Our Heritage & History

Advancing Georgia through an innovative Liberal Arts education since 1889

From its early days as a women’s educational center to becoming Georgia's designated public liberal arts university in 1996, our institution has consistently been a destination for students looking to make a difference in the world. More importantly, we teach every student how to learn; and we strive to instill a lifelong passion for learning that serves our students well regardless of the career paths they choose.
