English Jr. Army Education Center.

Gerald Beavers, executive director of the APSU Center @ Fort Campbell, says, “This is our fourth annual College Fair, and each has been more successful than the one before. Last year, more than 300 interested people stopped by to talk with us and pick up informational packets.

“The Fair is especially beneficial to civilians, who sometimes are afraid they might not fit in here, who think all classes are filled with men and women in fatigues. That's just not so. Our student population consists of active-duty military, military dependents, retirees and people with no military connection.”

According to Beavers, the Army Education Center is a complete and modern facility, and access to the fort has been expedited.
Beavers said, “Many of our students are civilians who have discovered they not only get the classes they want here, but they also enjoy the challenge and speed of eight-week terms. There are no Friday classes, and we offer a wide variety of day, night, weekend and online courses, so our schedule is most attractive to working adults.”

He encouraged anyone who might have an interest in beginning college classes this fall to attend the APSU Center @ Fort Campbell College Fair. “At the Austin Peay Center, we offer a variety of bachelor's degree programs and pre-professional technical programs,” Beavers said.
