Stuck in the middle with you
Name change idea stirs up passions at MTSU
Would moving the "U" in MTSU really bring the school fame and fortune?
So say a vocal number of students and alumni of Middle Tennessee State University who want to change the century-old school's name to the University of Middle Tennessee.
University of Middle Tennessee, they say, just has a certain ring to it.
"The moniker MTSU isn't widely known outside of Middle Tennessee," said MTSU alumnus Chad Wood, who got blank looks from his out-of-state colleagues when he told them where he studied. "Some of my co-workers in Georgia and Maryland thought Middle Tennessee State was a branch campus of Tennessee State."
