No link, but I heard it yesterday from the horses mouth, someone that is on the actual committee. It's actually been changed already on a few websites.

Renaming to "Community College" sounds like a step down. Personally, I think they should have gone the other way with "South Carolina Institute of Technology." Alas....

Renaming it "community college" seems to imply the opposite.

That by no means needs to be permanent.

Agreed. It is cheesy sounding to me.

Don't see what the big deal is. It's just a name.

For a two-year school that doesn't even have a focus on truly technical disciplines like Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, MIT, etc.?????

At any rate, Spartanburg did the same thing a few years ago. Some states call their two-year schools technical colleges; some call them community colleges. No biggie.

In theory, it's no biggie to call it one or the other. The real question is why change it now? What benefit is there?

No biggie.
You do know that this is where most of the techincal skilled people in this area get their education don't you.? HVAC, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic technicians all get their degrees here. This is one of the reasons we have an influx of businesses in our area. We can supply the companies with a pool of maintenance employees.
