Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center and Planetarium


Greetings from the Fulford Center!

Within the span of our relatively brief existence, the Fulford Center has provided many educational programs and services. A facility -- no matter how large or how beautiful -- only serves a purpose if it is teeming with life.

It is central to our vision that the Fulford Center serves as an educational and cultural hub to our area, filled with planetarium shows, workshops, exhibitions, classes and performances for people of all ages. To date, many lives have been enriched by the opportunities at the Center.

Situated at the entrance of East Georgia State College, we share many wonderful resources. Please visit us soon!
