Orientation 2016

Georgia College welcomes our newest Bobcats for orientation. Meet some of our new students.

Georgia College’s School of Nursing received a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration (HRSA) Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship (AENT) grant. Totaling nearly $350,000, the grant funds the tuition, fees, books, other expenses and gives a stipend for all the students in the Master of Nursing in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program.

Math has always come naturally for Larrentis Thomas. For his hard work in his major, Thomas was selected to receive a $10,000 scholarship to finance his graduate degree.

Student Health Services is offering their GCSYou and Alcohol Freshman Seminar program again this year. This program lasts the entire 50 minutes of the seminar and discusses the signs and symptoms of alcohol poisoning, how to help someone in need and low-risk alcohol choices our students can make. The program will be interactive and engaging.

If you would like to have Student Health Services come to your seminar, please contact Rachel Pope at rachel.pope@gcsu.edu and note the dates and times your seminar meets. We have many options available for September and October. Our preference would be to have this educational seminar before Oct. 31. Thank you, and we look forward to presenting in your classes soon.

Many USG institutions have been hit with a ransomware phishing campaign in the last few days which have been delivered to thousands. The attack profile has consisted of a phishing message that used a spoofed/forged “from” field and appeared to come from a campus copier/printer. In our case, it would appear to come from copier@gcsu.edu.

The message carries a .docm attachment. Do not open the attachment. The attachment is the ransomware payload, which in this instance installs a remote access trojan.

This is an active attack. Communication efforts are underway to universities across the nation through REN-ISAC and there are many other confirmed instances of this throughout the county.

Remember the following things:

  • Always keep all of your software up to date with the latest patches; computer and phone.
  • Never click on links in emails or text messages and never open an attachment unless you are certain it's legitimate.

Georgia College Volleyball and head coach Gretchen Krumdieck released the 2016 schedule Tuesday, highlighted by hosting the 2016 Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Tournament.

The Bobcats have 10 home matches during the regular season, as they look to battle the top teams in the southeast.

"We are all very excited to get back on the court for matches in September," said Krumdieck. "This is a challenging schedule, with more matches than we've ever played. I think this team is ready for it and will rise to the challenge."

The 2016 campaign starts on the road, traveling to Florida Tech for a tournament. The Bobcats will face Puerto-Rico Mayagues and the host Panthers on opening day Sept. 2. After wrapping up the classic the next day against Wilmington University, the Bobcats open the home schedule against Emmanuel College Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m.

PBC play opens up on the road Sept. 16, with the Bobcats traveling to the University of Montevallo. The home PBC lid-lifter is Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. against Lander University.

After the regular season wraps up Nov. 12 at Lander, the Bobcats will host an eight-team bracket as the PBC Tournament visits the Centennial Center for the first time. Quarterfinals are Friday, Nov. 18, with the title game coming Nov. 20.  

The 2015 season was a breakthrough one for the 12-16 GC Volleyball team, making a trip to the PBC Tournament for the first time in program history in a season of firsts for Bobcat volleyball. Georgia College eclipsed the 10-win plateau for the first time, picked up its first road PBC win and got their first PBC season series sweep in a banner year. The Bobcats also landed seven on the PBC All-Academic Team, and Taylor Svehla (Cumming) was the PBC Co-Freshman of the Year.
