Didn't see this one coming....

The consolidation would make the new institution the largest within the state’s system of public colleges and universities with almost 54,000 students. The move would also be notable for its joining of Georgia State, a four-year research institution with Georgia Perimeter, a two-year access institution.

The guy that loves to talk crap about GSU just might explode.

I hope so too, particularly this side of Atlanta. The Perimeter name around here has acquired some erm...bad press as of late from the Newton campus.

I pretty sure the Georgia State name will be kept. GSU has been around since 1913, while GPC has only been here since 1964 and is a 2-year community college.

Really, GPC should merge with Metropolitan Atlanta, those schools are more alike.
