ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  It's back to school for Albany State University's Faculty and Staff.  

Monday, they began three days of conferences for the entire staff. The keynote speaker was a former executive director of the National Institutes of Health.

School officials are bracing for additional students. Fall enrollment is expected to exceed five-thousand, meaning larger classes for faculty. 

"We're definitely faced with the challenge of where we going to put them, where are we going to put these classes, but we're being very creative and we're using our buildings to the utmost of their capabilities," said ASU College of Arts and Humanities Dean Dr. Leroy Bynum Jr.

ASU officials say they won't overcrowd classes but will have to be creative with scheduling.    

Workers will get a chance to talk with Albany's Legislative delegation about budget cuts to higher education on Tuesday.
