Georgia Southern University Alert Center released an official announcement this morning stating all classes will be canceled and campus will be closed this Friday.

No mandatory evacuation order is in effect at this time for Bulloch county, but the University is encouraging all students, faculty and staff to begin precautionary preparations today.

There is a possibility for campus to close on Thursday, Oct. 6 due to traffic on I-16 from evacuating citizens. Should this be the case, GS will send an Eagle Alert to all students, faculty and staff.
