With high school students in the midst of the college application process, each of the University of North Georgia's (UNG) campuses is hosting Open House events to give future Nighthawks a chance to see what opportunities await at UNG.
"We have an Open House on each campus every semester. These are tremendous opportunities for prospective students and parents to learn about how UNG can prepare students for careers or further education after graduating college," said Keith Antonia, executive director of undergraduate admissions. "Prospective students learn about academic programs, co-curricular programs and activities, financial aid, admissions process, take a campus tour, and more."
