Macon State College is a unit of the University System of Georgia, USA. It was located in Macon USA. Macon State's main campus also became the main campus of Middle Georgia State University. The campus is situated on more than 400 acres (1.6 km2) on College Station Drive, along Eisenhower Parkway (US 80), in western Bibb County, Georgia. Macon Junior College was started in 1970 .The Board of Regents directed Macon Junior College to serve civilian and military employees at Robins Air Force Base. In 1989 Dr. S. Aaron Hyatt became the college's president who asked the state to grant the college senior status. The following year, 25,000 local citizens signed a petition supporting the move, but state budget cuts prevented the issue from advancing. During the fall 2007 convocation President David Bell announced the college would reorganize from divisions into schoolsâthe School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education, the School of Information Technology, the School of Nursing & Health Sciences, and the School of Business. In April 2010, the president announced that the college had assumed operations of a 300+ apartment complex adjacent to the Macon campus. The units were available only to Macon State students and opened as student housing for the Fall 2010 semester.
