A.K.A. Memorial University no longer "of Newfoundland", Part IV

Just came across this petition this weekend. There aren't many names yet, so pass it around!

The list of related posts/articles was last updated on Friday.

Here's a link to MUN's 2006-2007 university calendar, with the new branding.

Also check out the online Research Report, with the new branding. I found this link on the survey's info page. I actually kind of like the colour scheme, but find it unsettling that while the Government of NL is mentioned, the university is just called "Memorial University" - no Newfoundland.

The MUN logo change is now a Hot Topic for discussion over at Newfoundlanders Abroad.


  1. That calendar cover is nauseating.

  2. I signed the petition although it's always been my opinion that the only thing more useless and ignored than a written petition is an online one. What the hell, small steps.

    Btw, I'm curious about this, is University Releations all over your blog? I mean, by my statcounter I have about four different UR people visiting and they're swinging by multiple times a day. I'm swaying between finding it vastly amusing and quite creepy.

  3. I tend to be of the same opinion about petitions, but I figured it only took 30 seconds to sign, and a minute to upload here, so what the hell!

    And yes, I'm getting tons of hits from MUN several times a day too. Hopefully I'm not on some kind of hit list, because I know they know who I am! ;)
