On a dreary day fit for ducks, Georgia Southern student Charles Bulger III of Decatur, 21, right, shares his lunch at the Lakeside Cafe Tuesday as university students return to class for the first time in 2011.
Congested roads and a steady flow of people through Wal-Mart's doors this weekend signaled the return of Georgia Southern students to their Statesboro homes and dorms. Tuesday, more than 18,000 students attended their first day of classes, as the university's spring semester officially began. "I am absolutely excited to see the students return and to kick off the new semester," said Brooks Keel, Ph.D., president of Georgia Southern University.
