“Nashville is a rapidly growing community with new opportunities for career advancement,” said South College President Steve South. “Nashville’s business boom is creating an even greater need for higher education opportunities. The city was a logical step forward to expand our high-quality educational programs to even more students in the state and help meet the need for a skilled workforce for new and growing businesses in Nashville.”
Nick South, who previously served as Executive Director of South College’s Asheville learning site in North Carolina, serves as Executive Director of the Nashville learning site.
“I am excited to welcome Nashville students to our campus,” Nick South said. “South College’s small class size and personalized attention is designed for student success in the classroom and in the workforce. Our Nashville learning site will offer the latest in technology and an encouraging, welcoming environment for motivated students to achieve their professional goals.”
