University of Edwardsville

This guy thinks SIUE should get a life of its own too. He also brings up a point I forgot to mention in my most recent post on the subject – SIU School of Medicine is in Springfield. That’s a little more problematic than the Edwardsville thing, but what’s with Springfield having to steal names from TWO state universities? Next thing you know Lincoln Land Community College will be seeking a franchiseship with Parkland Community College (Parkland Community College at Springfield). Why not upgrade the city name as well: New York City in Illinois. Then we could have the “University of Illinois at New York City in Illinois”. Sounds pretty impressive.

Yes, South Western Illinois University sounds very nice indeed.
