Fall 2020 Commencement
Georgia Southern held its first in-person commencement ceremonies in more than a year Dec. 13, 15 and 16. In ceremonies at the Savannah Convention Center and at Allen E. Paulson Stadium in Statesboro, graduates wore masks and socially distanced to receive their diplomas and celebrate with friends and family. Georgia Southern University President Kyle Marrero conferred degrees for more than 2,100 students over five ceremonies, braving bitter cold and rain at the Paulson ceremonies.
“I don’t need to tell you that this year has been challenging for all of us, but I am proud of how we have persevered together to have a successful semester and today our commencement ceremony,” Marrero said. “You, our graduates, deserve this recognition. This graduation is a momentous occasion indeed for Georgia Southern University, as well as for all of you. Today, you are part of Georgia Southern history.”
