My name is Stephen Warner, and I am your Admissions Counselor at Georgia Southern University. Seven years ago, however, I was a new Out-of-State student from Pennsylvania. Georgia Southern was the perfect school for me because:
- It was the right size – large, but with the feel of a small college
- It was one of the top schools for the major that I wanted to pursue
- The campus was beautiful, walkable and had great scenery
- The weather was warm, which was a nice change from the snow that I was used to
- It offered personal attention from my professors
- It had amazing NCAA sports
- It allowed me to grow as a person and as a leader
I loved Georgia Southern so much that I didn’t want to leave after I graduated. Luckily, I was hired to be the Coordinator of Out-of-State Recruitment, so now I get to travel outside of Georgia to recruit students just like me to join the Eagle Nation. I love being a resource for Out-of-State students because I was one as well, so please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions! Georgia Southern was the perfect fit for me, so I want to help you decide if it is the perfect fit for you!

- I chose to come to Georgia Southern because I wanted to experience a school away from home (Pennsylvania) but still be able to come to a place that I would feel comfortable calling home. I also wanted to go to a big school where I could meet new people but not be too overwhelmed. Everyone has so much school spirit, which was also a reason why I chose Georgia Southern. From football games, to other various events that the university holds, everyone here is so proud to represent the Eagle Nation.Coming to Georgia Southern was the best decision I’ve made so far. Socially, there are so many activities to participate in whether it’s sports or studying abroad. Academically, Southern is a great place to study because there are so many programs to choose from. The professors here really take the time to make sure you are understanding everything and they make it a point to make a personal connection with each student, even in a big lecture class.
