You must be making this stuff up!

MCLA should close its doors and never be permitted to reopen. What a horrible college (oops, sorry, univeristy).

Now try untangle the logic here: MCLA is now considered a university, yet it choses to retain the Massachusetts "College" of Liberal Arts name? A college shingle with a university designatioin, right? Only at MCLA could twisted minds concock a morbid scenerio! Idiots!

Congratulations MCLA! Parties, classes, and dorm life are all part of the college experience. I graduated from MCLA with a BA in Mathematics and now I'm an engineer and I know plenty of other success stories of fellow students. MCLA was a great school which gives students great education.

(rhetorical question) Do 'universities' collect more tuition than 'colleges?'

Woohoo! They've finally named it what it really is to the taxpayers - F U.

Now, how much to change all the signs, letterheads, web sites, etc to the new names? During the worst economy since the great depression?

Massachusetts University of Liberal Arts sounds more like it! President Marty Meehan will get the name changed and all will be right in the world - move over Jack Wilson!
