Join Georgia Southern President Kyle Marrero and the Office of Student Activities for the annual Lighting of Sweetheart Circle on Wednesday, November 16, at 5:30pm.

Guests will enjoy pictures with Santa Gus, cookie decorating, and holiday treats. Grice Connect will livestream the event on Facebook, as well.

This year, the University asks that you bring unopened soap and unworn socks to donate to the elderly in our local community. Students, faculty, and staff, are asked please bring their Eagle ID.

For additional information on the event, please contact the Office of Student Activities at

(As you get into the holiday spirit, please consider pulling a tag from GSU’s Holiday Helper Tree, too!)
