The flagship school in the University of Georgia system, UGA's Athens campus draws its energy from the vibrant town of Athens — and vice-versa.

Founded in 1785 as the first chartered state university, the University of Georgia has a long and distinguished history in the nation's intellectual, cultural and environmental heritage. Students at the College of Education, which was founded in 1908 and today is one of the largest and most diverse colleges of its kind in the country, experience life both on the picturesque campus and in the vibrant city of Athens.

Along with extensive research opportunities, outreach clinics and opportunities to interact with a range of students and educators, students at the College of Education's Athens campus can enjoy the rich culture of Athens, the city. Take in a show at the storied 40 Watt club or the majestic Georgia Theatre. Dine in one of the city's many restaurants, which are quickly putting Athens on the map for one of the top foodie cities in the country. Explore — or live in — one of the many historic neighborhoods near downtown.

Stop by the UGA Visitors Center before you begin your tour. Also, find out more information about Athens from the Convention and Visitors Bureau.
