Students and parents are encouraged to visit us for Orientation Day and begin the journey towards academic success.

Welcome to Middle Georgia State University (MGA)


New Student Orientation (NSO) is an open house for both students and parents to explore our campuses and connect with fellow new Knights. Our faculty and staff are passionate about helping you during this transition as a new college student and will reveal the resources available to help you all the way to graduation day. Sessions are available for parents and family during orientation that focuses on the value that family offers students during this transition and the resources MGA provides as a support system for parents and students.
