UNG finishes Freshman Recruit Orientation Group Week
Top Cadet Blake Schaper addresses FROGs prior to the start of the intensive six-day training at the University of North Georgia’s Dahlonega campus. FROG Week, when the group learns how to rely on each other and work together as a team, is the recruits’ transition from civilian student to military cadet.
Some 260 new cadets successfully finished Freshman Recruit Orientation Group Week, held Aug. 13-18 at the University of North Georgia’s Dahlonega campus, increasing the strength of the university’s Corps of Cadets to a record-setting 813 cadets. The intensive six-day training is held before classes begin for the fall and spring semesters to help new recruits, who are called FROGs, learn the customs and traditions of the school and military life. Instruction includes drill and ceremony, physical training, team-building exercises and military rules and regulations.
