Additional Information:

Pine Valley is UNG’s outdoor recreational facility located 6 miles west of campus. Orientation attendees will have a cookout at Pine Valley on the evening of Day 1. Attendees will participate in small group team building prior to dinner and have the option to play basketball, soccer, and volleyball during free time. Attendees will also be able to go tubing if they choose (hence the need for a swimsuit and closed toe shoes). We will also have two ropes course elements open for optional participation. All ropes course activities will be supervised by certified staff.

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
