Why did you choose Georgia Southern? “I began my search looking at several schools. When it came to Georgia Southern, a variety of factors came into play.  First of all, I got a full scholarship which was a huge factor in decision making (especially for my parents).  Next, I had an amazing admissions counselor who really took the time to get to know me and was always there to help me way pros and cons between universities.  Though she no longer works as a recruiter, I am always able to go to the woman who helped me navigate through the college admission process and get help and advice about anything that may be going on in my life.  Though a helpful admissions counselor and an amazing scholarship were great selling points for Georgia Southern, the campus practically sold itself.  When I first came to visit I fell in love and every visit after that I found something new that made me more and more excited about being a part of the Eagle Nation.  Ultimately, I fell in love with Georgia Southern and the opportunities that were presented to me as an undergraduate student here that could not be matched by any other college.”

James’s Georgia Southern Experience: “After being here for one year, I can definitely say that I made the right decision by choosing to come to Georgia Southern.  I have had the opportunity to meet a variety of people from different backgrounds and connect with administrators ranging from the Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, Dr. Teresa Thompson, to the Greek Life Advisor, Ms. Joy Hamm, and even the Dean of Students himself, Dr. Georj Lewis.  The small-feel aspect of Georgia Southern allowed me to become a part of the Student Government Association and be a voice for students while I was able to benefit from the resources offered by being a large-scale university.  As a freshman, I was able to open my eyes to a variety of different majors and careers as well as finding what my passions truly are and discover where I want to see myself after graduation.  In the short time I’ve been here, my experience has been nothing short of breathtaking and I’m excited to see the experiences I have to opportunity to be a part of in the near future!”
