Savannah Tech ranked 22nd in study

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - According to a report from Community College Week magazine, Savannah Technical College is ranked 22nd for growth among the nations two-year colleges serving between 5,000 - 9,999 students. The report compared enrollment data from Fall 2008 to Fall 2009. Savannah Tech's enrollment increased 20% during that peroid.

"Our enrollment growth has been steady and very strong for the past few years," said College President Kathy S. Love in a news release. "Much of it has to do with current economic conditions, but I believe that people truly understand the tremendous value technical education offers. Especially in our community where I hear every day from students as well as from business and civic leaders how important Savannah Technical College is to life in Coastal Georgia."

This was the second time Savannah Tech was recognized by Community College Week magazine. In December 2002, Savannah Tech was ranked the third fastest growing two-year college in the country serving between 2,500 and 4,999 students.

Fourteen colleges within the Technical College System of Georgia were also ranked in the nation's fastest growing institutions for their size.
