My Uni in the news

UtterlyBoring has a mention of Bradford Uni. It refers to a a BBC News article where Bradford Council criticise the university for spending £20 000 to find a new name, only to come up with “University of Bradford”, “The University of Bradford” and “Bradford University”.
While I can say that these were the most popular among staff and students, you wonder why the university didn’t poll us first internally, asking if we wanted a new name, and then if we did comission some researchers. As it, no doubt some of my my parents’ money has now gone to waste. Well done, Bradford.
