Savannah Tech at record enrollment

SAVANNAH — Record numbers of students are packing classrooms, hallways and parking lots at Savannah Technical College for the fall quarter.
Early numbers show that 5,140 students are enrolled, marking a 12 percent increase from last year at this time when enrollment was 4,585 and a 34 percent increase from the summer quarter.
“It’s very early in the process and our final numbers will change,” said Savannah Tech President Dr. Kathy S. Love, “but we know that we will set a new record.”
The college has shown steady enrollment growth during the past decade, but recent quarters have shown significant growth.
“Certainly the economy has something to do with it,” Love said. “People reassess their career paths and often turn to technical education when times are tough. This, in addition to new and more flexible program scheduling, has lead to this phenomenal growth.”
Savannah Technical College serves Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties. It has a campus on Airport Road in Hinesville.
