Classes are underway at Toccoa Falls College and this year’s class is the largest in a few years.
School officials said that Toccoa Falls College welcomed the largest first-year class since 2007 when new students arrived to campus for orientation on Tuesday, August 20.
Toccoa Falls College 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 added a record 41 new students to the online program.
According to school officials, that brings the total fall online enrollment to over 100 students for the first time in school history.
TFC reports that the Class of 2017 represents 29 states and 17 countries such as South Korea, Germany, India, Japan, South Africa, and Mexico.
Toccoa Falls College Dean of Enrollment Dan Griffin said the school is pleased to welcome such a great class to the campus, calling them an extremely talented, academically minded and service oriented group of men and women.
TFC said it has now 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.
The total enrollment for the college has grown by 69 students this year to 875.
