ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One college recruitment program has just added technology that could help many south Georgians earn an education.

Albany Technical College has added 10 brand new laptops inside a new recruitment bus. Prospect students can take an assessment test which covers reading, writing, and math skills. They can also register online.

People who can't visit Albany Tech can watch a video of occupation labs offered on campus.

"I think it's great," said Dean of Admissions Lisa DeJesus. "Our schedules are balanced between work, family and volunteer opportunities. If we are able to bring those services to people who aren't able to come to campus, we will be accomplishing our mission."

That mission is to reach as many Georgians as they can in surrounding counties. To find out more about the mobile recruitment program feel free to contact Albany Tech's admission's office at 229-430-3520.
