Survey results will select new logo and colors for GRU

 Officials planning the consolidation of Augusta’s two state universities are seeking input on selecting the new school’s logo and color scheme.

More than 46,000 people – alumni, staffers and students – were sent surveys by e-mail Friday, asking them to select, from the choices given, a logo, colors and a seal for Georgia Regents University.

The school – a consolidation of Augusta State University and Georgia Health Sciences University – is expected to be approved by the Georgia Board of Regents on Jan. 8.

David L. Brond, the senior vice president of communications and marketing at GHSU, said the survey results will carry 100 percent of the weight in deciding the final designs and colors.

Each of the three logo designs incorporate “GRU” and “Augusta” in the design. The survey also offered two options for color schemes, each including the current shade of blue used by ASU.

“The secondary colors are either going to be a silver gray or a red,” depending on survey results, Brond said.

He said the survey was done “in-house” using online marketing tools, so there were no additional costs involved.

“This was not something we wanted to have a market research firm do,” he said.

Brond said the survey will be completed Wednesday and results will be announced no later than Thursday.

“Whichever one has the most votes, then that’s the one that will be selected,” Brond said.

We need an anti-survey. Yep

We need an anti-survey. Yep that's the ticket let's make our own survey. Get about every Georgian we can find to participate and then send the results to Azzizzzz, Regents, and Govenor. Let them know how the citizens feel about their childish antics.

Azzzzzzzzzzzz and name changes

Azzzzzzzzzzz and his name change campaign for the sake of changing the name is very expensive, but budget constraints are causing layoffs at MCG. This is total and absolute BS.

Who are the geniuses allowing him to do this.

Color and logo

I suggest the second color be blood red and the logo be a bedpan.

Who cares? They lost all of my support as an alumnus when they changed from MCG. I somehow never received any surveys seeking my opinion on any of the other changes, I'm not betting them farm on getting this one either. The ones looking for donations, now those I get.

Why not just ask Der Fuehrer?

Everyone knows how this will end. Those who are foolish enough to think that the results of the survey will have any effect will submit their choices, and then our leader will tell us what we really wanted "at the end of the day."
There is already a perfectly good logo, it looks like the A on the basketball court at Christenberry. And it is not the logo of a regional satellite campus which is what that little man seeking "lebensraum" has in mind.

I thought y'all knew.

I thought y'all knew. Progressive are banning the ice cream because we are a nation of fatties. After some geneology studies I find many family members died of cancer but some also of heart disease. So I 'm going to gain 75 pounds and hope that heart disease kills me before cancer-brilliant strategy no???? Pass the Cherry Garcia-and I'll be truckin'. Need to take up the weed too I guess to help with the munchies-yeah I know smoking may cause cancer too. I should be a whale in no time and drop dead walking to work-better than lanquishing in hospital in pain for prolonged periods.

Bizkit's Comments

Thanks for the 10:00 comment, made me laugh! I, also, think the color of yellow would be suitable, but I was thinking of chicken "poop" yellow................

Who's The Boss?

Techfan, I see you are upset about this, so, just realize this is the local level of "do what I say, whether you like it or not"!!

Participation in whose survey? ...

I visited the survey site and scrolled through several pages. When I clicked the last "Next" button, I received a message: "Thank you for your participation" (or words to that effect). I didn't select anything. The choices were like the lesser of three evils. The seal looked sterile without any reference to Augusta's college and university past. I favor the principle of the consolidation of the schools. Both 1828 and 1925 need to appear on the seal. GRU does not need to appear at all.

I agree with most of the comments; this survey is another sham.

ignore it

If the public ignores "voting" for the new GRU logo and colors, it might send two messages to the powers that be: 1) the public still does not like the name, 2) the public thinks the powers that be will do what they want regardless of what the public votes for. Sometimes the best thing is to do nothing.
