10 names better than Metro State's latest rebranding picks
Big logos below.
Back in March, Metro State's Board of Trustees announced their plan to change the school's name to Denver State University -- a lackluster choice that also managed to piss off the folks at the University of Denver. So Metro is now asking students to choose among three new possibilities -- all a helluva lot more boring than our suggestions, which are on view below complete with matching logos capable of luring new enrollees in droves.
The latest picks -- Metropolitan Denver State University, Denver Metropolitan State University and Denver State Metropolitan University -- sound as if administrators chose the first labels that popped into their head and then shifted them around a few times. Would the next two choices have been University Metropolitan State Denver and Denver University State Metropolitan? Or did they consider using some words more than once -- like Metropolitan University Metropolitan or Denver Denver State State State?
Whatever the case, it's not too late to consider some alternatives we first shared in the post "Top 10 names for Metro State better than Denver State University." Count 'em down below.
10. Denver Awesome College of Sharktiger
9. Dr. Reefer's Mile High Institute of Bud Tending and Ounce Counting
