THE BICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
As we approach our bicentennial, we are reminded of our rich history and the many inspiring people who have passed through our historic columns. This occasion represents a significant milestone; despite epidemics, wars, and economic downturns, the institution has not only endured but has grown into a highly respected university. The foundation that was laid in 1822 continues to support an institution that has grown strong both in students and facilities.
But the best is yet to come! Our future success will be defined by our diligence in making Athens State a place where teaching is our mission and learning our goal, made possible through the continued support of our alumni, our friends, and the community. Our commitment to serve is stronger than ever. We invite you to join us in our journey, celebrating the past while preparing for the future. The foundation was laid in 1822, and Athens Forever begins today!
