STATESBORO —  The Georgia Southern University Office of Leadership and Community Engagement will be hosting Step into Statesboro this Saturday, at the Russell Union Ballroom starting at 9 a.m.

There will be a 100 student sign-up limit.

Step in Statesboro is an annual event that seeks to introduce new and returning students to the Statesboro area, history and residents.

Students will be taken to a historic park, and meet up with residents.

Following an introduction and brief overview, participants will break into groups and head to one of Statesboro’s historic parks to meet longtime residents and hear stories about the city’s history,” a press release from the GS Office of Leadership and Community Engagement said. 

A scavenger hunt will follow, covering important sites in downtown Statesboro, and will end with lunch and reflection at First United Methodist Church’s Soup Kitchen.
