Desperately seeking student

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - December 13, 2012

Georgia Southern would also like to win over a student.

Officials of the Statesboro, Georgia, college say they have students from 49 of the 50 states.

But as marketing director Casey Jones says, "North Dakota. Zero. Goose egg."

School officials say they're not trying to steal any high school seniors from North Dakota.

But the Georgia Southern boosters note it's 11 degrees in Fargo, North Dakota, while it's 68 in Statesboro.

Need more convincing?

Georgia Southern students are walking to finals in flip-flops and shorts.
