    Definitely don't change the name. Not a good (or necessary) idea.
    That's not what he meant. The USG designates us as a regional university and not a research university. That means they don't have to give us the same resources and funding that schools like Georgia State get even though we're doing the same educational work. Almost every independent educational accounting body ranks Georgia Southern alongside Georgia State but the USG refuses to give us our due. We can keep the name, we just need the regents to stop playing games and pretending that we aren't a major player in Georgia's higher education system.
    A successful program requires quality coaches. Help us keep ours.

    Definitely missed what he was saying here. He wasn't calling for a name change -- just a change in our classification within the University system of Georgia.

    Apologies.

    I definitely misunderstood.

    I am definitely not a fan of the BOR and their stunts. I was not familiar with this one..

    Unfortunately, I think the BOR situation is unlikely to change anytime soon.

    The state of GA govt is the problem here. They just don't care a single whit about anything in the state outside of metro Atlanta and Athens. I discovered how bad this was when a major manufacturer wanted to move here a few years back. Would have brought @1000 jobs. I was so excited, I called my county commissioner and we talked about an incentive package. Our county scraped together $10 million. I asked how much the state was willing to kick in... His response was $0..... (Guess where that manufacturer moved.... Not GA.) Savannah appears to be perfectly situated to have major auto manufacturers in that area. Every single one of them went to SC, Alabama or Tenn (except Kia.) There's a reason for that-it's our incompetent state govt.

    This state really had some messed up govt on many levels.

    any chance the new president will redesignate the 'Armstrong campus' to 'Savannah campus'? it'll help everyone unfamiliar with the merge better understand where it's located. i'm not sure why it was designated that in the first place.

    It was named the Armstrong Campus because the Armstrong members on the merger committee threw a b**** fit, and they all agreed to name it that to “preserve the Armstrong legacy.” It most likely won’t be changed.

    Maybe 10 years from now when there may be some confusion about "what is Armstrong?", may just change it to GS Savannah campus, since IT IS GS!

    That’s what I’m thinking/hoping.

    I still call it “Armstrong State”.
