GGC schedules open house

LAWRENCEVILLE — Prospective students are invited to an open house at Georgia Gwinnett College next month.

The event, scheduled for Oct. 19, is designed for students interested in attending GGC next year. It’s the first open house that includes information about the college’s new baccalaureate program in nursing, which will start the fall semester of 2014.

Sessions at the open house will include topics such as the admissions process, financial aid, GGC’s unique student success programs, transferring credits to GGC and services offered to the disabled. Prospective students will meet with advisors, and there are special sessions for parents.

“We highly recommend that high school seniors and their parents start visiting colleges now, if they have not already done so,” said Tee Mitchell, director of admissions, in a press release. “Choosing a college is an important decision, and application deadlines are not far off. GGC has something to offer all students and we look forward to sharing our campus at open house.”

Seating is limited and registration is required. High school seniors and juniors can register online at www.ggc.edu/openhouse.

GGC was recently ranked the No. 5 top public Southern regional college, according to the 2014 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges. It also is a College of Distinction and a 2014 Military Friendly School.
