Organization

East Georgia College, one of the fastest-growing two-year institutions in the University System of Georgia, is located in the friendly city of Swainsboro. Considered the access and opportunity hub of east-central Georgia, East Georgia College (EGC) is large enough to provide distinguished educational and cultural experiences for students and the surrounding communities. Still, it is small enough to provide an individualized personal touch assuring supportive, student-oriented quality service. East Georgia College excels in preparing graduates for successful educational opportunities as they continue their education at four-year colleges and universities throughout the state and nation.

East Georgia College offers educational value at an affordable cost with 23 associate of arts degrees designed for easy transfer to four-year institutions. EGC also offers cooperative associate of applied science degree programs, as well as an associate of science in nursing degree in cooperation with Darton College. The college also has an instructional site in Statesboro at 1525-A Fair Road. Small classes, low student-teacher ratios, and dedicated faculty and staff who are committed to student success are the foundations for academic excellence at East Georgia College.

East Georgia College offers online degrees in general studies, psychology, and sociology. Pursuing an online degree at EGC is resourceful: individualized learning and accessible faculty enable students to study and learn at their own comfortable and successful pace, which often translates into goals being reached in a shorter amount of time; and, often, when the cost of gas, parking, housing, and other fees associated with traditional campus-based education is eliminated, students can save money by earning an online degree. The flexibility, convenience, and affordability of an online degree through East Georgia College is a practical first step in completing a highly beneficial college degree.

Approximately 2,000 traditional and non-traditional students attend East Georgia College, which serves a rural, 18-county region with a predominately agricultural and manufacturing economy. Chartered in 1973, the campus spreads over 227 majestic pine-covered acres in Emanuel County and features a unique blend of nine modern buildings in a beautifully landscaped setting. Between classes, after business hours, and on weekends, students, faculty, and staff enjoy the scenic lake, series of nature trails, fitness center, gymnasium, lighted tennis courts, volleyball courts, and an 18-hole disc golf course. Emanuel County is just 16 miles from Interstate 16 and is conveniently located halfway between Savannah and Macon.

The college has a strong community service orientation, offering facilities for community meetings, industrial workshops, training sessions, regional Science Olympiad competitions, basketball, wrestling, and tennis tournaments, science camps, annual regional seminars, arts festivals, and area garden club flower shows. East Georgia College will host the Georgia state intercollegiate disc golf championship in the fall of 2008. The Intercollegiate Disc Golf Union of America sanctions the tournament. The Georgia Rural Economic Development Center, located on the EGC campus, provides unique public/private partnerships and development assistance to a surrounding 21-county region. In addition to a 42 million dollar economic impact, the importance of the college to the region is signified by the outstanding collaborative community relationships, and the 20,000+ area citizens served each year. The Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce recently presented East Georgia College with the "Large Business of the Year" award, further demonstrating its value to the community.

Students have a myriad of opportunities for extra-curricular pursuits through 35 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 and opportunities. The careful nurturing students receive at East Georgia College contributes to the success stories of our graduates, who can be found among the ranks of teachers, doctors, lawyers, dentists, judges, pharmacists, engineers, and business professionals.
