MACON, Georgia (41NBC/ WMGT) – The doors are officially open to a new university in Macon. Strayer University’s campus is in downtown on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Andrea Backman, Chief Academic Officer of Strayer University says the 125-year-old university opened a Macon campus because of the economic growth in the area. Strayer’s most popular programs focus on business and IT, but it has many offerings.
“We know that there are people here who have other things going on in their lives– work, jobs, community events, and we help people who also want to do education,” Backman said.
Strayer has a program called Graduation Fund. If students pay to take three courses, the fourth one is free.
Backman says Strayer is enrolling now for summer courses. If you can’t get to the classroom, she says Strayer offers online classes, too.
