The closure and class cancellation for Georgia Southern University’s Statesboro, Armstrong and Liberty campuses is extended through Thursday, September 5 to ensure the safety of students, staff and faculty in the area, and for those who would be traveling back to one of our campuses.

As of today, we are unsure about our ability to resume regular operations on Friday (Sept. 6) until we know the full extent of Dorian’s impact. Additional notifications will be sent and added to the University Alert Center.

To recap, the University is now closed and classes are canceled for all campuses on Tuesday (Sept. 3), Wednesday (Sept. 4) AND THURSDAY (Sept. 5) due to Hurricane Dorian. 

Georgia Southern libraries and sponsored events are also closed/canceled through THURSDAY (Sept. 5).
