A family heritage spanning four generations has Georgia College to thank. From business to education to management information systems to nursing, the Strickland’s have experienced Georgia College successes first, second, third and fourth hand.
Thanks to six Georgia College staff and one alumnus, this holiday season has extended well into the new year for one Milledgeville soon-to-be homeowner and her children. The 1,000-square-foot Habitat Home—predicted to be completed by the end of January—serves as an example of what helping hands, sweat hours and a little love can do for a family.
The 33rd Annual International Dinner will be held Saturday, March 10, 2018. Guests will enjoy a wide selection of dishes from around the world and a full evening of performances, all prepared by students in the GC International Club. Held in the beautiful Magnolia Ballroom, the dinner begins at 7 p.m. Proceeds from the dinner support scholarships for international students. This gala event, which both celebrates and supports our international students, is proudly sponsored by the GC International Education Center, and we hope you will consider joining us this year!
Tickets will go on sale by early February. Space is limited, and this popular event always sells out quickly, so we encourage you to buy tickets early. If you would like to reserve a table of 8 in advance, or for more information, please contact the International Education Center or International Club Advisor and dinner coordinator, Jarris Lanham, at email@example.com.
