Benedict College


 Benedict College is a college where each student’s experience in academic, residential and co-curricular activities is transformative and customer-service focused; at the same time, Benedict faculty and staff work in a collaborative, transparent environment where data-based decisions are also girded in compassion. Benedict College is a place of full-time learning from the classroom, to the playing field, to the residence hall and out into the community where the legacy of “BC” as inclusive, pioneering, and “family” is respected and cherished. 

Fort Valley State University


 Fort Valley State University is home to thousands of students discovering the genius within themselves and exploring their extraordinary potential for leadership under the guidance of highly-accomplished faculty.  Since 1895, the FVSU family has shared a love of invention and innovation, and embraced a culture where discovery is celebrated. No matter where you start in life, we believe that education is the surest way to make a difference in the world and achieve your dreams.
