By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Valdosta State University is taking the school on the road and making connections along the way.

University leaders are on a 12-city Connections tour across the state. They stopped in Albany Tuesday night. The tour allows alumni to reconnect with old friends and school leaders. It also gives potential students a chance to see what VSU has to offer.

New school President Patrick Schloss is also having a good time meeting folks.

"For me, I get to see the genuine aspirations of parents for their loved ones. I get a chance to tell the story of a great university that is really a hub of the region that includes such great places like Albany and others," said Schloss.

More than 1,100 people from Dougherty and Lee Counties are VSU alumni. The connection tour wraps up in Brunswick on April 29th.
