At Georgia College & State University, 6,665 students are set to start classes today. That’s a 15 percent increase from last year’s enrollment.
“Young people these days are starting to figure out that, in this economy, they’re going to need a college degree if they want to keep up,” Georgia College and State University spokeswoman Judy Bailey said. “And our dorms are filled to capacity.”
