunities available at ung to develop your leadership skills.

Down this hall you can find Room 522 which is the largest room on campus and is used for guest speakers, plays, and events. 

The SRC also includes eight classrooms. Additionally, you can find our foreign language lab and chemistry lab in this building.

(Shows map of campus and highlights the learning commons.)

The Learning Commons offers our free tutoring services including math, writing, accounting, biology, and chemistry. The Learning Commons holds two study rooms which students can use for studying in
groups or working on a group project.

Our SRC expansion contains multiple areas for student use. It is a great area to study before your exam or hangout between classes. 

(Shows map of campus and highlights the pavilion and volleyball.)

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.
