Georgia Gwinnett College just keeps growing and growing


Georgia Gwinnett College is continuing its stellar growth with a five percent increase in enrollment this year. For the last several years, the college has led the state university system in enrollment growth, according to a news release.

The Lawrenceville college now has more than 12,000 students and has been recognized as one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the country.

More than 70 percent of students are from Gwinnett County, and a majority of the students commute, according to the release.
