UIS to hold forums on proposed nickname change
The conversation at the University of Illinois Springfield continues regarding the consideration of a change in the Prairie Stars nickname. Over the summer, a consultant was hired to develop options, and four new nickname choices were created. Keeping Prairie Stars is an option, as is Stars (dropping Prairie). In all, a total of six options are on the table. In order to garner feedback, UIS held three open forums on campus. The campus community, students, alumni, faculty/staff, and friends were invited to attend and share their thoughts on the six options. After feedback is compiled, Chancellor Susan Koch will decide on how to move forward.
