Will all mergers be same?

  • Follow Letters

Having read Georgia Health Sciences University President Ricardo Azziz’s Aug. 13 blog entry, and noticing he mentioned having spent only about $300,000 on the Medical College of Georgia/GHSU name change:

Will the Board of Regents continue making mergers all around Georgia? If so, will each newly merged institution bear the name “Georgia Regents University”? If not, why not? If so, how will each new institution be distinguishable from the others bearing the same name?

If we must be saddled with this ridiculous name – and really, must we? – perhaps Augusta should be added. Preferably, change the name completely.

A horse of a different color

I think we should call the school: A Horse with No Name University because only in America (get it-I am punny). That way we can name all the schools in the university system a horse of a different color. Purple comes to mind, but UGA can have a two tone horse too. You get the feelin' that they spent all that money, meetings and man hours to make it look kosher while the conclusion was forgone-that happens a lot nowadays.
