Jessica from Stateboro, GA
Georgia Southern University has truly become a home away from home to me. I love the large campus feel, but I love the close knit feel that GSU has to offer. I feel that Georgia Southern is very unique in that aspect and every teacher that I have had at Georgia Southern has truly cared about me being successful in their class.
