Well Eagle nation, I know you missed me. It’s been a while since your fine-feathered fiend Gossip Gus has dished the dirt. I’ve been busy hunting down a story that you can really sink your fangs into.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been investigating something MAJOR. There’s so many changes happening around Georgia Southern. Earlier this month, two undeclared freshman students, Frankie Stein and Draculaura began a lengthy petition to establish a new program and college across all campuses.

Monsterology is near and dear to my heart,” Draculaura said in an exclusive sit-down.

“It would be voltageous for students to have a chance to learn more about the ghoolest creatures in the underworld,” Stein added.

Monsterology is just what the name implies: the intensive study of monster culture. In the past few years, the degree has had a resurgence across the country. Several highly accredited universities have begun to reintroduce the program.

“Centuries ago, my father studied Monsterology. Pretty much everyone in my family has,” Draculaura said. “My great great great grandfather would be so happy to see it reestablished.”

“He’s still alive,” she clarified.

After a long campaign, a grueling month of petitioning and a little magic; Georgia Southern has finally listened to what the students want and will be offering a BFA in Monsterology as early as next spring.

“I’m particularly excited for Werewolvian Literature,” sophomore Clawdeen said. “It’s going to be clawesome.”

“I hear they’re going to be offering a history class on The Great Gargoyle War,” Ghoulia Yelps told me.

I for one think that this new change will bring a lot more spirit to campus.

And who am I, you ask? That’s one secret I’ll never tell. Until next time.

You know you love me.

XOXO Gossip Gus.
