SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Georgia Southern University hosted its “Celebrate Together” event on the Savannah Armstrong Campus ahead of Homecoming.

Organizers say they’re happy to be back together after a year away due to the pandemic.

Thursday’s event boasted a dunk tank, rock wall, mechanical bull, archery tag, animals, music and more for students and faculty to enjoy.

Even the university’s president stepped up to the dunk tank.

“Particularly, as we tie it into all of our homecoming festivities, it was important for us to bring it back out, coming out of the delta variant and COVID, we knew we could do it here on this beautiful, sunny day,” said President Kyle Marrero.
