Georgia Southern University is not planning on having a concert this year.

“Georgia Southern is not planning a Spring Concert this year due to a budget realignment,” Memory Littles, interim director of the Office of Student Activities, said.

In the past, funds for concerts came from sources outside the organization, but within the university, the University Programming Board’s (UPB) budget does not cover the cost related to a possible concert on campus.

The True Blue Experience is a collaboration between different organizations on campus. As of now, there are no plans to have the True Blue Experience this year.

One of the reasons there will be no concert or True Blue Experience this year is because the two events are not priority regarding the consolidation that is taking place between the three campuses.

According to Little, there hasn’t even been a conversation.

Future events planned by UPB can be found on their MyInvolvement page.
