About Macon State
The 419-acre Macon Campus, located in western Bibb County near the intersection of U.S. Highway 80 and Interstate 475, is our oldest and largest campus, with 11 major structures committed to academic, residence life and student support. These include:
College Station apartments (at right) -- The college assumed management of this existing housing complex in 2010. The complex, made up of seven apartment buildings, plus a pool and community meeting house, can house more than 300 students and opens for the first time in Fall 2010. The complex is located just west of the lake.
Professional Sciences and Conference Center (shown at top) -- This new building, located to the left of the Jones Building shown below, was completed in early 2009. It is home to the School of Business, the School of Information Technology and the Conference Center.
Student Life Center -- The Student Life Center houses admissions and registration offices, cafeteria, bookstore and (temporarily) the School of Education.
Library and Academic Resources Center -- Our library and ARC building is equipped with the latest technology. It also features a coffee shop, study rooms and dozens of computers for individual or group study.
Charles H. Jones Building (above) -- This building, situated along our lake, is home to the School of Nursing and Natural Sciences.
Humanities/Social Sciences Building -- This building houses the Humanities and Social Sciences programs within the School of Arts and Sciences. The building is directly adjacent to the Arts Complex/Theatre.
The other major buildings on campus are:
As of June 2010, construction was continuing on the Macon Campus for a new Education Building. This building, expected to be occupied by the Fall of 2011, will become the permanent home of the School of Education, the Educational Technology Center and the Regional Educational Service Agency.
Our Macon Campus is in a beautiful setting, as it sits in the middle of the Waddell Barnes Botanical Gardens, which offer students and visitors alike beauty and colorful surroundings throughout the year.
