Friends, staff, faculty, and students are invited to celebrate the grand opening of the newest building on the Gordon State College campus, the Student Services Center.

A ribbon cutting celebration and tour of the Student Services Center is Thursday, June 20 at 9 a.m.

“This will truly be a one-stop shop that will allow our students to get enrolled, obtain financial aid, register for classes, and pay their bills in one space,” said Dr. John Head, vice president for enrollment management and student affairs. “This is an important step forward in our desire to simplify processes and improve customer service.”

The 11,271 square-foot building at the corner of College Drive and Spencer Street, features 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.

The Center will house admissions, financial aid, and personnel from the bursar’s office who will handle student accounts.

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

The building was designed by JMA Architecture, Interiors, Planning, Perry, Ga. Benning Construction Company, Atlanta, was in charge of construction.

Those attending the event are asked to park in the Melton Hall parking lot across the street.
