DAHLONEGA, GA (09/28/2020) Brandon Kulp of Ludowici, GA, is among the new cadets to join the Corps of Cadets at the University of North Georgia (UNG) this fall after successful completion of Freshman Recruit Orientation Group (FROG) Week. FROG Week, led by cadets with supervision from the commandant staff, helps transition the incoming cadets to the military lifestyle of the Corps.

Structure has always been part of FROG Week at UNG. It increased this year with social distancing, masks, and other health and safety protocols implemented as the Corps of Cadets welcomed about 180 freshmen to campus for the Aug. 6-15 training event.

"FROG Week looked a little different this year because we're following the COVID-19 guidelines to keep every cadet healthy and safe," said retired Col. Joseph Matthews, commandant of cadets at UNG. "What has not changed is that we're still training the next generation of Army leaders."

Positioned in the fastest-growing region of the state, the University of North Georgia comprises five campuses united by a single mission focused on academic excellence and academic and co-curricular programs that develop students into leaders for a diverse and global society. The University of North Georgia is a University System of Georgia leadership institution and is The Military College of Georgia. With more than 20,000 students, the University of North Georgia is one of the state's largest public universities. The university offers more than 100 programs of study ranging from certificate and associate degrees to professional doctoral programs.
