Greetings from the President

Welcome and thank you for choosing the College of Coastal Georgia! We are thrilled that you are starting or continuing your studies as part of the Mariner family. Our mission is student success, and we are here to help you stay on track for graduation while having great experiences at the College. Here is our Catalog, a “go to” reference guide that will help you during your time with us. Please take time to look through our academic offerings and please bring any questions to your advisor.

 The faculty at the College are truly incredible. Not only are they experts in their fields with years of experience, but they are also passionate about sharing their knowledge with eager learners. Our small class sizes allow students to get to know their professors and take advantage of their knowledge and guidance. As you learn here, you will be challenged academically and personally to step out of your comfort zone—but you don’t have to do it alone. We are here to help you through tutoring, academic support services, and mental health services. We also offer a wide range of hands-on, interactive experiences through service-learning and internship opportunities that will prepare you for your future career. Look for “service-learning” throughout the Catalog to select service-learning courses.

Every step of the way we are keeping your future as a graduate in mind. Commencement is one of the College’s most meaningful celebrations, and it will be my honor to present your diploma when you cross the graduation stage. It’s important that on your journey to graduation, you remember to take advantage of all the resources and programs we offer—student clubs and organizations, undergraduate research, expansive library resources, intercollegiate and club sports, leadership opportunities, and career services. You matter to us and our commitment of “every student, every time” means that we put you FIRST! So, let’s start.

Go, Mariners!

Dr. Michelle Johnston

President
