AC to AU

Welp. Today was the day. Of all days in Asbury's history. We have officially become Asbury University [academic excellence & spiritual vitality]. I feel like I may have just witnessed the most epic event of my life. And I don't use that term lightly. Contrary to some rather alarming opinions, I believe this switch has been rather advantageous in the life of our school. I will highlight some advantages.
1) When we say Asbury University and people don't know what we are talking about, they will immediately know that it's a legitimate institution and not make that fake smile that says "you dumb a**. Should've gone to a state school."
2) When employers read our resumes and don't know what AU is they will be more ok with that than if it still said AC.
3) People from foreign countries won't think I go to a prep school. They'll know it's the real deal.
4) We have the opportunity to come back and get a master's in, say, social work. Not that I would ever do that since it costs 90 bagillion green backs.
6) And finally, maybe the cafeteria will be inspired by the name change to also change some minor details in the caf [I'm not too much of a caf-hater but I would like some more fruit options and better pizza].

I'm glad I got the chance to document this momentous day.
