Augusta can handle five years of explosive growth and I wouldn't mind the effects... Richmond County is leading the CSRA in new commercial permits and several projects haven't even started yet... Imagine the growth when the Flowing Wells Business Park, 25 acre shopping center on Jimmie Dyess, Shops at Dyess Park, strip center replacing the gas station on Washington rd next to Zaxby's, and Sprint Food & Metro Market all break ground this year...

Highland Ridge and the Carmax area will add new buildings to the developments sooner or later too....

Where pray tell does one think the funding for something of this magnitude would come from? Most A&M schools are land grant colleges and Georgia already has one. Agricultural schools aren't what they once were. Many have converted into other types of colleges and greatly expanded their teachings.

Georgia already has an agriculture college (ABAC) and a regional research university whose primary mission is agriculture (Georgia Southern) in addition to the land-grant mission of the state's largest university, UGA.

I know this is a spinoff but look at the facts.... I think the new university will be called Georgia Arts and Medicine University..... It covers all fields of study..... Georgia A&M University..... Its catchy and bold.....

I'm sure both the leaders of GHSU and ASU have some names in mind.. They do plan to keep MCG as the medical school, and Jags will continue to be the mascot of the univeristy..

I like the name University of Augusta... GHSU spent a little over one hundred thousand on signage and stopped, because they learned about the possibility of the merger..

Yes it did, it was my understanding that the college did not know the merger would occur.... it is sort of a waste of funds... The state has a habit of doing things and keeping this side of I-285 in the shadows......

Thankfully, those plastic "Look we have a new name" and "GHSU" signs can be removed without any hard labor lol
