SWGTC of Grady County Open House Set for March 20th
Southwest Georgia Technical College (SWGTC) of Grady County will host an Open House on Thursday, March 20th from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
“This Open House will serve as an opportunity for us to showcase our SWGTC of Grady County campus. Southwest Georgia Technical College is committed to serving as a local resource, and we are proud to provide Cairo’s citizens affordable and accessible higher education opportunities. We are grateful to be a part of the Cairo community and we will continue to show support to this region,” commented Dr. Craig Wentworth, SWGTC President.
The College invites the public to join them at this free event. Attendees will get the chance to explore the Cairo campus as SWGTC administrators will be on-hand to give tours throughout the event. They will also offer door prizes, give-a-ways, and refreshments.
“We hope to attract not only prospective students to this Open House, but also engaged community members who would like to know more about this valuable resource located right in ‘your own back yard!’ We want the public to stay informed about the many programs we offer on this campus, both credit and non-credit, and feel that they can come to us with other needs” added Wentworth.
Cairo campus faculty members will be available to “meet and greet” and to provide program-specific information. Additionally, financial aid and admissions staff will be on-hand to guide prospective students through the application process.
Also, SWGTC Foundation representatives will be present to share valuable information about the many scholarship opportunities available to SWGTC students.
Representatives from Albany State University (ASU) will be available to discuss their off-site program on SWGTC’s Cairo campus. This off-site program began in 2012 through an articulation agreement between SWGTC and ASU. Since this partnership began, ASU instructors have offered junior and senior level bachelor degree courses in social work, criminal justice, early childhood education and some upper-level math on SWGTC’s Cairo campus in the evenings, Monday through Thursday.
Southwest Georgia Technical College of Grady County is located at 1550 Highway 84 West, Cairo, Georgia. For more information on this Open House, please call SWGTC of Grady County at (229) 378-2901.
