Campus Life at Georgia Southern

The Georgia Southern University campus itself is one of us. It breathes. It is alive. It is a memory maker. It is a comfortable place of endless activity and interaction for both educational and personal growth. There are a wide variety of facilities, services and organizations available to the 20,000-plus students interested in exercising, maintaining their health, enjoying the outdoors, making new friends or sharing ideas.

Georgia Southern has provided me with a nurturing learning environment and a home away from home.

I just wanted to thank you for that.

-Emily Chizmar: Honors student, Math major

Located just an hour from historic Savannah, Hilton Head Island and the Atlantic coast, Georgia Southern’s 900-plus acre campus is nestled in the classic Main Street town of Statesboro, Georgia. It boasts a lively and picturesque downtown, where visitors enjoy boutique shops, restaurants, a seasonal farmer’s market and diverse cultural activities. Statesboro and Bulloch County continue to grow along with the University, and are now home to more than 72,000 residents.

Even with an abundant downtown, students don’t have to travel far to find things to do. Our campus offers excellent housing, dining, transportation, recreation and health and safety services to a diverse student body from 48 states and 89 countries. From the picturesque lawn of Sweetheart Circle, with its Georgian-style buildings and sprawling live oaks, to the rock climbing wall and fitness amenities at The RAC, Georgia Southern University remains one of the nation’s premier places to live, work, study and grow.
