International Cadet Week

About International Cadet Week

The 4th Annual University of North Georgia International Cadet Week (ICW) provides international cadets with immersive exposure to the U.S., military, and senior military college cultures. More importantly, ICW fosters and incubates te relationships between international and UNG cadets that will benefit them in the future as they connect with each other later in their careers.

Cadets will live on the UNG campus, attend classes with our Corps of Cadets, visit the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Georgia, as well as other cultural experiences in Atlanta and the surrounding region. Cadets are provided lodging and meals while attending ICW. Cadets should bring spending money for their own use during cultural excursions.
