We have some exiting news to share! Now Open and Available to Georgia Southern Students, The Dean’s Pantry! According to a recent study 1 in 5 College students are unsure of when they will have their next meal, and 38% of students reported that food insecurities have lead to decreased performance in their studies. The College of Behavioral & Social Sciences is here to help. Located in Veazey Hall, outside of the Dean’s Suite 2000, you will find The Dean’s Pantry. If you are a student or know of a student who is in need, please help yourself to an item or two. We understand and we care…Healthy food is not a luxury, it’s a necessity!
