I have lived in Statesboro for three years now completing my college degree at Georgia Southern University. The town itself does not have a ton to offer and is largely split into a college side and a residential side. Most interactions with locals have been very pleasant. I have noticed that large amount of people living here seem to be in the lower middle-class to lower-class. There is some crime, mainly taking place in and around the university. The university has a reputation as a "party school". I feel as though this label is true, but mostly only because there is very little else for that age group to do around Statesboro!

Statesboro is a college town with very few things to do overall — with limited shopping options, outdoor activities, or entertainment locations. It’s very much a partying town when it comes to having several bars. However, what it lacks in activities, the school campus itself makes up for. The recreation facility available to University affiliates is incredible and offers so many activities within it, including golf, shooting sports, racquetball, aquatics, intramurals, etc. The campus is beautiful and more coffee shops are starting to pop up, which is nice for the scene of downtown Statesboro. In downtown there are cute things to do like the farmers market and parades, so the town is definitely picking up on having more events. Hopefully this more eventful trend continues, and better shopping/businesses can find success in Statesboro.
I love Statesboro! It is the place for college students. Statesboro has low rent, transportation buses to all three local colleges. All the stores and restaurants are near the campus. A lot of jobs opportunities are here for college students like myself.
