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.

Discover Southern

Take advantage of the holiday weekend and “Discover Southern!”

Columbus Day: Monday, October 10, 2016
Presidents’ Day: Monday, February 20, 2017

Instead of taking just the traditional campus tour, come for an extended visit with academic breakout sessions, a campus tour, information on admissions requirements, and a current student leader panel. You will also participate in a browse with all academic colleges and many student services departments. Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to visit three different residence halls and can choose to eat in the Dining Commons (for a reduced cost of $8.75 per person). We strongly recommend bringing only one guest per student due to space limitations.

Discover Southern will begin at 8:30am and conclude at 12:30pm. We will not offer regular campus visits on Discover Southern days. Space is limited, so make your reservation soon. Reservations for Columbus Day 2016 will open in August 2016.


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.

October 11, 2016 | Atlanta I Reception, The Cobb Galleria 
October 18, 2016 | Augusta Reception, Savannah Rapids Pavilion
October 20, 2016 | Jacksonville Reception, The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens
January 17, 2017 | Atlanta II Reception, The Cobb Galleria


Previews are in depth information sessions for students and supporters wanting to learn more about Georgia Southern without traveling to Statesboro. It is a great first step in the college search process. Admissions counselors will review Georgia Southern programs, both inside and outside of the classroom, and admissions requirements. They will be available for one-on-one questions following the event.
