Georgia Southern celebrates community with A Day for Statesboro on Nov. 1

On Nov. 1, Georgia Southern University will once again host A Day for Statesboro to celebrate the relationship between Georgia Southern University and the Statesboro-Bulloch County community.
A Day for Statesboro is hosted by Georgia Southern in partnership with the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority (DSDA) and allows the University to show its love for the community with live music, True Blue spirit, family activities and more. The festivities will kick off in downtown Statesboro at 5:30 p.m.

“We are excited to give thanks to Statesboro-Bulloch County for its long-time support of the University,” said Gloria M. Goosby, director of Annual Giving. “Georgia Southern wouldn’t be Georgia Southern without the people of this community.”  

Goosby encourages everyone to join the university and DSDA for A Day for Statesboro to celebrate the strong town-gown relationship. “We hope this event shows how grateful we are for the time, talents and financial support this community has given us over the years,” she said.
