Albany, Georgia offers many of the amenities of a large city while retaining the character of a small town. Just three hours from Atlanta to the north and the sparkling beaches of the Florida panhandle to the south, Albany is truly the hub of Southwest Georgia. With affordable, good quality housing, state-of-the-art medical facilities, and attractions like Chehaw Wild Animal Park, the Riverquarium, the Albany Symphony, Theater Albany, downtown eateries, concerts, and festivals, the area offers plenty to see and do. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the area’s picturesque natural environment filled with opportunities to hunt and fish. And, of course, true Southern hospitality is always on display!
Darton College’s 180-acre campus on Albany's western edge includes a 470-seat theater, state-of-the-art library, fitness center, computer labs, and sports facilities such as tennis and racquetball courts, an indoor swimming pool, a nature trail and ball fields.
The institution was founded as Albany Junior College in 1963 and offered its first classes in 1966. In 1987, a committee of faculty, staff, students and community members chose the name Darton College. "Darton" is an old English word meaning "town by the water" - which connotes Albany's location on the Flint River.
