In April of 1908 the Sixth District
Agricultural and Mechanical College opened here with 18 students.
In September of 1930 the school was reorganized as Georgia Industrial
College. President T.O. Galloway was the guiding spirit of the
college from 1918 to 1933, during which time the school greatly
expanded its enrollment, programs and facilities. The school
was abolished at the end of the 1933 school year to reduce State
expenditures and to help balance the State budget. At the height
of its operation, the college enrolled over 200 students and
employed 15 faculty members.
