34 Signs That You Went To Georgia Southern

The Prettiest Little College in America.

Posted on

1. Hail Southern!

We love our Eagles and we're cocky about it. Especially after five hours of tailgating, preceded by two hours of pregame...despite being hungover from the previous two nights. Six Flags over Georgia baby. Hail Southern.

2. Erk Russell

Father of the modern Georgia Southern football program. Went 83-22-1 and won three I-AA national championships in his eight years as head coach. Heros get remembered but legends never die.

3. You've had at least one awkward moment at the hot tub/sauna in the RAC


5. The Marching Band threw the best parties.

Nerds can party too.

7. You avoid the Russell Union rotunda like the plague.

I'd rather die than take your flyer.

8. The Plaza

Everybody has spent at least one night in the Bermuda Triangle of Statesboro. What happens in the Plaza, stays in the least until it shows up on GSUProblems. Speaking of..


10. G.A.T.A.

Get After That Ass.

11. The Small

Statesboro + Mall = Small

12. Greeks look like this.

Who likes short shorts?


13. The RAC

Pretty darn good gym. Just don't go there on guilt trip Sundays.

14. You've spent at least one night in Club Henderson

Convinced people live in the library rent free.

16. You know how to drink.

Part of the curriculum.


18. You hate parking tickets with a passion.

and those damn parking ticket ninjas.

19. You are scared of the Lakeside wildlife.

If you think the geese are aggressive, wait till you see the alligators.

20. Landrum

If you went to GSU pre-2013 you have no idea what this is.


21. You eat way too much Chick-Fil-a.

and avoid the lunchtime rush at all cost.

23. Old Dorms vs. New Dorms

If you're old like me you probably stayed at Olliff, Johnson, Winburn, Hendricks, Sanford, or Veazey and wear it like a badge of honor. You pity the kids that stay in super fancy EV or Centennial their freshman years.


25. You had to run to the County Line to get liquor.

You do what you gotta do.

26. Pool Parties.

Benefit of 250+ days of sunshine a year. I met Danny from Real World Austin at one. I. Swear. To. God.

28. You use Wal-Mart for 90% of your shopping.

Most of the time after midnight to avoid the local rush.


29. Talons Grille is considered fine dining.

and you're willing to wait for it.

32. You hate App State.
