How do students ENGAGE at Georgia College?
Students are encouraged to contribute to the culture of engaged learning by participating in one or more Community-based Engaged Learning (C-bEL) experiences. C-bEL courses and co-curricular experiences provide students with the opportunity to apply classroom learning by collaborating with community partners.
Dr. Renee Fontenot, Professor of Marketing, routinely has her students work with local and regional businesses. Fontenot states, “Roughly three months after graduation, students start reaching back to share their interviewing and hiring experiences. A common theme is the edge the client-based projects gave them over others when applying for positions.” Approximately 40% of her Strategic Marketing capstone course work is focused on client-based projects, many of which are businesses and non-profits located in Milledgeville.
