During Oconeefest, the University of North Georgia Oconee campus scholarship banquet, freshman Jessie Chambers said that even before college, she had UNG on her mind. 

“During the summer, enroute to the swimming pool, we would often pass the Oconee campus and I would always tell my dad, ‘I want to go there, dad,’” said Chambers, “and after that, every time we would pass, my parents would say, ‘There’s Jessie’s school.’”
