Georgia College Was Once A Tiny School To Prepare Young Women For Industrial Careers

Today, Georgia College is a public liberal arts university enrolling around 7,000 students. However, with a history dating back to the 1800s, this public university wasn’t always bustling with students and was open to everyone. In fact, Georgia College was first chartered as Georgia Normal and Industrial College in 1889 and enrolled women who were looking for industrial careers or teaching positions.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
