For the last time and then I am done with this thread: I was told this by someone who is on the board/committee that made the decision. Anything else that I write will just be repeating myself and appear gratuitous, so I will bow out.

I can't see the school transitioning to a 4 year college. Without leaving Greenville county you can get degrees from Furman, Bob Jones, Clemson. USC, USC Upstate, SC State North Greenville University and Anderson University. Greenville Tech is about the only game in town for the type of education they offer, and there's enough demand for it that they have more students than Clemson, Furman and USC Upstate combined.

I heard from a wood board that ITT Tech was buying Greenville Community Techolege!

This thread reminds me of the show Community.

All this bickering is kind of cute. Kind of like a daycare.

Changing the name is pointless without any obvious benefits. There's my contribution.

That's exactly why I was saying it just wouldn't really make sense to me. Kind of a "Know your niche" scenario.

And you think these are the areas that schools like MIT, VA Tech, GA Tech, etc. specialize in?????? LOL

No. I did not say that. It is a Technical school providing AS degrees in Technical fields.

Right, and not the disciplines that the aforementioned schools specialize in, which is why it makes no sense to rename it the "South Carolina Institute of Technology" as another poster stated (which is the initial post I was responding to).
