Wraps up 17th Year

Economic Footprint Grows
College of Coastal Georgia's economic impact on Glynn
County is continuing to grow.
Even when it was just a two-year institution, the college yielded an
economic impact of $74.4 million during fiscal year 2008-2009.
College officials expect that number to be higher this time next year
now that the college has four-year status.
"Certainly each step we add is going to mean the impact is
greater," said Valerie Hepburn, president of College of Coastal
Georgia. "(Nearly $75 million) is huge for this community."
It's Picture Day
It's not too early to start thinking about what you will wear for
your 2010-2011 staff photo. The Advancement Office will be taking new
staff photos for all faculty and staff in August.
At Launch on August 11, a studio will be set up in the Conference Center
for a quick photo opportunity. Plan on stopping in prior to Launch or
set up a time with the Advancement Office later in the month.
In a push to get more students registered earlier for their first
year at College of Coastal Georgia, college officials are spending
this week and next highlighting what incoming students need to know
for fall semester.
New student orientation for nursing and health sciences majors was
held Wednesday, with more than 45 incoming students and parents
