Valdosta - South Georgia High School graduates and seniors applying for college now have a new campus to tour.  A ribbon cutting ceremony marked the official opening of the new Georgia Military College campus in Valdosta.

The classes were originally held at Moody Air Force Base but a large increase in the number of students prompted the Milledgeville based college to build new campus.  "We started getting more and more students and at the same point in time the military decided they didn't want more civilians to come on base," said college President Major General Peter Boylan.

Some students will continue to have classes at Moody Air Force Base.  College officials expect 1,000 students to attend the college this fall.
