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.
