What about these options?

I have two thoughts on the current discussions about the name for the newly combined Georgia Health Sciences University and Augusta State University.

First, since opposition centers on the absence of our city’s name, why not consider a solution already in use all over the country by simply applying the city name to a newly constructed component of a University System – in our case, the University of Georgia at Augusta?

If there is some administrative barrier to this, or if it stirs up new controversies, consider another possibility: We’re not the only city in the state to face the problem of merged schools. Perhaps Augusta would accept “Georgia Regents University at Augusta” as one of a new group of institutions within the University System.
