    Gary May or Condoleezza Rice would be excellent choices.

    Condi would do well. Dr. May would be a train wreck.

    It's fun to belittle UGA engineering but there's no reason to think they're only going to get stronger and stronger as the alumni base gets deeper. Regardless of how or why their rise in academic standing is going to rub off on their fledgling undergraduate engineering school.

    All those resources should be at Kennesaw State/SPSU.

    Why would Dr. May be a train wreck?

    This 30k enrollment number includes online graduate courses, which drives up both the graduate number and the % out of state.

    Georgia residents make up 62% of the incoming freshman class, which is typical of undergrad enrollment.

    Yes, I was pleasantly surprised to see him. Choice and Burton were a couple of seats over as well.

    They got rid of the quesadilla explosion salad? Seriously? That along with the buffalo chicken salad were my two mainstays, a decade ago when I used to go to Chilis. The one at Lindbergh I used to go to got a lot worse and I stopped going.

    Since the stars are almost completely aligned on North Avenue and I've gotten most of what I wanted in my FB/AD wish list ... I'm going to keep to form in the hopes of all the stars aligning:

    President Wish List:
    - Mandatory: Ethics reforms
    - Mandatory: Strong political relationship builder to be able to carve away at the UGAg control of the GABOR
    - Mandatory: Strong financial credentials including fundraising and management (keeping costs to attend low)
    - Priority: Expansionist agenda with the online "world campus" offerings and creating new global satellite campuses
    - Priority: Will view the long term positive health of the athletics mission as a tool for recruitment, a means to stay connected on a fundraising basis with alumni, a way to extend the brand into every household, and in the best academic interests of the Institute in the long term. A GTAA that has an endowment that covers all operational costs is a GTAA that no longer has to have big student athletic fees or subsidies from the academic side. But let's be real here ... we need to understand that a full modernization of the GTAA including all facilities and retiring all debt and fully endowing operational costs is about a billion dollar undertaking. But if you get a President who says the right things and stops the self inflicted excessive and pointless academic wounds and starts pushing for increased endowments and performance from both the athletic and academic side ... give Stansbury some leash to get creative financially (naming rights to venues etc) ... hit up the big money alumni and big dollar pro alumni ... with all the other things aligned so nicely ... I think you can shake the money tree and get your billion dollars over 10-20 years or so. It can be done.
    - Priority: Will deal with the things we all know GT doesn't do a good job at and, in at least some cases as we've recently discovered, that's due to graft and corruption. The usual stuff: dining, mental health services, a stockade outside the Edge Center to pillory kamikaze scooter riders, dorms, making parking a priority in the long term campus plan, etc.

    Most of the names being discussed by students look like a social justice wish list of millennials. The former Vassar President? Give me a break. Dumb list is dumb.

    Students at a College/University/Institute put way too much importance on their opinion. You are there for 4 years. There have been many tens of thousands of graduates before you, there will be many tens of thousands of graduates after you. The decision needs to be the best for the Institute. It isn't a social platform.

    I don't have any comment on your overall points, but just wanted to note that to fully endow all the GTAA's operational costs would actually require $2.4 bil. Total operating costs for the GTAA in 2017 was $72 mil. Of course, to be fair, that's not something any program in the country does or is even trying to do. We do still sell tickets, get conference distributions, etc.
