What’s in a Name?

The 93 year old South Texas College of Law has decided to change its name.  The only independent law school in Texas will soon be known as the Houston College of Law.  The STCOL board apparently believed that the school needed an even closer association with its home city.  Board Chairman J. Ken Johnson commented on the change

The law school has been an integral part of downtown Houston for almost a century. Our students are within walking distance of some of the nation’s biggest law firms and the city’s courthouses are in our back yard. With our diverse student body that mirrors Houston’s population, we will remain dedicated to educating future generations of attorneys.

Red for one does not really view Houston as being in South Texas.  Houston falls into its own category.  Will this require a lot of resume changing?
