SGA State of the Campus

Depending on when you left UNCG, the university may seem very different than the one you remember. However, UNCG students are still prioritizing service, advocacy and career opportunities. Read more about a student perspective on UNCG in SGA President Chelsea Boccardo's State of the Campus address.

NIH-Funded Alzheimer's study seeking volunteers

Alzheimer's disease is on the rise, but many studies suggest that exercise can help stave off the effects. UNCG's Dr. Jennifer Etnier is examining the interaction between exercise and genetics in a funded study, and she's looking for volunteers. Read more about how you can help fight Alzheimer's by enrolling in a free exercise program.

Five ways to connect and build a career network

Over the past 10 years, we have seen a dramatic shift within universities in how connections are made and maintained, as well as a growth in our alumni base and new and exciting ways to reach out and connect with fellow UNCG alumni, students and staff. Read more from Dr. Patrick Madsen, director of the UNCG Career Services Center, about ways you can build your career network.
