The East Georgia State College Statesboro location is hosting a ribbon cutting and open house at its new location Monday, April 18, at 11 a.m. EGSC-Statesboro completed renovations and moved into the Nessmith-Lane Building on Georgia Southern University’s campus in January.

The new space offers offices for faculty and staff, an Academic Center for Excellence (A.C.E.), classrooms and convenient access to Georgia Southern’s campus. Being located on their campus provides an easy transfer pathway to Georgia Southern.

The two institutions launched the Bobcat to Eagle Program (B2E) program last year to help the partnership between the two institutions continue to grow. The program increases access and simplifies the process for progression to Georgia Southern for those students who start out at EGSC-Statesboro. The concept of the program is not new, but the recent collaboration, the Bobcat to Eagle Program (B2E), signifies the commitment to the students of the region.

The Nessmith-Lane Building is located at 847 Plant Drive in Statesboro, Georgia. The ribbon cutting and open house are both open to the community.
