So where in the world is Mt. Vernon, GA? You can find us at www.googlemaps.com. We are in the southeastern part of Georgia which is in the southeastern part of the United States. The area is rural, quiet, and safe which makes it ideal for study. Because there are few distractions, students spend a lot of time with each other, and there's always something to do.
The down side is that there is no public transportation. Getting to the campus from the airport is a 3 hour ride by car, so I always provide transportation at the beginning and end of each semester. To see the airport pickup and drop-off schedule, click HERE.
Most of what you need is within walking distance, and if you need to go to the nearest larger town, there's always someone going who will give you a ride. Some international students buy cars, but most just ride with friends and teammates.
You will want to know about driving while you're here. You can legally drive on your driver's license from your own country as long as you are maintaining your status and have your I-20 with you.
Some students want to get a Georgia driver's license instead. For information, go to:
