ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Tough economic times mean tougher decisions for students planning to go to college.
How will they pay for it? Plus what major should they choose to ensure they can get a good job when they graduate?
Georgia Southern University was looking for qualified students in Albany on Wednesday hoping they have the answers both students and parents are asking.
Some of the GSU admissions staff talked to potential students about GSU, career options, and financing their education.
"We're going to talk a lot about our scholarship opportunities, we have scholarship deadlines coming up soon for students who're interested in academic or leadership scholarships. A lot of potential for students to earn scholarship money towards their education as well as their housing," said Amy Smith, GSU Admissions Office.
