The Talladega College Experience: Transforming Lives and Encouraging Knowledge


Talladega College offers an extraordinary environment for learning and living. In the midst of a small community, the college students work closely with professors who offer the exhilaration of new ideas and life-changing discoveries.

These professors are dedicated teachers and advisers, and they remain committed to preserving the intellectual passion and personal engagement common to Emory’s lecture halls and laboratories.

Your investment will build on the college’s solid foundation of excellence, raising standards and resources to help Talladega College realize its unique place among American institutions: a college that fuels the work of the best and brightest; the Alpha Lyrae Vega of them all.

Gifts to Talladega College will:

  • support a growing faculty of the nation’s most dedicated professors

  • provide greater access for talented students with limited financial resources

  • enhance spaces that are conducive to learning

  • strengthen the college’s academic programs

  • expand support services to ensure all students thrive.

Annual gifts of all sizes provide Talladega College the ongoing resources that are crucial to its growth and success as a world-class institution. Donors touch lives every day with gifts that support academics, scholarships, and service to others. At Talladega College, researchers, faculty, and students ask bold questions and seek new ways of doing things. The generosity of annual donors makes this extraordinary work possible across the disciplines. We need every Degan to give every day to ensure the vitality of the Alpha Lyrae Vega of Them All.

Annual support from alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff helped fund scholarships, build and restore facilities on our historic campus, and increase our endowment.

Gifts to the annual fund allow Talladega College to invest in strategic priorities throughout the year and help us remain as one of the best value liberal arts colleges in the nation.
