Lanier Technical College has largest enrolled student body in 55-year history of the College!
Today’s first day of classes for Fall Semester 2019 sets a new enrollment record at Lanier Technical College! In the 55-year history of Lanier Tech, today’s morning classes set a new record of 4,613 students starting their academic and career journeys at the College. The new record enrollment figure will continue to increase throughout the day and evening as more students attend the College’s afternoon and evening classes.
Today’s new record exceeds the old record of 4,432 students reached in Fall Quarter 2010, during the height of the recession. Nearly 2,700 new students arrived on the College’s five campuses today and joined more than 1,900 returning students to set the new enrollment record.
Dr. Ray Perren, President of Lanier Technical College remarked about today’s record, “We are thrilled with our enrollment growth, and we are especially pleased that the record enrollment is across all of the College’s five campuses.
Today’s record setting enrollment is an indication of the great support that the College receives from all of the communities that we serve; community support that we greatly appreciate. Community support is instrumental in helping us get out the message of the great opportunities provided by technical education.
We are committed to being ‘Partners In Progress’ to assure the communities which we serve have the skilled workforce needed to assure job growth and economic development. Today’s record enrollment, particularly in this exceptionally strong economy, is a point of pride for each of the communities we serve.”
