Accept the Offer to Join the Program
Students who applied by the November 1, 2018 deadline will hear on decisions by February 1. If accepted to the program, your letter (and a follow-up email) contains a link to an on-line form where accepted students can declare their intent to join the program or decline the offer.
SOAR A Orientation Session
You will need to register for a SOAR session this summer.
Our preference is that you attend SOAR Session A, which is June 3-4, 2019 for Statesboro Campus students and is June 5-6, 2019 for Armstrong Campus Students. Attending this session will allow you to be among the first of the incoming freshman class to register for fall semester classes.
To register for SOAR, please do so online at http://admissions.georgiasouthern.edu/orientation/.
Honors Living Learning Community and Housing
As a new freshman honors student, you have the opportunity to live in the Honors Living-Learning Community either in Centennial Place on the Statesboro Campus or in Windward Commons on the Armstrong Campus.
This Community is exclusively for incoming University Honors Program students and honors students from the sophomore, junior, and senior years who are selected to be peer mentors.
By living surrounded by other students just as dedicated to their academic pursuits, your drive to succeed will be fueled and matched. Lifelong friendships and networks are formed in the residence halls, and living in the Honors Community will give you proximity to your classmates from honors courses as you form study groups, hold movie nights, or just hang out and debate the big ideas until the wee hours.
We want the Honors Living-Learning Community to be your new home, not to replace the one you left behind but rather to welcome you to your life as a scholar. Students like you thrive in these types of environments.
Places in the community are limited, but if you confirm with us by May 1, we can reserve a place for you in the community. Complete your Housing application at this site: www.georgiasouthern.edu/housing/apply.
Accepted students who have already registered for housing but now want to join the Honors Living Learning Community can contact Housing to have their preference changed. (If you indicated on our Accepted Students form that you wish to be in the LLC, then Housing already knows!)
Survey of First-Year Honors Students
In May, a few weeks before SOAR A, you will receive a survey from the University Honors Program where you will be given the opportunity to indicate your preferences for Honors Core Classes and Honors First-Year Experience courses.
It is important that you complete this survey as soon as you receive it. Your answers will help us plan your first year at Georgia Southern and in the Honors Program as well as help us plan for all students joining the program.
Please make sure you provide us with your most recent email address so you receive this survey. When you accepted the offer to join the program, you gave us an email address to where we should sent the survey. If that address has changed, please send the updated email address to Erin Martin, Honors Advising Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
