Welcome Back, Students!

Welcome Back, Students!

In just a few short weeks, college students from all over the state of Georgia (and beyond!) will descend upon the campuses of Georgia College and Georgia Military College.

As a community, we want to make them feel welcomed, but how? Since I am a student of Georgia College, I thought I'd share some of the things that have made me feel welcomed home in the past.

Let us know about volunteer opportunities that have developed over the summer. If you're affiliated with an organization or a business that would benefit from student volunteers, let us know. Many students are looking for something to which they may devote their attention during a study break and in order to remain well-rounded. Some of my favorite experiences have come from the Life Enrichment Center here in Milledgeville, and the experiences there could be applied to a variety of majors!

Milledgeville and the Americans with Disabilities Act

On July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law by President George H.W.

As parents and students are often made aware, choosing the right college can be a daunting task because of the amount of thought and dedication that must be given to the decision.  For me as a student with a disability, choosing Georgia College was nearly a no-brainer. And here's why:

The people, in the Georgia College and Milledgeville communities, are fantastic. Coming from a relatively small suburb of Atlanta and growing up in what most would call a "bubble," I am quite accustomed to knowing everything about everyone with whom I associated. When I came to Milledgeville for the first time as a high school junior, I immediately understood that Milledgeville wasn't just Georgia's antebellum capitol, but it was also a community, a home, and a resting place.
