Looking at the letters abbreviating our new university – “GRU” – I had bells ring in my head. I read Tom Clancy novels, and have run across references to GRU many times. GRU is Russian military intelligence and ranks right up there with the KGB.
I realize that Georgia Health Sciences University President Ricardo Azizz and the University System Board of Regents are not well-enough-read to realize GRU is not what an American university wants for initials, but I would have thought someone would have caught this obvious blunder.
