Blue Ridge Scholars seek to serve the local community

To find students enthusiastic about the service projects that are part of the Blue Ridge Scholars program at the University of North Georgia (UNG), Dr. Nathan Price interviewed the applicants this year to the cohort-style program.

"We get an idea of who they are and what they want to accomplish, and they get an idea about the program and its requirements," said Price, coordinator for the Blue Ridge Scholars program.

Blue Ridge Scholars are full-time freshmen who receive extra academic support in the first year and participate in service-learning activities. As a cohort, they have a lower teacher-to-student ratio to help ease the transition from high school to college.
