Georgia Southern’s Marketing and Communications team sent out a press release on Oct. 12, 2021 informing the Georgia Southern community about the “Hall of Champions” that the university is currently building in the Armstrong Recreation Center.

The 650-square foot area will be designed as a tribute to the storied athletic history of Armstrong before the 2018 consolidation with Georgia Southern University.

One of the consequences of consolidation was the removal of Armstrong State University’s 12 intercollegiate athletics programs, including an historically successful tennis program that won 11 NCAA Division II championships.

According to the press release, Georgia Southern expects the tribute to be completed by the end of the year, with a formal opening pencilled in for Friday, January 14, 2022, with more concrete plans expected to be announced by the end of November 2021.

Georgia Southern also provided students with a rendering of what the space is expected to look like, with sleek, maroon displays highlighting the accomplishments of Armstrong State University’s various athletics programs.
