Welcome to GPC’s 50th Anniversary Celebration! We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate the past, present and future of the college.
GPC was founded as DeKalb College and opened its doors to the public in 1964. According to the 1965 annual, The Baron, "DeKalb is the first county to offer post high school instruction to its citizenry. No high school graduate is denied the opportunity to receive advanced instruction at a nominal cost." Now known as Georgia Perimeter College, the same principles stand true today. Georgia Perimeter College is one of the most accessible and affordable institutions within the University System of Georgia and we value student success and excellence.
We invite you to celebrate the college’s history with us through a series of fun celebrations, meaningful events and learning opportunities. We encourage all alumni who have taken at least one credit hour to reconnect with the college that gave them their start. We encourage former and retired faculty and staff to join us as we celebrate the advances we have made as an institution. We hope current students will learn about GPC tradition and get excited about being part of something memorable.
Please check back often as we are adding events and more information.
