A&M misleading

A&M in colleges traditionally stands for Agriculture and Mechanical. So it would be a very misleading name for an Arts/Medical Sciences school.
Still think University of Augusta is the classiest name that sounds big-time and emphasizes where it is more than the unspecific "Georgia."

University of Augusta,

University of Augusta, Augusta University or Augusta State University which I'm starting to think is more and more likely.

Riverman correctly pointed out that the poll yielded not much interest (judging by the number of votes). Also, the vast majority of the votes came from current GHSU students and others under their influence.

What Kind Of History Is In Georgia A&M?

Georgia Augusta Ga & Millageville Ga?

Georgia Augusta Ga & Savannah Ga?

Why not use Georgia A&L?

Georgia Augusta Ga & Lincolnton Ga?

After the first four State Capital cities names for the State of Georgia? Marthasville Ga renamed Atlanta Ga is the Fifth and current State Capital City.

MCG history started here in Augusta building on Greene Street in building that's still in utilization today. University Hospital can also share it's historical value history as well to this building. Called The Old MCG. From this building To What was Eugene Talmadge Memorial Hospital on 15th Street. To GHSU as to where it is today. Georgia A&M does not capture the hysterical value or the prestige of the city of Augusta Georgia. Nor does it catches the tradition and history of Augusta State University.
