It was actually UNC President Bill Friday who tried this.

Quote:During the early 1960s, State College sought to change its name to signify its new role as a comprehensive university. In 1962 Consolidated University administrators proposed the name “University of North Carolina at Raleigh,” outraging almost everyone associated with NC State and prompting protests. An unsatisfactory compromise resulted in “North Carolina State of the University of North Carolina at Raleigh.” After more political wrangling, the name was finalized as North Carolina State University at Raleigh in 1965.
