Georgia Southern University Launches Online Tour of Campus

Prospective Students and Parents Can Take a Tour at Home

Can’t make it to campus? No problem. Georgia Southern University has launched an online tour that gives prospective students and their parents a first-hand look at its scenic campus without having to leave home. The new tour is accessible from the University’s Web site at: www.georgiasouthern.edu.

Recognized as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country, Georgia Southern’s campus features expansive green spaces designed with the University student in mind. With nearly every campus building within walking distance, the campus has been transformed during the past 10 years to include numerous new buildings and residence halls, a recently renovated library and a pedestrium that runs through the center of campus.

“This online tour will provide students, particularly those that would have to otherwise travel long distances, the opportunity to see our campus without ever leaving home,” said Susan Davies, director of admissions at Georgia Southern University. “While there is no substitute for seeing the campus in person, our online tour is the next best thing.”

Georgia Southern University asked current students and Southern Ambassadors Clay Turner and Waneik Montgomery to host the online tour which was designed to show off some of the most popular features of campus. From the beautiful scenery of historic Sweetheart Circle to taking an “inside” look at our newest residence halls, the short tour gives prospective students the feeling of what it’s like to be on campus.

“We pride ourselves on being a major research university with the feeling of a much smaller private college,” said Davies. “Our campus not only amazes prospective students and their parents, but also alumni that have not been back in a while.”

To access the online tour, prospective students and parents can visit: www.georgiasouthern.edu and click on the “Watch a Video Tour” link at the top of the University’s home page. Student s may also schedule a personal visit to campus by clicking on the “Plan a Campus Visit” link.
Georgia Southern University, a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University, offers 116 degree programs serving nearly 18,000 students. Through eight colleges, the University offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs built on more than a century of academic achievement. The University, one of Georgia’s largest, is a top choice of Georgia’s HOPE scholars and is recognized for its student-centered approach to education. Visit: www.georgiasouthern.edu.
