Seeing is believing, and there’s no better way to experience Georgia Southern than by attending an Open House. You’ll get the information you need about our academic programs, student life and admission requirements. You can take a campus tour, see a residence hall, and choose from several academic buildings to visit. There are also opportunities to talk with professors about our 120+ degree programs.

Open House events begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 12:00 p.m. and feature a variety of sessions staggered throughout the morning so that students and their guests can attend the ones that interest them the most.

If you’re looking for more than just the traditional campus tour, come experience all that Georgia Southern has to offer by attending Discover Southern. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about admission requirements, hear from a panel of current student leaders, attend academic breakout sessions, and talk to faculty and staff members at our academic and student services resource fair. You’ll also be able to visit three different residence halls, and can choose to eat at our Dining Commons for a reduced cost of $8.75/person.

Discover Southern events begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 12:30 p.m. Please note that we will not offer regular campus visits on Discover Southern days.

*We strongly recommend that each student bring only one guest due to space limitations


Receptions & Previews

Receptions are a great way to meet with representatives from all academic colleges and student services departments prior to visiting campus. During this two-hour “drop-in” style event, students and their guests can speak with faculty, staff and students to learn more about all aspects of Georgia Southern. Imagine a college fair, but every table is from an area of Georgia Southern. An official welcome occurs at 7:00 p.m., featuring the Director of Admissions and a current student leader.
