The University’s ninth Florida campus will provide in-person support, help ensure post-graduation success for adult learners
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Last week, Strayer University hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to announce the grand opening of its new campus in Tallahassee, Fla. The new campus will be the University’s ninth campus in the state and will provide programs that offer working adults flexible and affordable higher education options. Spring classes will begin on April 6.
Located at 699 W. Gaines St., the Tallahassee campus is in a centralized location, making it conveniently accessible for busy adults. The campus’s hybrid model will provide students with the space and opportunity to work with Strayer’s student services coaches, meet one-on-one with faculty and staff, take on-ground courses, and network with peers.
“The new campus in Tallahassee will offer our students the best of online education and in-person support. Students can now access programs specifically designed to ensure their success in the workforce following graduation, including resume building workshops and financial planning,” said Dr. Michael Plater, President Emeritus of Strayer University. “We are honored to expand our education opportunities in Florida and support Strayer students in the city of Tallahassee.”
While nearly 95% of Strayer students take some or all classes online, the University found its students who live near a campus tend to complete their courses and continue into their next terms at higher rates than students who do not live near a campus.
Over the past two years, Strayer University has launched hybrid campuses across eleven states to give students better access to in-person support. Strayer University has more than 75 campuses and enrolls more than 50,000 students nationwide.
Strayer University offers associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, with a range of courses including criminal justice, business administration, education, information technology, and more.
