Freshman Academy Visits GCSU


Freshman Academy students went on a tour of Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville.  They were able to meet current students and learn about the expectations of college.  Several students stated that having the opportunity to tour colleges early has motivated them to want to do better in school.  This tour was made possible due to the generosity of the Partners in Education grant “If I Can See It, I Can Be It,” which was awarded to the Freshman Academy counselor in the fall.
