Step Into Statesboro

Community Engagement Tour – September 14, 2019

Students walking along the Willie McTell trail.

What is Step Into Statesboro?

Step Into Statesboro is an annual fall event designed to introduce new and returning students to the downtown Statesboro area, its history, and community service opportunities. The day begins with an introduction to your tour group and a brief overview of Statesboro history. You will then head to one of Statesboro’s historic parks to meet long time residents and hear real stories from our history! The day continues with a scavenger hunt of important sites in downtown Statesboro, and concludes with lunch and reflection at the Soup Kitchen. We want you to leave feeling excited about being a part of the Statesboro community!

The Details

Bulloch County Residents and Community Partners, Please Join Us!

September: University & community members are welcome to join small tour groups of 8-10 students each. These groups will each have a student tour guide, but the voices of residents will add insights and perspectives that students simply do not have.  General conversations about Statesboro, Bulloch County, and your words of welcome, are highly sought after! Email to attend.


For more information contact Jordan Wilburn at or by phone at 912-478-1435.
