same university, new name

UWS logoAt the end of November, website like this the University of Paisley changed name, information pills identity and therefore logo and image. I am now a student of the University of the West of Scotland. I for one am happier with the new name and logo since it looks more professional, serious and important. Nevertheless, there are people (mainly Paisley inhabitants and fans) that do not agree with the change arguing that there’s a hundred or so years of history that will be forgotten. While I understand their worries, I have to disagree. The University grew due to the merger earlier this year (i think!) with Bell College down in Hamilton, as a consequence the new name had to mark this expansion and the evolution of this institution.

  1. Funny–the University of Missouri just changed its official name. Perhaps it’s a trend with all the schools you attend!
