UWM name change goes to student referendum
Next week Wednesday and Thursday, UW-Milwaukee students will cast a vote whether the name of the university should be change. The non-binding referendum coincides with the student government election.
The senators developed four different names for which the students can vote: Wisconsin State University, University of Milwaukee, Milwaukee State University and Milwaukee University. There will also be an option for students to vote to keep the name University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee as well as an option to write in a name of their choice.
If they choose “Milwaukee State University” the geography department is going to be embarrassed.
