What’s That Place Called

Cook College has been debating what to change its name to as a result of the reorganization of undergraduate education at Rutgers. My favorite paragraph of the story was as follows:

“I’m not going to speak of which way to go, one way or the other, but the student perspective is that we don’t want our name to be changed at all,” said Cook College Council member Chris Bylone, a senior. “Just like Harvard and Yale have one name and are known for something, Cook is known for something right now. We are known across the country as Cook, so why change something that is good?”

Trust me when I tell you that on the name recognition scale, Cook College is not in the same league as Harvard or Yale.
