For many students, finding the right college is one of the most important milestones in their lives. Georgia Gwinnett College will open its doors to high school students and their families on Sat., Oct. 13 and again on Sat., Oct. 20 for Open House, so students can learn more about GGC to see if it is the right college for them.

"Whether a student has already decided to go to college or has just begun to think about the possibility, visiting college campuses gives students the opportunity to explore all their options," says Sha-Ron Jones, GGC’s director of recruitment. "GGC’s Open House is designed to help students decide if the College is a good fit for them."

While on campus, students can learn about the college experience first-hand through campus tours and informational sessions on topics ranging from financial aid to student clubs to academic majors. GGC President Daniel J. Kaufman will welcome visitors to campus and discuss what they can expect at the "Campus of Tomorrow." The day will end with a lunch for GGC faculty and students, free to Open House visitors.

"It’s critical for prospective students to talk with current students and faculty to see what college life is like," says Jones. "There’s a close sense of community here."

GGC’s Open House events in April and June of 2007 brought more than 400 prospective students and their families to campus. The fall Open House will be held from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. It is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, visit the GGC Web site at http://www.ggc.usg.edu/OpenHouse. All members of the media are welcome to attend.
