A new series of children’s books exploring each campus of the University of North Georgia has been published by UNG President Bonita Jacobs.

The first book explores Dahlonega’s campus and is titled "UNG The Gold I See: The Legacy of UNG’s Dahlonega Campus,” according to an announcement from the university. The story follows a young boy, Tommy, and his family on their visit to the Dahlonega campus and includes tidbits about the campus’ programs and its past.

“UNG’s Dahlonega Campus was established in 1873 and has a rich history punctuated by its military emphasis and filled with tradition,” Jacobs said in the announcement.

The children’s book was illustrated by J’Nelle Short.

The series can be purchased on the university’s website. The next book will cover the Gainesville campus and is set for release in 2019. UNG has other campuses in Cumming, Oconee and Blue Ridge.
