UCDCD? [Apr. 4th, 2006|08:41 am]

Most UCD students know, we've moved from being "University College Dublin" to "University College Dublin, Dublin"... but how many knew we moved to UCDCD?

I was looking at a Red Bull competition poster - the task of the competition being incredible endeavour of building a paper aeroplane that flies the furthest. It was on yesterday, and looked like it could be fun.

However, I noticed the time and date of the heats - 3rd april, 11am in UCD sports hall. Fine, so it seems I missed it, but the regional finals were down as being held on 7th April in "UCD College, Dublin". Expanding out UCD that then becomes "University College Dublin College, Dublin".

What next? PIN Identification Numbers?

Jesus Aoife. PIN Personal Identification Numbers. Get it right.

Apparently Tallaght's now become ITT Dublin. Institute of Technology, Tallaght, Dublin. Colleges must now have redundancies and full addresses in their names to be legit.

Don't forget ATM machines.

Actually, UCD College Dublin could be a recursive acronym. But the unimaginative bastards in suits sitting in an office somewhere who decided on this whole naming scheme prolly don't understand what that is :P
