AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Georgia Southwestern University formally introduces its new interim President.
Dr. Charles Patterson and his wife Colleen met with GSW staff, donors and community leaders this evening at the Windsor Hotel in Americus.
Patterson said GSW is a school on the rise and he wants to increase the school's visibility.
"We need to have a more robust virtual presence. Students find us through the web. Students find us through social media. They find us through word of mouth. And so, we want to make sure that the things they're seeing are the things that help attract them," said Dr. Charles Patterson, GSW Interim.
Patterson also wants to increase student engagement on campus which he hopes will translate into more community engagement.
