What’s in a name?

The name of a local school always gives me pause.  UMUC.  University of Maryland University College.  You’d think with all of the great minds available to academia a better name would be chosen.  Everytime I hear it I feel the need to scratch my head.  How do they classify their programs?  Program of Business Program Department?  Department of Music Department Program.  School of Education School Program?

    I just love it because the acronym is U-MUCK! LOL!

    How about a cheer for Norfolk University?

    “We don’t DRINK!”
    “We don’t SMOKE!”
    “Norfolk, NORFOLK!”

    It sounds funny, if you yell it out loud, and pronounce Norfolk correctly.
