The event, ‘Keeping it C.L.A.S.S.Y,” begins at 9 p.m. at the French Quarter, 106B Savannah Ave. in Statesboro.
‘We agreed as a group that a scholarship for Georgia Southern’s Study Abroad program was one project we could all buy into,” said board representative Laine Bradley. ‘Everyone thinks studying abroad is a great idea. With proceeds from this project we can launch a scholarship that will be ongoing and will benefit fellow students.”
The college’s Student Advisory Board is comprised of student representatives from all ten CLASS departments who serve as liaison between the students, the dean, and the department heads. Working together, they will be talking about ‘Keeping it C.L.A.S.S.Y” on Facebook, in the classroom, in the George-Anne, and on WVGS radio, ‘The Buzz.” There is no cover charge for this, and all proceeds for the evening will go to the new scholarship.
