Student Services Center Construction to Begin Soon

Construction on the Gordon State College Student Services Center at the corner of College Drive and Spencer Street is expected to begin early July with an anticipated completion date of early summer 2019.

Site preparation is currently underway.

The single-story building is designed to centralize the admissions process for students.

"We want to make the admissions process as seamless as possible for students. To be able to offer admissions, financial aid and a component of the business office literally within steps of each other in a single building allows Gordon State College to do just that," said GSC President Kirk A. Nooks.

The 11,271 square-foot building will feature desktop and laptop computer stations, a waiting room for parents and a meeting room that can accommodate seating for 60 or used for events that require open space. Sliding glass partitions offer privacy while still allowing natural light and an open feel.

Also located in the Center will be the admissions office, financial aid office, and some business office personnel.

The University System of Georgia Board of Regents allocated funding for the $3 million project from its minor capital projects budget.

Parking will be available in the lot behind the building with access from both College Drive and Spencer Street.

The building's design is by JMA Architecture, Interiors, Planning, Perry, Ga. Benning Construction Company, Atlanta, is in charge of construction.
