  • The University System of Georgia Board of Regents approved the plan for a Student Health Services facility at its April 2019 meeting. The service allows the Gainesville Campus to take another step toward a more comprehensive environment and holistic health approach for students.
    "Having Student Health Services on site is a logical addition to support the healthy lifestyles of our students," said Dr. Richard Oates, vice president of the Gainesville Campus.
    The center will be funded through a mandatory $65 student fee, which mirrors the Dahlonega Campus; the health services fee in Dahlonega will drop in spring 2020 from $70 to $65 per semester. It also means students on both campuses may access both facilities, said Dr. Alyson Paul, dean of students on the Gainesville Campus.

    "I had to go by myself because my parents did not speak English," he said.

  • Single mom Jessica Hamilton thought she was not the best role model she could be for her young daughter.
    "I was settling in life," she said. "I wasn't making ends meet, and that was not OK. I wanted to inspire my daughter and show her that she could be all she wants to be."
    Hamilton is now doing just that as she interns this summer at #MPSGoettingen thanks to the #DAAD_Germany Research Internships in Science and Engineering scholarship.

  • UNG's Mike Cottrell College of Business will have a new home in 2022, thanks to a second $10 million gift from its namesake benefactor and $2.3 million in state funds for planning and design this year. The building will be called the Cottrell Center for Business, Technology and Innovation.
    "I am grateful to Mike and Lynn Cottrell for their exceptional generosity," UNG President Bonita Jacobs said. "The Cottrells have made the two largest contributions in UNG’s 145-year history, and, in doing so, they have provided transformational support for our students and graduates to be regionally and globally competitive business leaders."
    The 91,000-square-foot business and technology building, with an estimated total cost of $35 million, will be located on UNG's Dahlonega Campus. The planned site is just off Chestatee Street near the main campus entrance. Groundbreaking is anticipated to take place in 2020, and construction is expected to take about two years.

  • June 6th, 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, the Normandy invasion (Operation Overlord) that resulted ultimately in the liberation of Europe from Nazi domination. This “forcible entry” operation was the largest and most famous amphibious and joint operation in the history of warfare involving the combined forces of Britain, Canada, France, and the US Navy, Coast Guard, and Army Air and Ground Forces. On D-Day, the Allies suffered 4,414 confirmed dead. This is four times the number KIA at the landings at Tarawa in the Pacific. As a reflection of the intensity, especially at Omaha and among the troops generally, of the 12 awards of the Congressional Medal of Honor for the Normandy Campaign, six were awarded to members of the 1st and 29th Infantry Divisions on Omaha Beach. North Georgia has its own “Greatest Generation” legacy. Captured by name and photos in the “Gold Star” edition of the college yearbook for 1949 (a few of which are shared here), one hundred and nine North Georgia alumni lost their lives during World War II. Their service spans every component of the Armed Forces of the United States and every theater of operations. As we remember D-Day, it is an appropriate time for us to pause to remember them as well. #UNGleads #DDay #GreatestGeneration #UNGserves #Army

  • For the past seven summers, Dr. Pamela Elfenbein, a team of staff and students in UNG's Human Services Delivery and Administration (HSDA) program, and community partners fed at-risk children in low-income areas. They served more than 100,000 meals to thousands of students in as many as seven counties in the program's history.
    This year the SFSP will operate in Forsyth County only and serve an estimated 400 children, Elfenbein said. It marks the lowest number of participants since 2012, but Elfenbein calls it a success.
    "The action UNG and its partners took to serve hungry children educated the public about the food needs and changed the community's attitudes and behaviors," Elfenbein said.
    She said counties that previously participated in the SFSP will operate summer food programs in their own borders.
