Georgia Southern University biologists quantify campus biodiversity

Squirrels and robins are a common sight on almost any college campus. But is the park-like landscape of a campus actually a good habitat for wildlife? How many other species live in the fields, forests and waters of a university campus? Faculty and students at Georgia Southern University have just completed a two-year study to answer these questions.

A Position of Leadership

On Sept. 15, Gov. Nathan Deal appointed Col. Randall Simmons ('95) to the position of Assistant Adjutant General-Army and Commander of the Georgia Army National Guard. He ensures the readiness of all Georgia Army National Guard units - some 11,000 citizen-soldiers who train in armories and regional facilities across the state. "I'm very humbled by the opportunity,” said Simmons. "One thing the Georgia Guard takes a lot of pride in is that we are a national leader in readiness."

The Power of Memory

Georgia Southern's Lori Amy, a professor in writing and linguistics, earned a Fulbright Scholar Award to research violence as a public health issue. She chose Albania, a country that despite picturesque coastlines, a deep cultural history spanning thousands of years and a vast amount of mineral resources houses a mostly poor population - one of the poorest in Europe - that is traumatized from its violent history. And it was this history, and the stories behind it, that gripped her interest.
