GHC proudly serves Northwest Georgia with five convenient locations. The Marietta location was opened in 2005. This location became GHC’s third site, opening for classes on the campus of Southern Polytechnic State University (now Kennesaw State University.) It provides students with a full range of resources and activities. Since GHC’s Marietta site is located on the Kennesaw campus, students who attend have access to KSU dorms and can participate in GHC and KSU intramurals, student organizations, and collegiate sporting events.
The Marietta location is in Cobb County, near downtown Marietta, which is one of Atlanta’s largest suburbs and is home to the Marietta Museum of History, an historic town square with weekly events and a farmers’ market, and the Earl Smith Strand Theatre that plays host to concerts, musicals, and theatrical productions, and nods to its cinematic beginnings by screening classic films with live organ accompaniment.

GHC’s locations serve thousands of students every year. Compared to other colleges, you won’t find a better education with a better value anywhere. Even at half the cost of most colleges and universities nationwide, GHC offers several areas of study, including associate, bachelor’s, and online degree options.
