Celebrate: Together Festival returns to the Armstrong Campus on October 12
Celebrate: Together, a festival that celebrates the Georgia Southern University community on the Armstrong Campus in Savannah, will return this year on Oct. 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Residential Plaza. The event is free and open to the public.
“Celebrate: Together is the continuation of a long-standing Armstrong Campus tradition originating in the 1990s,” said festival committee chair Carson Myrick. “We celebrate our student organizations, campus departments and the University by hosting this legendary event. Celebrate: Together draws students, faculty and staff from our Statesboro and Hinesville campuses to Savannah for a day of fun, food and activities. This event brings everyone together and evokes pride in the community.”
The third annual event will feature departmental and student organizations, as well as fun extras. This year visitors can expect more than 100 booths and attractions that include a dunk tank, rock wall, archery tag, mechanical bull, booth decorating contest and live DJ, to bring together students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community at large. Free hot dogs and drinks will be available for all guests, and free t-shirts will be available for students, alumni and event volunteers (while supplies last).
“The thing I am most excited about when it comes to the Celebrate: Together event is the sense of unity and camaraderie that permeates the atmosphere,” said Grace Ashley, a second-year sports management graduate student. “It is a unique opportunity to witness the diversity of people, ideas, departments and experiences that our university holds.”
Ashley’s favorite part of the festival is the dunk tank.
“Not only is it just plain fun to have the opportunity to dunk President Marrero and other university officials, but it also breaks down barriers that can sometimes exist between University leadership and students,” she added.
