Message from the President
Welcome to South Georgia State College!
We are proud to be a member institution of the University System of Georgia, with campuses in Douglas and Waycross as well as instructional sites in Valdosta and Americus. Our dedicated team of administration, faculty and staff share a common goal of fostering student success.
South Georgia State College offers an affordable, high quality education in a warm, family-like environment. We’re small enough that every student counts.…After all, faculty members know students by name, and staff support their academic goals with tutoring services near classes. All of this leads to SGSC being a great first stop on the way to the profession of your choice.
We know the college experience encompasses so much more. When not engaged in your studies, we encourage you to get involved and meet new friends in over 20 student organizations or at one of our cultural programs. Or cheer for your favorite Hawks sports teams with a rich heritage of state and national winners. You may also enjoy living on campus in our contemporary residence halls and taking advantage of our many social and recreational spaces.
I hope you will explore this website to learn more about the array of associate degrees we offer that transfer seamlessly to four-year Institutions and our new bachelor’s degree in nursing (RN-BSN). You’ll also discover many ways to enhance your student experience.
Better yet, come visit us and see why South Georgia State College is the place to begin your academic journey. We know you will feel at home…because you matter here.
Virginia M. Carson, Ph.D.
