Situated on the University of Georgia’s historic and beautiful North Campus, the Terry College of Business enjoys all the benefits of being a small business school within a nationally prominent research university. Athens has both small-town charm and a penchant for eclecticism, and since it’s just a hop away from Atlanta, UGA students can easily take advantage of the many amenities both cities offer.
Terry Facilities in Athens
Brooks Hall has been home to UGA’s business school since its construction in 1928. Back then it was called the Commerce-Journalism Building, but today it houses office space for faculty and staff as well as an auditorium for classes.
Named in honor of A. D. "Pete" Correll (BBA '63), Chairman Emeritus of Georgia-Pacific Corp., and his wife, Ada Lee Correll, a graduate of the UGA College of Education, Correll Hall was dedicated in September 2015 and serves as home for the college's graduate programs. The 74,000-square-foot facility includes a business innovation lab, multiple project team rooms and a graduate commons.
Built in 1997, Sanford Hall provides secondary office space for Terry College programs, high-tech classrooms, and an auditorium on the main floor. Sanford Hall is also home the Coca-Cola Lounge, a popular study space for Terry students.
Directions + Parking
The Terry College of Business is located on the west side of North Campus, adjacent to the Law School. Visitors to Brooks Hall can park at the North Campus Parking Deck and walk across campus to Brooks Hall. Visitors to Correll Hall are encouraged to park at the Tate Center deck.
The bustling hub that is downtown Athens is adjacent to UGA’s North Campus and the Terry College. Athens' victorian-era buildings are home a variety of eateries, pubs, venues and locally-owned shops that collectively put Athens on the list of 10 Great College Towns.
Athens has long-been the most celebrated college music scene in the country. Home of the University of Georgia, the Southern city is rich with performance space including the dive-esque 40 Watt, which has hosted everyone from Pylon to Nirvana to The Pixies, and the recently rebuilt Georgia Theatre… And with its own mini-festival, Athfest, Athens’s supportive community is perhaps its biggest asset.
Occasionally, I run into people who were here thirty years ago (or twenty, or ten) and then left for a more sensible adult pursuit. Inevitably, they ask me if the Athens music scene of today is anywhere near as good as it was in their own halcyon college years. I've always given the same response: "It’s even better." This answer is often met with disbelief. "It can’t be." "Impossible." "It was so special then." It was special then, no doubt about it. Nonetheless, it keeps on growing.

The University of Georgia
Terry College students enjoy the best of both worlds. On one hand, the business school is small and personal — professors know students’ names and the alumni network is visibly active on campus. On the other hand, The University of Georgia is a major university with some of the best sports teams and most advanced academic resources available.
