Denver Post: Metro Won't Steal DU's Brand

(above) LetsGoDU objected to Metro State's proposed name change earlier this year

Whatever they decide to call Metropolitan State College of Denver in the future, we now know one thing: it won't be "Denver State University."

"We have been given a very clear message from the legislature that we need to propose a different name," university President Stephen Jordan said in a statement this week.

Last spring, after a round of consulting with marketing specialists, and community leaders, and surveying students, Metro leaders chose Denver State as the school's new name (read entire article).

Keep in mind that Penn State was mistakenly called the "University of Pennsylvania" last week by the New York Times in an article about child molestation.

Steal DU's Brand? Who are you kidding. DU will lose the public opinion battle to Metro. They already have in the comments both online and in print.

DU also represents Wall Street, while Metro represents Main Street. People will see this decision as overstepping by DU.
