OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Christian University won't be
changing its name.
For several months, university officials have considered changing the school's name out of concern that it's too regional and too easily confused with other schools.
Suggested names for the 2,000-student school in Oklahoma City
included Eagle University or Libertas University. None of the proposed names included "Oklahoma" and few included the word "Christian."
But during a chapel service on campus Monday, university President Michael O'Neal said the name "Oklahoma Christian University" enjoys goodwill and is highly regarded both locally and nationally.
O'Neal says he thinks the university can build increasing brand value by keeping its name.
Oklahoma Christian has about 2,000 students and is affiliated with the Churches of Christ.
