New (Academic) Year Upon Us

7. 30. 2014 - General Release

A new year is fast approaching Gordon State College! Actually, it's a new academic year and it all starts August 13 when students begin their first day of classes. Before we jump right into the fall semester, it may be good to close out the previous year. Baseball went to their eighth straight post-season tournament and continue to be a force in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association. The summer months were relatively quiet except for the announcement of the NJCAA academic awards. Congratulations to Head Cross Country Coach John Campbell and the 2013 squad as they qualified for the Academic Team of the Year. Their 3.17 GPA ranked them 18th in the country! Gordon State College was also pleased to recognize Rebecca Williams as she was named a NJCAA Academic Student-Athlete Award winner. While competing on Ally Hattermann's softball team, Williams posted a solid 3.75 GPA over her last four semesters. GSC is now getting ready for another year as we open the sports calendar in August with women's soccer. The Athletic Department also welcomes two new head coaches to campus for the 2014-15 academic year. Good Luck Highlanders!

Change Of Heart For Sherman

Garett Sherman arrived on the Gordon State College campus in August, 2012, to begin the new women’s basketball program.
