Welcome to the Office of the President
It’s indeed a pleasure to extend my welcome to all prospective students, parents and friends who might be looking at our website to learn more about Middle Georgia State University.
Our university dates back to 1884 but was created anew in recent years—first as a state college and beginning in July 2015, as a state university. We are a regionally focused institution serving both traditional and non-traditional students as an exciting and unique unit of the University System of Georgia. With five locations across 150 miles in the center of the state, as well as numerous online learning opportunities, our university enjoys a strategic location with broad reach.
Our Eastman Campus is home to the School of Aviation, where we operate the only state-funded aviation school in Georgia. Our Cochran Campus serves residential and commuting students and is home to our NAIA four-year athletics program, Greek Life beginning in the Fall of 2015, and the excellent Georgia Academy of Arts, Mathematics, Engineering and Sciences—a residential dual-enrollment program for high-performing high school students.
The Macon Campus, which serves nearly half of our student population, is home to our administrative units and boasts proximity to varied experiential learning opportunities in the Macon metro area, a state-of-the-art conference center, as well as a recently opened multi-million dollar student recreation and wellness center. Our Dublin campus is adjacent to major regional healthcare employers, while our Warner Robins campus serves the area’s growing population and will soon add a Military and Veteran’s Education and Training Center, our planned Office of Graduate Studies, and a new STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) building.
As the state university with its heart in the song and soul of the South, we are excited to build on the proud history of Middle Georgia and innovate to create an even brighter future for the region. Whether you are a prospective student or someone who is just curious about what this new institution is all about, please explore this website to learn more about the wide array of bachelor’s and associate’s degrees we offer, our vibrant student life and our great sports programs. Better yet, come see us at any of our campuses. We know you’ll find staff and faculty who are devoted to helping students achieve their educational goals so they can improve their own lives, as well as the lives of their family members and the communities where they live.
