How about this for a name?

  • Follow Letters

The merger between Augusta State University and the former Medical College of Georgia, now Georgia Health Sciences University, has evoked a controversy between the school and Augusta commissioners. It seems that commissioners want our city’s name retained in the new title, but school officials maintain that the university should reflect the state’s name.

My suggestion: Name the school the Medical Health and Sciences University at Augusta, Georgia! In future actions, should the school grow and spread to other Georgia municipalities, they simply name those other locales the Medical Health and Sciences University at Athens, or the Medical Health and Sciences University at Atlanta, etc.

C’mon, folks – just git ’er done!

"The Augusta marriage

"The Augusta marriage (university consolidation) is a friendly one, arranged by local leaders who believe one medium-size university will give the city more heft than two small ones." from a Walter C. Jones article from May 14th.

.... I, personally would like to know WHO arranged it. I could care less what they end up calling it.

Still like GULAS-Georgia

Still like GULAS-Georgia University of Liberal Arts and Science. It's exactly what it is-and odd mix of goulash. It will always be MCG to me, but times change.

What about Medical Uiversity

What about Medical Uiversity of Ga. and leave Augusta State alone? Why punish Augusta State because they are in the same town?

Times do not always change

Times do not always change for the better. See the last 3 plus years, for example.

Wasted money

and all that money that has to be spent to change all the names! The one for MCG (yep I like the old name too!) has to be spent twice - could not make up their mind the first time. Why can't they leave well enough alone when it all was working just fine. I despise all those abbreviations - reminds me of the Army!
