From a Parent

“Sir, my son 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.  [He] 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.  [He] was also involved with the Wrestling, Brazilian 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.”
