Why did you choose Georgia Southern?

Georgia Southern University stole my heart when I stepped on campus at Open House and saw the campus and the beautiful pedestrian with Lake Ruby and Lake Wells. When I got here it felt like home and I didn’t want to leave.

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

The student union is definitely my favorite place to be on campus by far. I love to sit in the union with my friends and exchange laughs while enjoying each others company.

As a new student, what was your favorite part of the SOAR program?

My favorite aspect of the program was my small group leader. He inspired me during the program and pushed me to the best me I could be my entire freshman year.

What is the most important piece of advice you would give to incoming students?

To get INVOLVED! That could be join a club, intramural team, working with a professor, but being involved makes college so much more enjoyable.

What is your favorite memory or experience at Georgia Southern thus far? 

Late nights at landrum with my friends. We stayed in there all night until they closed and would’ve probably stayed longer if they allowed us to. We sat and just laughed and joked to our hearts content.

Fun Fact:
