SAVANNAH — Official enrollment numbers at Savannah Technical College for the 2010 winter quarter show an increase of 18.8 percent in total credit enrollment from the same quarter last year, marking the second consecutive quarter that enrollment has topped 5,000 and the largest-ever enrollment for winter quarter.
Currently, 5,347 students are enrolled at Savannah Technical College, according to a report issued by the Technical College System of Georgia. This includes all campus locations.  
“Expanding our programs and offering flexible scheduling have allowed us to serve more students than ever before,” Savannah Tech President Dr. Kathy S. Love said. “And when our new classroom building opens, we’ll be adding more classrooms and lab spaces to serve our students.”
This year, Savannah Tech began offering commercial truck driving, automotive technology and cosmetology in Liberty County; added evening culinary and cosmetology programs in Savannah, and expanded cosmetology and welding in Effingham County.
A new barbering program will begin in spring and more programs will be offered online this summer. The college will open Academic Commons, a three-story classroom building on the Savannah campus, later this year.
