About Darton Home
Darton State College is located on a 180-acre campus in Southwest Georgia, a region known for its year-round warm climate. The city has been ranked by Money Magazine as the best place to live in Georgia and among the top 115 places to live in the United States. With a population of 93,000, you will find a plethora of shopping areas and entertainment centers near the campus. Tallahassee (Fla.) and Columbus (Ga.) are a little over an hour away; Atlanta (Ga.) and Panama City (Fla.), three hours away; Orlando (Fla.) and Myrtle Beach (S.C.), four hours away.
Such access is important to occasional “road trips,” but daily life on campus is even more important. At Darton, administrators, faculty, staff, and students collaborate to assure that living and learning coincide, and that both are fun. Perhaps most indicative of these dual goals is the Center For Adventure Based Leadership, including climbing towers, located in the center of the campus. In fact, it is so remarkable that executives of Fortune 500 companies and challenge course directors from across the United States converge at Darton to train on our facilities. Yet, we didn’t build these facilities for them—we built them for students like you.
Darton has the look and feel of an exclusive private school. When you tour the campus in person or online, you will discover a state-of-the-art theatre; multiple athletic fields for intercollegiate and intramural athletics; outdoor courts for tennis and racquetball; Cavalier Arena, along with an indoor pool, a fitness center, a weight room, an indoor track, and studios for aerobics and dance; a student center, with a game room and food services. The student center includes a bowling alley, racquetball courts, and an indoor climbing wall, among other amenities.
With more than 30 campus organizations and service clubs, with 11 nationally-regarded athletic programs, and with exceptional programs and facilities in art, dance, theatre and music, Darton College seeks to be an involving campus. Darton values student engagement because research indicates that students who are involved during college ordinarily are more successful in college and in life. Learn more about Campus Life below:
