Turn in 'tacky' for 'robust'

  • Follow Letters

It is difficult to remain aloof during the present controversy regarding the name chosen for the merged universities in Augusta.

I am not opposed to change, but let’s face it – “Georgia Regents University” is a tacky name. Why not avoid the expense of the lawsuit being brought by a Virginia university over a trademark infringement? Too much already has been spent (i.e., the nationwide and statewide study that was completely ignored).

Rather than a tacky name, why not a robust name? I suggest that the Board of Regents revisit their choice, and name the merged universities Georgia University – Augusta.

William A. Speir, M.D.

M.D. and William A. Speir

M.D. and William A. Speir, I would say because there's already a University of Georgia and ASU is not part of it.

Why does the Chronicle describe MD. and PhD holders that way? Shouldn't it be William A. Speir, MD? Or John Smith, PhD?
