Alabama:
The University of Alabama system adds two campuses and loses one.
The University of Montevallo (DII, my alma mater) becomes UA-Montevallo.
Alabama State University becomes UA-Montgomery.
The University of Alabama @ Birmingham becomes its own entity, completely independent of the University of Alabama system and is renamed the Alabama Institute of Technology (this is different from Auburn's old name which was the Alabama Polytechnic Institute.) *However, the medical school at the campus formerly known as UAB is shared jointly by UA system and the new AIT.
Alabama A&M University becomes AU-Huntsville.
Jacksonville State University becomes AU-Anniston.
West Alabama becomes UA-Livingston.
UM: UA-Montevallo
ASU: UA-Montgomery
UWA: UA-Livingston
UAB: AIT
AAMU: AU-Huntsville
JSU: AU-Anniston


I would merge Alabama A&M and UAH as "Alabama Tech" (AIT). AU-Montgomery and Troy-Montgomery would be folded into Alabama State. The pork fat that is Athens State, and whatever JUCO it hooked up with, would become part of AIT or just simply be closed.

Jacksonville State would become East Alabama. Troy would be Troy, simply because they have enough lobbyists in Montgomery to keep it that way.

Montevallo would become Central Alabama.

Not that I prefer it, but UNA could become Northwest Alabama, JSU could become Northeast Alabama, South Alabama could become Southwest Alabama, and Troy could become Southeast Alabama. That would leave West Alabama by itself, but of course Auburn is the original East Alabama.

University Campus Ideas (Part 2)

NEBRASKA

The following “city name” State Colleges become Campuses of Nebraska State U.:

Others

Midland Lutheran: Nebraska-Fremont
Nebraska Wesleyan: Nebraska State-Lincoln
Creighton: Nebraska Tech-Omaha
Hastings: Nebraska-Hastings
Bellevue: Nebraska-Bellevue
Grace: Nebraska State-Omaha
Doane: Nebraska-Doane or Nebraska-Crete
Dana: Nebraska-Dana or Nebraska-Blair
Union: Nebraska Tech-Lincoln



You forgot Concordia University of Seward.

All of those are religiously affiliated, most Lutheran and and Methodist schools. Bellevue U, I believe, is not affiliated with any church. Nebraska Wesleyan is a Methodist university and among those state named Midwestern "Wesleyans" (Dakota Wesleyan, Kansas Wesleyan, Iowa Wesleyan, Illinois Wesleyan, Indiana Wesleyan, Ohio Wesleyan). Midland Lutheran and Dana are both affiliated with the ECLA Lutheran Church and Concordia is one of a number of Luthern Church Missouri Synod Churchs (there's one in Ann Arbor, MI, River Forest, IL, Milwaukee, WI area, Austin, TX, Portland, OR, Selma, AL and one in Alberta Canada, I believe.

Union College is Seventh Day Adventist. There are a number of Union College's in the nation, all affiliated with the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

None of these would ever become state affiliated, except for maybe Bellevue. Doane is affiliated with the United Church of Christ, but that school seems to have a number of foreign students who come to learn to prepare for the TOEFL exam, so it could be more open to a state affiliation, but not likely.

Dana College is the almater of the late former US Senator of Illinois and 1988 Democratic Presidential Candidate Paul Simon ("The Bow Tie", but not the famous singer-songwriter).

Hastings College is affiliated with the Presbytarian Church and is the undergraduate almater of U.S. Congressman Dr. Thomas Osborne (R-NE 3rd District)/former University of Nebraska head football coach (1973-1997 -- College Football Hall of Fame) and current candidate for Governor of Nebraska.

Ncaanopaawaa2000, you want to turn all colleges and universities into Louisiana style, hyphenated names (La-Monroe/LA-Lafayette? It is confusing to some even in Louisiana much less the whole country. Really, I am not trying to be critical, just not clear on your point. Do you believe most current names are inappropriate? I gather you seek designs by location under the umbrella of master schools. There are quite a few private schools listed that would not like to see their namesakes dropped to be replaced and distinguished by the towns/cities in which they are located. Ever been to Due West, South Carolina? It is hardly more than a stoplight, if that?

Obviously you spent considerable time on this, and many posts are dream type threads. It does pose the idea that {some} schools could improve their identity/names.

Actually, for state universities, especially when the University of Michigan and Michigan State University are taken (or insert state name for Michigan there) I think a one word name is simple and works well. Purdue, Rutgers, Auburn, Clemson, Temple, Marshall and Lamar I think sound simple and can build a nice academic image with the one-word name.

This hyphenated name gets clunky. Only UCLA, UAB, UNLV and maybe UIC don't sound clunky. If its a state university in a city, drop the "State" like Memphis did.

I may be incorrect on this, but didn't Kent State briefly change its name to the University of Kent and then back to Kent State? The sad event on the campus during the Vietnam War era may have played a factor in this.

Maybe someone from Ohio knows better than I, but I believe that Kent State has always been officially called Kent State. I think people simply dropped the "State" in their name in a collaquial way, so it was simplier. Actually, Bowling Green State University, which shares a very similar history and role to that of Kent State (as well as similar type of location, small town near a midmajor metro city -- Akron/Kent = Toledo/Bowling Green) also does the same thing. Many people simply refer to BGSU as "Bowling Green", but I believe it too has always officially been named Bowling Green State University. I think they also do this so they sound simple like Miami U (OH) and Ohio U.

OK, Dogs N' Thingys. I'll be sincere with you about this.

a.) As long as the state education system of Louisiana decides a "main campus" for the University of Louisiana (either Lafayette or Monroe), things will work out right. It's a near-similar case with California State University, which some of its schools' names expressed as "Cal State-Fresno" and YET the university system of Cal State U. couldn't decide which one would be its main campus. Some say that San Jose State U. should be the main campus (a.k.a. Cal State U.-San Jose" in my view) because of its length of time since the late 1800s. the same goes for San Diego State U. (a.k.a. Cal State U.-San Diego" in my view) and San Francisco State U. (a.k.a. Cal State U.-San Francisco" in my view).

Long Beach State U., Fresno State U. and Sacramento State U. have a "Neutral" style of name either if its "city name" State U. or "state name" State U.-"city name".

b.) All I want is the ones who have different names that should have them changed under these formats:

"region name" U. = U. of "state name"-"city name"
"city name" U. = "state name" State U.-"city name"
"city name" U. = U. of "state name"-"city name"
"state name" College = U. of "state name"-"city name" or "state name" State U.-"city name"

P.S.: Who was Texas Western College? And Dogs N' Thingys, I never heard of Due West, S.C. before; to be sincere about it.

Actually, I believe the Cal State University system is designed to not have a flagship campus. Technically the University of California no longer has Berkeley designated as the lone flagship, as all 8 UC campuses are now recognized as flagships, if I am not mistaken. UC Berkeley, however, is universally recognized by many in the state and outside as the historical flagship and historical origins of the University of California system. Also, San Diego State University, San Jose State University and Humboldt State University are a part of the Cal State University system but do not have the Cal State name in their names. Maybe San Francisco State is as well. All the other Cal States do. Some people call Fresno State, which is technically California State University-Fresno, "Fresno State University" or "FSU", which it technically isn't. I've seen it also abbreviated as "FS", which works maybe a little better, but technically its "CSU-F" or California State University-Fresno.

My preference would be to make California State University-Fresno the flagship campus of the Cal State U system. All the other Cal States are too close to the major cities of the state and/or their greater metro areas (LA, SF Bay Area, SD, Sacremento), save Cal State University-Chico. Although non-land grant, Fresno State also has an agricultural college, and serves the vast Central Valley region. It seems to take on some of the geography of urban vs. rural as a flagship. It reminds me sorta of Texas Tech University in the Panhandle of Texas and serves as sorda a defacto flagship for the vast Western Texas region, although according to Texas law, Texas Tech is not a flagship. Only UT and A & M are. I would also make Fresno State as a National Research University -- Doctorate Extensive, as it only provides very limited amount of doctorates. I would give it a medical school, and a law school along with an engineering school as well. The sports teams also could call themselves "Cal State".

However, if California state government would do what I just suggested, it would be very controversial as they would think they are favoring one campus over all the other Cal States. My understanding is that no non-UC campus in California can provide an extensive amount of doctorates and research. The Cal States are meant to be no more than undergraduate schools with master degrees and serve regional needs and the UC campus' are meant to be doctorate and research extensive and statewide institutional flagship campuses. This is also in their state constitution, IIRC.

Texas Western College is now known as the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). Prior to being called Texas Western it was known as Texas School of Mines, like Colorado School of Mines and the South Dakota School of Mines. It was originally a Mining school. Montana Tech of the University of Montana and Michigan Technological University as well as the University of Missouri-Rolla are also originally "Schools of Mines". There's also New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (Soccoro, NM) which is another "School of Mines". Also, the University of Wisconsin at Platteville used to be a school of mines.

Ncaanopaawaa2000, thanks for taking the time to elaborate on the question. Erskine College (Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church) is located in Due West, SC. It was on your list.

Maybe someone from Ohio knows better than I, but I believe that Kent State has always been officially called Kent State. I think people simply dropped the "State" in their name in a collaquial way, so it was simplier. Actually, Bowling Green State University, which shares a very similar history and role to that of Kent State (as well as similar type of location, small town near a midmajor metro city -- Akron/Kent = Toledo/Bowling Green) also does the same thing. Many people simply refer to BGSU as "Bowling Green", but I believe it too has always officially been named Bowling Green State University. I think they also do this so they sound simple like Miami U (OH) and Ohio U.


I could not find anything noting a name change related to the recent history of Kent State. I do recall for a couple of years or so, there was a preference on a sportscast to refer to the insitution as Kent which appeared directed from the institution. I remember sports commentators discussing it. Concur, I believe it was unofficial and a choice for a period.

Here's a dumb idea:

In honor of Marshal Mathers III, Oakland University becomes the second Candy Grant university (After Penn State-Hershey) and changes its name to Michigan M&M Universty.
