Fort Valley State University
Founded more than 100 years ago, Fort Valley State University embraces a history that weaves together African-American culture, a commitment to personal and intellectual growth and a deep sense of community. What students of every era have found here is unequaled leadership across a wide scope of programs. Our communiversity efforts bridge the gap between town and gown. The university regularly brings the local community onto campus for special events that showcase our students’ achievements. With an enrollment beyond 3,000, our school is the perfect size for building lifelong ties that go beyond race and background; ties that are based on a shared love of learning and a thirst for personal growth. FVSU’s stately campus is the ideal environment for one-on-one learning, but we also encourage connections to the world around us, through close relationship with local communities and our study abroad programs that trace ancestral bonds halfway around the globe.
