Much about GS-Armstrong merger yet to be decided
Current athletes to keep scholarships, Savannah likely to keep nursing
Georgia Southern University President Jaimie Hebert and Armstrong State University President Linda M. Bleicken, left, chuckle before answering a question from a student about whether or not his Georgia Southern food plan card would work in Savannah and Statesboro during Thursday's town hall meeting at the Performing Arts Center to discuss the consolidation of Georgia Southern and Armstrong.
After its consolidation with Armstrong State University, the expanded Georgia Southern University will honor the scholarships of Armstrong student athletes, the two universities' presidents said Thursday. Also, Armstrong's nursing program has important support for remaining in Savannah. But whether Georgia Southern's nursing classes could move there as well has yet to be considered.
