George Washington University to rename sports teams from "Colonials"

The George Washington University in D.C. will no longer be known as the Colonials, the university announced Wednesday, and the process has begun to work out what the new moniker will be.

“The Board of Trustees has decided to accept the recommendation of the Special Committee on the Colonials Moniker and discontinue the use of the moniker by the 2023-24 academic year,” said Patty Carocci, the associate vice president for alumni relations and community giving, in a statement.

“The board recognizes the significance of changing the university’s moniker, and we made this decision only after a thoughtful and deliberate process that followed the renaming framework and special committee recommendation that considered the varying perspectives of our students, faculty, staff, alumni and athletics community,” said Board Chair Grace Speights.

“We have evolved over our 200 years as an institution and a community,” said Christopher Alan Bracey, the university’s provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “Today, the moniker no longer does the work that a moniker should—namely, unifying the campus behind our academic and athletic institutional aspirations.”

Lemme guess ... they are changing the name to the "illegals".

To better reflect what they want their school to represent.
