press release from Merit Pages

DAHLONEGA, GA (09/28/2020)– The University of North Georgia (UNG) welcomed new cadets this fall after successful completion of Freshman Recruit Orientation Group (FROG) Week at UNG. 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.”

New cadets at UNG include:

Olamide Adekola of Loganville (30052)

Brycen Gran of Loganville (30052)

Christopher Martin of Monroe (30656)
