With their original name -- Georgia Regents University -- for the entity that emerged from the combination of Georgia Health Sciences University and Augusta State University having angered just about everyone, the state's Board of Regents took another shot at it Thursday, voting to call the institution Georgia Regents University Augusta. Regent University, in Virginia, sued over what it said would be confusion caused by the name. Closer to home, though, advocates for Augusta State complained that the new name ignored their historic affiliation with the institution, and urged reconsideration. On Thursday, the regents did just that, adding the city's name to the new institution's.
