Thank you for taking the time and interest to view the College of Agriculture Family Sciences and Technology website. We hope your next step will be to call me, one of the department heads, coordinators, faculty members, staff or make a personal on campus visit so you may interact with our students and learn more about CAFST. If you are a Georgian, you probably know that we are located about 100 miles south of Atlanta off I-75 in a community of about 10,000 people.

CAFST has an enrollment of approximately 500 (growing) undergraduate and graduate students. We are extremely proud of the College’s students and its wide recognition for excellence in undergraduate education, research and outreach programs. The College is ranked 25th nationally in the production of African American Agriculturists. CAFST has also been the University’s leader in placing first time applicants into medical, dental, veterinary and pharmacy Schools/Colleges since 2001. The College has some of the most modern and well-equipped laboratories in the state and our scientists are securing external grant funds and conducting cutting edge research. Our students work with the scientists in these laboratories and is part of the reason for our national ranking and our students’ ability to enter professional and graduate schools.

Again, thank you for reading our Web page and please contact us and lets talk about how we can help you realize your dreams.
