About Georgia Southern University - Statesboro Campus
Georgia Southern University is the state’s largest and most comprehensive center of higher education south of Atlanta. With 141 degree programs at the associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels, Georgia Southern is designated a Carnegie Doctoral/Research university and serves more than 27,000 students on three vibrant campuses—the Armstrong campus in Savannah, the Statesboro campus, and the Liberty campus in Hinesville. Georgia Southern offers an attractive campus environment that encourages learning, discovery, and personal growth. Nationally accredited academic programs prepare diverse scholars for leadership and service as working citizens.
Since 1906, the University’s hallmark has been a culture of engagement that bridges theory with practice, extends the learning environment beyond the classroom, and promotes student growth and life success. Central to the University’s mission is the faculty’s dedication to excellence in teaching and the development of a fertile learning environment exemplified by a free exchange of ideas, high academic expectations, and individual responsibility for academic achievement. Faculty, staff, and students embrace core values expres...sed through integrity, civility, kindness, collaboration, and a commitment to lifelong learning, wellness, and social responsibility.
Founded in 1906, Georgia Southern lays claim to being the most beautiful campus in the state. Comprising more than 690 acres, the University grounds are an arboretum-like treasure featuring gently rolling lawns, scenic ponds and soaring pines. The historic core of campus is the quintessential college portrait – Georgian-style red brick buildings with white columns around a sweeping, tree-lined circular drive. Beyond this circle, classic and contemporary lines blend to showcase continuing growth and expansion of facilities. Statesboro, a safe and classic Main Street community of approximately 30,000 residents, is located an hour from historic Savannah and beach resorts, and just over 200 miles from Atlanta.
