House suggests new names for Mesa State

By Charles Ashby

When the bill to rename Mesa State College to Colorado Mesa University came up in the Colorado House this evening, a few lawmakers couldn't help themselves with some other suggestions for what it should be called.

First, Rep. Kevin Priola, R-Henderson, suggested Palisade University, or PU or short. While that got a few laughs, it didn't get as many as the substitute name offered by Rep. Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver.

He wanted to name it after the school's president, Tim Foster, a former member of the Colorado House from back in the late 80s and early 90s.

Foster University, or FU for short.

Then Rep. Don Coram, R-Montrose, suggested the new unversity should open a branch in his town.

Then it could be called, FU-2.

As is often said around the Capitol, it would be an insult to juveniles to call legislative humor juvenile.

The bill passed, of course. Without amendments. It's to get a third and final vote on Friday, and then will head to the governor for his signature.
