Georgia Southern University and the Statesboro community received a facelift this summer as new places to eat, live and soar popped up all around the ‘Boro.


Low on groceries but need to stay on a budget to eat? Statesboro has options for you.

Cookout finally came to Statesboro. On July 1 Cookout, located on Fair Road between Burger King and Popeye’s, opened its doors to the public.

The Clubhouse of Statesboro obtained a license to serve alcohol in June. The family bowling, golf and laser tag center will begin serving beer and wine after the completion of a new bar area later this fall.


Need somewhere to live? Statesboro has plenty of rooms available with three new apartment complexes that opened this summer.

Georgia Southern University

Wondering why you have to pay extra fees this year? GSU is undergoing construction.

Renovation to expand Paulson Stadium began June 5. In the fall of 2012, students voted to incorporate fees that would allow GSU to move to the Football Bowl Subdivision and expand the stadium.

The new Biological Sciences Building, completed in June, is energy-efficient as a part of the green fee students voted for.
