A guide to the new University of North Dakota names


Now that the University of North Dakota has retired its “Fighting Sioux” mascot, the school has been changing the names of associations and programs affiliated with the old name, the Grand Forks Herald reports.

(It has no replacement, because by law it’s not supposed to take on another mascot or nickname for a few years.)

Here are the first three changes mentioned by the paper:

The Fighting Sioux Club, the official fundraising arm for UND Athletics, has been renamed the North Dakota Champions Club.

Sioux Crew, which promotes student involvement and attendance at UND Athletics events, has been renamed NoDak Nation.

The Sioux Boosters club has been renamed the UND Boosters, and the weekly fan luncheons have been renamed the UND Fan Luncheon.
