MOORHEAD -- If you haven't gotten used to the name Minnesota State University Moorhead, you may not have to.

President Edna Szymanski said she'd like to switch the name to Moorhead State University Minnesota.


Szymanski has gotten permission from the university system to do some market research on a possible new name.

The university changed its name in 2000 from Moorhead State University to Minnesota State University Moorhead.
