Despite epidemics, wars, and economic downturns, Athens State has not only endured but has grown into a highly respected university. Our commitment to serve our communities, as well as our students, is stronger than ever. Over the past two centuries, many have shared in the mission and vision of the institution to help in reaching such a milestone. These individuals collectively care about the same thing – our students and their future success.
Athens State University is grateful to the generous alumni, faculty, staff, parents, corporations, volunteers, and foundations who help us excel every day. Contributions of both time and money allow the University to provide an exceptional education to today’s learners while preparing for what lies ahead. Though every gift is as unique as its donor, each aims to provide opportunity and advance knowledge. This common goal is what unites the University community as one and positions Athens State as an indispensable leader in education. This special time in the University’s history would not be possible without donors and their loyal support.
