GMC welcomes newest junior college cadets

MILLEDGEVILLE — Georgia Military College will welcome the newest members of the 135th Corps of Cadets during the annual event called Super Wednesday.

The first-time junior college cadets will begin processing in the mini-gym of Cordell Events Center where they will be introduced to representatives of Admissions, Military Science and Academic Support.

While in the mini-gym, the Office of Student Activities, which coordinates and sponsors the event, will showcase campus offerings to include intramural activities, special events, and various campus organizations and clubs. Local banking institutions, businesses and organizations, to include faith-based groups will be represented in Cordell Events Center to welcome the families to the area and offer handouts, gifts, invitations, and information about their services.

After meeting with officials from Medical Services and the Commandant of Cadets, the students will travel to various building on campus to include Parham Hall and Peter Boylan Hall. A visit to the GMC Bookstore is where they will receive their initial issue known as the “Ditty Bag.”

Once the in-processing steps are completed, the women and men are welcomed into the battalion, receive their room assignment and a GMC ID Card in Baugh Barracks, and by that evening, the plebe-period officially begins.

For additional information call Celes Mason in the Office of Student Activities at Georgia Military College at 478-387-4718.
