Videos posted on social media show the carefree revelers not wearing masks and disregarding social distancing guidelines.

The rager was held at a privately owned, off-campus apartment complex near the campus in Dahlonega.

“We are aware that a large outdoor party was held at a privately-owned, off-campus apartment complex located near our Dahlonega campus Saturday night,” UNG spokeswoman Sylvia Carson wrote in statement.

“We are disappointed that many of our students chose to ignore COVID-19 public health guidance by congregating in a large group without social distancing or face coverings,” continued Carson.
