Mary Flannery O'Connor at Georgia State College for Women

Mary Flannery O'Connor attended Georgia State College for Women (now Georgia College & State University) during World War II under an accelerated three year program (1942 to 1945). O'Connor earned a B.A. in Social Science in 1945. She was editor of the literary magazine, the Corinthian, her senior year. She also served on the yearbook and newspapers staffs.

While O'Connor was a student at Georgia State College for Women, she was known for her humorous cartoons made from linoleum cuts. Her block print cartoons were published in the yearbook, the Spectrum; the newspaper, the Colonnade; and the literary magazine, the Corinthian. One yearbook describes her cartoons as "the bright spot of our existence."

O'Connor served on the Honor Committee in 1944 as a sophomore representative. The Honor Committee is described in the Spectrum: "The purpose of the Committee is to encourage the individual student to assume the complete responsibility for her own personal reputation and honor and that of her fellow classmen."

O'Connor graduated from Georgia State College for Women in 1945. She left Milledgeville in September 1945 to attend the State University of Iowa in Iowa City.
