University Statement Regarding Spring Bling 2015
Georgia Southern University hosted the group, Migos this past Saturday evening as part of Spring Bling 2015. These concerts, funded through student fees, have been a tradition for several years.
The entertainment for the Spring concert is chosen by the student body. The University Programming Board, a student-led organization presents several options and students are asked to vote via the student newspaper and the website. This year, students voted for Migos.
More than 2,000 tickets were sold for the event with 1,600 of those purchased by Georgia Southern students. As with every event held on campus, we carefully considered the venue, the talent and above all, the safety of our students and guests.
After the performance, members associated with the group were arrested and taken to the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office. Information as to the status of these arrests may be referred to the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office. No Georgia Southern students or concert-goers were involved.
Georgia Southern is a student-centered university. We will continue to do all we can to provide a safe campus for students and visitors. As with this year’s concert, we will continue working together with students, to bring concerts and other entertainment to campus for their enjoyment and that of the community.
