  • Founded nearly 120 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 status as an 1895 state land-grant university has led to remarkable innovations in agriculture and related fields. Throughout the FVSU history, our acclaimed biology and chemistry departments are responsible for sending countless students to medical and dental programs; which has produced world-renowned professionals. In addition, our comprehensive liberal arts curriculum continues to set new standards of excellence. Keeping up with technological advances, we offer top-notch online programs and the opportunity to keep abreast of FVSU’s goings-on through Facebook and Twitter. We have an excellent relationship with the city of Fort Valley and surrounding areas. 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 of 2,594, 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. We’re family here. Everyone belongs. Our more than 70 student organizations and activities range from a thriving sorority and fraternity system, to conference-leading athletic teams, honor societies and student government. FVSU offers the ideal environment for one-on-one learning, and also encourages connections to the world, both near and far, through relationships with local communities and study abroad programs that trace ancestral bonds around the globe. FVSU is growing and building: we have apartment-style residence halls, a spacious Wildcat Stadium, and state-of-the-art learning facilities. Check the website regularly for updates on these projects.
