Discover Athens

America's best college town

You may think Athens is a typical southern town — and in many ways it is — but Athens, Georgia, isn't a typical college town. Visit us and see why.

A music and cultural hub

Home to R.E.M., the B-52s, the state museum of art and a world-class concert hall, Athens is a haven for artists, musicians, athletics, chefs, and scholars. There’s always something going on.

Historic

Seventy miles from Atlanta, Athens is a harmony of old and new: Antebellum architecture, contemporary art and eclectic nightlife, a Victorian-era downtown teeming with funky shops and one of the South's most progressive culinary scenes.

Our Family Album

Y1&Y2: Checking each other out

For the first two years, students learn the fundamentals of the medical sciences through the study of the core subjects: anatomy, physiology, histology, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology, and microbiology. They also learn how to take medical histories and how to perform a physical exam, in addition to learning the principles behind diagnosing diseases.
