The University Career Center (located in Lanier Hall) provides placement assistance to students and graduates who are seeking employment through on-campus interviewing programs, current listings of job notices, and a variety of employment resources like the College Placement Council Annuals. While the office does not function as an employment agency, the staff seeks to assist students in identifying potential employers, developing resumes, and preparing for job interviews.
In addition, the University Career Center hosts a number of Career Days each academic year which enable students to meet with college recruiters from business, industry, and government agencies to gather information and develop job prospects.
The University Career Center also offers education majors an opportunity to develop and maintain a credentials file of reference letters, transcripts, and other career related materials that would be sent at the student's request to prospective employers. All students participating in interviews scheduled during Teacher Placement Day must have a completed credentials file in The University Career Center. Additionally, a resume resource service exists for student use. Students are strongly encouraged to become familiar with placement resources and to establish their credentials files at the beginning of their senior year.
Students who are unsure of their career direction may wish to visit the Counseling Services office for assistance with choosing a major or a career. A variety of career assessment instruments and literature are available with assistance from the counseling staff.
The Georgia College Department of Public Safety wants to get to know you as friends, and we encourage you to help us by learning and abiding by established university regulations, municipal, and state laws. The Department of Public Safety, in turn, pledges to perform law enforcement duties and various services consistently and effectively. By working together, we can enjoy a safe and successful year.
The Public Safety office is located in Miller Hall at 300 N. Wayne Street and is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The department employs 16 trained officers who are certified by the Peace Officers Standards and Training Council of Georgia. This is the same certification that any city police officer or county deputy sheriff receives before they can be certified as law enforcement officers in Georgia. The sworn officers and communications staff are proud to serve the Georgia College community.
As Georgia College officers, we enforce the state laws as well as local ordinances. We issue citations, make arrests, and work vehicle accidents. Some of our other duties include the locking and unlocking of campus buildings, assisting motorists, and patrolling the campus on foot, bicycle or in marked patrol vehicles.
Please feel free to stop by Miller Hall to learn more about the Public Safety operations, or call the office and speak to an officer or one of the staff. Whether you are representing yourself or a group, we encourage you to let us know how the Georgia College Police Department can best serve you.
