Leslie Hafer has worked at Georgia Military College for nearly a decade. In the past few years, she's noticed a drastic change in enrollment."When I first started, we were just on Moody Air Force Base, to climb since January," says Hafer.
And Leslie isn't the only one whose noticed the increase in students. "When I first started, we only had eighteen people in the classes, but now they have expanded drastically,"says Carol Hart, GMC student.
Today marked the first day of fall classes at GMC. With students still registering throughout the week, the college has already experienced a 15% increase over last fall's total enrollment.
"This time last year we had 979 enrollments, but on the first day of classes this year, we're at 1300," says Hafer.
This overflowing in students has forced GMC officials to seek additional classroom space. "What we're currently have now is 12,000 square feet and we really need to increase that by about 3,000 more," says Hafer.
GMC students have a clear and simple explanation for the college's recent increase in enrollment.
"It's because its a great school to choose to go to and the professors care so much about your education," says Hart.
And although the lack of space is a conflict for the college, students and administration agree its a good problem to have.
