History of Middle Georgia State
In early 2012, the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents recommended the consolidation of Macon State College, which was founded in 1968 in Macon Ga., and Middle Georgia College, which was founded in 1884 in Cochran, Ga. The consolidation became official on January 8, 2013, creating Middle Georgia State College, a baccalaureate-granting institution with an enrollment of nearly 9,000 students. The new institution has a far reach into the Middle Georgia region and beyond with campuses in Macon, Cochran, Dublin, Eastman and Warner Robins. Middle Georgia State is expected to become a university within a few years.
