About Georgia Southern University


Through more than 100 years, Georgia Southern, a Carnegie Doctoral-Research University, has stayed true to one purpose: to advance the educational and economic aspirations of Georgians. A member of the University System of Georgia, it is one of the state’s premier universities with 20,000 students, and is also one of the top choices in the state for new freshmen and HOPE scholars. Georgia Southern is the only college or university in the state to earn recognition as one of the top 10 most popular universities in the country by U.S. News & World Report.

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 community of Statesboro. The city’s host county of Bulloch continues to grow along with the University and is home to more than 70,000 residents.

The University’s traditional residential campus includes three original 100-year-old red brick and white columned buildings anchoring a “historic district” that transitions into contemporary academic and residential buildings - many of which were completed or begun during the past decade’s nearly $300 million of construction and renovation projects.
