The founders of Ralston College chose Savannah, which contains one of the largest historic urban districts in the United States, as the location for the College because of its extraordinary architectural and natural beauty, because of its warm, lively, and youthful atmosphere, and because of its ease of access to many major cities. We believe that the historic beauty of the city speaks to the living presence of the past, and will be an inspiring visual counterpart to the intellectual discovery and friendship that the College exists to foster.
Incorporation and Name
Ralston College was incorporated with the consent of the Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission of the State of Georgia for the purpose of bringing into being a College devoted to higher education and the advancement of the various arts and sciences.
