It’s not in the historic district or anything but that area of Abercorn is still considered downtown.

No it isn’t. It isn’t even midtown. Armstrong is located in what is referred to as southside Savannah.

Depends on what your definition of downtown is. I consider the Historic district, midtown, south side district, Victorian distric, etc to all be part of “downtown Savannah.” There isn’t a specific area called “downtown” it’s split up into parts.

It's funny, because I feel this merger is primarily just to try and reverse Savannah's decline.

I think it's a bit overly dramatic to say the main campus is going to be going to Savannah, but I do think any future academic facilities are probably more likely to get built in Savannah even thought the construction would be cheaper in Statesboro.

RE: The Future of Georgia Southern is in Savannah
It is pretty much land locked unless we buy the little vacant land around it. Unless we start building high rises it will be physically impossible for the Sav Campus to ever rival the Statesboro campus....It will likely have a bunch of core classes, one or two programs and grad classes. We also will never pay to use the Sav Civic center when we can play for "free" in Stateboro... Unless it is for a big name like Duke or maybe a thUGA game...

I heard that the BOR owns all the vacant land around that campus. I don't know if that's true but I do think there is room to expand that campus if they need to. It won't ever be as large as the one in Statesboro though. And getting big name teams to come play us would literally be the point of using that arena. Plus the city of Savannah would probably cut us a deal since a game like that would help boost their economy. You think Little Rock is making Arkansas pay an arm and a leg to host a game in their city every year?

Not true and and yes a little room which is the point a little room. Yes I am sure Sav govt well be bending over backwards to bring in three thousand people at best for a Sun Belt basketball game.

You think us hosting Duke or UNC in Savannah would only bring 3,000 fans max? That’s outrageously laughable.

RE: The Future of Georgia Southern is in Savannah
According to some Troy folks, some decades ago Troy was secretly looking to move its campus from Troy to Dothan, Alabama. I guess it had to do with some local politics where the City of Troy wasn't seeing eye-to-eye with the school. Wound up never happening though... although there is a Troy University at Dothan campus that was established in 1961.

Maybe other Trojan folk on here have heard of that also?

Do any of you’re branch campus students pay athletic fees and such?

About as outrageously laughable as getting Duke or UNC to give up a home game to play GS team away...
