LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) - A new sports team is coming to Florida Gateway College and anyone looking for a job can get on-the-spot interviews at a job fair in this week’s Columbia County Report.

Men’s Cross Country Team

It’s been 45 years since Florida Gateway College had a men’s cross country team, but that is changing. FGC officials say interested high school seniors or current college students should inquire about the new team being introduced.

FGC officials say the women’s team is so successful they decided to expand the program to men.

“We love creating different types of opportunities for students to attend FGC and we think this program will bring students to our college that would not have normally applied or decided to attend,” said Anthony Cardenas, VP of student affairs & public information. “We’re excited about seeing those new students here on campus next year.”
