Georgia Southern University Cookie Recipe Contest

At Georgia Southern, we’re known for our traditions. We’re known for Erk and yellow school buses and Beautiful Eagle Creek. We’re known for the magic that happens when you walk around Sweetheart Circle three times with your soul mate. We’re known for our watermelon cuttings and the tight-knit family that makes up the Eagle Nation.

And if you have the taste, the skills and the determination, Georgia Southern will also be known for your next-level cookie recipe!
