Breaking from the Marietta Daily Journal is that Kennesaw State University will be merging with Southern Polytechnic State University aka Southern Poly.
Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic State University will consolidate to form a new institution to be named Kennesaw State University. The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia will be asked by Chancellor Hank Huckaby to approve the consolidation plan during a meeting on November 12-13 in Atlanta. This merger is the latest in a series of cost-cutting moves made by the Governor and the Board of Regents.
I believe this now leaves Georgia Regents University with the undisputed title holder of Dumbest Name for a University in the state. Their abbreviations also happens to be the main character from the movie Despicable Me. I have to admit, when going to gru.edu I thought I was going to learn how to be a supervillan and steal the pyramids.
