Registration Week set for March 30 – April 3

While we are working through the end of Spring semester, we are also looking forward to Fall 2020. Please review the information here and at gsw.edu/registration to be sure you're on track to register for your Fall courses.

Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony cancelled, alternatives to be announced soon.

Following guidance from the Governor’s Office, Georgia Department Public Health and CDC, all public events and large gatherings need to be cancelled (or rescheduled). The University System of Georgia has directed all 26 institutions to cancel Spring commencement ceremonies and consider alternatives. As we continue to navigate these unprecedented challenges surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are taking all possible steps to keep our GSW community healthy.

USG Chancellor Steve Wrigley states, "We don't make this decision lightly, nor do we want to diminish all our students have achieved. Our institutions are working on creative, alternative ways to celebrate their students' accomplishments, and I am grateful for the commitment and dedication our students have shown in the face of extraordinary times. They have worked hard and rightfully expect to celebrate and mark their graduation." 

“One of the most joyous moments for me as a President is watching our graduates walk across the stage,” said GSW President Neal Weaver, “and I hope to still be able to do that in the near future as we are beginning discussions on alternative ceremony options so that we can still celebrate the hard work and educational accomplishments of the GSW Class of 2020.”

Students set to graduate this Spring will still receive their degrees upon meeting academic standards. Graduating seniors will receive an email from Academic Affairs regarding diplomas and Herff Jones refunds.

Please stay tuned for announcements on alternate ceremony options for Spring 2020 graduates.

Students and donors attend annual Donor-Scholar Luncheon

With a record 175 attendees this year, Georgia Southwestern’s 12th Annual Donor-Scholar Luncheon gave students the opportunity to meet their donors who generously provide support for numerous GSW Foundation scholarships.

This year's student speakers included Emma Carter, a freshman nursing major from McDonough, Ga. Emma received three scholarships, including the Charles L. Mix Scholarship as a participant in the President Jimmy Carter Leadership Program, the Guaranteed Acceptance Program scholarship for nursing, and the Phil Jones/Citizens Bank Scholarship.

 James Griggs, a freshman business major from Americus, Ga., also spoke at the event. James received three scholarships this year as well, including two Kenneth McMillan Scholarships and the Roy Lee Smith Sheriff Youth Home Scholarship.

For the 2019-20 academic year, over 330 students received GSW Foundation scholarships, with 80 students receiving two or more. These scholarships totaled just under $1 million.

Marketing students visit Atlanta

On February 25, Dr. Suzanne Conner’s Consumer Behavior class (MKTG 4820) took a field trip to the Atlanta American Marketing Association’s Keynote Luncheon: Managing the Customer Experience with Home Depot and Intercontinental Hotel Group at Maggiano’s in Buckhead. At this gathering, students heard industry experts discuss their brands’ strategies for designing the customer experience from the vision of the ideal experience through measuring performance and continuous innovation. Before the luncheon students had an opportunity to network with marketing-industry leaders from the Atlanta area. Afterwards, the group toured Lenox Square and they were able to, among other things, take a test ride in a Tesla and speak to managers in stores like Fendi.

Shannon Griffin said of the experience, “Most importantly, I discovered how businesses and firms apply the concepts that I learn every day in class to real-world situations. I heard familiar words that I am exposed to in classes such as Principles of Marketing, Principles of Management, and Consumer Behavior.” Other participants had similar comments about the trip.

“As a professor, I am thankful for the opportunity provided by the HIPO grant, to take students to an event like this,” said Dr. Conner.
