I remember one of my first interviews on the civilian side of my career. The HR rep said oh you're from Old Dirty U, this was a lady in her 50s so I played it cool and said yes, Old Dominion 04-cheers Then she went on to tell me how many employees they had from Old Dirty and how bad some sucked at their job. Glad I dodged that company they folded a few years after interviewing with them.

Yikes. Thats why I hate the nickname, Ol Dirty. At least when it was Old Drunk, or Over Dose, there was a party association. JMU says theirs stands for "just missed UVA", which isn't a bad thing really. When your brand is "ol dirty", and your own students can't list anything they like about the school more than "diversity" you have a brand problem.

That HR lady was completely unprofessional to even say that. My guess is she likely couldn't have gotten into ODU. Years ago, I had an opposite experience, where I went on a job interview and I told the person I went to ODU. The guy asked "did you graduate", I said yes, and his response was "thats great, ODU isn't that tough to get into, but you need to be pretty smart to graduate from there". I got the job.

When I went to school in the late 90s, a JMU coed said, "you go to Old, Dumb and Ugly" ...

that perfectly explained who were in my 300/400 level mechanical engineering courses with me. that's the sad part!

Maybe we could become SE Virginia State.

Seems to work for Middle Tennessee State and Western Kentucky.

Sounds more like a regional mental hospital

Might as well call it Fake Coastal Carolina University. FCCU, FU for short.

We are often referred to as “The Harvard of the South” so let’s go with that...

How about we keep it simple and go with the less it more philosophy. Get it of the ODU on the jersey's and go back to OLD DOMINION on the jerseys. We need to get away from the alphabet soup moniker and be who we are OLD DOMINION.

As for the 757, that is a selling point, not a positioning point.

Seriously. Theres no point discussing changing the name. Its been that way for over 80 years. You don't give up that kind of name recognition. The only way I would ever consider that if I had a say was if ODU, NSU, CNU and EVMS all merged together or something crazy like that.

How about CWMN?

College of William and Mary Norfolk?

Then we’d finally have a medical school.
