Elizabeth City State University Keeping Its Name

A university in the east has decided its name is just fine the way it is.

The Daily Advance reports the year-long look into whether Elizabeth City State University should change its name is over, with university officials deciding there's nothing to gain from changing the name.

Some ideas that were considered were the University of North Carolina- Elizabeth City or Northeastern North Carolina University.

    I'm all for keeping the name the same. I agree with Jim it has served us well since July 1, 1969.

    Kudos to them!!! The name has served them well for many years. I applaud them for not folding to the pressure to become Politicaly Correct (PC). Hang in there E.C.S.U., I'm on your side!!!

    Northeastern North Carolina University? Wow. That's almost as bad as when they were thinking about making NC Wesleyan a UNC school, and I think they were going to call it UNC-Rocky Mount or something like that.
