About 150 Gwinnett middle school and high school students will visit Georgia Gwinnett College’s “Campus of Tomorrow” on Thursday, May 1 from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. as part of the College Pipeline program, spearheaded by Junior Achievement of Georgia.

“The event is part of GGC’s continuing effort to partner with Gwinnett County schools to help students find out about the quality post-secondary education options available to them in their own back yards,” says Cathy Moore, GGC’s acting executive director of enrollment management and dean of the School of Education.

Hispanic and first-generation students from Trickum Middle School, Norcross High School, and Central Gwinnett High School will tour GGC’s campus and hear from GGC students, faculty, and President Daniel J. Kaufman.

“We will address why going to college is important, how you go about getting a job after college, and things like admissions and financial aid,” says Moore. “We want to show these young people that we are committed to helping students, interacting with them, and letting them know that we are interested in their lives.”

Staff and volunteers from Junior Achievement of Georgia will cover topics such as: connecting to the workplace, communicating effectively, presenting yourself, communicating your value, and applying your skills.

“We are excited about this opportunity and the lasting impact it will have on the students,” says Moore.
