Open House

Seeing is believing, and there’s no better way to see 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 may take a campus tour, see a residence hall and choose from several academic buildings to visit. You’ll have the opportunity to talk with professors about our 124 degree programs. Open Houses are held on Saturday (Begins at 8am – Concludes at Noon) during the academic year and feature a variety of sessions staggered throughout the morning so you and your parents can attend the ones that interest you most.

Receptions & Previews

Receptions are a great way to meet with representatives from all academic colleges and student service departments prior to visiting campus. During this two-hour “drop-in” style event, students and supporters 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 University. An official welcome occurs at 7pm, featuring the Director of Admissions and a current student leader.

They will be available for one-on-one questions following the event.
