The president of Georgia Southern University formally addressed students for the first time on Wednesday night.

Dr. Jaimie Hebert took office in July and delivered his first State of the University address during a public meeting of the Student Government Association. He talked about his first impressions of the university and where he wants to see it go.

"I'm impressed with our history. I'm impressed with our mission. But I'm most impressed with our people,” said Dr. Hebert.

He and various vice presidents answered student questions. One asked about an incident at Georgia Southern's football game involving the alleged assault of a Savannah State cheerleader. President Hebert said it remains under investigation and the university was communicating with Savannah State on the matter.
