Why Armstrong?

A One-Of-A-Kind College Setting

Surround yourself in a place like no other.  Historic Savannah—a window to the past and a forward-thinking city of opportunity—is just minutes away, as are the sunny beaches of Tybee Island.  Armstrong is Savannah’s gem, an energetic, educational oasis in a vibrant setting.

Faculty Who Become Family

Our faculty is renowned not only for academic expertise, but also for learning about our students and helping them succeed.  Classes are small, allowing students to develop personal relationships with adjuncts and department heads alike.  Inside and outside the classroom, professors and students engage in open communication and genuine academic inquiry.

A Solid Return on Investment

Armstrong offers the attractive tuition of a state university in a nurturing environment like that of a smaller private college. Your Armstrong degree will open doors, and along the way we recognize the unique contribution you bring to Armstrong by funding institutional scholarships and grants as well as coordinating state and federal financial aid in ways that best support you.

A Wide Range of Learning Experiences

Your Armstrong experience is not confined by boundaries. Study abroad, student research, internships, community outreach and student leadership are a part of every living and learning opportunity. An Armstrong education provides many ways for you to see the world through new perspective as well as new places.

Winning Traditions

Competing at the highest levels, Armstrong athletes win on and off the field--and they bring that winning attitude to our whole campus. Our men’s and women’s tennis teams have earned 12 national championships, and our soccer team recently played in the NCAA Final Four. Student-athletes also compete in Division II basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, golf and cross-country.

A Place Where You Belong

Whether you're playing intramurals or working out in the gym, relaxing in our Student Union or residence halls, performing at Open Mic Night or walking through our serene campus, here you will find a place to call home. Armstrong is large enough to offer an array of opportunities, yet small enough to keep the focus on you.

Graduates Who Go Places

Relationships built at Armstrong will pave the path to your career. You will graduate from Armstrong with career skills as well as the curiosity and analytical abilities to gain the most from—and contribute meaningfully to—an increasingly complex and interconnected world.
