Boar's Head Brigade-Corps Alumni Weekend 2019, sponsored by the North Georgia Corps of Cadets Association (NGCCA) returns for the fourth year to the UNG Dahlonega Campus on September 27-29 with the goal of connecting current and former cadets during a weekend of fellowship, mentoring and networking. All corps alumni are invited to invest in a variety of events, classes, speakers, socials, recognition and remembrances. Alumni do not have to be NGCCA members to attend and all UNG alumni and guests are welcome!
The purpose of the weekend is twofold:
To enjoy the fellowship of alumni cadets. (Get your classmates together and come join us!!).
To bond undergraduate cadets with career-experienced alumni to assist in career planning. Whether a cadet intends to enter civilian life or the military after graduation, each networking/mentoring event endeavors to create successful leaders and loyal UNG alumni of the future.
