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 all 50 states and 88 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.

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning CommunitiesWe want to make sure our students are successful in their transition to life on the Georgia Southern campus, both inside and outside of the classroom. In an effort to help our students in this process, we have created Living Learning Communities. These residential communities are comprised of students who have common academic programs or take one or more classes together. In these communities, students are provided more opportunities to interact with faculty outside the classroom, receive greater academic support opportunities, feel more connected to the University and have a stronger sense of belonging.

If you’re interested in joining one of our Living Learning Communities, you can apply on the University Housing website. If you’d like to learn more about the different communities available to you, visit our Residential Communities page.
