Statesboro Reviews

Statesboro is a college town. The main college is Georgia Southern University and it provides all matters of opportunities for the community. There are a few other colleges around too to give people more options. Statesboro's nightlife has drastically decreased due to some very unfortunate accidents but there are still things to do. There is paintball, pottery making/painting, Trampoline park, recreation fields, bowling and arcade and Splash in the Boro! Statesboro has a little something for everyone.

I lived in Statesboro for 3 years while attending Georgia Southern University. It took a while for me to fall in love with the town as much as I loved the campus, but once I did it felt like home! It's a small town with a ton of locals, but you can definitely tell it's a college town! There are so many hidden gems down back roads and old store fronts you'll never know about unless you take the time to really explore the town. Though there are only about half a dozen bars or so, the nightlife plays a big role in the GSU college experience, and everything is conveniently close to the campus and separated from the local residential areas (both students and locals appreciate this!). It's also close enough to Savannah and Tybee Island to take day trips or just a night out on River Street! For someone from an urban background, it's the perfect mix of a college town and small, southern town.
I love Statesboro because it is such a neat little town. It is home to Georgia Southern University, which is an amazing college! The town really comes together and rallies support for the Georgia Southern Eagles when football season comes around. There are so many restaurants to eat at and I love visiting downtown Statesboro because there are little shops everywhere that are really neat to shop in. Statesboro also has Splash in the Boro that attracts many visitors each day. I love Statesboro and think it is an awesome place to live and visit.
