Morehouse College is the nation’s largest liberal arts college for men. The college continues to earn its reputation for academic excellence and producing exceptional leaders, among them civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., filmmaker Shelton “Spike” Lee and former Atlanta mayor Maynard Jackson.

The 66-acre campus includes an international chapel, a campus center and an executive center. The student body represents more than 40 states and 12 countries. In 2006, the College became steward of a 10,000-piece collection of the writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Morehouse College is three miles from downtown Atlanta — the educational, cultural, economic and entertainment capital of the Southeast and a city growing in international stature. It is a member of the Atlanta University Center, the nation’s largest consortium of historically black institutions.
