    Savannah campus has a great future. There was always going to be bumps in the road on this transition.
    +1. Everyone knew the "adjustment period" would take time, in 4-5 years with new students coming on board, this will all settle down. I said this when all this crap started to go down, I feel bad for the kids who went/are there now to Armstrong State University, the BOR kicked them in the groan, hard. The wound hasn't had time to heal. In 4-10 years GS will have campus on the sight of the old Armstrong State and Liberty. The "flagship" campus will be Statesboro. I also feel bad for the employees from both Armstrong and GS that got "wacked/lost their jobs" because of this. I still strongly feel that this should have never happened. But what is done, is done. Time for GS to go on and continue to be a great University, offering students opportunities for a top notch education on our home campus and our adjacent campuses. Like it or not this is the "NEW GS"

    But I agree with Pirate and have said all along that this merger isn't going to put any more life into the Savannah campus and will in fact do the opposite. If the Savannah oligarchs are really the ones that pushed for this merger than they might've screwed up. The enrollment numbers for this fall will tell the story.
    Not true. I'd wait till at least Fall 2019 before making that claim. It's almost universal that enrollment drops the year following a consolidation for a lot of reasons I don't have time to name now.

    Apparently, the Statesboro campus is old news and the only potential left for GS is in the Armstrong campus
    This is garbage after a few years most if not all of the students will have lost all Armstrong pride as all new students will be enrolling to be a Georgia Southern student. In time most will not even realize they are are attending what use to be a different school unless they pass by some statue or monument and actually read it. Faculty move on as well so I never take them to seriously they are rarely long term stakeholders and move on the the BBD as fast as any other profession. Bottom line any new people will have less emotion tied to what was a second tier regional school with DIV II sports. Last whimpers of a dead university, just let them whine for a bit and get to the last stage of grief. It was a move to save money just like all the other mergers, not to shift GS to Sav. I get how this is hard for existing students and some alums that actually stayed involved but you have two choices stay mad or embrace it. Staying mad will only affect you though.

    It will be Chapter 1 of the story.

    Always will have bumps and adjustments, but things should improve over time. If enrollment at Armstrong campus is down 30% or 40% as suggested by others, I'll eat my hat. Sounds like some Armstrong professors that have their feelings hurt.

    I could be wrong, but I assume the admission standards for the Armstrong campus will change to be more aligned with GS’s standards. After looking at past freshmen acceptance rates, for the two campuses, I would think it would be inevitable for us to experience a natural decline in incoming freshmen at that campus.

    I heard that admission standards for the new GSU were lowered to be more inline with Armstrong's

    Liberty Campus Admissions

    The Office of Admissions can admit new freshmen to the Liberty Campus as long as they have earned a high school diploma. However, if students are admitted without meeting the admission criteria listed above for the Statesboro and Liberty Campuses, they must complete thirty or more credit hours with a cumulative 2.0+ GPA and make up and Required High School Curriculum deficiencies before transitioning from Liberty to another Georgia Southern campus. Please contact the Admissions Counselor for the Liberty Campus to learn more.

    We will almost surely have to admit students we wouldn't admit before the merger to keep the enrollment up. To study on the main campus they might have to have an SAT or ACT in the usual range, though.
    Don't choose to be annoyed. Choose to be amused.

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    So we now own East Georgia (South)? I do actually get it. I have a feeling that the Liberty Campus has a higher percentage of non-traditional students, and what they have learned about life might outweigh the discrepancies in their transcripts.

    Isn't the Liberty campus mainly for Military to get college while serving? Goes along way with promotion points for enlisted.
