From the article:
"Several schools, from large state flagship universities to small private colleges, have reported record summer enrollment even as the country grapples with a recession and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Officials at Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC) outside Atlanta reported a 14% increase in its summer enrollment in online classes, reaching the highest summer numbers in the school’s 15-year history.

“In times of economic trouble, people turn to higher education as a path to a brighter future,” President Jann Joseph said in a statement. “And with GGC’s affordability, quality of instruction and a convenient location to such a large population, we know that many people will turn to us.” "
