University says it won't change its name

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Christian University will not be changing its name.

For several months, university officials had looked into a potential name change for the school in far northern Oklahoma City, surveying various campus constituencies during the process.

But during a chapel service on the campus Monday, university President Michael O'Neal said the name "Oklahoma Christian University" enjoys goodwill and is highly regarded in the local and national community.

O'Neal says he thinks the university can build increasing brand value by keeping the name.

Oklahoma Christian is a private college affiliated with Churches of Christ. It has an enrollment of about 2,000 students.
