In 2009, shortly after taking a faculty position in the English department of what is now Middle Georgia State University, Dr. Shane Trayers founded the Macon Writers Group to create a community for writers living in the region.

Middle Georgia State Student Groups Step Up To Help Homeless

For several years running, Middle Georgia State University faculty member Liz Riley has been among the campers at the Greater Macon Sleepout, an annual event to raise money to help homeless members of the community. Riley, an associate professor in the School of Business, talks openly about losing a brother to alcoholism and homelessness, so the fundraiser is close to her heart. This year, she wondered if any student organizations might like to participate. To her pleasant surprise, three Middle Georgia State (MGA) student organizations stepped up.
