'Regents' name meaningless

  • Follow Letters

Augusta State University is an important part of the city, and should represent Augusta by having its name involved.

I have lived in Augusta for the majority of my life, and like to have pride in the fact that I go to a school that is named after it. We, as a school, do not know anything about the Board of Regents, and personally, I am ashamed to potentially attend a school that is glorifying a board of people I know nothing about.

Money obviously has spoken in this situation. I just wish it didn’t have to affect two sets of student bodies and their future education.

Thank you

Ms. Carroll is rightfully concerned about attending “a school that is glorifying a board of people I know nothing about.” The self-aggrandizement of the regents, their vanity, their narcissism is what makes the new name so ugly. We do know something about them. We know they have no expertise in the area of higher education. We know they contribute large sums of money to the governor's campaign fund. We know they have big egos.
