Students in Statesboro to be offered tools for financial assistance

April 10, 2016 by  

Georgia State University on Statesboro has recently been awarded a grant of $2 million by the SunTrust Foundation to establish the SunTrust Student Financial Management Center.

This facility will help students tackle any financial issues they may encounter while pursuing their degrees.

According to William H. Rogers, Jr., CEO and Chairman of SunTrust, the company is dedicated to providing tools that enable people to reach their financial goals and considers earning a degree as one of the most important first steps. The new center will help students who are at risk financially and provide them with support so they will be better able to meet their expenses for all their years in college.

Vice Provost and Vice President for Enrollment Services at Georgia State, Timothy Renick, added that the SunTrust Foundation’s backing will be important in helping the students in the college to graduate, as it will enable the college to look at innovative ways to find the root of problems students face in time to assist them.

Georgia State could use brochures to explain the services that the new center will offer. Financial mentors, together with staff at the center, will develop outreach programs and provide financial guidance to low-income families. These services will be available online and over the phone after regular campus hours.

Gift tree lights up in Statesboro

November 16, 2015 by  

The Holiday Helper Tree Drive is currently underway at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro.

The drive involves a large tree, sponsored by the Office of Leadership and Community Engagement and located in the Russell Union, with over 750 tags, each with the name, gender, age, and a wish for a gift for someone in need. This could be a child, an adult, or a senior citizen living in nursing homes. People in the college community are encouraged to select a tag and purchase and wrap their gift, which is then delivered to the individual.

Community engagement graduate assistant, James Thomas, commented that this is an important event as it emphasizes the spirit of both the university and community of Statesboro, as well as that of the holiday season. It shows that the University has compassion for those in need in the community and helps to bring the community and the University together, Thomas adds.

Holiday Helper Tree Founder, Eileen Smith, added that there are many in need in the community and the University is happy to contribute during this time of the year.

The Tree Drive will run until November 20, with gifts being distributed beginning on December 1. Holiday cards may be printed and sent to the college community reminding them of the tree and how its mission can make the holiday season brighter for those in need.
