Cadet Life on Campus Video Transcript

(Narrator) The University of North Georgia, a senior military college where you will find opportunities for a great education that are complemented with state of the art facilities. As a cadet, you will live in an ultra-modern residence hall, study in a cutting edge library and media center. Work out in a modern, fully equipped, fitness and REC center. Learn military science and history from Army officers and NCO’s. Eat in a new dining facility that has everything, and all of this, nestled in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains.

(Action Sequence)

(Narrator) Every Cadet begins their day with some physical training on the historic Lipp Livsey Drill Field. PT is a great way to begin the day and routine for those pursuing a military path. From here, it’s to the showers before your first class.

(Cadet Andrew, housing) You’ll be living in modern housing that is designed to accommodate four cadets per suite. Each suite has two rooms that share a private bathroom. It’s also reassuring to have three levels of ID access into this room. All common areas provide for a little downtime with ping pong, foosball, billiards, and flat screen TVs. There is even a dedicated home theatre equipped with a 60 IN LCD TV to watch movies or play video games.

(Cadet Karlie, library) I’m meeting my research team here at the library to work on an assignment. This library provides students with all the resources necessary to be successful with any project. There’s literally a computer and wireless internet access anywhere you might find yourself in this building. There is even an apple dedicated computer lab. Having extensive books, videos, and periodic sections at your fingertips is extremely helpful.  My research team is here in one of the many group study rooms equipped with smartboards. With the coffee that I picked up from Java City, I’m ready to go.

(Rec Center cadet) As a future Army officer, I want to stay in good shape so I spend a lot of time here at the Rec center. This awesome facility is available to all North Georgia students and offers two full floors of exercise 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. Spark your competitive nature, there are three full sized open access basketball and volleyball courts encircled by an indoor track. Locker rooms with showers are available so you can change and go straight to your next class.

(Chestatee Building) On the edge of campus and almost right in 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, under graduate, and cadet admissions. Besides a lot of cool north Georgia merchandise, the university bookstore carries everything that a cadet needs to maintain proper dress code and purchase other optional equipment. A Starbucks coffee and a 16ft video wall makes this a popular social spot where friends often come to study, relax, or just hang out.

(MLC) To become an army officer, you will spend much of your time here at the Military Leadership Center where you will take military science courses. This is also the place where the Cadet Brigade Commander and his staff are located.

(Chow) Did you know that with your meal plan you can get access to this all you can eat dining facility that serves almost any type of food that you could think of? Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you can get great food here any time. Lots of serving locations means fast service even during peak times. Two floors of dining options assures that you can always find a place to sit. There’s even an outdoor plaza for dining on those sunny days.

(Dahlonega) Another great part here at North Georgia is the fact that our campus is located practically on the square of Dahlonega. Why is this so great? Because you will find that many people here love and support this university and its activities. North Georgia is part of a rich heritage here in Dahlonega and we are all part of this community. Dahlonega is also a popular tourist town so there are lots of great shops and restaurants.

 I like the great outdoors, so for me, I couldn’t be any cooler place. I can go biking, camping, fishing, kayaking, and even hike the Appalachian Trail and all within minutes of campus

(Narrator)Visit North Georgia and see for yourself the outstanding value offered to anyone that wants to put their career on a path to success.
