About GSU

With over 100 academic concentrations and a continually growing enrollment, Georgia Southern University prides itself on being one of the premiere research institutions in Georgia. The school is the largest in southern Georgia, and in 2006, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching officially classified it as a research university.

Georgia Southern’s extensive academics are divided throughout eight colleges. It also offers online courses, most of which lead to graduate and doctoral degrees. Business, education, nursing, and kinesiology are some of the subjects included in the online school.

The university also has much to offer in terms of student life. The city of Statesboro, which houses GSU, offers southern city charm with a college-town feel. The Botanical Garden, Center for Wildlife Education, and Lamar Q Ball, Jr. Raptor Center provide a natural haven to GSU students. You can also check out exhibits at the Georgia Southern Museum or the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art, or catch a show at the Performing Arts Center.

Financial aid at Georgia Southern is plentiful as well. Scholarships are based primarily on merit, and some are awarded to students in particular colleges. GSU also offers an out-of-state fee waiver, so students who meet certain academic criteria can pay in-state tuition.

The school is fantastic. The food in the cafeteria is good. The life and feel of the school is really great. There are a lot of things to do right around the school. I would recommend living around campus so you can experience the life and atmosphere of the college.

I absolutely love Georgia Southern! The school overall makes you feel at home. Large scale, small feel is our motto; it is tried and true! I am beyond grateful that I chose to attend this prestigious university in Georgia. There is no other place I would rather be! Hail Southern.
