June Brings a Graduation Celebration and a Grand Opening to Atlanta

June 02, 2010

June_Brings_Graduation This month marks a milestone for Saint Leo University in Atlanta, with two good-news events for students at different stages of their educational journeys.

Most notably, the Atlanta Commencement for nearly 300 students who have earned associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degrees will be held Saturday at noon at the Atlanta Civic Center. Frances Davis, Ph.D., the chief human resource officer of Gwinnett County Public Schools, will deliver the commencement address.

Also this week, faculty and administrators have been showing off Saint Leo’s newest local teaching facility, in suburban Marietta. This recently opened office provides working adult students with a classroom location in Cobb County, on Atlanta’s northwest perimeter. The open house was held Wednesday, June 2, at the new teaching and advising office, in the American Business Center, 1395 South Marietta Parkway, Building 300, Suite 104. The location, shown in the photo, is easily accessible from Interstate 75.

The facility has four classrooms, a reception area, and three offices for the director, faculty, and academic advisor to meet with students. Parking is free.

The university is operating the Marietta center as an extension of Saint Leo’s longtime office at Fort McPherson, home to the U.S. Army Forces Command. Saint Leo also continues to operate its first suburban Atlanta location, in Duluth, off Interstate 85 in Gwinnett County.

The bachelor’s degree programs available at the Marietta office are the same ones available in Duluth. They include: business administration with a specialization in either management or technology management; human resources administration; health care management; computer information systems; religion; and sociology.

The Marietta location will be staffed by Katherine MacDonald, Dr. George Zagursky, and Arthur King. For more information, call (770) 426-2625 or (770) 425-5031.
