Don't waste your time!! Axxix already has his empire planned. Just wish the Board of Regents or better yet the State would not put anymore money in his seemingly endless checkbook!!

Insider Information, you are 100% correct! There should have been public input before this merger was decided.
Decisions have already been made. This forum is a sham, only done to later say they sought public input.
This is a perfect example of the mismanagement this process has endured since the start.

Unpublished

The forum at ASU should really be a wake, mourning the death of ASU.
The forum at GHSU should be a party, celebrating the takeover of an entire university to use as it sees fit.

Don't waste your time with

Don't waste your time with the not-so-open forum. The big wigs at ASU (although they're not so big anymore) have been told what they can and cannot say at these "open" forums. The message to ASU is "Sit down and shut up. We will tell you what is going to happen and we will tell you what to think about what is going to happen."
