Armstrong Facts at a Glance

Situated on the Atlantic coast in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, Armstrong State University is a dynamic public university known for excellent arts and sciences along with outstanding professional programs. With approximately 7,100 students, Armstrong is small enough to foster a genuine sense of community and large enough to offer more than 100 academic programs that prepare our graduates for success in their careers and leadership in their communities. Armstrong is part of the University System of Georgia.

Please take a few moments to learn more about our history, what we have become and where we envision the future taking us.


Since our founding in 1935 by the city of Savannah and community partners, Armstrong has been a strong force, contributing to the vitality of our region, nation and beyond. Take a trip from 1935 to the present and see the many things Armstrong is proud to share.

Rankings and Facts

Did you know that Armstrong has an average of only 19.5 students per class (all taught by professors, rather than graduate assistants)? Or that the Armstrong community heads out twice each year to give back to our surrounding community in the biannual Treasure Savannah Day of Service? There are always a number of great things happening here.

Strategic Plan

Reaffirming our commitment to being a teaching-first university with a solid liberal arts core and strong ties to our community , we aim to prepare graduates not just for careers, but for thoughtful, civically engaged lives.
