COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) – The University of Maryland’s Byrd Stadium could soon have a different name.
Tracey Leong reports for WJZ.
Some have argued the football stadium is named after a man with racist beliefs, and this prompted the university president to form a group to evaluate their options.
“President Loh feels it’s really important to get as much campus input as possible, which is why he formed this committee, faculty, staff, students, this is their university, too,” said assistant vice president of marketing, Brian Ullmann.
According to one University of Maryland student, “The university should definitely take it into consideration,” said Frederique Thompson. “It will be like a domino effect where people are going to look for names to change.”
