Darton holds State of the College address

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Darton State College leaders and faculty are gearing up for the start of the new school year.

Interim President Dr. Paul Jones held this year's "State of the College" Tuesday morning at Darton. His address focused on the progress made within the college and new challenges the faculty expects for the year.

Dr. Jones says one of their biggest challenges this year will be improving student enrollment. "What's most important is that we focus on more on student success and that those students who are joining this institution will be able to move or navigate though the campus without the barriers that often exist."

The interim President announced a 3% decline in enrollment during the spring semester. The first day of school for Darton students is Wednesday, August 13. Dr. Jones says so far, this semester's enrollment numbers seem strong.
