Visit Georgia Southern

Daily Visits

Georgia Southern will be closed on Friday, July 3 for Independence Day. No tours will be offered.

Our daily campus visits are one of the best ways to experience Georgia Southern! Your visit with us begins at Lewis Hall where you will meet with an Admissions Representative for an informative presentation about the University. Afterwards, one of our student ambassadors will introduce you to the Georgia Southern campus. We offer campus visits Monday through Friday in the morning at 10:30am or in the afternoon at 2:30pm. Note that visitation is not offered when the University is closed (holidays, inclement weather, etc.).

Every other Friday, we offer special information sessions for transfer students at 12:30pm. These sessions are designed just for students looking to transfer to Georgia Southern from another college or university. To make a reservation, click here.

Georgia Southern is proud to be recognized for its scenic beauty and pedestrian-friendly design. In order to fully experience what our campus has to offer, we offer walking tours. Visitors to campus should wear comfortable attire and shoes and be prepared to spend an hour viewing the campus on foot. We also advise visitors to be aware of the weather before arrival and plan accordingly. If you have special needs, please inform our office before your arrival.

In order for us to prepare for your arrival, we request that you contact us before you plan your trip.
