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:

  • Editor's Note: After the utility bill fiasco, now what?

    Overarching this entire discussion is one of Savannah’s recurring themes: We are overly reliant on outside consultants to find problems and make the recommendations to move forward that we are already paying a City Manager and City staff to determine and execute.

  • Editor's Note: It’s not Jolene Byrne who needs to go

    On this issue, always keep this in mind: The rest of your elected School Board is essentially working to keep local students from being able to attend college. Their vendetta against the Board President has reached such a fever pitch that they hold every child in the district hostage to it.

  • ‘Thoughts and Prayers’

    It is very clear to me that the majority of elected and public officials who say 'Thoughts and Prayers' are neither deep thinkers nor praying people.
