How long has Andrew College been around?
The Charter of Andrew College was granted in 1854, making it the second oldest charter in the United States giving an educational institution the right to confer degrees upon women. The institution became co-educational in 1956, and this year marks its 165th year of service. Only a handful of colleges in Georgia are older than Andrew and few possess such a rich and celebrated history!
