Vol State in the News

The Tennessee Reconnect free tuition for adult students proposal by the Governor has attracted quite a bit of media attention. Channel 4 came to the Gallatin campus to do interviews for this story  and the Tennessean ran a front page story  on Sunday with our students and staff.

The Tennessean also did a wonderful side-bar video with adult student Gaynell Buffinet Payne and her son...it focuses on the challenges adult students face, aside from just money. Check it out here.

International students have been watching the situation with travel visas and the President Trump executive order restricting travelers from certain countries. No Vol State students have been impacted by the order, as far as we know. Recently Dr. Faulkner reiterated the college support for international students and their studies in this Gallatin News Examiner story.
