AAMI Bobcat for a Day

Georgia College is dedicated to preparing our students to thrive in a global and competitive world.  Our African-American Male Initiative program (MALE Connection – Mentoring African Americans for Leadership, Education, and Connection) is part of that mission, focusing on empowering Black males to become leaders on campus and beyond. Our upcoming AAMI Bobcat for a Day event will allow prospective students the opportunity to experience our mission first hand! During this visit, we will introduce students to the organizations and services especially committed to supporting and representing a diverse student body. Let us show you why Georgia College is different.
