About Eagle Village
Eagle Village combines private bedrooms with many opportunities for community development through shared lounges, floor kitchens, and the four-unit apartment cluster. The apartment cluster gives students the opportunity to easily be able to meet and connect with other students in the residence hall. A shared clubhouse provides students with a computer lab, classrooms, and programming space for social and educational events sponsored by the residence hall staff.

These visits are geared toward students looking to transfer to Georgia Southern from another college or university.
Transfer Fridays are offered on the Statesboro Campus on select Fridays throughout the year from noon – 2 p.m. Your visit begins at Lewis Hall, home of the Office of Admissions, where you will meet with a member of our transfer recruitment team for an informative presentation about the university and the admissions process. Afterward, one of our Southern Ambassadors will lead you on a walking tour of our beautiful campus, followed by an opportunity to meet one-on-one with an Admissions Counselor, apply for admission, or complete your next steps. Transfer Fridays are different from SOAR (orientation). You will not meet with an advisor to discuss class placement, credit, or selection during these visits. Transfer students are welcome to register for a daily campus tour but please note the presentation is focused on freshmen. Pre-registration is requested.
