North Georgia College

INTRODUCTION TO
NORTH GEORGIA COLLEGE

North Georgia College was founded in 1873 as a liberal arts military college for men and
women. It is a state supported senior unit of the University System of Georgia under the direction
of the State Board of Regents. It is located in Dahlonega, Georgia, on the site of the original U.S.
Government Gold Mint. Dahlonega, a town of about 3,000 people, is located in the foothills of
the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains — 70 miles and 1 '/2 hours north of Atlanta via GA 400 or I-
85 and Georgia 60 through Gainesville.

The undergraduate student enrollment at North Georgia College is approximately 1 ,800, placing
it in a medium size range with 70% of the students living in dormitories. The college is small
enough for the individual to stand apart and be identified by the faculty and other students, yet
with enough size to make varied and diversified programs possible. Being a state school, the
majority of the students have graduated from Georgia high schools, but graduates from many
different high schools from across the nation and around the world are also enrolled.

CO-EDUCATIONAL NATURE

From its founding in 1873, North Georgia College has been co-educational. The majority of
the women students are not involved in the military program, but they constitute approximately
one-half of the total student enrollment. Women students may, however, participate in the ROTC
program, and all undergraduate, male students living on campus must participate.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The purpose of North Georgia College is to provide an academically sound liberal arts education
for all its students while at the same time providing its students an opportunity for preparation for
a military career. It further recognizes that the vocational and professional needs of its students
are best served on the senior college level through specialized programs of study built around a
well-developed general education program.

In conjunction with the academic program, the College is designated as a Military College by
the Department of the Army, and through its Military training program promotes the development
of leaders for community, state, and national service.

Consistent with the foregoing. North Georgia College aspires more specifically:

to stimulate and develop intelligent citizens for responsible leadership in society by providing
an environment conducive to learning;

to encourage investigation and research to enable students to succeed in graduate and profes-
sional study;

to provide for and encourage the development of moral, social, cultural, physical and aesthetic
appreciations as they relate and contribute to the total development of the individual;

to provide sound semi-professional and professional programs for developing men and women
with the capacity to satisfy their material needs through gainful employment;

to serve and to be responsible to the needs of the community by the extension of educational
services through the development of cultural activities and by sharing of professional expertise
for community benefit;

to encourage among the faculty the maintenance of a high level of scholarship, an interest in
research and a continuing concern for the role of higher education in the betterment of society.



Introduction

UNIVERSITY SYSTEM OF GEORGIA

All state-supported institutions of higher learning in Georgia were combined into the greater
University System of Georgia by legislative enactment at the regular session of the General Assembly
in 1931 . Under the articles of the Act, all existent boards of trustees were abolished and control
of the System was vested in a Board of Regents with all the powers and rights of the former
governing boards of the several institutions. Control of the System by the Board of Regents became
effective January 1, 1932.

On January 18, 1950, the Board of Regents reaffirmed the position of North Georgia College
as a senior unit of the University System by passing a resolution which reads in part as follows.
"The North Georgia College at Dahlonega shall be continued as a college of arts and sciences at
the bachelor's level and as the one institution in the Georgia System distinguished by its essentially
military organization for men." This resolution remains unchanged.

ACCREDITATION

North Georgia College, as a senior member of the University System of Georgia, is an accredited
member of the Association of American College and Schools, the Association of Military Colleges
and Schools, the Southern Association of Colleges, and the Association of Georgia Colleges.

Its work in the field of education is recognized and accredited by the National Council for
Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Georgia State Department of Education.

The Associate of Science in Nursing Degree Program is approved by the Georgia Board of
Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Degree Program has developmental approval by the Georgia Board of Nursing, and accreditation
by the National League for Nursing is pending.

The quality of the training offered in all departments has long enjoyed national recognition. A
significant number of its graduates attend graduate and professional schools; and just as signifi-
cantly, perhaps, is the fact that many of its military graduates, as they move into active service,
go to military graduate school.

LIBRARY SERVICES

Stewart Library is centrally located on the campus between Dunlap Hall and the Student Center.
During the four academic quarters, the library is open week-ends and evenings for research,
browsing and/or study. Housed here are well over 1 20,000 volumes, regular issues of nearly 1 ,000
magazines, newspapers and journals. Back issues are in bound volumes or on microfilm (including
the New York Times daily from September, 1851 to date). Holdings also include several hundred
sound recordings, as well as 8 and 16 mm films, cassettes, film loops, and other audio-visual
materials.

Facilities include: individual study carrels, a seminar/classroom, typing room, three small con-
ference/study rooms, a stereo-equipped music listening room, microform reader-printers and coin
operated photocopy machines. An entrance ramp and wide-entrance elevator are provided for
wheelchair access.

Professional librarians are always on duty to aid students in locating and using library materials.
Interlibrary loan service provides access to materials from other libraries.

Library hours are posted in the lobby. Visitors are welcome during open hours. Library orientation
tours or introductory tours for groups or individuals can be arranged.

activities, and engineering major.

To be admitted to the Regents Engineering Transfer Program at this institution, students must
have achieved at least:

1 . 550 on the mathematics portion of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT); and

2. 450 on the verbal portion of the SAT; and

3. 3.0 high school grade point average.

curriculum which is well-coordinated with that of Georgia Tech. Specific times each quarter have
been established for students to visit the Georgia Tech campus and meet with representatives of
their anticipated major.

Regents Engineering Transfer Program students who satisfactorily complete the pre-engineering
curriculum and apply for transfer will be accepted to Georgia Tech. However, admission to the
most popular majors, as for other Georgia Tech students, will be based upon overall grade point
