Georgia Southern provides an orientation and transition experience to new students like no other, by connecting the first moments of your commitment to GS all the way through your first year with us. It’s called The Eagle Experience.
We want you to be ready for success in the classroom and in dining halls, on game days and during job interviews, and at every point in between. This intentional approach is like no other, grounding you through tight-knit communities, hands-on activity, and academic support. You’re on an amazing journey and we are with you all the way.
Make a Pre-Flight Visit to Campus! Before you take flight in August, see your new campus to tour, review enrollment steps, and get your final questions answered! This optional visit, part of The Eagle Experience, allows committed new students and their supporters to visit in-person ahead of the fall semester.
New Student Convocation
Convocation is the formal beginning of your academic journey. You’ll hear from current and former students and a professor about how to grow and thrive in college. After Convocation, you will join your fellow new students at the President’s Picnic for food and time to explore your campus and see what makes it unique.
August Events and Programs
We have so much going on in August to welcome you to campus and set you up for success. Check it all out in the Eagle Engage portal!
