  • Degree: Graphic Design
  • Graduation Year: 2021
"Please do not major in any of the Art programs here at UNG, especially the Graphic Design, Animation, and Visual art bachelor's program. The programs are lackluster and the majority of the classes can be done online for free. Speaking of which, I've taken three graphic design courses and find it ironic that the professors are using adobe and other related free videos online for the curriculum. You're literally paying over 1K for a class that you can teach yourself online for FREE. Also, the art professors offer little to no knowledge of how to actually be good and excel as an artist. The majority of my professor only graded for participating and turning in the work/projects. They do not grade on quality or provide constructive feedback. I had an incident where an Art professor stated the following "I really don't care how well the students do, as long as they're getting somewhat of the basics down, I guess that's good enough. If they refuse to listen to my way of doing things, that's not my problem" For one, there is no one-way standard way of teaching. Some students prefer alternative teaching styles in order to understand the criteria. You can't just assume a student will learn your old, outdated techniques and expect to learn everything offhand. Speaking in regards to the Gainesville campus, it's really a community college culture disguised as a university. Lots of commuters and there isn't really any culture or party scenes. The buildings are bland and outdated and the isn't a lot of clubs or greek culture to attend here. I recommend going to GSU or UGA if you're majoring in an Arts degree. The art program at UNG is a joke."

"I cannot brag about my undergraduate institution enough. I left UNG with mentors who continue to help me reach my career goals. UNG's classes and professors prepared me for graduate school. No matter what career path you plan on taking, be sure to participate in different organizations on campus. I was involved in Supplemental Instruction, the Honors program, Sigma Tau Delta, the Chestatee Review, and more. These organizations make all the difference!"

"Overall, I enjoyed my time at the University of North Georgia. The campus is beautiful, tuition not too costly, and courses challenging but not impossible. UNG's psychology program is perhaps not as extensive as other schools', but I felt that I obtained a strong grasp of the topics in the field. I would caution that the school is not particularly welcoming to minorities. UNG is a military college situated in the rural south. Racial minorities in particular may feel uncomfortable in Dahlonega--many of the cars in the area have confederate flags on the plates."

"I chose this school because it was one of the few in the state that had a Forensics Program. The location of this school is amazing. It is located at the bottom of the mountains. The traditions and activities that go on on campus are that of any college town. As for the school, they had a poor thought process with their building plans. The school has very limited parking for commuters and residents but that can be expected. The issue was that they cut the park spaces in half to build a convocation and a parking deck at the same time, in different locations on campus. '"

"I attended the University of North Georgia Gainesville campus. It is a small, yet expanding campus. There are currently dorms available only for the Dahlonega campus. Every year more opportunities become available to students; unfortunately for me, I feel that better and a lot more opportunities will be available to students post my graduation. However, I had opportunities to network, because I attended science conferences. Preparing for these conferences helped build leadership, organization, and communication skills, and you also learned how to work with a team. As far as Professors, for the most part, they are willing to help you and give you advise. As to be expected, the upper level classes are rigorous. I recommend mostly studying on your own, because studying in groups can be more confusing at times, unless you have a "study buddy". Overall my experience there was a good one, and I would recommend this school to prospective students."

"I very much enjoyed my experience at the University of North Georgia Dahlonega campus. The classes are great, and the college professors and helpful and friendly. There are many resources available to help you out if you are having trouble in a class, or a re stressed about an assignment, and the social possibilities are endless."

"Dahlonega is a small town in the mountains but offers you a great environment to go to college. Not a lot of distractions with a big city close by. North Georgia was a great school to go to for me. I liked the closeness I felt there and could actually walk on campus and say hey to people because it was small enough."
