A "million-dollar letter" from Asa Candler, founder of the Coca-Cola Company, in 1915 helped transform a small Methodist college, founded in 1832, into today's research university. It has around 13,000 students and more than 3,700 academics across four undergraduate and seven graduate schools on its 600-acre Druid Hills campus.
