Gordon State, USG Make it Easier to Get Back in Classroom, Earn Degree



Thinking about returning to college and earning that degree you were working on when life interrupted? Gordon State College and the University System of Georgia want to make it easier to Go Back and Move Ahead.

To help you get going, Gordon State is hosting an Open House Thursday, June 30 from 4 to 7 p.m.

During the Open House Gordon representatives will offer information on the enrollment process, financial aid, information on transferring earned college credit, course schedule options including Weekend College and other ways that will make returning to college and completing a degree easier.

"We'd love to visit with anyone who is interested in returning to the classroom and completing their degree," said Tamara Boatwright, Gordon's public information officer. "We will have staff and faculty on hand to answer any question you might have and help allay any concerns or fears about returning to school."

The free event is 4 to 7 p.m. in room 123 of the Nursing and Allied Health Sciences Building on Spencer Street. Parking is available adjacent to the building.

"We want this to be an easy, informal way to access information and to get people back on the road to completing their degree," Boatwright said. "We'll have some snacks, some giveaways and a live remote from the event from 3:30 to 5:30 by Fun 101.1."
