Thomas University is a four-year co-educational university that serves the post-secondary educational needs of south Georgia and north Florida. The university is located in Thomasville, Georgia, a relatively small town of over 20,000 people in rural southwest Georgia. The town is 35 miles north of Tallahassee, Florida, 55 miles south of Albany, Georgia, and 45 miles west of Valdosta, Georgia.
Thomas County has a population of 42,000 and encompasses 540 square miles. The area in and around Thomasville is characterized by many working plantations and hunting reserves that serve to remind one of days gone by. This environment helps to create an atmosphere of Old South charm that is enhanced by the many beautiful antebellum mansions, moss-laden oak trees, stately long-leaf yellow pines, bountiful azaleas, and many colorful rose gardens, a trademark of Thomasville.
Thomas University is an independent, not-for-profit, institution of higher education with undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students for successful careers and responsible citizenship in a rapidly changing and complex world.
