Georgia Southern Classes Will Move Online Thursday at 1:00 P.M.

Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of Georgia Southern’s students, faculty and staff, the University is moving all classes online and closing its campuses due to Hurricane Ian starting at 1 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 29).

All in-person events are canceled Thursday afternoon and evening, all day Friday and until officials can ensure campuses are safe. When that determination is made, an “all-clear” will be issued via EagleAlert.

Until that “all-clear” is issued, only essential personnel should be on campus after 1 p.m. on Thursday. Employees should check with their supervisor if they are unsure about their status as an essential employee. Faculty who are toggling over to online learning should do so from their homes. If they are hosting an in-person class close to 1 pm Thursday and wish to transition to online instruction, that is an authorized option.

For employees, Human Resources officials are working to ensure all Georgia Southern faculty and staff will be paid as normal this week. Look for payroll instructions in your email tomorrow. Supervisors should be aware that some employees may have unexpected childcare needs due to school closures in our area. Please be understanding and as flexible as possible. 

Students living on campus are welcome to shelter in place in their residence halls. Below are dining hall hours and operations for the remainder of the week:
