Maybe you’ve heard that there’s a
mass movement couple of people circulating a petition to change Penn’s name in light of the Penn State scandal and, we guess, our general feeling of inferiority from such a plain name. But you probably haven’t heard the naming alternatives being whispered in only the most powerful of circles. Here’s our exclusive scoop on the shortlist of Penns that could be (yeah, we absolutely made these up).
- Huntsman University
- University City University
- THEOP: The Old Penn
- #notpennstate University
- As one commenter wrote, “PENNterest. If it’s gonna be mistaken anyway, side with 2,000% growth! ” (But seriously, when is our Pinterest invite gonna come through)
- The “Jewniversity of Pennsylgaysia!” Have you guys heard that one???
If you have any of your own suggestions, do share.
