Military science building opens at Georgia Southern University

32,000-square-foot facility provides a new home for the university's ROTC program.

Georgia Southern University has opened a new military science building on its campus in Statesboro.

The university says the 32,000-square-foot space replaces a 10,000-square-foot building that housed the university's Army ROTC Eagle Battalion for nearly a decade.

The new Military Science building consists of four classrooms, a modern computer lab, conference room with video conferencing capabilities, offices, and a 5,000 square-foot multipurpose room for events and ceremonies.

“Georgia Southern is proud to open this special place where the mission reflects the very culture of this University, a culture that puts student success above all else,” says University President Jaimie Hebert.

The state allocated $9.5 million to the university in 2014 to build the facility.

The Georgia Southern Army ROTC Eagle Battalion program is the largest of its kind in the southeast United States, with 175 cadets at the university. The program is one of few ROTC programs in the country to meet or exceed the required number of Army Commissioned Officers over the last decade.
