Location Albany State College is located 32 miles south of Plains, Georgia, home of former President Carter, and 145 miles from the metropolitan city of Atlanta. Albany is a progressive city of more than 100,000 people; it offers education, historical quality and a safe community.
History Albany State College is a four-year state-supported, coed, liberal arts college that was founded in 1903 as Albany Bible and Manual Training Institute. The mission was to train black teachers to teach basic skills and to train black students in the trades and industries, with special emphasis on domestic science and art. The school was initially supported by religious and private organizations. In 1917, when the school became a two-year, state-supported institution, the name changed to Georgia Normal and Agricultural College. In 1932, the institution became part of the University System of Georgia, and in 1943, the College was granted four-year status, assuming its present name, Albany State College. As the College continued to grow, the mission changed to meet present-day educational needs. Teaching, research, and community service were adopted into the mission of the College. A graduate program was established in 1972 through other colleges. In 1981, the College began to offer a graduate program that was delivered solely by the faculty and staff of Albany State. Expansion included a new criminal justice building, a modern student union, and a library completed in 1994. The 128-acre campus has both traditional and modern buildings. The growth on the campus came as part of a $153 million project with most of the funding coming from FEMA after a 1994 flooding of the adjacent Flint River left most of the campus under water.
