GNB Update

Here's what's happening for Monday on GNB...

Four in 10 Georgia public college students don't graduate. That's according to the latest stats from the University System of Georgia. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that around 40 percent at Clayton State University graduated within six years dating back to 2003, while the six-year rate at fellow metro Atlanta institution Southern Polytechnic State University stood at about 43 percent. Board of Regents vice chairman Willis Potts told the AJC that those numbers were "not acceptable".

350 graduates take the next step in their careers. The Brunswick News reports that the College of Coastal Georgia held its 45th commencement ceremony over the weekend. University System of Georgia Regent Jim Bishop says that 3,500 students are expected to enroll at CCG for the new academic year.

A milestone moment for another public university. reports that Columbus State University will hold its 100th commencement ceremony tonight (Monday). CSU had its first graduating class 50 years ago next month.
