ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  Albany Tech's newest attraction traveled to the Marine Corp Logistics Base Tuesday to encourage marines and their families to further their education.

It's a one-stop-shop. Albany Tech's new high tech mobile recruitment RV is equipped with laptops, important registration info, and work stations that allow recruitment teams to provide admissions and testing services on-site.

Marines, civilian Marines and their families had a chance to stop by today between 9:00AM and 1:00PM to check it out and hopefully sign up for classes.

"I really wish that more people would come out and take advantage of this opportunity and that's my goal here by having the unit come out because now the marines and their families can see how easy it is to get ready to go back to school," said MCLB Education Services Officer Dana Wallace.

40% of Marines on the Albany base are also taking classes. The next rolling ribbon cutting is Wednesday at Lee county's Tharpe building at 2:30.

 The mobile recruitment lab, which spans more than 30 feet in length, is designed for doorstep delivery of Albany Tech academic program information.

Over the course of the coming weeks and months, other "Rolling Ribbon Cutting" ceremonies will take place in every community that falls within the College's service delivery area - Baker, Calhoun, Clay, Lee, Randolph and Terrell counties.
