Stay loyal to our university

  • Follow Letters

Brad Usry’s letter (“Give GRU chance to grow,” Aug. 15) captured the importance of the decision to create another comprehensive research university, and what it will mean in economic growth in our area.

The Board of Regents demonstrated its commitment to the growth of this campus with the little-noticed announcement of $45 million to construct another cancer research building here, but the story was buried on back pages in very small print.

Years from now, graduates will be proud to note that they graduated from the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University. The college names within the university will remain the same. We have a statewide presence with students in Rome, Athens, Albany, Gainesville, Savannah and more, where many professionals are involved in teaching our students.

Let’s be loyal to the part of the university that we cherish, and do all we can to contribute to the vision that has been set before us.

Betty B. Wray, M.D.

Augusta

Then keep using the college

Then keep using the college names under the GRU umbrella, especially for sports.
(question for the Chronicle, why do names of writers with an MD appear in the title and "and M.D."?

So instead of the bait n'

So instead of the bait n' switch its the switch and bait? Dr. Wray, you treated me when I was a kid, but I'm afraid on this issue I'm going to have to ask for a second opinion.

Instead of changing all the stationary...

Why don't we just leave all the institutional names exactly as they are, and have GRU as a smaller, less obviously banner BELOW the names that they are now. And change everything at MCG back to being MCG. It would be nice to leave ASU as "aug.edu" and take MCG email back to "mcg.edu". What a huge relief that would be.

And everybody would be happy under the dubious banner of GRU.

Well, perhaps less furious.
