If you haven't already figured it out, this is our annual College Issue. While mainly intended for entering freshmen or for students transferring to a Savannah college or university for the first time, we like to think there's plenty of enjoyable and informative content in here for any active person in town.

In any case, it's certainly material you won't get from any other media outlet in town, whether print or broadcast or online.

Gracing our cover this week is the work of local photographer Carly Jurach, who regular readers will remember from our cover story on her recent "Where the Winged Things Are" exhibit at Muse Arts Warehouse.

Her models for this cover shoot are Cooper Westbrook and Madeline O'Hara.

I want to point out a small change from College Issues of years past. Previously we have made them fairly specifically school-based, i.e., a story about SCAD, a story about Savannah Tech, a story about AASU, etc. This year we've opted for a more broad-based, lifestyle-oriented approach which is more evenly directed at students of any and all local schools.

And the list of colleges and universities with a Savannah presence is quite impressive. Here they are in alphabetical order: Armstrong Atlantic State University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Georgia Tech, Saint Leo University, Savannah College of Art & Design, Savannah State University, Savannah Technical College, South University, Strayer University, Troy University, and the University of Phoenix.

The Bulldogs even have a presence in the forms of the University of Georgia Marine Extension Service on Skidaway Island, with its Marine Education Center and Aquarium, and the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens on the southside. Both are open to the public.

With no further adieu, check out all the content in our College Issue:

    Oddly enough, if you want to piss people off, tell them a hurricane is probably not going to hit them.

  • Editor's Note: Notes from the Stormwatch

    I constantly have to remind myself these days that there is a huge influx of new arrivals to the Savannah area. Many of them don't really find out until they get here that we have things like cockroaches, mosquitoes, gnats, ungodly humidity -- and hurricanes.

  • Editor's Note: Selling out a Historic Landmark District

    The City of Savannah is continuing to sell off key historic assets in the name of development — even as our symbolically and economically crucial National Historic Landmark District status is threatened.
