Seniors Reminisce: President S. Georgia Nugent

Georgia Nugent

The Nuge: Most remembered for her amazing and wide array of purple clothing.

Senior year is weird. One minute you’re a child, lost in the big world of Gambier, and the next you’re looking back and saying, “Hey, things have changed slightly? Were they always this way? No, I guess not.” And then judging younger people for not knowing the same things we do. But one of the biggest changes in the past four years? The passing of the presidential torch from S. Georgia Nugent to Sean Decatur. Here, we have some seniors give their thoughts on our former president.

Annaliese Milano ’16

She had some really atrocious purple Ugg boots that I once saw her in at the Post Office. It was the dead of winter, but I don’t think that makes it ok?

Anonymous Senior ’16

She had dead, very dead eyes and tried to sell us all of her purple things when she left. I don’t really remember/miss her. Please don’t put my name on that.

Matthew Delbridge ’16

She was a distant and cold monarch who reigned from afar instead of the kind, personal rule of King D-Cat.
Claire Berman ’16
I didn’t mind her as much as everyone else seems to? I mean, I think she was checked out a little when it came to campus, but she was nice to me the one time I talked to her at Midnight Breakfast and I appreciated how into Dancing With the Kenyon Stars she was.
Regardless of our personal feelings, we at The Thrill wish the Nuge well in her new position as Interim President at the College of Wooster!

  1. And she kept the college going strongly through one of the worst financial debacles in modern times without laying off staff, cutting pay, or cutting programs.

  2. there was a life-size cardboard cutout of her at the bookstore! she’s part elf! her stroll down middle path was reminiscent of that jaunty leonardo dicaprio meme! all hail the reign of Sweet Georgia Nuge.
