Cheering on sports teams
doesn’t just prepare you for your first job out of college; it also trains your mind to think critically and creatively to keep pace with our ever-changing global economy. While some students only focus on the day after graduation, our students draw on their education over a lifetime. In fact, most employers are less interested in specialized job skills than teamwork, analytical thinking, and communication skills—all part of the liberal arts culture.
Milledgeville is always moving forward, but with an eye to its storied past, which includes gorgeous historic homes and buildings. Downtown shops and restaurants adjoin campus, and nearby Lake Sinclair and the Oconee River offer everything from fishing to jet skiing.
Road trip from your house, to Milledgeville!
Our Main Campus is home to modern academic facilities, suite-style residence halls, and endless Frisbee games. At West Campus, you’ll find athletic facilities and student housing that feels like luxury apartments (yes, there’s a pool!). And East Campus at Lake Laurel is home to our Outdoor Education Center—83 acres of forest, lake, and walking trails.
Don’t be surprised when our core curriculum connects to your major in unexpected ways (does marketing have roots in folklore?). Or when it sparks an academic passion that you otherwise would never have explored.
Georgia College students have virtually
to develop their interests—and gain crucial practical experience that prepares them for life after graduation.
Some minds need an even greater challenge. The Honors Program provides intellectually talented students with a rewarding academic experience that allows them to stretch their minds and meet their educational goals. We provide small sections of core classes, lunch and dinner seminars, book discussions, and other academic and cultural events.
The Georgia Education Mentorship Program matches students with leaders in business, education, politics, healthcare, law, and industry. These executives serve as mentors, providing opportunities for students to learn the tenets of effective leadership that benefit the professional world and the community.
Whether you tackle a new culture for a month, a summer, or a semester, study abroad can change your world.
There’s more to college than studying. We want you to get involved in campus life: Join a club, volunteer, try something new. That’s what college
Georgia College alumni know the importance of practical experience. No matter the location, they’ve brought home essential skills, knowledge, and connections that will serve them well in their future careers.

At some schools, you cheer from the sidelines. Here you take home titles. Nine of our 10 teams took their games to NCAA Division II post-season play last year.
The best way to find out if Georgia College is the perfect fit for you is to
Suit up for a game of intramural flag football. Write for our nationally ranked student newspaper, The Colonnade. Rock out in the Battle of the Bands. Go international with the First Friday Foreign Film series. You don’t have to choose just one thing—you can practically do it all. If you want to host a radio show, audition for the musical, play soccer, and support your favorite cause, you can.
Campus commitment to others has landed us on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. How do we do it? Two words: Give Center. The Give Center connects students to all kinds of service opportunities, including Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Hands on Milledgeville, World Vision, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and Children’s Miracle Network. Learn how you might give at gcsu.edu/give.
