New signs big and small trumpet a historic day at Middle Georgia State: The college becomes a university Wednesday.

“We are Georgia’s newest university,” college President Christopher Blake said Tuesday. “It’s a great thing to think about.”

The college has undergone big transitions in the past couple of years, from the merger of Macon State with Middle Georgia College in 2013 to the plan to offer master’s degree programs by next spring.

At the time of the merger, “It was envisioned that that college would be an interim step to a state university,” Blake said.
