Boro Browse Spring 2022
We are excited to invite you to participate in our Spring 2022 ‘Boro Browse on the Statesboro campus on Wednesday, January 26, 2022. The Browses give campus departments, community businesses and non-profit agencies an opportunity to visit campus and share information about their goods and services with Georgia Southern students, staff, and faculty. It is also an excellent opportunity to directly engage with our incoming and returning students to provide them with knowledge of your business, organization, or campus department’s services.
Campus and community partners are highly encouraged to host tables with food, activities, giveaways or other items that showcase your organization the best! Active and engaging booths help students remember your group and what you have to offer. Selling items and soliciting contracts are not permitted.
