Savannah, one of Georgia's beautiful port cities, is a hub of creative, technological, and recreational activity. The city is home to over 50 art galleries, one of the largest music festivals on the East Coast, and a temperate year-round climate perfect for outdoor activities. Students of Savannah colleges and universities choose between large state universities and smaller schools offering specialized education in arts, design, technology, and more.
The 49,000 students in local Savannah colleges and universities provide much of the area's workforce, partially due to the city's Costal Workforce Services and the Chamber of Commerce's Workforce Development Program. Among Savannah colleges and universities are Savannah State University and the Savannah College of Art and Design. Scholarship and financial aid opportunities give aspiring Savannah students the chance to succeed regardless of their economic background.
