Around 190 students transitioned from being civilians to cadets at Freshman Orientation Group (FROG) Week at the University of North Georgia (UNG), which ran Aug. 11-17. Locals named cadets are:
- David Essex of Hoschton.
- Kobe Holland of Hoschton.
From rifle range training to an academics introduction, incoming cadets were presented with a great deal of information about UNG and how the Corps of Cadets fits within the university, school leaders state. They also completed grueling leadership exercises at Pine Valley, rappelled at the Army Rangers' Camp Frank D. Merrill and capped off the week with the Crown Mountain Run the morning of the traditional FROG Week graduation.
