Board of Regents to vote on AASU name change

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The University System of Georgia Board of Regents will vote whether Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah will keep the Atlantic in its name, which was added 18 years ago. 

The Atlantic was added to the name in 1996 to play on the university's coastal location, but now with Armstrong already dropping the Atlantic in most of its advertising and publications, the school is telling the Board of Regents that the business community in Savannah and others would like to see the name shortened.
