Constructed in 1913, this building originally served the community of Milledgeville as the First United Methodist Church. In 2004, Georgia College purchased the building and in January 2005, renovations were completed and the Student Activities Center officially opened. The Student Center now serves GC students, faculty, staff, and the local community. The Magnolia Ballroom is the premier event hosting space in the Student Activities Center. The Magnolia Ballroom regularly hosts weddings, concerts, and awards ceremonies. The Student Activities Center is also home to the DEN, Georgia College’s Student Lounge, and multiple student-centered offices including the Department of Campus Life, Campus Life Business Office, Campus Activities Board, Student Government Association, Fraternity & Sorority Life, and Student Involvement.
