University of Georgia is located in Athens-Clarke County, with a population of
over 100,000. Georgia’s Classic City is a prospering community that reflects
the charm of the Old South while growing in culture and industry (www.visitathensga.com). Athens is just over an hour away from the north Georgia
mountains and the metropolitan area of Atlanta, and just over 5 hours away from
the Atlantic coast.
In 1785, Georgia became the first state to grant a charter for a
state-supported university. In 1801 the first students came to the newly formed
frontier town of Athens. The University of Georgia has grown into an
institution with 16 schools and colleges and more than 2,889 faculty members
and 34,519 students.
