Several North Georgia mountain towns have colleges. Young Harris has already been mentioned.
Cleveland has Truett-McConnell University.
Demorest (not quite IN the mountains but practically so) has Piedmont College.
Dahlonega has the University of North Georgia.
Toccoa is very near the mountains; home of Toccoa Falls College

Waleska, more to the south and west, has Reinhardt University.
Gainesville has Brenau University (not really in the mountains either, but the nearest "large" city).

Athens is certainly not in the mountains!

I was looking in northern Georgia because I really like the mountains and am trying to avoid the humidity if I can - so if anyone knows of a place in the Georgia mountains with affordable housing, low crime, and not too low of a population, I would be interested. I would also be interested in other areas of Georgia if there is an off- the - beaten path place, that also has affordable housing and low crime.
Having some access to a college would be a bonus as well. Thank you

Based on your post, I recommend:

Young Harris

Rome could fit the bill.

Rome is nice, and has some size to it, so not really a small town.
Not really a "mountain town," either, but it does have some mountains, and the downtown area is very hilly!
Rome also has Shorter University; and Berry College, which has a lovely setting.
