Our friends Downtown with the massive inferiority complex and pockets full of taxpayer money want to change their name from "Metro State." What to do, what to do?
After they tried to poach DU's identity with the moniker "Denver State University," the Colorado Legislature firmly told them, "Not on our watch."
Unbelievably, Metro's brain trust went back to the drawing board & came back with three of the most stupid names in US higher education history; Denver Metropolitan State University, Denver State Metropolitan University or Metropolitan Denver State University.
Here's the dealio. Either stick with "Metro State" or come up with something original. DU may be taking the lead on opposing the name change, but rumor has it that CU & CSU are quietly working behind the scenes to scuttle Metro's name change as well.
