North Georgia College & State University (NGCSU), also known as The Military College of Georgia, is one of six senior military colleges in the United States. The majority of students, however, are not in the military. Located in Dahlonega, Georgia, the university was founded in 1873 as North Georgia Agricultural College, and was the first co-educational college in the state. It later became North Georgia College, before receiving its current name in 1996. Specializing in leadership training and producing leaders since 1873, the university has been designated as The Leadership Institution of Georgia. A prominent architectural feature of NGCSU is the gold leaf covered spire of the main administration building, Price Memorial Hall, which was the site of the Dahlonega branch of the United States Mint from 1838–1861. Dahlonega was a major gold rush town in the 1830s. Perhaps the most notable feature of NGCSU is its military program. Since its inception in 1873, the college required undergraduate resident males to participate in the Corps of Cadets, known as the "Boar's Head Brigade" (the corps was optional for resident undergraduate females and all commuting or graduate students). Beginning in 2008, due to legal action, North Georgia will begin transitioning away from mandatory ROTC, following the lead of Texas A&M and Virginia Tech. All male students will no longer be required to enroll in the military program. Life in the cadet corps helps prepare ROTC candidates for a military career, and cadets are required to take courses leading to a military science minor. However, cadets are not required to sign ROTC contracts or enter the military. A large number of cadets are members of the United States Army Reserve and Georgia Army National Guard, either in furtherance of military careers, or as a requirement of military scholarships.
