East Georgia State College, a fully accredited two-year college of the University System of Georgia, provides a wide range of credit and non-credit academic programs in an atmosphere contributing to intellectual and cultural growth. Located in Swainsboro, the College serves a eighteen county rural region that has an economic mix of agriculture and manufacturing. The 207-acre campus, opened in 1973, provides all of the intellectual and physical resources necessary to maintain a high quality general education opportunity. Although most students commute to the campus, the College extends its mission through the Statesboro Center and through the cooperative Associate of Applied Science programs with neighboring technical institutes. More than 1,900 traditional and non-traditional students attend the commuter college, which serves a rural, 18-county region with a predominately agricultural and manufacturing economy. Women are in the majority and the student body is diverse, with a 35% minority enrollment. While the campus is known as a commuter college, off-campus housing facilities for students are available. The campus itself spreads over 227 pine-covered acres in Emanuel County and features a unique blend of seven modern buildings in a pastoral setting. Between classes or on weekends, students, faculty and staff enjoy the scenic lake, a series of nature trails, lighted tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts and a soccer field. While the main campus is located in Swainsboro, the college has an off-campus site at Statesboro. East Georgia State College offers, at an affordable cost, 23 associate of arts degrees designed for transfer to four-year institutions. In addition, the college offers cooperative associate of applied science degree programs, as well as a certificate in information technology. Students have a myriad of opportunities for extra-curricular pursuits through the 25 campus organizations. Field trips, lectures, films, concerts, art shows, museums, and drama productions, combined with a comprehensive student activities program, enhance the total learning experience and prepare students for tomorrow's challenges. The college is a place where each student is appreciated and alumni are to be found among the ranks of teachers, doctors, lawyers, dentists, judges, pharmacists, engineers, business men and women who all began their careers at this educational magnet in southeast Georgia.
