It seems to me that things have reached the basement of society since GRU President Ricardo Azziz was put in the position as a puppet for the University System of Georgia Board of Regents. Azziz was brought in to oversee the merging of the two universities in Augusta – Augusta State University and the Medical College of Georgia (which, by the way, was renamed immediately by Azziz to Georgia Health Sciences University).
If you’re thinking that I’m just a sore loser because the new name for the universities doesn’t have “Augusta” in the name, then you are absolutely correct. I don’t like the GRU name. I have family members who graduated from Augusta College, Augusta State and MCG, but because of the puppet Azziz, the Augusta name probably is gone forever at those institutions.
Let’s change the name to the University of Augusta and get rid of Azziz.
