Savannah State University
For 131 years, Savannah State University has been an important part of higher education. As the oldest public HBCU in Georgia and the oldest institution of higher learning in the historic city of Savannah, SSU has served this community with distinction while meeting the educational needs of an increasingly diverse student population. Savannah State continues to engage in groundbreaking research. SSU sent cutting-edge genetic material from campus laboratories to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2014. Savannah State also earned two patents in 2016. One allows for the collection and harvest of organic material necessary for long-distance space travel. The other is a new chemical that has implications for treating Alzheimer's, ALS and dementia.

About Student Involvement
Savannah State University offers many opportunities for students to be involved in groups and organizations, whether on campus or in the community. These organizations have different missions including social, service, political, philosophical, and religious.
There are over 70 student organizations here at the University. We encourage you to become a part of one or more because we know that campus involvement contributes to academic and personal success. These associations encourage independence and development or critical thinking skills and overall sense of connection to Savannah State University and other students.
