Toccoa Falls College welcomed the largest first-year class since 2007 when new students arrived to campus for orientation on Tuesday, August 20.
TFC’s president, Robert M. Myers joined a group of faculty and staff volunteers to help the 276 members of the Class of 2017 move their belongings into the residence halls. Additionally, the college has also added a record 41 new students to the online program. This brings the total fall online enrollment to over 100 students for the first time in school history.
The Class of 2017 represents 29 states and 17 countries such as South Korea, Germany, India, Japan, South Africa, and Mexico and continues to be academically strong. Additionally, the entering class continues to demonstrate a passion to serve Christ and further his message throughout the world.
“We are pleased to welcome such a great class to our campus.” Dan Griffin, Dean of Enrollment stated. “This is an extremely talented group of men and women, who are academically prepared for college and passionate about serving our Creator.”
TFC has experienced its third straight year of enrollment gains, but the fall of 2013 serves as the 4th largest enrollment growth in the 106 year history of the college. Total enrollment for the college has grown by 69 students this year to 875. The growth in both residential and online enrollment has led to a great deal of excitement on campus already this fall.
