Middle Georgia State (Macon State) is a very organized and structured college. They have great financial aid plan for people who struggle to find the money for college. Middle Georgia State also has awesome professors who do all they can to help you succeed!

Previously named Macon State College, Middle Georgia State College offers a wide variety of expanding majors and minors. The campus is large, but not overwhelmingly large, and is accompanied by beautiful scenery. Middle Georgia State College is a considerably affordable school with a rising graduation rate.
