What does that do to Southeast Missouri State(SEMO)?

If SMS deserves a name change then doesn't SEMO?

Yes, one would think so. The folks in Springfield have for several years considered SMS to be on par with Mizzou. They base this on enrollment-20,000 or more, and, the success of the men's and women's BB teams- and the exposure brought in. The Hammonds family give a LOAD of money to SMS- very new looking campus etc. The students, alums all have a very strong liking to the school.

Apparently the MO legislature is on a roll. Missouri Southern can drop Joplin from it's name, and Harris Stowe will become university status. Central Missouri State has the option to become University of Central Missouri.According to most recent articles. Southeast has not asked for any name change- they recently dropped Indians for Redhawks. Northwest Missouri has no requests to change it's name either.Rumor has had them joining the Uof Missouri system- they deny any interest.

I remember a few years ago name changes were common.

SMS has agreed not to duplicate any of Mizzou's programs etc-- could hurt somewhat for future growth and desires.
