ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Some of the fastest growing two-year colleges in the country are here in south Georgia.

Community College Week compiled a list which includes several colleges in our state. That publication just released figures based on 2009 enrollment.

Valdosta Technical College, now known as Wiregrass Tech, tops the list of schools with 2,200 to 5,000 students. Albany Tech is number eight.

Darton College is number 38 among schools with 5,000 to 10,000 students.

"It's great news," said Darton College Communications Director, Krista Robitz. "We're ecstatic. "We have grown the past 10 years more than 119% so we're not surprised at all. We're absolutely honored."

Darton is about to break ground on new dorms to accommodate the influx of students.
