Milledgeville is also the home of noted American author and alumna, Flannery O'Connor, and the college community enjoys many exciting literary arts programs at O'Connor's former home, Andalusia, now owned by the College.  Milledgeville is also located on the banks of beautiful Lake Sinclair and Lake Oconee, allowing faculty, staff, and students to take full advantage of the environmental and recreational benefits of being part of a lake community.
