Media Relations

University Communications writes all news releases pertaining to Georgia College and distributes them to the media through an online distribution service. We are able to immediately distribute releases locally, statewide, or across the nation.
If you are planning a major event, please remember to include a representative of University Communications in your planning sessions so that we may assist you with advance and day-of coverage of the event. To ensure that your event receives  the attention it deserves, it's good to give at least six (6) weeks notice prior to your scheduled campaign/event. 

In addition, the Media Relations staff:

  • Develops and maintains a relationship with the media, keeping in contact on a daily basis.
  • Pitches story ideas about GC and its faculty, staff and students.
  • Helps the media with its coverage of the university.
  • Aids the media in finding campus experts to be quoted on issues in the news.

How to get your news distributed to the media? 

Submit news items via email to Brittiny Johnson or call 478-445-1934. Include the name of the event, time, date, location and a brief description of the event and a number to call for more information. Hometown releases are automatically sent for graduation, president's and dean's list.
