CTC Experiences Enrollment Climb, Opens New Campus

MARIETTA, GA -- With another quarter underway, preliminary numbers show even more growth for Chattahoochee Technical College, Georgia's largest technical school.

Now with eight campuses, CTC has registered approximately 13,200 students for classes in over 100 certificate, diploma and associate degree programs.

Numbers are hovering just below the record enrollment of 13,470 that the school saw in Fall 2010. The current number is already 14% more than January 2010, when 11,365 students were enrolled in classes.

"The slow economy continues to push the surge in enrollment as new students seek to improve their job outlook," said CTC president Dr. Sanford Chandler. "It is an exciting time to be here and seeing these thousands of students taking steps to reach their goals in terms of education and career development."

THE PLACE WAS PACKED! Normally I take this as a good sign that the food must be incredible, the service impeccable and certainly worth any wait we could experience. Unfortunately, this was not the case.
