Victoria University of Wellington has recently announced that it is considering changing the name of our institution to provide "clarity" and to prevent other University's across the globe taking credit for our institution's research and other work. This is a ridiculous idea and takes away our identity as Vic students. Let's be realistic here, not once have I ever referred to myself as a student of Victoria University of Wellington. I'm from Victoria', 'I go to Vic', these are the ways we identify with our institution, if we were to change our name to something as simple as 'University of Wellington', people might just think we go to Massey, and no one wants that. If leading academics and prospective students are really getting confused by a name like Victoria University of Wellington, then those people are probably not the kind that the University is aiming to attract. Maybe they should attend a lecture on how to use Google first. Let's not create a problem where there isn't one, let's stay Victoria University of Wellington.
