GGC Day at the capitol launches 10th anniversary celebration | Gwinnett Daily Post

Gov. Sonny Perdue called it a “model for our university system” and a celebration in August, 2006 featured a ribbon-cutting, speeches from dignitaries and 107 students.

A fact Georgia Gwinnett College officials still boast was also repeated then: GGC is the state university system’s first new four-year college in 100 years. While the college experienced crowded classrooms in its early days, and in recent years a parking transition that irritated some students, it now counts about 10,800 students. Within two years, GGC plans to cap its enrollment at 13,000.

The school is the ninth-largest and fastest-growing institution in the state.

The school celebrated its achievements and growth on Thursday during an anniversary event under the Gold Dome. Senate President Pro Tem David Shafer, R-Duluth, and members of the Gwinnett Senate delegation, and Representative Buzz Brockway, R-Lawrenceville, along with the Gwinnett House delegation presented resolutions honoring Georgia Gwinnett College to GGC President Stas Preczewski.
