Marietta Gets Dedicated Study Room
Anatomy and Physiology Students Now Can Study Models Outside Class
The Marietta campus breathed a collective sigh of satisfaction last year when quarters expanded to Norton Hall from a very cramped and overcrowded space that still houses some classes but no longer provides faculty and administrative offices. One necessary amenity was missing, however. Students in classes of Human Anatomy and Physiology, a prerequisite for the nursing program, needed a room where they could study the models of organs, muscles and bones they normally saw only in class. Both Cartersville and Floyd campuses grant access to students who need to use the anatomy models to study, and that benefit, now available in Marietta, means that Cobb County students don’t have to travel to Rome or Cartersville.
The study room was created as a direct result of student feedback. “It is a glowing example of meeting the learning needs of our growing student population,” said Kirk Nooks, campus dean on the Marietta campus. “As we continue to develop a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning, opportunities like this will become a reality.”
