At the Statesboro Campus of Georgia Southern University, we have around 350 student organizations under supervised advisors who are actually the faculty or staff of this university. And we have organizations for different kinds of majors and fields of interests in extracurricular activities.
On the Armstrong Campus, we have over 100+ organizations. Things like the Gay Straight Alliance, Collegiate 100. So pretty much anywhere you need to find a space to be yourself and make friends, there's always something available for you.
I personally am heavily involved in the Alternative Breaks program, which essentially, you're going to be able to go and volunteer not just for a day, but for a week long trip. And you're going to be able to go to a variety of locations, whether internationally or domestically.
I'm personally a part of Collegiate 100, as their queen. I'm also a member of Peers Educating Peers, and a part of the Emerging Leaders. So there's always something to do to get involved on campus.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs, they are-- they oversee the minority programs. And what they do is they also offer resources. You need study help, you need study tips, you need anything-- they'll help you with your classes. They are really there for you.
If you look at our student groups and organizations, it's everybody that's involved. It's not one group of individuals that are connected. So you will see people from all over the world, and all over the United States interacting, whether it's in the cafeteria, whether it's in a student organizational meeting. So it's a really good opportunity for our students to learn from each other, and it helps them better prepare for the future.
