ATG Quirkies: The Tweet Sixteen of College Names

by | Mar 23, 2018 | 0 comments

In a recent post in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Steve Kolowich recounts how he set out to find the college with the best name.  And now, he’d like you to help him pick the final winner.

Using a 2018 higher-education directory, Steve narrowed the choices to a field of 64 colleges, enough to create a    Best College Names Tournament with brackets much like the  NCAA basketball tournament. The first round was run in four-way heats with the winners determined by a Twitter poll. The tournament has progress through the “Tweet Sixteen,”; to the”Eltweete Eight”; and at long last, to the final showdown.

And this is where you come in. Voting is now open! The end of the Best College Names Tournament is in sight. It’s SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY vs. MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE.
