GSU comes downtown
University opens City Campus to assist 'Town and Gown'
Georgia Southern University president Brooks Keel, center, chuckles while talking with Statesboro councilman Will Britt as the university welcomes the public for the grand opening of its City Campus in Downtown Statesboro Thursday.
With the opening of its new City Campus in downtown Statesboro last week, Georgia Southern officials hope to create synergy between the university and Statesboro's business community. The City Campus will house the university's Bureau of Business Research and Economic Development along with an E-Zone, which is part of the university's Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and Learning. The E-Zone will consist of classrooms and meeting space, but will also house areas that small businesses can utilize during their initial start-up phase.
