Congratulations on taking the first step in making Georgia Southern your new home.
A big university offers a lot: thousands of course options and more than 120 majors, a constant buzz of activity, big-time sporting events and spirited intramurals, and lively study sessions and intense research opportunities. All within a campus of stately buildings, filled with history and tradition. That’s Georgia Southern.
A smaller place has its advantages: close working relationships with your professors, classmates who become more than faces in the crowd, and opportunities to make a difference in student life on campus. All within a safe, warm community, where just about everyone says hello to one another. That’s Georgia Southern.
