  • Everill Anne Faircloth, 27, always dreamed of serving her country in the armed forces. She also wanted to follow in her grandmother's footsteps and become a nurse. The Ellenwood, Georgia, native appeared to be on her way and enrolled at UNG in January 2011. Then life happened and she dropped out in May 2013. Six years later, Faircloth is returning to UNG as a senior and starting the nursing program in January 2019.

  • Due to anticipated black ice and poor travel conditions early tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, UNG will delay opening until 10 a.m. on all campuses. All exams scheduled for Tuesday, December 11, will be shifted 2 hours later than originally scheduled, with the exception of the exams scheduled for classes that meet Wednesdays only at 7 p.m. Those Wednesday-only classes will have their exam Tuesday from 7:50-9:50 p.m. as originally scheduled.

  • In a program that is the only one of its kind in the South, the University of North Georgia’s Department of Physical Therapy has addressed the Catch-22 that prevents many international and non-doctoral professionals from continuing their education and/or becoming certified in the U.S.
    That was the case for Amir Davijani, who had worked for 30 years as physical therapist and lecturer on the subject at an Iranian university. But when he moved to the U.S., he could not practice because he did not have a doctoral degree. And he couldn't earn the degree because he did not have a license to work in the U.S.
    UNG had the answer with its post-professional Doctor of Physical Therapy program.
    "We designed this innovative program that would accept professionals and international students, who don't have a license to practice in the U.S.," said Dr. Mohammad "Reza" Nourbakhsh, professor of physical therapy at UNG.
    Davijani and five other international students are enrolled in the program.

  • UNG is breaking new ground in its study of guide dogs, the visually impaired people who use them and their harness devices. Nine graduate students are assisting professors in this research. "People are using these dogs, and they're very effective at helping them with mobility and keeping them safe," College of Health Sciences and Professions Dean Teresa Conner-Kerr said. "But we haven't optimized how they use them to prevent physical injury. Eventually UNG's PT program will be known for this."

  • Mark Taylor, part-time adjunct faculty member of visual arts at University of North Georgia, developed the curriculum for his graphic design for advertising with nonprofit clients to give UNG students a taste of the professional world.
    So far, it has proved beneficial.
    "This has been a huge learning experience for them and myself," Taylor said. "One of the main objectives was to have students interact with a client that they cannot receive from a classroom situation."

  • This summer, University of North Georgia (UNG) faculty member Dr. Jessica "Jess" Hartel was teaching a class about primates when she wanted to incorporate skull specimens to allow students to compare the species' differences.
    She and Dr. Jon Mehlferber, professor of visual arts at UNG, devised a plan to use the MakerBot Innovation Center's 3D printers to replicate many primate skulls.
    Hartel was thrilled with the results.
    "My initial thought was, 'This was 3D printed?'" she said.
