Georgia Highlands College marks its 50th anniversary in 2020. As part of the celebration, the college’s library has made it possible to view historic college memorabilia from any computer or smart device through creation of a digital archive, now available at www.50years.highlands.edu.
Danielle Griesemer, Archives Assistant, attests, “These items really showcase what type of memorabilia was expected to come from a college back then to now. Many of our items actually come from former students either through a donation or on loan.”
The school now known as GHC opened in 1970 as Floyd Junior College.
