University of North Georgia (UNG) President Bonita Jacobs has written the first in a series of children's books that will feature each of the university's five campuses. Published by UNG Press, "UNG The Gold I See: The Legacy of UNG’s Dahlonega Campus," tells the story of a young boy and his family during their visit to the campus. "UNG The Gold I See" engages readers of all ages through its multi-generational main characters. Benjamin Brown, daughter Jamie, and grandson Tommy each have a different goal during Visitors Day at the Dahlonega Campus. The grandfather wants to recall the memories of his years in the Corps of Cadets, while Tommy's mother wants to remember her years in UNG's nursing program. Tommy wants to find the legendary treasure: the gold hidden somewhere on campus. He has Nigel the Nighthawk, UNG's mascot, and a treasure map to guide him; his grandfather and mother have their memories. "UNG The Gold I See" is the first in a series about the five UNG campuses: Dahlonega, Gainesville, Cumming, Oconee, and Blue Ridge. The book about Gainesville campus is already in development and will release in 2019.
