Eagles gather for ‘Celebrate Together’ on the Armstrong Campus 

On Oct. 20, nearly 2,000 people showed up for Celebrate Together, a festival celebrating the Georgia Southern University community on the Armstrong Campus in Savannah.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the local community filled Residential Plaza for a perfect, fall day of fun. On site were 114 vendor booths that showcased departmental and student organizations, as well as local businesses, who handed out free swag, snacks and T-shirts. 

“The event was a tremendous success,” said event chair and assistant director of special events and protocol Amanda Heinz. “Georgia Southern faculty, staff, alumni and students came together to engage with one another, learn more about the various aspects of campus life offered at the Armstrong Campus, and to enjoy a day that is all about fostering community and connection across campus.”

Georgia Southern’s mascot GUS and bald eagle Freedom also entertained the crowd, who enjoyed free hot dogs and drinks, along with a rock climbing wall, foam pit, archery tag, animals from Georgia Southern’s Center for Wildlife Education and a live DJ.

In a fundraiser for the Armstrong Commitment Fund, President Kyle Marrero and other University leaders braved the dunk tank, as they were plunged into the cold-water temperatures after rounds of shots hit the bull’s-eye mark.
