The mission of NIGHTHAWK ATHLETICS is to build and maintain highly competitive intercollegiate programs that rank among the elite in both the Peach Belt Conference and NCAA Division II. UNG athletic programs offer a comprehensive learning experience for student-athletes by teaching them the core principles of competition, integrity, personal character, and sportsmanship. Your donation will support 13 intercollegiate sports and promote each student's success on and off the playing field.

"you're not going to remember every game. you're not going to remember every practice. you're not going to remember the mistakes you made in your sport, but you are going to remember the impact the school had on you and how they built you as a leader and as an athlete."

- McKay Shively, Athlete, University of North Georgia's Women's Soccer
