Georgia Regents University of

Georgia Regents University of Augusta should not be the compromise unless they want people to be even more angry.

Huh?

Azziz was the one shoving this down our throats, and now he wants to be a part of the conversation on a name compromise? Interesting.

If they do indeed choose the horrid Georgia Regents University at Augusta, it could set off a flood of copycat requests: Georgia Regents University at Carrollton; Georgia Regents University at Columbus; Georgia Regents University at Americus; Georgia Regents University at Valdosta; Georgia Regents University at, well, you get the picture. It doesn't make sense to have only one. The "at" implies there are more Regents universities than one.

As horrid as it still is,

It must be a tough pill to swallow for Azziz and the regents to add Augusta to the name.

It's a stupid name
Unpublished

Georgia Regents University Augusta looks like we're a branch campus of a larger Georgia Regents University system.

Also say GRUA out loud. Then chant it like you would at a basketball game. It sounds like you're vomiting. Won't it be nice to see the GRUA student body on national tv making dry-heave sounds when we one day have Division I basketball team? That would be so totally classy. . if you're Honey Boo-Boo.
