UIS Keeping Prairie Stars Name


The University of Illinois Springfield is sticking with tradition. 

 

After months of considering possible new options for a team name and mascot, university officials say the school will keep the Prairie Stars nickname that it has used since the 1970s. 

 

A message from Chancellor Susan Koch says the name is an important part of the school’s tradition and heritage, and is meaningful to both students and alumni.  A task force had studied the issue and couldn’t reach a consensus, but the chancellor says she’s confident that keeping the Prairie Stars name is the right move.
