Founded in 1906, Georgia Southwestern has been serving students for more than a century. Historic buildings, a lake, and an 18 hole golf course are nestled on 400 scenic wooded acres. Long, warm summers and short, mild winters are characteristic of the area's climate - making for pleasant living conditions and year-round recreation.
All classes are taught by experienced faculty - not teaching assistants. Our faculty consists of full-time professors. Faculty devote their time primarily to teaching and advising undergraduates. Our students-to-faculty ratio is 17 to 1.
Education does not end with graduation. Many of our students go onto pursue graduate or professional studies after receiving their degrees. As educated individuals with initiative and a desire to be lifelong learners, our graduates are accepted at the nation's best graduate institutions and secure careers in top companies worldwide.
Southwestern has a growing, diverse enrollment of more than 3,100 students from 81% of the counties in Georgia, 22 states, and 29 countries.
