Nursing Chairs erected by the Williams Center

Simeon Ike

In honor of the five GSU nursing students killed and two injured in the traffic collision in April of last year, seven chairs have been dedicated as a memorial to the students. The chairs are located outside the Williams Center at the entrance adjacent to the garden. The chairs are painted blue and feature the prominent Georgia Southern Eagles’ Logo with one tear that is representative of the tragedy.

It is not clear yet whether the chairs are simply there as a display or if the chairs can be utilized for sitting and lounging. The chairs seemed to come out of nowhere, becoming noticeable on Monday, April 11.

Repeated attempts to get into contact with the nursing department have left unanswered questions. But it is evident that the chairs were erected this month since this is the month in which the tragedy occurred last year.
