Dahlonega Campus Student Center

The Hoag Student Center is the community center of the campus for all members of the university family: students, faculty, staff, administration, alumni, and guests.

As the “living room” or “hearthstone” of the university community, the Student Center provides the services, conveniences, and amenities the members of the university family need for getting to know and understand one another through informal association outside the classroom. To accomplish these goals, the Student Center provides a variety of offices and services.

The Hoag Student Center opened in Dahlonega in 1970 and was named for Merritt E. Hoag who was president of North Georgia College from 1949 – 1970. The Student Center reopened in January of 2013 following a yearlong renovation project.
